Yes, bumper braces are finished but just not have had time to market and package them. Maybe late next week.

Can't help you there Phil as i run the F104 Pro in wide config and foam.
The ETS ride tires have the problem that the car is pushing when exiting the corner.
Perhaps running a bit more camber up front?
Or slightly harder setup at the rear?

regards Roy

There is not a lot you can do to adjust for that on the base F104.

You might try more steering throw. At IIC the Tamiya guys were grinding the stoppers on the front lower arms to get more throw.
Also try;
Firmer rear top spring.
Tighter diff to force the inside wheel to break loose.
Less front droop.
Less front toe out.
More fr camber.
Space the rear wheels wider, front wheels narrower.

If you had the F1R then I would have simply suggested firmer side springs

I just ordered the X1, looking to find good servo for it.

In PRO I use normal touring car servo and that is too big(too much bump steer)

What would you suggest, savx 1251 low profile, or futaba 9602 midi servo -mr Jun likes the futaba but is that the "best" option under ~80$ ?

-others? -would like to get 1 that can be installed to reduce bump steer.
