All independent suspensions, front & rear, are legal in UF1

No. The FGX has rear dog bones and is legal.

Question about battery placement. With the latest crop of chassis coming out with the transverse battery layout, is anyone still mounting the battery forward, like right behind the servo?

I'm in the process of setting up a different chassis aside from my F1R3, and was wondering what kind of handling I should expect with the battery up front? The chassis is a F104V2 btw.

I know this is an international forum, but anyone else from the USA thinking about making and racing this body? I am.

I had mine setup with the battery in the front, it would often diff out on hard turns. I moved the battery as far rear ward, and it was better, but then i would spin out under braking! I couldn't get my F104v2 balanced just right.

I'll get working on a decal sheet for it, though there isn't too much in terms of sponsors on the livery haha.
Like the colour scheme though, the grey and red.

BP Shadow, what body will your Haas decals be designed for? I'd like to go ahead and get one ordered.

That's exactly what I race, and yesterday I was on the new CRC carpet. I'm no expert, Wheelz might be able to help more. But what I did was go to a stiffer center spring, go up on the center shock oil, and that helped. I'm running the stiffest front spring (silver) with the shock in the upper hole in the front tower. I'm running the short wheelbase too.

575 rears, 571 fronts. Full sauce, CA on the sidewalls.

Hope this helps.

Mark

Hi guys,
What tire warmer cups work best on F1 tires?
The touring cups seem to be the wrong size, given the popularity of F1 nowadays I dont understand I cant find any F1 specific tire warmers.
Or I could have it all wrong and they're not needed off course
