Oop's rookie mistake, I didn't read all pages and I didn't order the V2 shocks, so looks like ill run the V1 until I need to order something more. But did order 2spring sets and the alloy caster mount and enough spares at least to get me started.
I have my Yokomo YRF very dialed at the moment on most tracks, but just was looking to try something a little different, and the new X-ray isn't that revolutionary so I figured ill try this
Ill head to Walters this weekend to pick up the SpeedPassion Carbon steering arms and axle (another bonus is parts are a short drive away)
Will be interesting to see how this goes on our bumpy mostly low grip track.
Awesome and welcome to the Street Jam F1 family
Walter has the alloy steering bridge as well...well they did a few weeks ago when i ordered it and really tightens up the steering.
Not sure I would recommend the carbon arms for asphalt as will take away some grip.
The v2 shocks are nice as the std shocks screw internal top cap like the side shock on the 104 v2 which always pulled out when i had one and v2 looks a lot more secure as more std looking.
yeah be interesting how it goes as sounds like your track similar to ours.
You must keep us posted as to how it compares to the Yoko.
