I'm at -1.5 with the mark out.

Increasing camber should help prevent traction rolling. You have something else going on. Most likely too high front ride height.

You're right Alex, 3.5 is way too high.

Hi Guys,

Which Tamiya wheel should I use for the Shimzu 571/572/573?

I currently have the Tamiya F104 51398 (for rubbers) and the F104 51378 which i believe is for foams. Im guessing the grooved rim wheels are my best bet - Can someone help me out with some advice so I can get my wheels and tyres ordered?

Cheers!

That's pretty close to what I have mine set at. I'm just a hair over 3mm

I built the front per the kit and added 2mm shims all the way around. Remove the e-clip above the axle as well.

The 51398 rims were designed for foams, but the 571/572/573/574/575 rubbers were made to fit on these. The first time you do it is a bit strange, but they work surprisingly well.

Oh, it helps to take the sharp edge off the outside of the rim. This can reduce some of the tearing that can happen in the sidewall.

Phil.

Warning about the Exotek wheels, they're not nearly as durable as the Tamiya foam wheels. I do like the added stability though.

It should fit. I had one on my F1R, and currently on my Ver.II.

It may require some trimming, but you should be fine

In a real f1 car it pushes the rear end down without causing drag issues like a bigger rear wing. Should do the same here as well. Since the air under car has a small entry point, flat front bottom, and the rear is raised causing a bigger exit point, the air is less dense where the diffuser is causing low pressure and pushing the car down.
