Don't think so... The X Shock is significantly larger than the CRC

To adjust droop in the rear of an F1 is the same as a 12th scale. The length of the centre shock will determine the amount of pod droop. To get less pod droop you might need to cut 1-2mm off the ball cup on the shock.to get more you just lengthen the shock.
I think mine at the moment is at 1.5mm of pod drop. The front I think depends on the spacers that are on the front king pin.

hy boy´s
in the rear droop ca.1,5mm - moore rear droop makes the car more turn in - but little onpower steering
in the rear - minimal droop make the care easy turn in - and more onpower steering

front droop ca.1mm - moore droop make the car less onpower steering - more weight in the rear...

i drive the kingpins in the front - and there are the shims under the steering arm for the droop - more shims make less droop - less shims make more droop

i can not say - witch droop by low gripp - and witch droop by much gripp - you must take the balance of the car this is very important

hope this helps

Hi Everyone,

I think its time for some more YRF knowledge sharing

Down here in Australia we are allowed to use both narrow and wide F1 cars,
So for the last 7 months i had been running my YRF in wide mode with F103 tyres with ok results, but recently i changed the car to narrow setup to use F104 tyres and the car is so much quicker and still very stable on rubber tyres,

Last week's first run on a medium/high grip hot track the car was unstoppable, and was only 1 sec from lapping the field in the final..

It was the first time i have driven an F1 where you had total confidence when you mashed the throttle you knew it wasn’t going to be a handful coming out of the corner yet had so much steering you were not just pushing all over the place.

So the tyres to use

Morning with a coolish track
Pit PS-0573 medium fronts,
Pit PS-0572 hard rears

Afternoon hot track setup
Pit PS-0573 medium fronts
Ride R1 Rears

I will post a full setup tonight when i can scan it,

I ran the Pit 572's on a hot track for curiosity but they went off after a few minutes, it was still drivable but you had to really square the car up before accelerating.

Thanks to Dan (Hugh Jazz) who just happened to save the day with some 12th scale ride height adapters (R12-20H) these are a must with Pit tyres on the rear to get some decent ride height as they are slightly smaller diameter the the Ride's

I will report back after our first round of our 2014 F1 series this weekend.

Beth.
