Hi Everyone,

I am building my first RC F1 - an F104V2.

I am mounting a low profile servo but have a question about the ball studs. On Tamiya's website it describes this option and says that:

"The only thing one must do is add 4mm of spacing to the steering linkage ball connector attached to the servo horn. Tamiya item 53539 is the perfect spacer set for this application."

I have ordered the spacer set but then realized that the ball stud shafts won't be long enough to put a 4mm spacer on and still attach the nut.

Can anyone tell me if there is a long shaft ball stud I need to use - and the part number if available?

Is the spacer absolutly necessary?

I would be interested to hear what other have done, since it seems like most use the LP servo option.

Sorry if this has been covered but I searched for hours with no luck!

Thanks in advance!

You need the 5x8mm ball stud like this:

Adding shim is not absolutely needed. It's more of a tuning thing.

You don't need any special parts to get 4mm of shims under the ball nut. Simply get 2 3mm screws that are long enough to reach through the servo saver, the shims, and give enough threads to screw into the kit supplied ball nuts. Problem solved...

You can vary the amount of shims under the ball nut to adjust bump steer.

Just a quicky .... don't want to derail this new thread.

The Fireball Classic, held at Lincoln/ Nebraska, is going to include F1 this year. As long as enough turn up of course.

Look up Fireball classic on the Nitro on-road thread.

Thanks all.

Regards
BM

Is anyone running Futaba's 4PLS radio with their V2 Pro? Need some advice on how to adjust Off Throttle Braking (Drag Brake?), Throttle Curve (i.e.. traction control) etc. I've figured out the basics but the manual is a bible and most guys at the club I'm racing at are running Airtronics & other non-Futaba brands. The rear end wants to step out going straight at full throttle. I'm thinking this radio has the capability to have a progressive or delayed throttle response as opposed to Wide Open Throttle at 100%.

Thanks for any tips in advance.

It is called expo on the Futaba transmitters.
That is on the steering and throttle channel.
Also the ESC can be fine tuned.
Most ESC's have a throttle profile from smooth to agressive.
Check your manuals.

Thanks for the reply. Will look in to a manual for my ESC. Bought the car slightly used with a new Hobbywing "Just Stock" ESC but no manual for it. Will have to search online.

I will definitely be there with my F1! I know several others are also planning to be there. On top of the usual group, about 5 more people recently got F1 cars in this area. So hopefully we have a nice big group to race in the Fireball Classic and the rest of the HOA series!

I have the exact speedo. Before I touch the radio, I would turn down the punch rate(start mode).The default is 7, turn it down to 2 or 1 especially if you are running rubber tires. If you have good traction, turn punch rate 1 higher number at a time to find a setting you like.

Thank you! I was wondering which would be ideal to adjust first, the radio or the ESC.

It's been nearly 20 years since I last races and was doing asphalt oval racing. I was fairly competitive but I was known as the concourse king. If you're wanting an authentic F1 scheme, I've got the time to do it as I'm out on workers comp & have lots of spare time.

There is a professional company that does decals and custom painting and their jobs are top notch. F1PaintLab is the name.
