Have you tried more caster? Also a bit of negative steering exp on the radio would help

Im totally lost as to how to fix this. Does anyone have any experience of fixing this problem?

This is on ETS carpet and Volante tyres, so maybe a little less grip than many of you experence where the black crc carpet is used?

Thanks for any help!
Have you tried a front wing other than the stock wing? We found the Protoform to work really well. I have yet to try it, but the new Mon-tech from wing with the tuning flaps looks promising as well. The faster you go, the more downforce on that front wing. The AE wing is super aggressive.

Exotek just came out with one no tape!

Default Letís talk spare parts

Hey all, I just picked up a RC10F6 and Iím pumped, but coming from the off road world Iím stumped on what spare parts to keep in my box.

There are few things I despise more than a race day cut short by me not having a $5 spare part. What do you always keep on hand? Iíve heard front wings, but what else?

Rear bearings. Spur gear.

The rear pod links.

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F382032036314

Think I broke 8-10 over 14 race days. Front wing was second with 3. Iím on the 4th wing but havenít run it since end of September, and still got 14 weeks or so till race again.

Iím going to try the XRay pod links this year. Measure out the same. Another driver suggested trying them. He did break any, but is a much better driver then I am.

Get the Montech 17 front wing instead. It is the same shape and size as the Associated part and has 2 and 3 flap wing elements to adjust front downforce. Get the new front wing shims to lift the front wing, the new reinforced front upper deck post set, the adjustable caster plate and the axial front lower arm mounts. Pick up a couple different front spring sizes, rear tweak spring sizes. The alloy camber inserts are a good addition too. The plastic ones can strip. A-main has all the parts, but you might want to go to RC10.com and check out the part numbers along with checking the manual for options.

Using 2 tyraps and a o-ring. One of the tyraps is used to ty the o-ring to the sidebar, the other one act as a hook for the o-ring. Works perfect

Avid racing, sorry. You could also use the new FT standoff set which will be much easier for you to get in Germany.

Default diff locking

Gentlemen-Recently while at the track, overheard many racers talking about locking their diffs by either cranking the adjustment screw tight or using pegs in the spur gear instead of balls. I have been racing onroad before diffs were available like pre ASC 12E and, for the life of me, cannot fathom how you could get a car to turn without the rotation of the rearend around the corner. Am I missing something? Of course, as I stated before, almost all my carpet racing was done on foams, as opposed to CRC rubber. THX

Default Exotek

Will the Exotek front upper suspension system work with the forward servo mount system on the F6? THX

What is the part# for the front wing shim and the reinforced upper deck post? I'm not seeing either on RC10.com.

Thanks,
