Great tip on the screws fat500! I had realized I had similar flutton screws from Avid (titanium). They seem to hold the upper plate more rigidly after I installed it.

Oh yeah, Stiebler has piloted the Icon 2 to be the 2022 F1 world champ. Too bad Ratheisky was not there to battle it out too but nice to see Schumacher get the title for a good car.

It wasn't technically an F1 championship though was it? I believe that's why Ratheisky didn't come, too much expense for no title. But a good drive to win it.

IFMAR specifically says in the rules that the supporting classes such as the Formula one class is NOT a world championship.

https://www.ifmar.org/wp-content/upl...%20Jul2022.pdf

1.0.2 (**) in the event low numbers are expected supporting classes E Formula one and/or FWD may be organized but NOT as a world championship.

I stand corrected!

At least X-ray stopped using "vice champion" in their marketing.

Seen the Icon 2 dip to $275 on Amain a few times. Combine that with a $30 off coupon (when your cart is $300), makes for a fantastic deal when other F1 cars are $350-400.

I picked one up when Amain had it for $290 (before coupon), wished I waited a little longer!

Ordered one on sale from Amain Monday and raced it today. Fast easy build and drives great with the kit setup.

Looking for a solution to accurately measure caster on the Icon2. Was looking at Exotek's caster Doodles but not sure if they will work on the Icon 2... has anyone tried them?
