I must have missed that in the earlier photos, shimming the whole arm would be the correct way to fix it.

One other thing that might help would be going back to the silver side spring but preload it at least 1 full turn. That will help stabilize the car, but it will still roll and maybe help your mid corner.
thanks for your input robk.

I think with the low track and air temps the 575 we're the way to go. I did sauce up and heat the 572, but they are very old tires. I've not tried the 574 as the 571 work well, but you've made me think this over a bit more. Worth a try.

I will give the silver spring a try as suggested. I was wondering if moving the link from the middle hole as per manual to the inner hole would help as well to give it more roll. Will be something else to try this weekend.

Yes, no one likes coil binding. Any problems with the length if the king pin?

Kingpin is good. But I think this is the lowest I can get the front. Just got esc installed. Time for test and tune

I've ordered many kits from them and never had any issues with them, not even with customs.
Stella Models might be the masters at packing but i probably wont order from them again ....i hate companies that drag there heals once they get your money....if i ordered from rcmart the package would have been shipped already!

Thats why places like rcmart and tqrcracing will always get my dough same day shipping and tracking number.....and i know of the time change in Hong Kong!

I might have made mine too low. 4.4mm at the front with only servo.
It took me 2.5 hours to build.

Quick one guys, do you need to cut the lugs off the servo to fit it? or is it ok with the lugs on?

Posted a few scanned pages from RC World of Satoshi Maezumi's TRF101. You can find them all here; http://kentech.blogs.se/

It shows how different Satoshi Maezumi's TRF101 is to what we normally use. Formula Tuned 32T motor, LiFe battery, original F104 tyres and it's fitted with the Tamiya TGU-01 gyro.
