what adjustment do I need to make to get more forward bite. med traction carpet
Right now, I try to roll on the throttle but I can hear the tires spinning. Cars I'm racing against seem to launch off the corner so much better than mine.

If you have a shorty pack try moving it froward. A buggy ride high (start 1mm tail higer than front) will be the best way to increment front grip.

Watch your droop! I keep it 1 front 1.5 rear (the car bites like a shark! )

Some images I've been taking the past two years as homage to on road / F-1 and TCS - enjoy!

Not sure if this was asked.

How is everyone mounting there steering servo?
Standing up like the kit says, or laying flat, with the servo saver on top, looking down at it?.Picture would be great.
Thanks
Its a 104 v2

I had the same question and read all over this thread and others. To me it seems most went with a low profile servo and mounted as attached. I'm a noob to F1, so I went my what seems to work for others. I'm In the finishing steps of completing my build and can't say how it works for me just yet.

A low profile setup is ideal because there is no bump steer with the links being straight, instead of at a steep angle going up. Try to put the steering links as parallel to the lower arms as possible as a starting point.

Calm down I was in your position about a year ago. I went for the F104v2 and didn't regret it. Is it for fun or do you want to race it? For 180mm width it is a good car. For 190mm you would need to make a small conversation. For 200mm you should go for the F104w. For needed hot ups you should check the Tamiya America website. I for myself upgraded my F104v2pro with everything except for the aluminum servo mount.

You should check 3racing FGX or F113 or the TRG-line of F1 cars also. Like touring car most F1 cars have a similar speed level. A speed difference makes the width and a dampened front axle (F113).
