Default Build Question

Hi.

Would like to ask if there are any special points of attention when building this kit. I'll be starting mine this weekend and I just want to make sure that I get it right.

Thanks.

No doubt the YRF is a pretty slick F1 though
I know someone who was there when he was running , foams, and mod, I think I heard 5.5 mentioned

Man that guy FLYS

Wish the camera guy would have just zoomed out instead of trying to follow the car, makes it hard to see how fast the car is going through chicane.

What sort of handling characteristics change from moving the side links from the most narrow position to the most wide?

Thumbs up TRF101 first run : great results

Had a chance to run the TRF101 @ the track for the first time. Setup is derived from kit build, with black springs, 400cst oil in the main damper.
Tires are [used] Pit571/572 no traction compound cleaned with SimpleGreen. It worked really well with the 571/572 combo, and should yield similar results with the TCS setup.

Mechanical grip on this kit is outstanding. Steering is precise and stable on the straights.
The only kit change made towards the end of the day was to change the car to silver springs and add a touch of drag brake to the ESC to increase initial turn in.

Compared to my F1R (with 2.5mm flex chassis), the 101 is easier to drive and throttle can be applied earlier out of the turns. Compared to my F104WGP (Pit541/545), steering was less on black and gold springs - on par with silver.
Rear grip is better than both (used the same exact wheels/tires on the F1R) when I did back to back runs.

I let my bro-in-law drive it, and he has 0 time driving F1 cars (just 4wd short course and TC) and he found it "fun and as a surprise - easy to drive".

Short clip of test runs:
+ YouTube Video
