Thanx for the reply!!!

I think I gonna keep the F109 diff for now And concentrate on driving the car on our race track!! See how the car handles and if necesarry add some hopups. Gonna start with the original tires and just race for a while and then change to rubber!!
Im lookin at the Shimizu tires for unprepared suface. I believe its the F1 en R1 combination??

tried my f109 for the first time today......could not stop it from doing donuts....
i have kit oil in the dampening tube...and 60wt oil in the shock with 3 hole piston....all the springs on the car are as per kit standard...

anyway i was running the following tires

pit shimizu 0548-R3 rear and 0543 F1-M fronts

we run on high grip asphalt so any help would be appreciated
oh and i find the kit rear wing is too flexy
any other recommendations would be a great help

Blade072 what motor u running..

I have found on rubber it was a bit hard to get my 109 dialed.. When I did run them I had to take out any pod drop I had so it was zero.. Also lowered the rear to the lowest ride height. Have the crc mod with the softest blue crc springs just touching the bottom.. Then adjust for teak.

Will have to get back to rubber racing soon.. Rules r changing at our club.

thanks for all the help

oh and should i make the side dampening tube oil the same as the shock????? i did put 60wt in it with the kit springs on both the shock and sides

Made the mistake of making room for a TC to overtake me on the inside, which resulted in ending up outside of the gripline, and spinning off. Now 1st hand experience with the weakspot called the caster plate :P. Too bad the aluminium replacement is so hard to get.

So my F109 came in today and I ordered all the parts needed to narrow the car. Was wondering if anyone has done the upper arm adjustable conversion? Also did you feel it was worth it or is the stock non adjustable upper arms just fine?


Thanks,
Rob

Just get the Tamiya composite F103 front end. Its not adjustable but its almost bullet proof. You wont miss the 3racing front end at all.

Stock arms are fine. Less to mess with.
