Hi guys,

just bought a F2005 to add to the collection along with all the parts minus the aluminum heat sink which i'm still looking for.

anywayz, does anyone have problem with the front tire hitting the front wing when it's turned all the way? or it shouldn't be a problem when it's running?

Wow... seems like everyone ignored you ! (j/k)

No... I don't think it is in any way normal for the tires to hit the wing. (we are talking F1, right ?) Something's going on there, Maybe you have the rear tires on the front rims ? (only thing I can think of that might do that on an F1) I know they get close, but I never saw one rub before.

nah, I don't have the rear tire on the front. it rubs.

currently i've adjusted the steering range so that it doesn't hit.

Hmmm... didn't know they did that they hit like that. Well, it shouldn't dampen performance, I rarely (never, actually) have full throw on my F1s anyways.

thanks for the quick response.

i tried it on my walmart style track and seem like it doesn't or rarely you need to turn the steering that much. :)
