really great. just need a little more steering at the curve.
same here. I used crc pink rear w/ the high grip tamiya fronts, and the other guys were out turning me. I even went 100%F and 0%R for sauce, but still didn't turn sharp enough. The level of grip and wear is much better than the originals though. Going to get those standard bearing axles and test other compounds...

yes the turn in is too slow (onroad) i think it will go faster with more grip or even more negativ spur for more steering into. but the high grip tamiya also really good.

just need to fit a 5x8 MM flanged bearing in the fronts (jaco...shepherd...whatever) on the original tamiya axle.
works well!

what compound works well on the fronts? I'm thinking of trying magentas.

on another note, I tested the upper brace for the front end, and while it does make the car more responsive, I started to get outside coning. without the brace, it wore pretty evenly.

The geometry is going to be fairly odd with standard 12th scale wheels up front & CRC wheels on the back

Up front you will have much less width than stock

On the back you will gain much more width than stock, as CRC wheels have almost -0- offset

Not saying it won't get around the track, but it will be an odd setup for sure

So far I've found the Jaco wheels have the most offset, aside from Tamiya wheels, to keep things closer to original specs

You can try the F1 front uprights,they are not off set to the rear like the standard RM-01 uprights are.they will give you more steering.

so.
i tested the shepherd red. with a bit more negative spur. much more grip at the front.
on the rear i think the tamiya hop up are better. (could not test it, no tyres)
the track was not so clean like the last time.

well, I got the front axle for the standard bearing, and tried to fit them on.

with the crc wheels, they came out to about 162mm track width. You can probably get up to 166mm with some spacers.
The problem was the ride height. But after some grinding and shaving, I was able to get the max ride height to 6mm. From there, I can add spacers to lower the car, and take them out as the tire wears.

have about 4mm of foam on the wheel. how much can I run them down until I need to replace them?

I've finished races on the plastic, not with the RM though, cause the chassis will hit first

At the big races, on sticky tracks it is common to true tires down to 39.5 Fr, 41 Rr

i saw that someone asked a few pages earlier on if there was a build up blog, or site. has anyone since decided to do one, going to put one together for a buddy and thought it might be a good read.

Just build it like the manual,it goes together fine. Its the other things like different brands of tires and how to set it up that will break or make you.

Other than that is it a direct fit? Eg straight fits on with the different bearing/balls?
