What are the specific yokomo tires you run up front? Similar to PITs?

I haven't run Yok tires in a really, really long time (back in my TRF101 days).

John, I have a set of Yok front softs if you want to try. They are almost as aggressive as 574 but react a bit different. I don't have much testing on them on carpet, only asphalt.

Dan, I just want to try them out of curiosity. Thanks for the hook up.

This thread is missing some pics of your F1R3 cars! I'm fiddling with my Protoform 14 body, i can't get the back low enough to be level with the lower chassis...

sorry guys I have been finishing up finals for this last quarter

but yes the yok soft is a little different than a 74. I think that they are less aggressive but have a little bit better mid to high range steering. and I think that they dont build up as bad as the 74.

I have liked the mediums on asphalt as well. acts sort of like a tamiya kit front but with a pit profile! plus theyre cheap!

Almost done! Sits pretty low. Motor wires are in between side tubes under rear top deck.

So how do I source a complete conversion kit since this part: F104 ADJUSTABLE FRONT ARM SET is not available?
I see on exotek website the chassis conversion without a front end, the lower ifs comes without the upper arm.
I won't use F104 upper arm since one board hit they bend.
