I am just finishing mine, I hope that tonight will be able to do rear axle plus wings and maybe start to cut the body.

has anyone experienced issues with the o ring not keeping the plastic bits of the arms in place?

Best regards
Javier

I am new to Yokomo F1, may I know if F104 wheels fit? Any modifications needed to fit?

I wanted to ask, as I am just getting back into F1, having raced last in the 90's Euro-Cup and Keil series. Who in the US carries the new chassis YR10F?

Default New build

Been slacking on getting this finished, but I had some free time this week to get the electronics layout and wiring done the way I wanted. Came out looking pretty clean I think, and actually balanced out well when the motor was installed (had to use a 17.5 for test purposes, don't have a 21.5 yet). Now all that's left is figuring out what body to use. I purchased a '14 PF body, but it didn't fit the way Id like it to, too high in the rear. Well, hope to have it done within a week or two, once I find a body here in the states I like. Enjoy!

Looks nice!!!

When you're balancing the chassis the rear pod should not be included. Should only be the main chassis only.

After some racing on carpet and tarmac I am starting to feel really happy with car.

I have changed the steering crank, I am using the ones for the 12th car, R12-26CL the + 1.75 mm version. It makes steering more smoother and a bit more direct as it has a lot less ackerman.

The body I am using is the Montech F13.

The One They Call Dirty, you can remove the fan on the speedo, with blinky and a 21.5T motor speed will never get anything near hot.

Cheers
Javier

Does the f13 sit flush with the bottom of the chassis? And I plan on taking the fan off, it's a brand new esc, haven't gotten that far yet lol.

What other side springs fit the YR-10F? I've used the Associated 1/12 gold side springs but they are not stiff enough to get my car more responsive.

I am using the yokomo ones.
Ccooper or gold ones are great for outdoor racing. For indoor purple or black are good.

Cheers

Just run shims, no springs or dampers, that's the only way to be stiffer than you have it

Hah, those gold springs are still too soft. Gotta take out the holders tonight to see if I can fit wider X1 springs.

Help needed. I can't seem to get the camber on the car the same lt to rt. I went thru
the manual several times and using the double arrows pointing inward I get 2.5deg on the right and 1deg on the left. I measured it with my gauges and a camber block against the tire, is the same. Any ideas? Anybody experience this?

Did you check that the inserts for the upper and lower arms are all same width setting?
