I am thinking about switching this car to mod on foams if so i will have to do the same thing to use 104 foams. It takes a long time to grind out all of that webbing!

Just make sure when you slide the ring over that it is flush with the front side of the FGX wheel. At least on my car the 0571 fronts had waaaay too much steering so choose wisely on the pit fronts but also know that if you use the RIDE 104 front wheels all of the normal FGX tires fit that wheel.
Yeah... I've done the same thing and always wondered if Home Depot doesn't carry tubing the same diameter and thickness... also the cost of two wheels per tire

The red looks sweet!
Did you anodize all the red yourself?

Hi, never raced F1 before and looking at getting one. Does the front suspension on F1 just rely on the Flex of the lower arms?? If not how does the front suspension work?

I want one of those and we don't even race F1 in Dayton. That is very sharp.

Get one, let people drive it. You'll have an F1 class in Dayton in no time. That's how it starts.
