Anyone with F-ONE 017 here? I just got mine couple day ago. But I have issue with the upper turnbuckles hitting the body. Anyone have this issue?

Are you using the stock body? I have the 16 and have no issues with it hitting the body. Got a picture?

You can see both turnbuckles are hitting the body.

Ah I see whats wrong. On the 16 we mount the servo the other way round so the turnbuckle is super short. That clears the cockpit and it wouldnt hit the body. Mounting the servo the way as they instructed would allow for a longer turnbuckle and easier adjustment, but would interfere with the body.

Im not sure why they would do that....are you running the long wheelbase or short wheelbase? Running the short wheelbase pushes the front end back could result the steering interfering with the body as well

Long wheelbase. I think I will switch the servo position and changing to shorter turnbuckles.

Anybody using Shimizu Racing tires on WRC F-ONE? What compound and wheels do you use?
It's for CRC carpet, any suggestion?

Thanks

I dont race carpet, but from what everyone uses and recommend, pit's 571 572 combo for carpet is a good starting point. Coat the side walls of the tire with CA if you are experiencing traction roll.

571/572 tires
Tamiya or Exotek wheels
glue front sidewalls up to tread
Soft springs
Dope fronts at 1/2 and adjust as needed
