What's a good starting setup for this car on high carpet?

-I have the option trailing axles, and not sure what spacing I need, as they are thinner than the stock axles and require more spacers.
-What oil should I start with, and what oil am I supposed specification am I supposed to use? (WT or CST)?

So when someone's setup says "900#" oil, is that Tamiya's spec? If so, what would that convert into AE weight oils?

When "upright spacers" says 3mm, is that supposed to be under or over the steering block?

900wt is the clear oil incll with the kit, not sure, but is similar to AE

When using Alu upright, run spacers on top, never on bottom
Adjust droop with screw, and shims on lower A-arm

Can I run the option uprights with the factory kingpin? The option shows two slots on paper for e-clips in the middle. The factory only have a ring for the set screw.

Yes, with option uprights, e-clips are not used

So, correct install should be:

-top e-clip > pivot ball > 3mm spacer > upright > bottom pivot ball > spring > bottom e-clip

And then set the upright against the spacer and tighten set screw?

Just sharing, from our Singapore GP. Out of 27 racers, the F104 v2 of Taka takes the win (even over a bunch of F103s). But of course, the driver is a monster.

Guys, putting my v2 car together - can I use a regular 64p spur? Looks like there is an off set. Thanks for any info.

Yes you can, just need the spur gear adaptor from Tamiya. I'm using Kimbrough spur gears on my V2.

So is the F104 ver. II Tamiya F1 kit the kit to have for asphalt and carpet? I have an X1 that tq'ed and won the Frederick, MD TCS race this year. Do I need to unload the X1 or will the X1 still be competitive?
