Yes the silvers in the kit are the softest springs.

Anyone know if they are going to make a rear diffuser?

Default Bodies ...

Good looking car.
I see that it says F104 bodies fit, but reading here sounds like the bodies fit has issues, requiring lots of trimming and not covering the chassis.

Can someone recommend a body that fits well?
Where is a good source to get F1 bodies and front/rear wings?

Thanks.

Go to some earlier posts . You just move the rear body post and cut the graphite part off. the Ferrari fits okay but I needed a longer body post for the sides.

I used the 2013 version on mine and it fit with no issues, just had to raise the post about 2mm to get it right.

Because I lost (dropped on the ground) the side spring holder I found a better one piece holder. Instead of the set screw and the spring holder you get a one piece Alum. 3mm screw.and spring holder from corally #75548 for 1/12th car or 1/10th. I've now got them on my F1.

I have yet to break an arm but I do keep bending the turnbuckle. I just ordered titanium ones so maybe now I will start to see arms break.
Any suggestions on how to improve rear on power grip? The car is a real handful under acceleration, even a little. I'm running hard Shimizu rears and Medium Shimizu fronts. Everyone will probably say run softer rears but all the other cars at my track are running hard and don't seem to have the same problem. I have been thinking that I need more weight transfer to the rear while on power.

Fl silver have you tried boiling the arms. try it first on one of your broken arms. we used to do that with the old Arms years ago. I have not tried it yet.
YoDog-I tried Pardus spec tires last weekend outdoors . Here what I experimented with and will try out this weekend(if I can).
front X- 20 front spring Asc (1/10)
Rear Blue sides progressive. center a very soft old associated Black spring- softer than Tamiya Red.
Also also readjusted my radio -EXpo both steering and trottlw to get rid of the problem you mentioned.Also who sells the tit turnbuckels.

Thanks for the input although it's a bit difficult to understand. Probably your accent.
Ti front turnbuckles are Lunsford 4x20mm #1026
I also found that 3 racing makes them too (model #420) but I was having trouble finding them in the U.S.

Yo Dog, are you using the shorty pack or full. If the shorty I added about 1 1/2 grams of lead to the rear right under the axle and it has gotten a little better. This car does not seem to like rubber very well but runs like a raped ape on foams.
