Placing the shorty forward will help with rotation.

[QUOTE=Mr.juarez;11612836]



Went and practiced some more today. As you can tell by the pics the roughness of the track. Im running the pits front and back and its pushes just as bad as the rides f1 tires. I added the aluminum rear diffuser and lower plate and it did gain traction in sections where I would spin out before. Everything is stock according to the manual at the moment, but I did get the front and side springs yesterday so if anyone has a suggestion please do tell.

Pitch damper has 30 oil and 20 the side one. God I love this class!!! :Ive gone with black side springs on mine and its probably a dustier track than you

What is with the crack in the asphalt? Is the track that bad?

Hey thats sealed a few months ago. Add the cold weather (40ish) and cloudy and it becomes tokyo drift later on. Oh and there is no traction spray either as it gets cold it comes off then we really go for rides. But hey better than nothing though

Silvercan has much more rpm than 21.5

3:1 is a good start point for 21.5

We ran 17.5's in F1 at the Nationals in November and they were much harder to drive than 21.5's. Like you I turned down my throttle EPA in my v2 until I got the hang of it. Luckily we've now standardised on 21.5 in Australia for national events although some tracks still run 17.5.

Here's a promo video we've just finished to get everyone hyped up for F1 in 2013. The footage was from our Cup Series which was won by a v2.

Great to hear you're finding our site useful.

In particular we have a v2 page which has a compilation of links to reviews, builds, tech articles, setups, etc. Hopefully it won't keep you from your sleep for too long

I see rossimega noted that he was using a damper tube -- anyone else using it on carpet. thinking of trying it. I don't feel the shock is consistent from multiple runs. or is it just mine?
