Nice work! Time to persuade the F1 guys at your track to make an installation lap before the race start

Ed,

Tomorrow I'll be putting a few packs though my TRF to try and get it up to t-bar pace, take a look at mt 12deg caster setup.

Coming down to TZII?
Will you have enough steering response with 12 caster? What is stock caster for f104 front?

My personal best was 14.5sec with the v2.
I still have to figure out my GP.

can I ask what kingpins you used with the exotek front end on the trf? and did you attached e clips both top and bottom.

i'm trying to solve the balls popping out on the trf with the standard front set-up. I'm going to try mounting the kingpins upside down to what the manual states and see if that helps.

They are std f104 kingpins. Although the trf front end seems to work ok, I've been disappointed in its lack of adjustable or even workable uptravel with med or hard springs.

Ed,

I had though so but when I tried it on the asphalt it didnt loose the turn in or response I had expected and did increase corner speed and stability. If i remember correctly the stock caster was like 6 or 7 deg. and the trf was 1deg more. tomorrow will tell if that holds true on the carpet. Last year I had my v2 working well there and although I never got the gp to turn a faster peak lap it was consistently 2-3s faster over a 6min run and far better in heavy traffic.

thanks for that. I wonder if you would get a chance to post a picture of it from eye level so that I can get an idea as to your spring placement etc.

its below the arm, the entire front end setup is exactly the same as a regular 104.

good stuff. i'll give my amendment to the standard trf front end a run next week to see if may changes help, but will be sure to give the exotek a run as well.
