AW grease is inconsistent for diffs. It does weird stuff as it gets hot. Try the pink VG Tamiya grease, which is a diff grease, and is even thicker than AW.

Check the front and rear droop. Droop seems to be a really important setting on F1s

How are your front tyres wearing? With 2.5 Camber I would expect the contact patch to be well over on the inside edge. Try 1.0 Camber, if you havenít already.

In my 25.5 car I used the medium soft fronts at Cal Sunday. Plenty of steering, very easy to drive through all the corners I would just try the MS fronts as the M's are pretty pushy.

Tires are so weird
If I run tamiya fronts my car will push into a wall
If I run Medium Volante it will loop out because those tires have mega mega steering, even more than MS

I can't argue against that. For asphalt it just comes down to so many factors- track temps, track surface (slurry/porous asphalt/?), track prep/treatment. Always always best to use what the fast guys at that track are using. If I ever visit your track you know I'll have to use your tires. 5-6 different tracks I've visited and they all require different tires so now I ask what tires are best when I go to new tracks. A lot like off road 2wd buggy!

But If you run the same track over and over then you really never have to deviate from the 'best' tires.

Without searching through this thread. Has there been any discussion on roll center? Front or rear.

I think they are the same as the Gravity Tires, which I think are Ride rubber, not sure on that though. If they are the same as the Gravity, they do work on both well.
