So would you recommend the wide or narrow front for carpet racing? (rubber tires)

First time to leave any comment on this kit since I didn't even bother to check.
however after I saw pictures from the website it got my attention. Specially the adjustibility on the front end.

You should check with the rules at you're club. Usually rubber tires run a specific track width of XXX mm. I would look at using the narrow version and the kingpin upgrade. The kingpin upgrade is meant for rubber tires.

Silly question. Will the front wing work on any other chassis?

Do the new kits come with the standard side to side damper or the new dual side to side damper? I can't see a dual side damper part number on the yokomo website.

I'd start with narrow as it gives more steering, but if you find you have too much, or the car is too nervous, change to the wide front

I currently run a F201 wrung on my car indoors as it gives more grip,

There are others which for as well, including the F104 and I think the 3racing. Beth may be able to help a bit more

Does anyone know of a tuning guide for this car? (or even F1 cars in general)

yep what he said
the older Tamiya wings don't fit without some hacking. I always used the 3racing or kit one.

No wings on my car at the moment, will make its Lemans debut this Friday

No problem Edward just want to know how to make adjustments. I will be running a box stock car on Fri and if it doesnt run quite how I want I need to know what to do.

How is it handling? What's it like when taking a corner? Does it oversteer? Understeer? How did you want it to handle?

Tell me everything you've done to the car and what the current setup it has. I'll speak with the actual designer of the car and get some input from him on what to do.

Cool?
