I doubt it is a v2, it looks like it has a diffuser like the t bar cars.

Both Tamiyas previous scale bodied F1s have used the basic F104 chassis with the plastic F103 diff. The new Ferrari has a similar price to the others so i would expect it to be the basic fibreglass chassis, flex plate rear end, F104.

Hello all, I'm at the track putting some laps down for the first time with the V2 Pro. So far I'm loving it. I'm running Fred's 7/4/12 TQ Raceway set with the exception of running upright shafts in the trailing position. I'm getting some front end chatter turning into the 180's. I'm doping full rears and inside 3rd of the fronts. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Try putting 60K to 100K (or anywhere in between) diff fluid on the front king pins. It will settle the front end down and reduce or stop the chattering.

Thumbs up

I applied the 60k to the kingpins with no change. Actually the front end now seems to be a little lazy. my problem may be the speed in which I'm approaching the corner. The chatter is coming from the tires skipping across traction. Anywhoo, this car is a blast. My first real F1 and I cannot wipe the grin of my face. At the moment I only have one lipo for it. So I'm in agony for about 25mins between runs Looking for a race!

If no one in your area is racing f1, come over to indy some friday night. F1 is taking off slowly, about 5 a week, 9 or 10 if everyone showed up at once.

Hi Roy,

Just out of curiosity is there any reason why you put the spring washers this way )( for the one piece thrust bearing? I've just built my f104x1 with the one piece thrust bearing and the spring washers this way () as per the F104x1 manual.

Cheers

The diff with the washers like this---> )( will be smoother and the trustbearing will last longer that way.
If you use it per manual the lower/inside part of the washer will press on the brass inner part of the trust bearing and therefore isn't that smooth.
Diff stub is rubbing against brass part of trustbearing and so will the washers like you placed then.
)( and they will sit against the outer/rotating part of the bearing, thus smoother.
Bit strange to explaine but it is like it is
Haven't rebuild my diff in last years race season at all and it was still smooth at the end.

regards roy
