Long enough so you can use the amount of droop you want to run. Personally, I have mine set at 62.5mm.... lets me use down to 3 on a yokomo gauge for droop.

hey guys!

im just curious with guys that have both the 415 and evo 5 chassis, have any of you guys done a back to back comparison run with the 2 chassis and find one chassis faster than the other in terms of lap times?

also im looking for responses from stock 27T / 23T and 19T drivers

thanks!

Edd
can i use the evo 4 blocks ?? so then i don`t have to run shims under the newer MSX blocks

i have gone for -5 degree toe out on front & 2.5 degree rear toe In

my evo 4 was very much faster then the evo5 kit setup ,the biggest difference between the 2 was the roll centre`s
the newer blocks are all 1 mm lower then the std evo4 blocks

No reason why not. For maritme (and tight tracks in general) I found high roll centres worked well. With 2.5 deg, you could use E and X for the rear blocks, no worries.

Edd car is flying now
raced against Foam racers with rubber on mine 5 th in the A then won the final ,
putting the evo 4 blocks on or raising the std ones with 1mm shims is very good ,every thing is tamiya no x-ray springs & all white front ,blue rear roll bars back & front ,i do my droop by measuring from the top of stub axle to the pitboard 25mm front,24mm rear
i gave -5 dgree toe out on front E front-D rear;,that made it really lively upfront ,kept them on & worked around that,will legthen the rear camber link to go in outside hole (C) on hub
45wt all round,3 hole ,toying with idea of going 2 hole
got X front/D rear on the back blocks 2.5 toe in (i think),confusing them blocks

looking at the MRE,MSX setups on certain indoor tracks rubber/carpet they put .5 to 1mm shims under blocks also
this diffiently is a good thing to do for indoor racing ,cyclone do it ,BD yoke on front
using a 72 spur br robinsonracing with 22 pin ,well fast with co27t/F-lines from EA

evoIV blocks sit 1mm higher than evoV/415 blocks. since they are 1mm higher, your roll center will change.

Hi Guy's
As the doctor ordered well you racers anyway

I have now designed a CCF + which is a separate carbon fibre bracket that can be attached to your existing CCF, The fan can sit above or below the carbon fibre bracket and can be cut to the desired length when the desired position has been adopted. It will hang over the speedo to help keep it from over heating, this item is especially useful for the brushless speedo’s because of there thermal cut out. There will be different length screws along with different length carbon fibre stand-off collars. all for £19.99 of your Britsh pounds and will fit onto ALL CCF's except JRX-S
Cheer Malc THE CAN MAN

The car in the photo is Chris Kerswells, and its the first of its type.
