Sadly I will not be able to make it to the third race, but hopefully I will be able to see what my FGX would be able to do

A couple of quick questions. Camber, caster. 64 pitch gears, a good starting point for a pinion and spur. Do people use the kit to widen the car out to 190?
I need some help as this is all new to me.

thanks
chuck

Assuming you have a 104: Setup info on the UF1 page. Lots of good stuff on the web site. Take some time to look it over.

Some racers do widen the car, but it is not necessary.

I don't know if there is any interest or not, but bring those car to Maryland. We have a decent F1 crowd out here.

Do you race with the UF1 format? Once you try it, you will want to throw rocks at anything else...

The car is an Exotek with pretty much all the good stuff. Going to be run on carpet on a track approx. 90x40 with high bite. Just looking for a baseline to start with. Camber, caster, springs gearing with 64p gears.

thanks

Chuck - I think a 190mm car is helpful on the Pardus tires.
