Careful on those Schumacher premounts. The rear inserts are not glued and in very high traction conditions or with long sweepers, the inserts will bunch up and become unbalanced. They are not glued well either, I've lost a race because of them.

Sounds like a real Formula 1 Pirelli tire failure. I thought that scale realism was important to this class.

Quick report back.

I worked with the droop as suggested, reglued the rims where they started to seperate on the inside, reset the ride height, and the car came in great. Push is controllable now with front tire prep.

Thank you for all the help dialing in the rookie.

December release. As usual, don't expect a whole ton of changes. The biggest change will be a revision of the front suspension.

If anyone is interested we have a couple of Fenix gear diffs in stock at The Gate. These will fit either the X1 or CRC F1 cars. One of the guys used one last weekend at The Halloween Classic and put it in the A. Gerber tested one the other night and thought the car carried more corner speed. I plan on testing one this weekend with different lubes. If anyone is interested in picking one up shoot SG1 a pm.

I won F1 at The Gate yesterday using the Fenix gear diff in my X1. The track was the same as the HC last weekend. I had a faster hot lap and overall a faster time than last weekend. The car was easier to drive and carried more speed. The top three cars all used a gear diff with different weights of lube in each one. Just something to consider.

Hi Chuck
You make my day, thanks!
We're still learning a lot over the diff behaviour, and driver feedback is precious to us.
Heavy oils like 1 million, give a solid car, probably a touch too much on the safe side. On the other side, I'm testing teflon coatings. Car is a touch temperamental, but wicked fast.
500K seems to be a good all around for most of the drivers. Did you used the newest Titanium axle with the larger spur?
