I run a fan. Keeps it nice and cool. I run it on the left side of the motor mount.

Default 2 X RC10F6

My two F6 chassis - orange wires is for regular lipos and the one with blue wires is for LCG.

I cant see how you can mount it inline.

Old question, but the answer is yes. You will need to use LCG batteries though as standard shorties are a little longer and too tall.

Need a little advice, I purchased a used F1 and ran it for the first time yesterday.

The suspension arm pivot ball bushing popped out , replaced the lower one. (Drivers side)

2nd time, the upper suspenion arm pivot ball bushing popped out, replaced the top one (Drivers side)

3rd time the same thing happened on the passenger side. Is this normal?

Additionally, when I gave it throttle to start the race, the car gets super squirrelly.

I donít remember having problems with the lowers. But the uppers yes. Was able to push bushing back in few times. But ended up replacing the upper arm. Now my driving has improved also. But have not had problem since.
My most common broken part last year was the side pod links. So far this year been good. But we have a smaller F1 group. Less chance of collisions.
Yes they are squirrelly from dead stop. Only run on pavement so far. And have not used tire sauce yet, that my next step. Full throttle at start will always spin me into barrier. This may be better on carpet, but havenít run that yet.

The guys I race with are much quicker and far more experienced then I. I basically race my previous times.

I figured out the problem, there was a spring missing on one of the pods, turnined dual rate all the way down to 35%, picked up new tires, and replaced all those pieaces in the upper arms.

First club races 0-3 heats not finishing
2nd club race 1st race was good then radio shutoff
Main event I won, no issues and I drove much better.

I'm not aware of a titanium diff. Fenix and Xray make gear diffs that fit. I had my dad machine a titanium rod to fit the High Velocity RC spool flange for me because I kept breaking the carbon ones, but it is pretty heavy in comparison to the carbon. If you want a durable ball diff that isn't too heavy, grab an Xray hollow steel one.

Ive been considering getting some 1/4" Ti tube and making one using the bits of my broken carbon diff.. would hopefully be strong and light.

Our diffs, both gear one and sphere one, are based on Gr.5 titanium axle.

Weight is for both 40 grams, which of course can change, according the spur used.
