Hey there

What's the correct ball diameter for the side tube damper (plastic side)?
I think 5.8mm is quite big...

Will the upcoming IFS work with stock Tamiya arms?

Because of the damper location going through the upper a-arm it will not work with the stock plastic arm.... the Exotek adjustable upper arm will be the hot ticket.

Mike, does the IFS system for Exotek F1R2Pro look like the one of the 3R F113?

To be honest it works much the same way yes.

Those were my thoughts too. I see external dampers and not internal ones.

I was excited about it, but I don't think this fits the IFS bill.

Hi,

You realize I do race in the UF1 Series yes? I used it to TQ the last round of the UF1 2013 Summer series and received full points.

• All front suspension mount points must be located entirely within the body shell (no pan-car front suspension systems). Adjustable link front ends are OK as long as the inner mount point is located within the body. Custom ‘flared’ bodies are not legal.

• IFS suspension systems are now allowed in the UF1 Series as long as the car meets the rest of the UF1 rules.
