Holy run on sentence, try and use some punctuation even if your on a phone.

The front uses the traditional kingpin through spring suspension so I imagine the x-ray front springs would work.

As for the side springs, it doesn't use a traditional setup so you would need to find springs with similar diameter. I'm not sure what other spring would work, you will have to experiment yourself. You can add more preloaded to the side springs for now just to stiffen up the rear pod while you wait for your order.

Do you have a link to either the Facebook page or website.

Sorry for the long winded sentence.
Thanks for the heads up on the side springs, I'll take a look at some cars next outing on weds.
So far for tires all I did was glue the side walls, everyone was having problems with traction rolling in the sweeper and some other corners.

Thanks

The LM16 is pretty much exactly the same as the F1, just with a different body. I just picked up a Le Mans body and associated hardware. Hopefully I can finish the body and test it out soon. that car looks so weird without the front and rear wing

I don't know a LM16 thread, but I found this a while ago:
LeMans LMP1: 200mm Pan Class Discussion
But it's very quiet for some month allready ...

Anyone else have issues with tire rub in the front wheel well of the pro1 body? I had a severe push in corners and saw alot of black tire marks in the angled corners of the fenders where there was body rub. Cut out the body angles and no more issues. Not sure why the wheel wells weren't just molded to be round

Havent had a chance to run the F1 with the LMP1 body, been raining all week. I did do a lock to lock check and it seemed the molded reliefs clears the wheels and tires. Cant see a reason why it would bind. I see your running the stock wheel and tire setup where I have the new Ride GR tires mounted so that might be a reason why it rubs.

The class is box stock so kit wheels and tires are required. When i go full lock steering it doesn't rub but under heavy cornering loads when suspension compresses I get body scrub and the car pushes. I tried adding shims and wheel spacers but that didn't help. Saw no other choice but to just cut the angles on the wheel arches.

I wonder if they changed the compound, the set I have have no rear grip at all and will spin if I try to put any power down in corners. The front tires aren't bad. Dont have that much grip but drivable

Went to the track to test the LMP1 body out and I quite like it. The car pushes a lot more with the LMP1 body but the rear end is SUPER stable. In face, I think theres too much traction at the rear and not much down force in the front. I sauced the front tires entirely and left the rear bone dry and it still pushed.

I didnt do any setup changes with the car and still handled pretty well. Pretty surprised how stable the car was.
