Viet... I have the exact same problem. But my 2x6 flathead screw broke off.
I also bought my kit from RC Mart. I will document with pictures and email RC Mart tomorrow.

anyone run on carpet yet? We run asphalt, but only about a month left before guys start moving back inside and are tired of running outdoors.

I'll be running on carpet almost exclusively. Just waiting on Tower to get this car in stock. Have a big race at my local track in a few weeks, and hoping to have it before then so I can get it built and ready to race.

Doh...RC Mart is going to have to take care of that I'm afraid. Tamiya America, Inc. is the official importer of Tamiya goods into the USA and we're equipped to handle and service the items we sell to our wholesale and retail partners. We can't service "gray marketed" items under warranty.

Erik,

You don't need this car, you're fast enough.

My trf101 in action. From last Saturday.

The high caster angle lets the front wheels to get 5 of neg camber at full turn when I set the car with 2.5 neg static camber.

Awesome shots.

If it weren't for the corner dot, you would be hard pressed to tell it from the real thing.

I think that's what draws many to scale F1 - they look so real.

Get ready to have to buy a new body because 2013 is the last year of the step nose for F1 car. FIA rules state the 2014 cars have to have a much lower nose height. Something like 2013 is 540mm and 2014 will be 200mm.
