>No spacer under front ball stud on upper arm

I tried Pardus tires as well, but it's going to take more work than I had time for to get the car where it needs to be on Pardus. I have some ideas, but I need some more time at the track.
As soon as you have something for the Pardus let us know...going to need that for the IIC coming up soon where the hand out tires will be Pardus

I am running at a mid traction outdoor asphalt track. I found the kit spring really good. Had try xray t3 springs 2.6 to 3.0. It fits but donot like them as the rear end is too hard and really loose during corner exit....... (with foam tires and 17.5 with turbo)

The rear of the F1 is direct axle...so not much you can do at the back.

The front....all you need is a bare rim to mount on the front and use a camber guage to check camber. Caster is preset.....the only hard to check part is the front toe. But I think eye balling it will work.

I know there were 12th scale setup station....but I have yet to see a F1 specific one.

If anybody is interested, I have (1) still sealed, NIB kit. That I am not going to build. Got it for myself and have decided not to build an F1. I'll take $175 for it and ship it anywhere in the Continental US.

Solara,
I am very disappointed that the time has been pushed back further on the LeMans car.

Any tips or recommendations for rebuilding of the diff? Such as frequency, and what to replace in addition to rings and balls?
