It says med. in the parts diagram but when you
look up Tamiya springs all the white springs are listed as extra stiff?
Need a stiffer spring but not sure what to use..
Red dot = 12.5lbs

Next one up is yellow = apprx 13.5lbs

Two other guys at the tracked were watching and even ran the car a few laps, agreeing with what I saw.

That being said, the F104 diffuser is too small to do anything. They also have to be as low to the track as possible.

Will it affect cooling to the motor? Great idea though.

This might have been asked some where is there a offset diffrance between ride and tamiya wheels? right now im running ride fronts(s1) with tamiya rears (soft) and it seems to me my front is wider than the back.

I got my exotek chassis today. Bloody fast shipping!!! Ordered Thursday night and arrives Tuesday morning, gotta be happy with that.

Gotta say a little dissapointed with the quality of the carbon fibre (the cutting isn't as precise as i would have expected for 120 bucks worth) and the instruction manual isn't the best i've seen, but myabe i'm jsut spoilt with tamiya manuals

Anyway my question is. When building the shock, what is the srping used for? Is the spring an option if you want to use it as a main dampner? Also how far in should I thread the bottom ball end on the shock shaft? I don't see it mentioned anywhere. According to the pictures on the website though, thread all the way in?

I got a LOT of sanding and edge gluing to do tomorow Looking forward to seeing how this handles.

Yes the car was already shot by the time this was identified
If you notice the McLaren is correct.
