We tried Ride R1s and Pit Shimizu 573 front 575 rears, we can't get the cars to stop spinning out just accelerating! lol We race with 4wd Sedan's and Minis, they use Sorex 28s, and they have grip galore, but the 8 F1 guys are practically on ice...

I use my F104v2 with a full length battery, and a carbon rear axel. Everything is as soft as can be in the rear, but i'm box stock in setup except for ride height, and no binding of my 21.5 motor wires. I'm planning on putting back the metal axel, and using a shorty lipo positioned more forward.

I've checked my tweak, the car is true. What do you guys suggest? What info would you guys need to help us?
Are all 8 of you running the same chassis and struggling?

I'd say if you are sure you've done all you can to get the rear stuck, soft center and side springs, light oil center (20w for me) and side damper (I like 2000), perfect diff build/parts/setting, rear ride height lower than front, weighted rear (for me) and best tire sauce available (rear only at first) THEN take away steering.
Many get the car to stick pretty well then complain of not enough steering and add camber/caster, change to hot rod ride height (low front end), soft front springs etc. then complain of no rear grip.
Just sayin. Sometimes ya just gotta say WTF.

Default Electric appliance for TRF-101

Since I used to play nitro touring before and this is the very first electric car I ever had, and I bought the electric parts below from our LHS:

Motor : 17.5T with sensor (Silverback)
ESC : Hobbywing Xtreme Stock (Claimed competible to Xerun-120A ESC programme)
Servo : Savox 1252 mg (newer than 1251 but little cheaper)
Tires : GQ F1 foam tires

Please comment on the above and advise on the pinion and Lipo, I also bought a Silverback 4800 mah lipo for test, I may have to buy more Lipos to run.

I don't have a F104 but have a lot of experience in F1 and RC On Road, and would personally think the ackermann setting is quite important, but seems to get forgotten often. If your links are too far forward (at the servo end) your front tyres will heat up really fast and make the car hard to drive and of course the reverse is true if your links are too far back at the servo.

That's pretty cool. I wonder if anyone ever actually tried this and if it's UF1 legal.

I had to admit, we were saying WTF a lot lol Some guys have the F104, some F104X1 and i have the F104v2.
I haven't changed the oil for the shocks yet, they're the box oil, and i'm going to install a larger TRF damper for the car, with the stock shock's ball mount. The rear is at 3.5mm and my front at 4mm.

As for the Diff, at the end of the day, we were all running loose diffs that were on the verge of slipping.

I used to race F1s on carpet with foam tires, and they had traction galore, this is the other end of the spectrum now, completely different driving style...

You may want to try Race and Drift Japan (http://www.rc-race-and-drift-japan.com) or Banzai Hobby (http://www.banzaihobby.com). Both had the lower arm in stock.

Ordered from both and their service is A1.
