Any chance getting Tamiya USA to replace the shaft/housing? Or am I out of luck and need to buy a whole new assembly?

Side note, also checked Tamiya USA site again, and it does say camber adjustment 1.5/2.5, but that's just bogus. With the mark on the inside I'm right at 1.5. Outside is barely a 1/2 degree, which was actually wearing the outside of the tire and leaving the inside still shiny after several runs.
I noticed a wobble in my diff housing when I spin it. I am going to check the bearings and how they are seated and the cone washers. Was yours caused by the axle or the piece where the wheel is attached.

I also had a graphite pod plate that only had three of the four holes countersunk.

The housing that is pinned to the driveshaft is bent. It's definitely not straight.

Hi guys,

Can I use F104 Ver2 Lower deck and rear pod as a replacement for TRF101? Since there is no parts yet for them except those titanium screws.

What's the part number for the carbon driveshaft assembly? I no longer think it's the same as the RM01X car.

According to the manual it says #42252, and the RM01X shaft is #54427

Can anyone confirm? Will the RM01X shaft work as a replacement?

Does anyone have a good base setup for Rubber Tire on Carpet? I am hoping to run at IIC this fall, so I will most likely be running Pardus tires up until then.

I ran my 101 today. The car was great out there on foams and rubber. The only problem I am having is that it is real darty. What can I do to tame this down? I hear that more caster would fix it. Can we add caster to this 101? I was looking at it. It really doesn't look like we can.

if you built it as per manual, then you will have had the front axles in-line. To help tame down the front I moved the axle to the offset position and it helped a lot.

I do race on a flowing track where this helps. I understand the front hole position is better for tight technical tracks.

maybe even play a little with radio settings to help calm it down a bit.

I did this. (S/R is turned down)

Now for the front of the car the only thing I did was put shims and spacers in there so I could have the ride hight at like 5mm.

What do you mean by this? Could you show me a picture of your f-1?

if you go to the rear of your manual, you'll find it will make reference to the front axle position on page 17.

sorry, I'm about to board a plane so can't load a picture, but the manual covers what can be done which may help.
