I've been in the 400-500 range for outdoors, with 550 for really high grip. Are people generally running the same weight oils all around or a bit thicker on front?

I tend to run slightly heavier in the front, mainly as I'm normally running a slightly stiffer spring up front as well. Usually only 5wt heavier though, don't think I've used more than 550wt anywhere.

In the Euros in Spain, the TRF team run 60 and 70 all arround.
70 when the track was hotter and 60 when was more cooler.

hi all,

I just completed my TRF416 WE and got a new lipo pack. I plan to add weights to balance the car.

Can someone share the 416's bare chassis weight?

Thanks in advance.

I know with all my gear, I need to add around 160g of lead to the car to get to 1500g. I've listed all my items used below

Orion Carbon 3600
LRP Sphere TC
LRP 13.5 + LRP Motor fan (the BIG one ~35g)
Spektrum Pro Reciever,
Futaba S9550
MRT iPT

I was until recently running Ti and Aluminium screws on the car, then had a thought that I might as well change the Ti ones to steel. So all the lower deck screws are now steel, with the upper ones nice blue alloy. Helps to keep the weight low, think I was able to gain around 10g or so of weight by that.

HiH
Ed

These are the Hara Springs. I didn't know there were more. If there is I don't have those numbers.

If you prefer your shocks with little to no rebound, the mod Corey suggested with a hole in the (plastic) cap is phenomenal. It makes things ridiculously easy, and screwing the cap on tight doesn't mess with things. I look forward to trying it on the track. So far, this is the best my shocks have ever felt.
