Thank you, Alain.
yep they do fit, might be slightly tight putting in and out.

anyone have any setups suggestion for this car yet? will be used indoors on carpet, tight track.

oh and has anyone found that the quality control of the kits aren't quite up to scratch regarding the rear axles. including warped gear diff and spur, bent shaft on gear diff side, oh and servo saver really sucks.

I didn't have any of thise problems, but the servo saver was cheesy. Since I was gonna be running a HS-225 servo I just trashed it and put a Kimbrough on it.

My rear axle is bent on mine...straight out the box.

What gearing are you guys running with the Tamiya silver can? And what type of track is that gearing for?

Any word on how to run foams???

So ive finished mine.
What should i say.
It was an easy to build car but the servo saver is crap.
And the 2 T-bar screws and 3 topdeck screws were missing.
Do they have now quality control?
Hope to get mine as soon as possible on the track.
Here are some pics.

Hi, i have just ordered an F10.
I dont know of any race series round my area, so might just use it with
a 6.5t brushless. and see how fast it can go on outdoor practice track etc.

Where can you get tires from in the UK?

also, what tires are best for use on tarmac
and what foam tires fit??

thanks.

got mine out on track for the first time today. had quite a few people come look at the car and say they liked it. i need the upgraded shock immediately. the stock shock is horrible. would really like to get some foams on there too...as thats all everyone else is running at my track.

but otherwise, it drove pretty decent. the rubber tires are getting broke in which helps A LOT.

anyone thought about machining a piece to slide over our rear hex's...so the Tamiya wheels will bolt up? a friend works at a machine shop and i might get him to make this idea happen.

ill have to look at the front to see what i can make happen also.

LHS finally got mine in and I just picked it up, will probably build it tonight!

Thinking about (in the name of keeping cost down) just running a Tamiya silver can on 6 cell on one of my old, out of rotation speed controls if one of them will fit.

That's all we can run per the rules at my local carpet track. My only problem is all the 104's are on foam...and handle a million times better.

At least you have somebody to race with, here I will be lucky to ever run across anyone else with a F-1 of any kind at all. Oh well
