What are you guys using for a mod setup?

I have the double one-ways and a solid center and front diff.


Should I use the solid center and front diff for mod?

or the solid center and make a front locked diff?

Thanks,

GoFaster

hi guys, i just got my 414M a couple of weeks ago, the first time i tried it i enjoyed the car, set-up was that of surikarn's set-up when he won in south africa.

on saturday i'm gonna race on a slightly technical track, after a couple of packs, using a p2k2 motor, i noticed that my car would twitch on a very tight hairpin to the point of spinning out, any thoughts on set-up and how to reduce that dreadful oversteer problem i've been havin, tanx

That setting is not for you. Change back to original setting and then adjust from there. Do not copy other driver's setting, they just for reference. Each driver drive differently and in different race track. You will not improve your skill and you will drive shitty if you did not adjust the setting just for you.

Aku_Man,

Tanx for the advice, but again how do i reduce oversteer? I tried different set-ups and i still cant get rid of it. Does a loose diff setting promote oversteer? if so, will tightening the diff rduce it?

With over steer you have to look at it as weight transfer and how your shocks dictate.

So for instance if I am loose going in to a turn to much weight is being transfered to the front and therefore I need to stop the weight transfer. For me I would either stiffen the front springs or take away droop from the rear. Another way of stiffen the front is moving the front shocks out a hole.

Now say your loose in the middle of the turn. The problem now is the weight transfer not from rear to front like earlier but from side to side. Now this where I get confused. If anyone is reading this help me out here. I do know how to cure this problem and that is by laying the rear the shocks down one hole will give you more side bite which will help it.

The last instance is coming out of the corner. This is weight transfer from front to rear. This tells me that you are not getting enough weight to the rear when applying power therefore you need to either add more droop to the frontm stiffen the front springs some, or again lay the rear shocks down one hole.

These are things that I have kinda figured out/ read in the XXX main book which I have found to be quite helpful. If I am wrong in anyway here please correct me.

You could alo try more negative camber on the rear, this is the part where the car is at its maximum body roll. At this point, a negative camber translates into more contact patch. If the car oversteers entering a corner, try softening up the rear.

To 414 owners:

Is there any lightweight aluminium center shaft? If yes, where can I get it?
I bought the Tamiya Hop-Up aluminium ball diff pulleys and they are heavier than original pulleys. Is there other brand with lighter alu. 32T diff pulley that I can use on my 414?
