Heh guys, just got a F201 off Ebay. Uts loaded with all sorts of 3 racing stuff. My first question: When looking at set up sheets from others, does the 3 Racing stuff change the settings, or do I follow the sheets as normal? Thanks, and stoked to have one finally.

Carl,
Are you going off road racing tomorrow? (Wed.) If so bring your F201 and I'll give you a base line setup. There's a couple of variables that will determine what you'll want to do.

Thanks. I won't be able to make it. I have family coming to town, but I might stop by early to test during the day. I just set up my BJ4x4 and need to make changes (big changes) to my AE B4. I'll try and bring my F1 too. What time will you be there?

Carl,
The track does not open until 4:00p.m. I could make it out there by 4:30 or so.

Default shocks

hey all,

I just received my adjustable shock piston sets for the car. Can someone shoot me a general place to start on oil and which pistons (1-hole or 3-hole) for racing on Carpet/stock motor?

Thanks,
Ray

When I ran carpet, I used 1 hole with the stock weight oil (yellow) that came with the car all the way around.

Default Newly refurbished F201

Haven't really paid attention to my F1 since after the TCS, but now just got the new chassis for X-mas.
