Sure,
it was the RTR wheel/tire which you know doesn't have a very good grip. It was my second lap on the track and the car slided on a curve to the wooden wall that was covering the pit area; I couldn't correct it so the car hit sideways the wall, primarily the front tire and bang!
After switching to V-slicks I had no issues keeping the car on control. BTW, the tape I forgot to put into the wheel to hold the insert hasn't caused any issues; it must be because of the duck tape I put inside the tire that prevents them from ballooning and the insert is not able to move.

The kyosho IGT wheels SUCK. Period. You clip a pipe, thats it. Game over that wheel is toast and the tire will shred. I read somewhere that the v-slicks will fit the buggy wheels. I'm gonna see if they will next time I go to the hobby shop.

Try the Kyosho IGH005bk 10 spoke wheel. These are much tougher than the 5 spoke and look good too. I have them in stock.

Here's a short 2 minute video of my F430 my friend took last week one evening after I changed the front bearing. It's a bit rich the first lap but then gets going. Drive ends after the fuel runs out. Gearing 15/18, 16% nitro.

Yeah, the track is pretty cool.

I put 19T second gear today, noticeably faster on second than on the video.

But a guy with a 14/17 geared Aston was even faster, he could utilize the technical parts of the track better than me with it's shorter gearing. I need some more training and I think my engine wasn't perfectly tuned yet for the day.

We have a few OFNAs but haven't seen tehm on track yet. We race only with Kyosho's.

You could try the IGT optional black carbon clutch, it lets the engine spool up a little more before it grabs. Check the optional parts list in the back of your book.

I've heard some complaints that rear (main) bearing of the GXR28 wouldn't last long. Has this been an issue for you? How have you solved it? Do you know if there are any ceramic bearings around?
