I link the 2 wishbone together (stiffer the front damping), result in more resposive steering.

Well some one has to keep you guys in line, or did Dean and Max refer to me as the Jam car.

Ran it up and down the road to wear the tires in some, but just in case they have no grip i have my VTA tires to fall back on. The cheapy Leopard brushless, not too bad for around $50.00, I think the EZ-Run has a lot more torque but the Leopard does match the F10 pretty good. So we will see how it goes, it does not matter how fast you are, as long as your one of the surviving cars at the end of the race.

Thats how dean and max play. throw out a jam car to jam up the leaders so they can catch up... just playing. watch out for the red ferrari f60.. only tamiya car in the class so far.

I think, HW Xtreme Stock will be just right for any race. Play around the turbo boost to run over some car.

if no controll on tyres, I could put on my Nitro Car foams tyre on the orginal wheel Hex. Could hit 60mph on staight.

Exclamation This is my ride



Raced it for the first time 2 weeks ago against Tamiya and 3Racing chasis's and out of the box you will find it very hard to find rear grip. Unless you back right off and coast through the turns you will spin out and result very poor lap times 38 secs (last) with the other brands running fast 23-25 secs laps, During the night I was able to get the super hards to perform scrub in and perform a best lap time of 33secs. After spinning out int he 3rd qualifier and constantly running last and being the first round of the season I saw know piont of continuing.

$250.00 later and waiting on parts to arrive have upgraded all available options in the hope of finding rear grip.If I can't get it with tuning the ball diff and soft tyres I will go and get the Exotek FX10 and convert to foams as I race on asphalt in the evening from 6pm at night. I run a 17.5 LRP V12brushless,Novak GTB esc, savox low profile servo (no servo saver )and spektrum receiver.

Any idea's what complete rim and tyre foam tyres will fit the HPI F10 ( link me) I purchase from USA,ebay, and Hong Kong

I desperatly want to acheive a win for the F10 as HPI is not reperseted well at my club and I really like the brand.

Chris
