The stock F109 tires are actually really good. A lot of guys also like the Zen tires for outdoor.

Thanks! I will probably start out on the stock tires and also pick up some F103 foams for comparison. It sounds like going with a medium grip front / high grip rear is the way to go with these cars. The local guys are running the Tamiya B foams in the front and A foams in the rear. I don't know if the F103 / F104 foams directly correlate or not.

I also ordered the Yeah Racing alum rear axle for the F103 and compared it to the stock FRP axle and they are identical.

It's very very cool that 3Racing made so many parts of the car interchangeable with the Tamiya products. I think that will help the popularity of the car tremendously, it sure helped me in my decision to buy it.

I was going to run a std sized servo but after looking at all the installations decided to order up a low profile servo instead.

I still need to order up the CRC spring kit. Are there any other spring kits that are similar if I can't find those? I see somebody mentioned using Associated springs, what car are those from?

i used the Corrally springs and adjusters from the new 1/12th sale from them but the springs are too hard i think causing the rear to have no rear grip , just bought the hop up srpings from 3Racing and this was better but still no tweek screws

I know a lot of guys out here ran Zen 25 in the rear and I think 35 in front. I also liked Tamiya soft HBR all the way around, or med HBR in the front and soft HBR in the rear

Associated 12R5 should be very similar. CRC and SpeedMerchant sidesprings should be the same. RC4LESS.com probably has a set as well, under progressive springs.

any one got any set ups for rubber tire low to medium traction track.I have tried every thing with this car on rubbers and it just wont produce any rear grip. My 103 eats it on rubbers.

Yeah the F109 is a shocker on rubbers..well mine was outdoor ashphalt track but foams were amazing..softs on the back and hards up front were dialed.:nod:

Some ideas:
* Use the forward holes on the chassis for the rear links so they will be longer.

*widen the rear end using axle spacers

*widen front end using axle spacers.

*3.5 offset steering arms from Tamiya

*Increase the angle of the shock so it angles down more.

Pardon, in fact i am also looking for using F104 rubber tyres in concrete track.
Could you tell me what are these forward holes of chassis of rear links, please?

Best regards

it makes the car more stable (so i was told by a pretty good 1/12th scale drivers dad/mechanic ) Cheers Pieter ,

it is something to do with the pivot point and where the rear end moves in corners

Sorry form my unconsciousness, in fact this is my 1st time to having a pan car so i am still new from these kind.
Could you or someone else explain me more, please?

About that 3.5 offset knuckle, don't you think is too much to use it since using f104 wheel will put the f109 wider in front?

Best regards

Nice- Does the diffuser work?
does the new front wing add steering? Seems pretty busy w\ all the air dams and such.
When I ran oval-the only thing that really made a difference was side plate size.
