Hello,

What MM motor mount and what damper plate should i use for the F50 without any modification on the body (cutting trimming etc.) The rear part of the body is waaaaaaaay tooo low ...

Thank you in advance!

Unless you use an RML damper with an RM mount, you have to do some cutting.

I cut out the rear, and replaced it with lexan. It gives me good clearance now...

Its great :) The car felt much more planted with the lexan added to the rear as well. Also, I recommend making your own wing, or use the Reflex lexan wing. The stock wing is a bit too heavy and makes the car swing into the corners a little too much.

I second that, but your Ferrari will no longer look like an F50. Call it the F55.

I feel that with the cover, it controls the air better onto the rear wing, causes less turbulance and has more consistent downforce. So, you could say it would act wierd without it :)

In the past, I have used Enzo wheels... But I think 0mm front, and 2mm rears are better. I personally prefer 0n/1W.
