I was going to suggest stiffer side springs. You can also move the wing forward and down.

What motors are a good choice for F1? I've been using LRP X20, but they seem very torquey, leading to wheelspin off corners. Are there motors which are milder in their delivery at lower rpm?
I have played with timing, ESC settings and radio settings, some of which helped a little.

The popular motor at my local track for F1 has been the Motiv M-Code. While its expensive, its power curve is perfect for F1, and is top quality and hand built. No complaints from amy of the racers at my local track, and most everyone who runs F1 has this motor.

Top 2 are the Motiv and the Team Scream motors.

That depends on the type of track you run at. Indoor/outdoor? Small/large? 21/.5/25.5?

The X20 are excellent motors. What turns you use? If you have too much torque at the wheels, just put a larger pinion. With 21,5 X20 we run 2,1 FDR on a large track with 37,5 timing insert.I have tried 1,9 FDR also but it gets too lazy. You would need smaller spur as the stock one allows min FDR of about 2,4.

We run 21.5 blinky. A mate loaned me a Tekin Gen 2, and it was easier to drive than the LRP. Hence the question, I am basically looking for a motor which is lower in torque so I should get better drive off corners with less wheelspin. That's the theory anyway...

Get a smaller rotor.

I think you can set the X20 to have the same feel like the Tekin by elaborating with the gear ratios and timing. Also it may be your rear tires are not on par with your friend's. You can also try to widen the rear track a bit.

add timing, run a smaller spur

^^ Try this first. Good "cheap" advice.

Drop ~5 teeth (ie, if your running an 86, go to 81. 81, go to 76 etc).
Timing, go up in ~5* increments, till you get the desired feel.

I had to do this when I changed from a MuchMore Fleta ZX motor to a Tekin Gen3 on my 1/12 scale. After changing the gearing a little and not running the same exact timing I was running on the MM, the Tekin is actually a little better. Should've messed with the MM motor a bit - hindsight, it could have probably been faster.

I saw those bodies. They look cool.

curious to know how people are saucing their front tires. Just the inside? full tire? short soak?

really depends on how much steering you need and the surface you are running on.
