Phil is right- the center link mount screws should not be tight. In fact the 2 3mm screws holding the center link to the rear pod should not be tight as well. Your uneven link movement means the center link is not adjusted right. Loosen the 2 3mm screws and try the suspension movement again. It should be noticeably free now. I like to leave the 2 screws loose enough that the center link can move by hand actually.

Mike, your site is 'out of stock' on the F1R... waiting for production or having something new coming? or is that a secret!

Hi! Guy's
Just wanna know about this F1 1/10 body. Are there any other size for this F1?
Is it only tamiya that makes the body?
Thankx in advance.

Hi, simply sold out- more in stock Thurs. F1R is at the pinnacle of 104 development so nothing new for now.

Hi, Correct, 12R5.1 links and springs are direct fit.

Beth - someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the standard springs are blue ones (5.6lb). I've got a limited collection and can't quite remember which ones came with the kit.

My rebuild is going well - got the pod working really smoothly now, but I'm agonising over the placement of the electronics...

Thanks for that Mike,

Going to pick it up on the way to the track this afternoon

It will be interesting to see the difference on the track over the F103 setup.

Beth.

The Yeah Racing 1 piece rear pod will not work with the F1R. There is no place to mount the roll damper.
