I run an Exotex front end as well, battery forward cooper side springs and a cooper center. My car seldom if ever lifts the inside wheel. I found Droop at rear and front is critical to my driving. I did have to lengthen the motor slots a bit when I added a CRC spur for a smoother diff. It's a great car!
What are you running for droop settings front and rear? Would like to see the entire setup if if you could.

Hey Mark, have you been able to figure out the issues you were seeing?

good luck and keep us posted
BTW, that was so cool to return your call about an RC F1 car and hear 1:1 F1 cars in the background. Serendipity!

I've had limited experience with the car on carpet (practice at TQ and watching Jason run my car at the IIC) but it seems on pace with a similar soft set up. It's on asphalt that I'm having issues, just can't get the rear hooked up and have any steering. When the bite is very high it's good but anything less and the rear is too loose. I usually have to run soft rears (Pit 575) to get the car around the track but then it pushes badly. One of the fast F1 guys running the Rebel at NorCal doesn't seem to have these problems and runs hard rears; the car looks stuck and steers. We have discussed comparing our two cars to see where the problem is but haven't been able to test together yet. Once we do that I hope to have some answers

Not yet - back out to Camarillo (outdoor asphalt) to try to get this thing dialed in before the next UF1 race at TamiyaUSA.

In the USA it's all rubber tire. Sure wish we ran foams!

We also cannot run the excellent kit front end since the rules require attachment points to be inside the body, so most racers bolt on the Tamiya F104 front end. I run mine with the Exotek adjustable upper arms.

From 1/12 to WGT to this car we always turn the links upside down too

It's the driver........ And it doesn't help that you painted the body with dirty pink nail polish...

Hi
This coming Winter season we will be running f1 on carpet. 21,5 blinky and on rubber. Think mostly will choose the ride tyres. Any ideas on that choise??
Can you take a picture of the exotek front on your car,please?

Thanks in advance
Michael

This care has so much potential. I'm struggling with balancing the weight transfer on carpet. My track allows for some long sweep curves on to a long back straight (100')+/-? It looks like a stiff front spring and soft center. Pit tires off course. As I moved to stiffer front my car got to feel more comfortable. I want to do more with my radio (Helios) to work out more of my set up issues. F1 is a blast...
