It shouldn't, it should flex with the chassis, not cause any resistance to it. I have run the epic1Designs Viper chassis armor on my R10, worked really well outdoors. Good thing about the e1D chassis armor, it has a special stick design, you can peel it all the way off, work on the car, put it back on with no issue. I was actually taking my off between every heat trying different suspension mounts and spacers, never an issue sticking back.

no influence for flex chassis, is very thin.

Excited to join the fray! I just ordered a R10 2015 as my first high-end TC!

The version I got from Viper RC comes with the belt tensioner and D.J. CVDs. What are any crucial parts to have on hand? I don't want to go overboard this month, so if there are any that are guaranteed to break in the hands of a less experienced racer, let me know.

It will be raced on a soda-treated parking lot track. Does anyone have a recommended setup sheet or notes they can provide? I know these rougher conditions will differ from some of the asphalt setups commonly posted.

We alternate between two track locations and layouts each week, and ride heights are usually between 5mm and 6.5mm. Otherwise, the surface is relatively smooth and we have high temperatures most of the year. Spec tires are between X-patterns and Sweep 40s depending on USGT or 17.5 blinky.

Should I run zero rebound? I have some HPI silver springs I was going to use on my other cars, but am open to recommendations and any info on setting it up for a good first outing on a parking lot surface.

Thanks, and look forward to sharing my results. I figured the durability and smooth handling people talk about on here are good enough reasons to choose it over some of its competitors.

Im having issues with posting my setups on here but I race on a few parking lot tracks in my area. Stock springs are fine. Try kit setup and ride height no less than 5 1/5 on parking lot.

I ran mod today and the car was amazing. I final had dialed in the esc enough to get my car planted. I cant wait to do that again. Next few races though are going to be 12th scale carpet racing for me. Sorry that's my true passion. but will get back out and start practicing 13.5 for reedy in a month or so.

Thanks for the tips! I sent you a PM about getting the setups sheets online (if I can help.)

I picked up the ATS edition on Black Friday and finally got it built and onto the track this past weekend. The track is a large, fast, and flowing permanent asphalt facility. The car drove awesome with the box set-up on it for 17.5. I did order the 2.5 rear block to see if I can free it up just a tad but overall, I was VERY pleased with the car.

The thread has been dead lately...

Seems F1 is picking up in popularity all over.
With the prominent presence of ARC in the ETS, will they be coming out with an F1 kit soon? The new xray one is out, but looking at other options.

A lot like the best of the Xray line, aren't they, Graham?
Have you tried the active rear end in VTA?

yes they are, imho they are better but that's just me

no i havn't tried it in any class, to be honest on our grip level tracks im not a big fan, seen it used on xrays & serpents by a few ppl on a few different tracks but they didn't go any quicker than with a standard rear end
