2- i'm using the stock ball diff but if i set the brake 100% end point the car will slip and turn on ti's self, but if i lower the end point that effect disappear but the car now wont brake. it's that normal?

3- have you ever used GRP formula tyres?

4- how important it's tyre additive.

car and track info.

HW justock esc justock 21.5t
shorty battery

track it's asphalt low to medium grip without any kind of additive to the track or tyres.

thanks
I set my break end point at 40% and move up as needed. At low speeds you will not have any breaks at all. But at high-speed's you will. If you need more just slightly ramp it up throughout the race or during practice. But you're right, if your brakes are set at 100% and if you lock the wheels while driving the car I will spin out because it's only 2 wheel drive.

Can someone please tell me what brands of side and front springs work with this chassis? What about wings? Also, will a standard size servo work with this chassis, or do I need to get a low profile one? Thanks!

You'll need one of the compact 1/10th scale servos that are popular now in touring car and f1.

I used the Ko Propo:

The CRC front springs are fine, but they are longer. So you have to remove shims and have less adjustability in ride ht. I use Xray springs all the way around. Just plain easier that way, since I try some of thier setups from time to time.

We use the Xray EDS wing on the front. Wings seem pretty standardized.

So the anti-roll bar rumour is true.

Looking at the drawings, it looks like a standard size servo will fit, it will just hang off the chassis a little. Can anyone confirm this? Will the body still fit?

Yes standard size servo fits. It even does not hang off in a way to be concern. More common is the use of low profile servos - cost the same but are mostly lighter.

Sway bars. Probably just the picture but I doubt Xray would be going away from orange at this point. This might bring me back to Xray...

Dropping the orange would be nice since it clashes with most F1 livery but I won't hold my breath.
