Does anyone have any recommendations or links for basic information like setting droop, tweak, etc. for an F1? I'm primarily an off-road racer and am a bit lost on F1/Pan-Car setups.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm looking for the blue aluminum upper arm mount for the front suspension (3454890) for a TRF101. I've looked high and low and can't seem to find anyone who has one in stock (TQRC Racing, Banzai Hobbies, RC Mart, etc). Any suggestions?

Looks like it's narrow (>190mm), is that right?

Same top arm and ball mounts as the 101 right?
Looks like everything else is unique.
Aluminum front mount is one off as are the servo mounts.

Was hoping something from the W front end might be the same but it's not lookin like it thru my comparisons.
Not even using the newer 101W type aluminum ball mounts?

The shape of the upper arms looks slightly different, the ball mounts do look the same though. The new servo and arm mounts appear to have a caster adjustment that wasnt present on previous versions.

I would guess thats not caster setting but the new arm and servo mounts that will let you mount old or new upper arms for 101 (+new lower 101 arms) and 101w arms on same mounts so you can switch front width without servo and arm mount removal. Hope you understand what I mean.

Default should I keep trf101w?

Hello
I recently got trf101w as a gift.
The problem is I have a vbc f1 kit already and tamiya one seems very similiar.
So my question is if I should keep it or sell it to get the other latest kit, which is likely to be xray one.
Looking forward your input on this.
Thank you.

Just bought my 1st F1 kit and opted for the TRF101W, I didn't realise that this kit was designed to perform with foam tyres, the car builds up lovely but the front end is massively wide. I have run it on the rubber ride F1 tyres and it seems to perform ok but I would like to run the front end narrower for better steering.
Does anyone know if I am best to sell the kit and buy a TRF101 kit or will this new item that was at the toy fair #42286 carbon front suspension set fit my car and make it 190mm?
