You just need to add 6mm spacers for the screws.

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.

Going to the options soft front and rear rubber will make a HUGE difference. You may actually feel understeer

Any one have a part number for the 12th scale front springs? The track I race on is a little bumpy and my nose is bouncing all over the place.

Track Rules are rubber tires, to keep it somewhat level playing field. I had used the stock tires with compound, then touring tires, which were not too bad. So basically just seeing if it is worth the cost to get the HPI tires or just stick with my touring tires?

Answer to your question "no" there is nothing currently out their with extra grip then those tyres you mentioned . as I had the same issues with traction with the stock tyres until I upgraded my racing setup. With traction compound I use wd 40 on my tyres spraying a little on a rag and wiping the surface of the tyre and allowing it to dry . And when racing go old simply green
