Got TRF103 recently...it looks great and very stable. Still playing around the settings, feels a bit understeer on asphalt. I am using link setup...see if change softer front spring will help.

When pressing the metal front suspension balls into the plastic carriers, note that the upper balls and lower balls are different AND directional!
Be sure that the o-rings that hold the plastic front suspension ball carriers into the carbon fiber arms are well-seated. Have had one come loose at an inopportune time.
