TQRC carries SP1 parts now, but you can also order some from SP directly. What are you looking for?

was interested in the new aluminum optional parts such as caster block, and parts such as the front arm set, but the first did not sell, and the second is sold out

Solara said a page or two back that the parts should be available mid October when SP releases the LM-1 car.

Default motor pod

any of you have tested if a Tamiya F104 v2 pro or F104 motor pod fit to a SP-1?
I see this part as very weak and yesterday by a hit it on track it has been deformed, also the rear bearings were damaged. I would like to buy a replace motor pod that could be more robust to use, even though I have to buy a complete rear axle, wheel adaptors and diff. tks

Well, I'm happy to say that on Saturday I took 5th place (out of 12 cars) in the A-Main of our F1 class. This is my first F1 car (my first pan car ever), running the kit setup with no modifications. The car handled great (for my level of driving), smooth as butter!

One thing I wanted to mention... one of the experts at my track (hey Korey) gave me the Pro Tip of the week: put a set screw on the inside of your axle carrier to lock the king pin in place. My wheels had a lot of play and using the set screw eliminated about 80% of it! Much, much more precise on the carpet now.

Thanks SP

Both left and right aluminum motor mount were deformed by little hit..? To be honest...my 6 months old SP1 has been tumbling 100 times on and off the track and the rear motor mount and the axle still in straight....

I really don't think the TAMIYA motor mount are any stronger...I have a 3 years old 104 and yes it is still there with the same amount of hit and run incident.

I know the Tamiya motor mount does not work with the SP1 rear pod...

Thanks for that must of missed it.
I have had my SP-1 since april and have made a few mistakes when i built it but have since fixed the mistakes i have made. i find the car very good. have changed the side springs using serpent 12th scale ones which fit quite well. Have had alittle bad luck of late with bending the rear axle about 35 degrees afteri i hit something inmoveable plus i broke front arms top and bottom both sides. Must say it was a very hard hit boncing from one side of the track to the other. First time i have had to replace any parts since i have owned it. Also have found if you put some shoo goo on top of the steering knuckle to stop it braking

Cheers
Bones

If you are using Pardus tires I made some changes to the setup posted here earlier...
Shock 58.5mm
Losi 40 wt
Tamiya hard. Gray spring ..probably around 20-22lb
Crc front spring .50mm must add 1mm spacer as they are shorter
13mm king pin length measured from steering arm to tip of kingpin
Ride ht 5.5 ft - 4mm middle 4.5 rear
Make sure to glue side walls inside and outside on front up to tread
Rears may need glue as traction comes up
Full dope rear 3/4 front but keep an eye on the front as traction comes up

I ran the same setup I posted earlier at the IIC this past weekend and the car was working very well. It was pretty much the bone stock setup with all the ride height shims for the front put under the plate and the left side rear axle hub replaced with the Qteq hub and spaced out to the same width as the 190mm setting. With the Pardus tires and rims the car came out to about 188mm. I also added an o-ring on the ball stud for the shock to take out the slop. Other than those changes the car was completely stock...I didn't even CA the sidewalls of the tires. In a couple of the qualifiers the car was traction rolling a little bit but in the main it didn't at all. The car was really good in the main (c-main ) and I easily could have pushed another lap out of it but I was far enough ahead that I decided to just drive and have fun rather than push it and risk my lead. Not bad for a class I was running just to have fun in

Dammit, why don't I ever think of these tricks. Thanks man, I'm going to try this as well. And glad to hear that close-to-stock setup is working for you too
