Other than carbon bling, does the carbon rear wing support offer anything over getting the Tamiya set 51479 RM01 C parts for the wing mount?
Getting ready for an order from 2 places....

I took the chassis rails off for the asphalt.

As far as the IFS, I couldn't make it work to my liking. It was fast but not comfortable to drive at the limit (nervous and squirrely). I put a conventional front end back on it and the car was fast AND easy to drive at the limit.

Hope that helps.

Hey
Yes. I run the R3 with IFS and also the duel crank steering kit.
It works very well but needs setting up a little different to the "normal" front end.
You can run the rails on asphalt also.
With IFS but no rails I would try gun metal front springs (reasonably hard) and very soft side springs (Black Assoc') with 10K damping oil.

If you want to go with the rails, you can come softer on the front springs.
Set your diff' as light/ soft as it will go. If you oversteer at corner entry, off-power. Then slowly stiffen the diff' a little at a time until the oversteer goes away After that, tune to your liking.

Hope that helps you out.

Regards
BM
