Might be a dumb question but from a scale of buggy to TCs, how important is a setup station? Buggy itís nice to have but heard itís essential for touring cars
Is there any other essential pit items to have?

Default Servo savers

Just curious if you guys are running servo savers on your F1 cars seems like I bought a couple years and neither one of them have a servo saver on it. I would think with the front wheels as exposed as they are you would want some type of protection.

Xray servo saver is what I normally run. Ran my F1 with a direct horn once and it didn't take much to kill the gears in my $120 servo.

Sorry I kinda rushed my question but yes any F1 essential items. Some things i can think for buggy are spare arms, hubs, turnbuckles, etc. More just spare parts and a couple different sets of tires. Maybe even shock oil in case a different weight is needed.

Often kit specific. When you choose your kit, find the forum and check what is breaking and grab spares.
Pinions, spurs, diff balls and a few fluids should be able to get you up to speed at any track, assuming you're on the correct tire. I like to have a spare front and rear wing, just in case.
Enjoy!!!

Have any of you guys tried toe-in on your cars? If so, what did you find out?

I was at .5 toe in ea side, drove badly, Once I went to 1.5 toe out per side, amazing how drivable it was. I was somewhat surprised, I’m used to toe out for sedan, surprised how much it affected the F1

You're supposed to put it on the front.

I use this servo for my buggies and has been good to me. Would this work well in an f1? I would assume so.

Anyone have any idea how to address the slop in the front wheel where the king pin goes or do the new models do the same thing? This is a kf01 kyosho. https://youtube.com/shorts/HehBRmHdy...6qrjFaEMGhwSb4

That's not right ..... at minimum it looks like the lower arm bushing needs to be replaced. Newer cars will have a replaceable upper and lower metal bushing, and have very little slop.

Replace those KF014 may solve your issue, If it doesnt then maybe your knuckle needs to be replaced as well
