For comparison, lap times were only about 0.2-0.3 sec slower than my GT car with the same power train (3500kv lithium).

Can you take a video with the body off? If the pod is snapping over on the links, you may need to adjust the shims on the pivot ball. If it's only body rub, it would be nice to see how you have it packaged under the body.

Last couple times on basement track, the F1 didn’t sound or feel right. Found pieces stuck in pinion. None of the other were having this. Figured out this morning that it’s tiny pieces of the tire. You can see the tire in second picture. Trimmed the loose pieces. See how it is tonight

I wonder if the tire is sliding toward the gear when you turn left at speed. Might have to retape or glue tire to the wheel. I checked mine and it is fine. I cut some of the edge/flashing off the tires when I first assembled my kit.

I trimmed the loose edges thus morning. Most of my basement track are right turns.

Is the pinion fully pressed onto the motor shaft? Which motor is that, DXR? If you can slide the pinion further on the shaft, and flip the spur gear, it should give better clearance to the wheel. Another option would be to shim the diff axle .3mm on each side of the mount to move the spur and wheel further away from the center.

Do you glue them or just tape in?

Tires are taped. I do see now how itís likely the pinion that making contact. I may end up gluing. But last run went good.

Should have expected this body. It would eliminate the wheel to wheel contact concern I’ve been hearing about.

I am a bit of a sucker for scale looks and the GLF F1 body looked quite cartoonish to me but the LMP body is looking pretty darn good. Now if they did a 919 or R18 that might be enough to sway me.

cheers,
Jim

F1 body looked fine to me. Iíd been fine with this. For most part, all the LMP style bodies look the same.

I felt that they did a good job on the scale appearance of the GLF1. Its not as scale as the way that the Kyosho cars were done, but it has a good representation of the current style, while being fairly generic.

I do like the LMP body style though. The first thing that I did when I first heard about the GLF wheelbase, was search for LMP body options in the same wheelbase that could fit and be raceworthy....

I flipped all my spur in opposite direction... i always thought is a better fit
