You can sand down the toe block and get antisquat with the plastic bulkhead! about .5mm works great!

9mm rear ride height here , droop of 3mm over that. I use Ride tyres and like the rake for clearing bumps (less bottoming out ) and better turn in......

Any chance you could take a look and see if it would line up?

Fleetmaster I noticed your avatar is a pic of your FGX Lotus Renault R31.

Would you please post some more pictures of it? I would like to do up an FGX as the Lotus, and I would like to see how yours came out. Did you use BP Shadow's decals?

Where are you guys getting the anti squat shims from?
Would they be the stainless steel roll centre shims from the FF sedan?

or you just making them from plastic

I'm using the standard round washer shims from 3 racing. Just put a washer under the front adjustable suspension mount and tighten the screw. It has a big affect on the steering. I have run anywhere from 0.5mm to 1.5mm depending on traction. I think mantis has run even more than that. 1mm usually works good on carpet. Not sure about asphalt.

lightfoot, I really appreciate your dedication to F1 rc racing and the UF1 series as well as the UF1 website. However, my one request regarding the UF1 website gallery would be to show more pictures of the cars and less of people, please. Personally, when I look at your gallery, it's the cars I want to see. I live in New York State, and most of those people, with the exception of Tony Phalen, I don't even recognize. I want to see the cars they are racing. Just my two cents.

Point taken and noted I'm a people photographer and I just naturally gravitate to that ...
