I typically would switch to 575 rears, but would like to get this setup working first.

Offpower screams to me to check your drag brake or you have too much rear pod down travel which will catastrophically transfer all the weight forward going into corners. Try shortening your center shock some if you are sure your drag brake isn't too high.

I've put in the kit shock oil. I had losi 32.5 in it and shortened the shaft. I had to much rear droop and just a little too much damping. I'll find out tomorrow. Thanks!

I can strongly recommend taking up Mario and Brian up on their offer of help.

Come find me and say hi as well, as I'll be racing my WTF-1 as well. Just at the airport now to fly to the 'Birds from the UK.

Both "Dumper's Speed Shop" and "Mario's Passion for F1" should get you rolling pretty well.

Good luck at the Birds.

Hi, i've recently bought a used wtf-1. This is my first f1 after an old tamiya f103. I'm still trying to sort it out.
Just a quick question: how do i set front ride height? At the moment i'm at 6mm, i would like to go down to 4mm.

There are 2 plastic shims that come with it that are used under the front mount to lower the chassis height.

Hi, thank you for your reply. Do you mean those 2 black "hexagon"-like shims? I tried to put one under the front carbon arm, but then i could not slide the front wing in. I also tried to put one between the chassis and the suspension block, but had the same result...

I did the same and put the shim between the carbon arms and the base suspension block. It works! Thanks!

Got my new CRC WTF1 Wednesday. Should be ready to go for next Friday. I had to order a servo so I ordered a Futaba s9650 same as what I run in my 12th scale and my WGT. Super excited to get this car on the track. One thing it sure is tight for electronics.

I may have one soon too, depending if my wife got my hints for birthday present.
