The B5 sockets are smooth as silk, no bind at all. Much better than the stock plastic inserts. As I have the alloy camber inserts, I can actually tighten them snug with no fear of them compressing, or leaving them loose and the screw backing out. I did notice the arms did have a little up and down play, but none side to side.

Racing on the black CRC carpet... does the aluminum chassis improve the car on that surface? Waist of money??

I tried and it is not any faster. However, it does help with the chassis twisting. The carbon can get twisted causing a tweak and not return to center. The aluminum resolved that issue.

Iím really interested in F1. I race TC 17.5 now and love it!

Default Assoc F6

Here's a new F6 I'm building for Frank Killam. Any "racers tips" for the assembly I should know about. So far just building it like the kit says.
Protoform 15 body fits best?

1: PF fifteen body, there is an extra piece of lexan in the bag, what is it.?
2: that Front Arm stiffener ASC8643, anyone tired it on CRC BK Carpet? any thoughts to share?
If the extra piece is what I'm thinking about it's the scoop that you attach to the body above the driver's head.

I used the fifteen body on mine. The two other in my group that switched to the F6 used the JConcepts Javiln body.

JConcepts New Release ? J21 Javelin ? Team Associated F6 Body ? JConcepts Blog


For us that had no previous experience with pancars, the build was little confusing. Not best assembly guide Iíve used. But for those with experience most seemed to think it was easy.

For me the side pod links have been most common break. Think I broke 8 of them. Iíve got a set from XRay to try this year.

Front wing was second. Iím on number 4. The pavement had couple low spots that mine seemed to find. Associated now offers shims for the wing. Iíve got set but still waiting to try them.

I would suggest getting the New Beefy Black standoffs for the car. I had a couple of violent traction rolls and those stock ones just bend (the longest one). You will have to modify the Steering ball cups though for they rub on the standoffs cuz they are thicker.

Can you guys hit me with a good starting FDR for this track? I don't know the specific dimensions. Just a good start would be nice.
I've never run this type of car before. I'm running 25.5t, rubber tire, LMP.

I just finished my kit tonight. Count me in as another person who's kit was missing an M3x6 screw. I'm also a bit surprised at how short a lot of the fasteners are, there are a few locknuts that don't get enough thread into them to reach the nylon locking part. I'll find out how the kit runs tomorrow, weather permitting.

A good starting point is 2.9 FDR. Temp and check it after 2 minutes and adjust gearing. The track looks pretty flowing and you could end up around 2.6 or so.

Is this the part that you are referring to?

https://www.teamassociated.com/parts...5+shock+pivots

Did you use these in place of part number 4755 in the front suspension?
