This car is just growing on me more and more Everytime I race it now that there is more than just myself running it now at my track and can bounce ideas off other guys and get results.

I ran the car yesterday at 360v2 and was able to have myself and another f1 in the feild. Starting 9th to finish 6th just missed out on hardware after fighting a rough start.

What all would be necessary to change the LM16 to F1? Iím curious cause We donít run LM around here and I either want to get rid of it or convert it. LM looks neat but Iíve only ran it a couple times . Donít really need another F1 but Iím curious what it needs. Only thing I did to it was get a spur adapter to run any pan car spur.

Sorry, took me some time to get back to RC ...
I have an old F103 and just tried to mount this part to my WRC - the part is a perfect fit as you can see in the pictures

So at least there is an easy solution to fit all other rear wings.
For the front it might be a different story ...

Original turnbuckles and ballcaps worked well for me the last years whole outdoor season!

Guys had my donated '16 at the Nats this past week, could not get the diff to hold a setting at all, and I had some people that are diff experts that couldn't fix it. Didn't see anything obvious missing but something had to be. Are there any diff sets from another manufacturer that will fit, the offsets spur makes it different from Associated and the like. Any ideas?

Hi Rodney,

Bring it to Easley next Saturday. I'll take a look at it. I've built a couple of the WRC cars before.

Wouldn't hold setting? Loosen during the run or??

Did you try the setup I posted in the other thread?

Yeah loosen during run, had to add conical washers to get it to even tighten enough to get around the track one time. Didn't have the problem 2 weeks earlier on gray carpet. I'll look up thr post you refer to.
