What's up guys. I'm really excited to announce that I've signed back up with Tamiya.

I cant wait to get my 416, the car looks awesome. As soon as I get the car built up I'll be on here with support for anyone who needs it.

Steel vs. aluminum up front, the steel just lasts longer. Aluminum is still plenty strong, they just wear extremely fast with low turn motors.

I also feel that the steel can hold up in a crash a little better.(IMO) but we all can't be great like you... Marcos Caster!!!!

Need some advice on gearing my TRF 416.
I use Vortex 5.5 brushless. Can someone tell me, what spur and pinion size should i use to avoid overheat my engine and esc and at the same time i can utilize the speed of the engine?
Here we have a track that have straight line about 30-40 meters.

As I'm using the 3racing alloy c-hubs, I've now got a single 1.5mm shim above the knuckle to take up the difference.

What you doing in here anyway? wrong colour isn't it?

What should I do to stop my car breaking rear traction mid-to-late corner off throttle? I was practicing yesterday and this seemed to happen after the (admittedly quite worn) tyres heated up, e.g. about 2-3mins into the run. It seemed like in longer off throttle corners the car would roll too much at the rear and then try and break rear traction, but if I tried to stiffen the rear it would make things worse. I guess the question is how can I reduce roll while maintaining rear grip? I was thinking of raising both roll centres, but might try new tyres before anything else

Does the car feel good at the beginning of the run and only starts to have the problem when the tires get hot?
