Thanks! Just finished building this kit, however I am new to F1, I would like to learn what people are doing with it. Someone had a setup they wanted to share in the 2016 thread, that would be awesome!

I read the manual, that's how I came up with the part number of C40015, which can not be found on Roche Japan or Roche USA site.

C40057 is the front / second type that you're referring to.

Roche / Roche USA do not list

Car was amazing through the S section and responsive like a 1/12 in switchbacks. Setup is super
