I ran Pits this weekend. I will work on Pardus also.

What is your current setup? I found my starting setup with the Pits had too much traction and rolled easily. Hope to get to the track tomorrow for some more testing.

Here's my F1R2
Really needs a motor with the wireing on top and not the back, next to no room to get the wires neat.
1st race this weekend, hope it goes as good as it looks.

You can run 16ag wire with 21.5 easily.

It fits, just a little tight. Change in gearing would probably help too

Currently I'm running
exotek adjustable Front arms . 1* camber , 6* caster. titianium coated kings pins , low friction balls , 20k on the pins , Tamiya silver front springs .
center shock has red Tamiya spring 30wt , 3 hole with 2 mm spacer on the inside . and 3 mm spacer under the front mount .
side springs are exotek kit springs , with 1 mm spacer under front ball mounts
side dampers have 20k in them ( I have tried 7, 20, 30, 50 , 75 K 20 seems to work the best)
rear diff is Tamiya f104 with a 103 bearing
ride height is 4 mm all the way around .
Car has a ton of steering and traction roll is not a problem . my main complaint is the rear end " fish tails " if you punch it and if you punch it to early out of a high speed turn it will almost spin 180

Maybe you could loosen the diff just a tad?

Questions?? Compatibility

Does the F1R2 front chassis plate bolt up to the rest of the original F1R?

Try:

More front droop - more weight transfer rearward on power
Stiffer center spring - jacks both rear tires into the track harder=more fwd grip
Stiffer side springs - jacks the tire into the track harder=more grip

Also, crank in a bunch of neg expo on the throttle. The Pardus tires do not have the same bite as the Pits. I run between -60 and -80 on my Futaba. Other than that, best advice is to not be too greedy accelerating out of the corners.

Try removing the spacers under the front of the links. I know it creates anti squat which should give you more forward traction. However it also increases roll steer which is why the problem is worse when accelerating out of hairpins.

Loosening the diff would make the car rotate even more and if too loose will shorten the diff life and kill acceleration.

Looks pretty good. I'll try to get a pic of mine posted up this weekend. I had fun trying to fit everything in and keep it low.

What is top sauce for Pits on asphalt?

I have been using white paragon but have been hearing good things about sxt on here but maybe that is just for carpet?
