I don't think this kit was really targeted for us customers. I end up using top photon spacers for the rear, took away the runout.

Yeah sure. I will also list some alternatives.

Youll need:

plastic pieces...
tam51380 ( servo holder parts tree)
tam51381 ( f104 front a arm )

uprights, three different choices....
tam5325 ( these are the offset types)
tam54154 ( these come in the f104pro and f104 pro version2 )
tam54357 ( these are the hopup ones and are aluminum they also feature inline or trailing position) also expensive but worth it.

spring set...
tam50509

ball connectors...
tam50875 ( i cut mine down like 1.5 to 2mm and used my sp1's turnbuckles)

ball nuts...
tam53599 ( kit ball nuts are too small. )

option camber mount...
tam54202 ( gives you more options on camber degree, you can use the one that comes in the front a arm set but you wont have but 2 options of camber degree)

kingpins...
tam54160 ( hopup king pins)

suspension balls...
tam54161 ( hopup)

hardware...
tam19808240 ( 3.35mm screws counter sunk hex heads)
tam19804246 ( these shims go on the front steering axles)

eclips...
tam84177

I got some more work done on my SP-1 Canon/Porsche. Finished up the driver with a generic red/white paint scheme in keeping with the car's theme and added the tire branding logos. All that is left now is some wing decals. Those may take some time though so it will be off to the track for some testing tomorrow.

Well I finally got my SP-1 out on the track for some testing today. With the Pit Shimizu 574/572 tire combination I finally had a car on our track that can turn. Though it still has a bit of push so I was thinking maybe increasing the ackerman angle would help get a little more bite in steering. Which way do I shim the inner ball studs to increase ackerman? Do I add more shims or take the stock ones out?

Also as others have noted...I really hope Speed Passion is working on a better plastic. The stock plastic is just to soft and flexy. 1 fairly light tap pulled the steering knuckle right off of the pillow ball. This looks like I'll need a lot of spares so I just orderd 5 more from F1 Paint Lab.

My fellow sp1 owners. When ordering the replacement parts. Specifically, the front arm set. BE SURE TO ORDER TWO. When ordering one set. You will receive one upper and one lower.

Got the steering knuckle on mine replaced and back for another day of testing yesterday. I love driving this car! It is very smooth on our track with the 574/572 tire combination. I added another 1mm to the ackerman adjustment and got the car to turn in just a little better. Just enough to where I beat the F1 fast lap record by .25 Now I just need people to show up on race day for the class

The past weekend I have Rob King (owner of RC F1 Blog)to drive my early stage prototype car (with all the soft plastic and no so good parts on it...) and he is very impress about how the stock car work out as well. However, the SP1 does have some off power understeering even with the 571/572 combo. But Rob does setup the ABS on my radio and THAT....is the solution.

I would never thought having the car slow down "GOOD" enough will actually give my car to turn in much better, sharper and eariler (faster) when I have not setup the brake (or even active the ABS system) at all....

For those who want to turn the F1 better...give it a shot on the ABS setting, it really does make a night and day different. I am sure it does not simply apply to SP1 only...I think it will apply to any F1.
