Nice, looks like almost a clone setup of mines. Same electronics layout, R-sector wide setup, and steel shaft/counterweight. Even the stock arms and Xray servo saver!

I'm removing the wide setup though. I need a trailing axle setup for the front.

Hi! Kit tires FTW!

Yes, you would have to use a camber gauge with the wheel off and see how the pin lines up regarding the caster. There are some sedan tools for caster checking but they are all clunky. Eyeball is still the way.

None the less I've got a set on order to try soon.

Guessing an F1R2 complete kit can't be too far away once the IFS is out? Not exactly many parts left from a f104 now.
Hi,
The wheel and outter bearing covers up the the thrust and washers so no issues with that

Trying to find more info on these options
Short wheelbase might give you more on power traction but less stable mid corner (or more responsive depending on how you look at it lol). Opposite for longer wheelbase.

I see the pic above looks like he's running the ifs? What rear wing is that?

Car was great last night. Amazing how when traction would come up the car would go away quickly. I was TQ by a lap in first qual, running a 9.8 to their 10.1 and 10.4. Second qual, car had tons of steering and rear would suffer because of it. Lost TQ, we all got quicker. My 9.4 now, to their 9.6. Race time, I went to the golds on the front steering kingpins, from silvers. Still copper side springs, still neon yellow center spring. Car at this point couldn't corner without picking up the inside tires. Traction roll. How can I tune that out? Back to soft fronts? Stiffer side springs?

The rear wing is the F60 wing with Tuning Huas carbon side plates
I will let mike make a comment about the first question..

What kind of surface are you racing on? I would assume carpet if the car is traction rolling and lifting the inside tire. I don't know a lot about the Tamiya springs and find i am most comfortable with the Associated 0.016 front springs and Associated black side springs. If youre running on asphalt i really like the stock Associated Silver spring and the same 0.016 front. typically from my experience a stiffer side spring will settle the car down in the corner.

Also one thing to consider: if your main shock is too stiff it can cause the car to roll more in the side suspension. if the shock is so stiff that it will not let the car transfer weight front to rear, the only place that the car can get rid of that energy is through pushing on the side springs. To counter this I run a really soft main spring and find that the car drives a lot flatter because it can transfer weight and let the car work more mechanically. I run the Tamiya flouresent red spring (looks like orange to me) with 20 weight Associated oil. It sounds really light but I have found it to work well most everywhere.

I go back n forth with that flourescent red/orange spring and the neon yellow spring-currently on yellow. Copper side springs (softest I believe) and gold front springs (stiffest).
