Is another term for the F1 bar the blade style?
Why did everyone make the switch to bars instead of blade anyway?

Yes, I love. Normally I have 2 bars on each end, front 1.3 and 1.2, rear 2.7 and 2.5mm.

One of the things I like about them is the ease of changing bars if your at the track. Another thing is its pretty easy to modify the bars by by reducing flat section thickness or length and/or flat section width to come up with custom bars for your application.

Yes I do!
This car is under-weight, the side 16g brass won't affect the handling, only add the 15g brass cylinder if you need more oversteer. I also run with the 26g brass battery plate as well.

Are you talking about 2 speed shoes rubbing against drum? If you use set screws, it will spread them apart even more. If there's visible gap between the 2 shoes, you can turn out the set screws (if installed) to close the gap.

Yes, 2speed shoes, rubbing against the drum. Took them out, and it's smooth.

Since the shoes are new, it should be fine w/o set screws. Later, you can put them back on.

Yes, the 3x3mm set screw will rub the bell. I'm using Mugen 3X2.6mm set screw instead

Follow manual's instruction first. Then adjust for your track. The smaller the track, the quicker 2nd speed should kick in as you may already know.
