Just returned from DHI with Marc as the winner.
find videos here
http://www.rctv.dk/dhi2009/index.html

Just spoke to the TRF team on the new car and set up. On this years DHI they all used the WE with the set up from last year only changes was:
Oil: MuchMore 550 F/R
Sus Mount C/C, aX/E
Rear damper in Hole 4

Through out the race they stayed almost the same - but played a little with the rear damper position and oil and D/D vs C/C
Another thing was the one piece top deck- they played alot around with the topdeck -to provide enough rear flex- they use the old two piece deck or the 2 piece deck with the rear brace cut in two or when using the one piece, they took out screws

PS: if your delrin cups is worn by the swing shaft cut a grove in the cup - it will prevent the free movement of the suspension arm and can create a unstabile car

I was going to do the suspension upgrade but once I started figuring all the whatevers I just broke down and picked up the WE kit. I got a 416 for sale cheap now.

Yes, and the rear piece appears to be cut through the middle.
Nice to hear from you Tony. You have to admit that 2nd Main had a dramatic ending

Tamiya has been good for me. It got me a TCS Championship title. It will be fun sharing notes. You always had great insight for Xray drivers when you ran for them.

Yeah Mark, that second one was fun. Deserved two winners

It'll be a pleasure sharing notes. Been running the car almost a year now and love it. So easy to get it right. And as long as you keep an eye on the diff, the bearings and the spool outdrives it is also easy to keep it running well.

Drop me a PM or e-mail when you have something to discuss.

there are more holes in the shock towers for top shock mounts .
diffs are externally adjustible and have knotched drive rings.
(1C,1C inverted+3mm)/(1XA+0.5mm,1F+0.5mm) from front to rear.
hope that helps you.
