Nice work on consolidating links for the VII
The vast amount of articles, setup sheets, tuning info plus spares & hop-ups, are in part, what set Tamiya and the new VII apart from the rest

Hop-Up X1 damper tube, 30k is a good baseline setup
Heavier damping will increase steering response, but will also increase chance of traction roll on high grip tracks

Hey rob I just got the bearing but the paper included dont seem to specify which way to put the washers, ill try your way though and see. Now my question is do I add that black grease or put it in as is??

what tires and rims are you guys running on carpet? It's racing carpet with good traction once a racing line has been established.

In my GT2 car I've been using sweep 28's, track temp is around 12 to 15 C if that helps!

You will find the tyres of choice are usually Pit Shimizu 571 front/572 rear or Tamiya TCS tyres, same tyre different name on the packet. http://uf1rc.com/2011-rubber-tire-review/

My own particular favourites are 574 front/573 rear.

Is this a genuine Tamiya part? It was on a car I bought used and I would like to use it on the f104v2 but need to know if it will be legal for TCS.
Thx.

I just finished building a F104 v2.



I have 571, 573, 574 fronts,
and 575, 578, 579 rears.
What would be the best combination for carpet?

Thx.

The guys at our track swear by the 571/575 combo.

My f104v2 wants to steer right on power. I think it's tweaked but I don't know where. I checked everywhere and the chassis seems perfect. I am new to the Tamiya F1 chassis so I have no idea what could have been wrong. Any idea guys?

Tamiya shock. TCS legal. Also looks like the shock top and bottom from Exotek. I think they use to come in blue. They might be out of stock right now.

yeah, that's the very popular (and expensive) TRF damper: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=1446

It's TCS legal. The gold shaft looks pretty torn up though; if those are scratches and pits, the shock won't operate smoothly.

What esc are most people using? I think its my esc thats too hard on the wot curve and cant put the power down. Brakes are on or off its hideous. This is a kyosho perfex esc that nothing cant be adjusted. .
