seems to me you have a problem with turn-in.

try:
-using 2 deg rear toe-in
-do you use swaybars? if yes use a thicker rear bar; if no then use it
-adding more dual rate (on your radio)
-add more rear droop (numerically lower on a droop guage)
-use a mazda 6 body
-rebuld your shocks

I went shopping today and there was a Xray T1FK04 that some guy build and was selling second hand, apparently this guy has 4 FK04s at home. He built this one and never used it. It has a XRC chassis and wide upper deck as well as Hudy spring steel outdrives and a one way fitted. It is so new the battery foam wasn't even dented...

So I bought it. It cost $1500 HKD, which is 148.65 Euros or $192.497 USD. It is half what a FK04 kit would cost here new, but mine has the XRC and Wide upper deck etc.

I think this was the best way for me to go, because I already have spare parts etc.

I've attached a picture here. Sorry about the quality...it is from my mobile phone.

My T1FK is very slow during mid corner entry. Even tamiya TT-01 with silver can is able to match the entry cornering speed

If I enter corner too fast, the car have tendency to go wide losing my racing line.

If I immediately push the gas ( don't let the car behind me to pass ) the car could easily spin.

I need more speed at every corner entrance.

What necessary tips should I consider ? Just give me the tips and I'll check the possibilities of each tips. Thanks guys.
ok, go back to base EVERYTHING SETUP and try doing this following change to the setup. i am running mod and this has allowed me to enter corners very fast: with the rear arms put the rwo arm screws closest to the bumper at the highest position and the ones right at the back holding the arms right at the bottom.

Indeed! try some more uptravel in the rear to allow your car to roll more. you could move to a stiffer spring back there, and possibly lay your shocks down a hole or two. I had a similar problem on carpet and that helped me

I just picked up an FK04 chassis, battery straps, and topdeck for my T1R.
I know I need the bearing holders for the servo saver. Anything else?
I was going to download the FK manual tomorrow and go through it but if anyone knows offhand any other items it could really help me out.

Default Spin out in corner on gas

If you have a "normal" set up on the car already, and If you are spinning out, you have a tweak or broken/bent parts.

Post your full set up after you check for the above.

Also tires are very important, are you using tires that are good and the right type for the temperature? Are you on asphault/ Carpet? Foam or rubber tires?

Ok, I'll test each one of your tips.

I have big race ( modified ) on 24th of May at circuit designated for engine cars ( very long straight, sweeper corners, wide radius corners, medium to high bite tarmacs ).

Some Xrays T1 drivers have slow corner entry problems against TRF 415MS and MR4TC SDW, so your advice means a lot to us. Thanks.

I dont trust my fabrication skills for long term durabilities lol.

Anyone have an extra antennae holder #306300 they could part with?

rcshack doesnt have it listed and I dont have one since I am converting from a T1R.

I am running a 19T Quad, and have the same problem with the rear coming around if I punch it mid corner. I actually went through my owners manual for my Losi BK2; as there are some great tips at the back concerning setups. I am going to use the outside hole on my rear hub vs the inner. This should stiffen the rear end up. Might be worth a try ?

If the rear of the car is pushing out and around. Try:

Less Dampening in rear
Increase Front Dampening (Or keep it the same)
Change Pistons if needed
Softer Spring in the rear
Harder in the front

to get more on-power steering:

decrease rear toe-in
lower front roll center
i foundout that xray cars respond well to swaybars- use a thicker rear swaybar

Default WD 40

I have some really tight screws on my BMI Chassis, and am wondering if i should lay down some wd40 to try and loosen them up a bit. As you may know, the BMI 350 chassis has some knock-outs that leaves the CF unprotected. Im wondering if WD40 will do anything to negative to the chassis. Also, are there any other methods to get the screws out of the bulkheads? i dont really want to dremel the suckers out, as hacking this chassis isnt an option, and the screws arent stripped... yet :\
