I went from 1.5 to 1 on camber this weekend at the Hudy and mellowed out the rolling on my X1 18. Also, i seem to roll more if i add caster. The rest is spot on, in my opinion.

Default Thanks

Thanks for the comments. What about going to a lighter, or heavier tube lube for the side tubes.

Lighter frees up the car quicker steering. Heavier tightens the car up. On black carpet I usually am at 15k in the tubes and 30k on the kingpins

Rob, any chance you can post a picture of the jig?

On a Roche F1 EVO is it normal that when using the CRC tires that the rear width is 5mm narrower than if I use the Volante tires? What width is a good starting point for CRC tires in the front and rear?

Are you guys using diff grease or thrust bearing grease on the diffs? I cant afford the gear diff so Im stuck with good old fashioned ball diff.

What surface are you running on?

This is a very good tutorial on building diffs.
Mark Payne's 1/12th Scale RC Notes

If you are still having problems diffing out in corners you can add these to the inside ring on the spur. Just be sure the diff ring has no grease where the pegs touch.

Im running a F103.5 (F104 Front arms and I converted the damper to use Exotek damper tubes with 10k grease) on black carpet but the traction isnt as good as it should be. Im going to use more diff balls and I have the Traxxas pins. I really need to go out and test and test but nearest track is 114 miles away!

No way. Its a marvel of engineering on my part. Took me almost 20 min to cut drill and grind my way to fitting the parts correctly! =)

Tried to look a bit in here not maybe the best but I didn't really find an answer
Does anyone know if the protoform f15 fits the tamiya f104 and if so are any mods needed to fit it

it's a tight fit, but it will work. just watch your wire routing.
