Front wing and the side links. Broke 3 wings over 14 race days. And around 8-10 side links. I bought a set of XRay links to try. But Iím still months away from running F1 again.

Just so I understand you correctly, when you say the side links, you are referring to the rear pod links?

Yes. Iíd forgotten the correct name.

They have been my only real weak point. Iím sure couple were my fault for over tightening, or collisions. Few times they just to break. Itís a cheap quick repair. Just made sure to keep spares.

Is there a setup system available for F1 cars?

Yes, Hudy has one but don't buy it. If you have a 1/10th station, all the Hudy F1 setup system basically is the front half of the 1/10th TC system and just adding a spacer for the F1 axles. You can probably buy the spacers alone or a similarly sized bearings.

Honestly, the Turnigy Trackstar 1/10 and 1/12 pan car setup system is better to get more accurate readings. Yes, the quality sucks (hard to see the markings) but it has a threaded insert for the plate that fits F1 axles perfectly and lets you get at the base of the axle.

Once I got my Hudy F1 setup station and saw what it was, I sold it. I already had a Hudy 1/10th TC station and the Trackstar pan car setup station.

Hello, I just picked up this kit today. I got the F1-Fifteen body and I'm trying to figure out how the cut-out templates work for the front suspension and steering. Does anyone have any tips? Also, what is the best way to figure out where the body post holes go?

I like to mark the body holes before I paint if I can. If not I shine a light from underneath to see where the body posts hit.

Best RC tool ever! https://www.prolineracing.com/protof...-mounting-kit/

Once I got these, no more problems locating the body post holes.

Aarowmax has the spacers that you are talking about. I just bought a set but haven't used them yet.

Is it a secret? Has anybody tried anything besides kit set-ups? Battery forward? Servo forward? Battery inline?
