The F104 is now running much better with curves. The weight advantage is fantastic.

I invite the FePO's with 10A / 4C. The cells are then fully in 7 minutes! The cells are intrinsically safe. So I invite them in the car.

Since driving stress is on ....

Have fun

Default A123 LiFePo

Hi,
I buy my FePO'S here: ..w.modellbau-franke.de/A123-LiFePo

Olli only sells original A123 cells. The packs are made up of high-current capability. In Germany there was even "worse"cells with green Mattel. Look in the forums of the German race boat driver ...

Load diagrams can be found here: ..w.elektromodellflug.de/akku-test/26650

Have a nice greeting from the Rhineland to Munich
Olaf

Springs too hard yes, maybe the t-plate also. Probably need to raise the ride height as well.

4-5mm, is the car scraping all over?

If you don't run TCS, remove the tension adjusting screw from the T bar completely. You can then use a foam ring, such as from a TC5 shock rebuild or other similar neoprene foam, to keep the ride height and provide support. This works!!

And if these don't work then it's like what AB said- track is just too bumpy

Do you run rubber tyre? Did you drill out air holes in the wheel. You might be bouncing because of those huge air filled tyre's. Just a thought.
