Weak spots we have found on the car are: Turnbuckles in combination with the cutouts in the arms for camber adjustments make this a weak area. Rods in the front should be replaced with Lundsford pieces. The ride height adjuster in the rear is also a weak area. We also need to know the rate of the shock springs or just replace it with an oncore shock and springs. Other than that the car is very good and easy to drive and tune.

I believe that the center shock is the same that is used in their other cars, as well as the springs. If that is the case, the following chart should help:

Is this the 200mm kit or something else? UF1 rules that we follow, limit the cars to 190.

I have tried it and loved it. But like what other people were saying the weakest part on this f1 car is the front. Broke on of the arms. But for the time I did have it wide it was great.

I have both and the only real diff. I have seen is that the flash is alot more fragile when in a hard crash situation. Have lost both front arms and rear bearing carriers with wall slaps. Only thing lost on the 101 was a servo saver. With the same setup on both cars they both run the same lap times and drive the same to me anyway. the 101 is just more durable and a little harder to setup on frontend. Kinda limited on settings you can quickly put on the front but I like both cars. Use the flash for 21.5 class and the 101 for the more open classes.

Thanks, in that case, I'll stick to my Flash (and wgp).
