Jilles - What tire additive did you use? And how did you apply the additive to the tires. From some of the pictures it looks like you were just applying a stripe of additive down the middle of the rear tires?

Does anyone know if the F part for tamiya (battery post) might fit the 416? it seems like it does. i dont really like shrinked wrap battery pack as i cant individually discharge the cells. and dont like battery tapes too.

JimmyMac,

When building the shocks I adjust the rebound by lifting the shock piston up till a certain height. Then I check the rebound and make all for the same. Normally I use very little rebound so I move the piston all the way up and let the oil coming out as much as possible. Difficult to explain but try as much as you can and you will learn it.


Apex, I used CS high grip. Most drivers used it. Rear we applied full and 40 minutes before the run. Front 2/3 and 15 minutes before the run. The additive dryed out pretty soon so that's why it looks like we applied it in the middle.
The arms we used where the Evo5 arms.

Maybe I missed some question but feel free to ask again.

Anyone coming to the Snowbirds next week?

Hi Jilles,

Quick question regarding rebound. I set a full set of shocks up with minimal rebound. I did this by taking the the spring retainer, putting it on the shaft and then pressing the shaft up until the retainer was hard against the shock body... just an easy method to ensure the setting was the same. Checked them after setting, and all were achieving 4mm of rebound, at the same return rates.

Anyway, took the shocks off yesterday following a couple of runs on saturday night, and the amount of rebound seems to have gone up to 10mm+ now! is this normal? Or should I be checking for a leak somewhere (no oil leaks or trapped air was apparent in the shocks).

I'm not running anything above the bladder, so wonder if that was having an affect.

Good luck at the 'birds... bit of a long way to travel for me!
Ed

Thank you Jilles. I have just started building my shocks this way. I will test it out this weekend.

I have been goin to the Snow birds for several years. But didn't go last year. And can't make it this year. Perhaps next year. Have fun out there. I will be looking forward to your results.
