Whats up fastguy!? Nice racing with ya in Fresno. You should try and make the Stock Challenge at 209 raceway in Stockton in December. F1, USGT and 17.5 Sedan are usually the biggest classes.

This past weekend N-Control racing circuit had their grand opening race. This is a dedicated outdoor asphalt track with a very smooth surface. Outside air temps were in the mid 80's and track temps were in mid 90's. Once again the F1R3 was flawless taking me to a F1 win
Great product

see post #1936 for MikeR's asphalt setup:
Changes i did too car::
-toe out 1.5 or so
-rear axle titanium fenix gear diff with heavy grease
-side link outside position
-wheel base long
--center shock i had stiff blue spring(35wgt oil) but i will go with the soft flow red next race weekend at same track, same as his setup sheet
--side tube 5,000 wgt kyosho grease
--yokomo super soft side springs(purple) and yokomo roll(side) spring holders
--fronts were 574's and rears were ride xr's. Clean fronts only and sauced rears with either paragon or FX2
--Front IFS i used kyosho 30,000 wgt diff grease
I believe that's all of changes

I ran them last week on our carpet track, front and rear. Old gray carpet.
Car was unbelievable for about 10-15 laps, like it had foam tires. Then the back end was starting to swap ends, slowly at first and then bam, started happening as soon as I got on the throttle. They picked up tons of crap. Look like a real F1 tire at the end of a race - you know, when they drive off line and pick up as much rubber as possible. Not only could you see the goo all over the tire, they felt like they had "rough skin" on them.

The fronts worked okay like that, but just no rear traction. Had to clean them off, but didn't do any good. Haven't run them outside on asphalt but they would probably be best there. Might be a good way to pick up all the old crap off of a carpet track though.

btw, Lightning FX with "pretty much" kit setup.

A friend just ordered the Exotek front end from rcmart for his F104 and unfortunately a wrong item was shipped within the kit.

Hes talking to RCmart about the problem, just letting you know about this, Mike.
