If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

So when are you coming out then? It'll be good to have another F1 out and running!!!

If you can't resist the urge, I've got a spare one. All it needs is a spur, diff balls and plates and the thrust assembly... (tempting?)

You can adjust the front by trimming the front hubs like this

Just replace whatever you trim off with a spacer. I did this to use 1/12th tires.

Is that track asphalt or carpet? I wish we had an indoor track like that around here. It looks nice.

vyger, everyone had fun, all were winners

our focus is more to enjoy each others company, relax, eat, and have some fun with little toys cars. but we (mostly above 30 years old) were beat by a teenager. youth over experience

Yes that is the mod I was going to show you.. well tell you about because I dont have pictures yet.

EVERYONE at our carpet track does this mod, otherwise you are not competitive.
You run about 5mm ride height front and 6-7 at the rear.. once you have the balance set.. it seems to wear even front/back and all you have to do is adjust the ride hight when it gets down.
