What I want to confirm is the YRF 001 compatibility with ETS spec wings
Anyway if shipments arrived I may do the check myself over weekend with my friends ETS wings.
Sorry, didn't realize you were talking about the old car, since most people lately were only talking about the new one here.

You can use R12 ride height adapters - they come in set and offer way more choices: look for part YOKR12-20H.

I have those already(complete set came with my r12c3.1), they go the wrong direction, the largest offset is the 2mm i need like a 2.5... could put a shim between the motor pods and bottom pod but that still keeps all the weight up high doesn't make sense...

Ideally, you don't want to run your car down to 3.0 mm. You wan't to have a decent amount of ride height of say 4~5 mm front and rear. Too low will cause the chassis to scrub the carpet and cause the car to handle poorly. I run my F1 rubber height at 4.5 mm front and 5 mm rear.

A higher ride height will allow the car roll more and give more weight transfer to the tires.

Skim over various F1 setups on Petit RC and you'll see most, if not all guys are running 4 or 5 mm ride height.

Could you recommend some good kingpin setup (top/down spacers) for use with Ride XR wheels? I got second handed YRF with 2mm on both top and bottom - any hints?

Additionally what springs could I use as replacement for original ones for kingpin - any recommendations? GOt 2 crashes with some loses and used whatever at hand but now would like to have it more optimal, without buying whole kingpin conversion.

At the end of January I should have pods that when the zero block is installed the ride hight is 4mm with pit tires. Keep an eye on our Facebook page options-rc.com.

Also have a couple kits leftover. PM for deep discount details.

BTW if you use Ride's wheels the new XRs are smaller diameter comparing to R1 - so maybe the way to reach lower ride height.

Recently picked up this car used with no wheels and tires, Tamiya body and wing set installed. Wondering where to start setup wise for rubber tire and new CRC carpet. I ordered some tires from Sweep, soft fronts, medium rears and also soft rears as a starting point. any help would be appreciated.

Well, still learning but seems old YRF is becoming bit outdated with totally new model, reading through this thread and looking at setups on http://site.petitrc.com/reglages/yok...okomoYRF1.html is the best way to start.
First things:
1. How much do you want to invest into it? Friction damper is really nice thing. Crank setup for steering seems to be recommended but is pretty expensive and not available on most shops.
2. Layout of electronics: ESC, RX and battery. If you keep the standard servo position and have shorty battery you have several options:
a) battery behind servo and ESC & RX under brace
b) battery all way back and ESC & RX in front
c) battery in the middle and splitting ESC & RX in front / back
Alternatively you can use "classic" placement of RX & ESC on "shelves" but for me this leaves them too exposed in case of serious crashes, and I prefer to have weight as close to middle line as possible.
3. Once you choose and install that and wheels proceed to set ride height to ~5mm.
4. Toe out 1,5-2 degrees, camber similar, caster max (4 shims to the front), and you have good starting setup.
