Exactly same color alloy like X1, nice!


I have a question about the hop-up carbon damper mount that I installed with few other bits: (ceramic balls,thrust bearing, carbon shaft,tit.king pins,12.9 hex hardware)

It is a lot thinner then the plastic stock part, do I add spacers to make the setup same height as the stock or just same spacers then stock?

make the damper lower would give your car more steering while raise it will give you more traction at rear

Thanks.

Any thoughts what would be good starting setup using 21.5t ,pit 571 / 572 combo on med/high grip carpet.

What shock oil? -springs ? (stock shocks)


I have been racing my X1 for a while now but this is my first link car and would like to test some basic setup b4 the seasons last race on saturday.

I am the points leader, but next race can still change that..

(still thinking I should ust the X1 on that race but if this could be faster ...)

Default F104 Lower Front Suspension Arm #51381

Does anyone else make stronger lower front suspension arms for the F104?

The Tamiya ones (#51381) seem to break quite easily where the droop screw is attached.

Try wider front wing. It will take the hit instead of the front tire when you hit something. The tierod won't hit the droop post any more in crashes.

That type of breakage is usually the result of the steering knuckle being jammed into the droop posts. I've seen that type of break when someone smacks into the wall really hard, fast and often.

I'm not the best driver out there and haven't broken either the lower or upper arms although I've bent the uppers a few times.

Also the result of someone having their steering travel too high. Turn it down on your radio to the point it just isn't touching the post.

need more information on the setup you gave...

400 oil in pitch damper... what does it do to the car when using lighter oil vs heavier oil? does it give more traction using lighter oil or it does not nothing to do with the traction?

What about the spring stiffness? is softer spring better on high grip carpet track? if yes then why? What the function of this spring on the traction, etc.

sorry to ask you this question.... since i want to know more on how to set up the car properly so when i find trouble on the car i can fix it quickly instead of using someone setup without knowing the change that i make...

Thanks

I found that originally the main frame is horizontal. so I mounted the spacers rear axle bearings "0". Now I have 4.5 mm at the front and 5.5 just before the pod. I also mounted the black side springs (prestressed 0.5 mm), one of tanguage black (prestressed 2 mm) and silver front. I replaced 3mm below the strut damper tanguage fixing by a 1 mm, the open front end of about 1 , the wedge mounted camber limited to 2 and the front droop (2 wedges mm under the screw heads).
I won the directivity, with foam tires untreated.
I intend to try soon, without spacers under damper tanguage setting, set the droop front as behind, filling the damper roll with 400 oil and gold side spring.
when I find what suits me, I will apply the treatment on the tires.
The purpose of these amendments is to get more weight transfer to the front when I let go of the throttle lever.P
P.S: I also set the drag brake 75% drag brake

Does anyone have a part number for the Alloy Tourning Car shock used to replace/Upgrade the original V2 shock? and a part Number for the optional spring kit too would be awesome.

Cheers

John

http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=3306

Does someone know which springs correspond from Supersoft to Hard?
Thanks
