What is the smalles gauge wire you guys are using for the ESC to motor wiring? Looking to see if its worth it to lose some weight. Thanks.

For the motor wires- extra thin jacket 16g wire from TQ wire. It tweaks the rear pod less than fatter wires.

Greetings fellow RC-F1 experts

I found the following part (the blue tube connecting the rear of the motormount box) in my Tamiya F1 box and dont know where it came from and if it is an original Tamiya part. Can anybody identify it and knows for which car it was build, is it Tamiya or another tuning part company

I heard a rumor recently that Pit Shimizu is out of business. When I wen to their website, it seems that it has expired. I am looking for 574 front tires (or is the 575 the front?), but am having trouble finding them. Can anyone offer any insight?

I was using 574 front 575 rear on black carpet last Sunday. Its aggressive and I could only sauce 1/3 front; otherwise it would traction roll. But I still like it better than using 571/572.

I think next time I will try with 12 degree caster and 1-1.5 camber.
