New servo mounts if you want to run the IFS set in your F104!

As for the Rides tearing - I had this happen as well. I would end up re-glueing the tears after virtually every run. It was a pain but it did the trick.
Thanks for the info guys, I'll try to find the AKA glue here in Europe but a quick search didnt give a lot.
And idd, I guess I'll be glueing the ride's untill they break off the rim
Do Pits have the same problem?? Any idea on how many runs they usually survive?

The outer side of Pits glue to the wheel in a different way. There is a flap of rubber that goes over a wheel designed for foam, which gives a much larger contact patch for super glue to stick rubber tyre to wheel. It also removes the thin bead between rubber and wheel.

As a result they do not tear under load. I'd occasionally had to re-glue small sections after a lot of runs, but that is rare.

Rides are pre-glued and the rubber tyre goes into a groove in the wheel. So like most Touring Car rubber tyres. This means the outside bead can tear, and this is where the re-gluing is needed.

If you're interested in some UK based options for a Super Glue with a high rubber contact then let me know, and I can dig out details later.

Hope that helps,
Mark

Default Battery Position

I am curious. Does anyone have any first hand experience with battery position? Most F1 cars you can move the battery from rear mounted to front mounted. Does anyway know what the difference would be? I read something on the Xray sight with there 12th scale saying moving the battery back (transversely mounted) it would ADD steering. I run the battery forward and the car seems to have plenty of steering but I am always looking to make it better. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Its all about weight distribution. A higher forward weight bias on the main chassis plate will yield better onpower steering with greater front end stability over bumps. As the weight moves to the rear you will increase on/off power weight transfer increasing off power turn in and forward bite. To high of a rear bias will often cause the car to scrub excessively on corner entry through apex and result in off power traction roll problems. Too high of a forward bias will struggle to get power down & push more on corner entry in lower grip conditions and diff out or traction roll on corner exit in higher grip conditions. spreading the weight further across the chassis like you would have with a transverse mounted batters will make the car roll easier off center and deeper but change direction slower with a reduction in longer turn corner speed.

If you are mounting your esc right behind or in front of your batter think of it as 1 solid block of weight, their g/cm will be similar.

I think some of the drivers are mixed up a bit in those pictures. Roberts car is listed as Brian Wynn's and Kevin Coles as Jack Kloeber. Not sure if any others.

Nick Canelo's car is listed as Robert Bakoczy.
BTW, Nick was driving an F1R2 with the IFS.

I'm pretty sure that Bryan "Dumper" Wynn's car is the one listed for Nick Canelos.

Oops. I'm sorry about the mix up. I have corrected the labels on the pics. Here is the correct version. You can see larger pics in the Photobucket Album.



Here's the A-Main results.

Looks like they're the stock wings from the F104 pro on the stock X1 body.
