The ASF module and adapter will also work in the Futaba 3VCS stick transmitter. Functionally it's roughly equivalent to the 3PK. I never had any luck getting the 3PJS to work with the module/adapter,...

The thrust bearing needs some grease.



Tamiya typically has a metric pitch spur. You need a small adapter ring for 64p spur gears. So, either run Tamiya-size spurs and pinions, or run a 64p...

Do you measure ride height with the battery installed? Either way, the front wing shouldn't be dragging, normally.



Tyres are indeed the most important piece, the rest of the setup does...

Drove it for the first time last night. After some strong words about threadlock not working (and losing one of the upper kingpin ball holders), some loaned parts put me back on the track, and it...

I've had to use o-rings to remove the play. The steering arm ball-ends were fine, the grey cup/blue alu ball combination used for the side damper had enough play to allow about half a mm movement on...

Mostly finished building mine. Like what I see, but didn't quite expect the amount of slop on the ball-ends for a kit like this. Also not sold on the diff yet, the other similar diffs I have run...

I doubt you'll see much of a difference performance wise with any of the modern cars, if properly assembled. I'd base my choice of car on the following:

- competion rules
- parts availability

I suspect it's just movement; I never suffered a problem on the track, but I was able to run into problems by alternating maximum steering left and right a few times. This was with a LRP ESC system,...

Either should be fine. Compared to the 1251 the 1252 is slightly faster at the expense of torque. Have seen some issues with Savox power consumption, though, you ESC needs 6V, and quite some power to...

I'm surprised they went with an aluminium rear axle. Carbon is pretty much the standard these days.

According to Serpent, they've been running it at the ETS series... which makes we wonder about the width. Also, ETS f1 is (was?) limited in which chassis you can run.

Also make sure the car is legal for your track if you plan to race it. Some regulations explicitly ban non- direct-drive cars.

There's only so many ways you can build a sidelink rear pod :P.

Not sure about fragile. I've found F1 cars in general to be very sturdy. With a link front I'd be worried about the rods bending or...

Ironically that rule allows the original Corally wheels, just not the later Pro10 wheels. :D

Of course, this whole discussion isn't new. My take is that F1 rules don't state realism, but an open...

There's also 3rd party steering blocks that allow shims to be used. I've worked with the TRG ones.

That said, you're not going to be able to get down to the rim with the stock F103 rims,...
