What size are Turnbuckle Shafts in front of FF-03? I want to replace aluminum ones.
Thanks.

Have run the FF-03 a little the last three days now and I'm absolutely in love with this car!

The setup as built per instructions is already very good. Just make sure you check the droop is equal and that the rear dampers are not limiting rear droop. Needed to unscrew the ends a bit.

Í made a front roll-bar out of parts I had, using the H (hard) front bar made for the 416 together with some 32mm turnbuckles and the neccesary cups, balls and other hardware. This allows you to be a lot more aggressive going into the turns and makes the car really fun to drive.

The FF-03 has a lot of steering and carries amazing corner speed. It's fairly quiet and is really good over kerbs, and the realism is just great!

+ YouTube Video

What tires are you running? Are they the same front and rear?

thanks for the vid! Seems like it turns really good without the rear stepping out. Can't wait to run it against the 4wd in the stock spec class. Wonder how it will do with the super stock? Weight will the biggest advantage.

I'm not familiar with the hara inserts, are they a hard, medium or a soft?

Anyway it is great to hear that the tires are the same front and rear, and it looks that good.
