Its been looked at but dont know the level of interest in the material and inserts.
My experience is the Icon has such a wide range of caster available.
It would be a big chunk of inventory doing all 3 different camber tops and probably just 3 caster inserts. (4-6-12*)

Only if Kraze Builds make a-arms and a upper deck then Iíll give it another try
I know they are drawn Im just not sure if theyll do them yet.
I havent seen much talk about it being a problem.
Theyve done Xray ones due to their flex but the Icons felt much stiffer then those on my car.

Default Rear Ride Height

How do I set the rear ride height of the Icon F1? I tightened this nut down a bit but I donít think thatís right. Some threads talk about spacers, which I can find them for the front but does it equally effect the rear as well? Lost on setup here but love driving this!!

You are supposed to use that nut to set the angle of the pod. Rear ride height is adjusted using the eccentric axle bearing holders. Basically there are several pairs of the part the rear axle bearings press into. Each pair has the bearing in a different place, which changes the ride height.

Does anyone know if the WRC F04 or F05 body fits the Icon at all? Looking for a new body for next year as I am so not happy with the one that I have on it currently. Or is there any good recommendations for black CRC high grip carpet?

How do you mount the montech 22 front wing on these cars?

It mounts the same as the older Montech wing with 2 screws. The holes are on the same place but the plastic is less thick so if you use the U8174 Wing thread insert kit you need to add some spacers. I used 2mm spacers on mine:

With the R1 start with a 88 spur and 27 to 30 pinion. Thats what I run on mine there depending on track bite and motor temp. Usually starts out a little loose early in the day then the bite comes up by main time.
