Please refer to the photos n video. It's stock setup except i used shorter 10mm front standoffs.

Note that during my first run, the track had a left turning high speed sweeper. Hence car rolled right. Thus, you'll notice that the graphite pattern chassis protector has most of its wear on the right side too.

If you have too much steering travel some rims(as well as some tires) might rub on your arms and I believe this is what is happening with your car. Try spacing out your tires with shims or decrease your steering travel.

Thanks for the tips Sg1! I'll try each one!
I'm new to F1 n i came from off-road background. I've got lots to learn. If you don't mind sharing what each of your tips does I'll really appreciate it!

-less steering turnbuckle angle (change Akerman)
-add weight under bellcrank (2oz. min.)
-Try batteries inline
-Try raising shock at upper pod plate mount

Thanks for the tip idbdoug.
I'm running kit front white springs. Anyone knows what hardness those are?
I've got a set of 4 pairs of different hardness tamiya front springs. Silver, gold, red n black. Which one will be a good choice?

Perfect, thank you. Prefer those since they don't have writing on them

I am picking up Rapide EVO and noticed motor fans be mounted on them. Attached are two different ways I have found to mount them. Which one would work better? I also seen one where someone had prototypes of 3D print mounts that go where the stand offs for the rear wing mount are.

I personally use the R1 Band that goes around the motor. Puts the fan right on the motor openings. Fan on endbell side works, but I dont think it is as effective. As far as I know, the roche doesnt have a 3d printed rear mount/diffuser

I've heard of other people, (including myself) , having the same problem with other brands of axles too.

Also be careful you are not way over tightening the axle as it will may be the cause of your problem.

Just CA the tip back in again and it try it again.

Noticed that in the pictures of your car from IIC. Looks like it works very well.

This can happen with pretty much any brand except Tamiya, which is all steel back to the hub. I have done it with other brands. You need to drill and pin the threads. I have used a small drill bit and the same size music wire. CA the wire into the hole oversized, and dremel off the excess. No more loose thread.
