Calvin,
It looks like you're not using the HPI aluminum bulkhead pieces. Are you using the 3Racing bulkhead? It looks like you've got a 1 piece bulkhead and 3Racing is the only manufacturer of a 1 piece bulkhead I know of. Thanks!

Hi Calvin,

looks nice, but which tyres did you use? Looks like Ride or Pitshimizu.
How do these tyres work and is abrasion lower than with HPI tyres?

Kind regards,

Stephan

Stephan,
Last week I used the soft tires from Hiro (HPI/HB) team driver and this my first time I run the car. The F10 is much easy to drive than the F104.
Get S and M set of 4 for each compound.

MaxSp97, are those miniature dampers on the front of your F10? If so, do they take the place of the standard front springs? Can you show us some more close-up pics? Lastly, do they work better than stock?

Tshockers are from Mini Z and I still using the spring (gold one from Cyclone 12 scale). This is helping to reduce the front nose bouncing (using oil 100wt plus). I'll take a close-up shot later today.

Here are the close-up pictures. It's working better without the spring.

Hi,

I have already these tyres. They work really good with this car. But after every run you have to glue them, because they tear at the edges again and again....
So I would like to test some other tyres. Furhermore Ride or Shimizu are a bit cheaper...

Has anybody else experiences with Non-HPI tyres?

Kind regards,

Stephan

The HPI SOFT tires are really really good. You just need to make sure you wash them well with soap and hot water before assembly to remove the mold release film on the rims and tires.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

MaxSp97, if I understand this right you are no longer using the small kingpin springs on the front knuckles of the front end, but are using these mini dampers instead which appear to work better than the springs and reduce the front end "bounce". Is that correct?

I still use the kingpin spring. I used the gold spring "hard" from Hot bodies Cyclone 12. The shock is help to reduce the front end bouncing or you could try with 5000 - 20000 or more diff lube on the king pin will does the same.

+1
I used the green Scott pad to scuff the rim and cleaned with rubbing alcohol.
I used the thin CA from Losi or Proline to glue the tire and never come off.

So I'm looking at picking up an F10 for a new indoor carpet track and I need some user feedback, I have the past 20 or so pages of this thread and got some great info thus far but I have a couple questions...

Other than the kit itself I was going to pick up one of Mike's chassis kits, the ball diff, servo mounts, and shock.

What else would you pick up for the initial build that are the "must have" parts?
