I think Tamiya makes the 500w oil and I believe its close to 50w. Of course every manufacturer has a slightly different spin on weight, so your results may vary.

I'm sort of confused on the ackerman post, I thought I read elsewhere on this thread that I wanted the "inner" holes if I wanted more ackerman?!? Do you know how the geometry works to figure this out?

To the thread...
Here's a little nugget I found. The suspension balls p/n 9805739 (MP1) is now p/n 50994. They work on the EVO III and TRF414M2. These are the balls that fit on the hinge pins that go bouncing across the floor when you change the anti-dive/anti-squat spacers.

Ackerman refers to the difference in the amount turned by the inside and outside front wheel when the car is steered to one side. Usually the Ackerman angle is set such that the inside wheel turns less than the outside wheel.

To adjust the amount of Ackerman your car has, adjust the length of the turnbuckle between the two steering bell cranks. If I am not mistaken, the longer that link is, the more Ackerman effect you will have.

Cheers

What holes are good to start with on the shock towers of the 414M? For the camber links.

Thanx, that explains it and it fits Calvins description of the adjustment. I looked at the car last night and moving the tie rods to the "outer" hole will require a longer tie rod, which by the definition you gave should increase ackerman.

Calvin

Sorry for the confusion, the suspension balls are unrelated to ackerman. They are just replacement parts that I happened to find. The original part number (9805739) is listed as out of stock on Speedtech, but you can get the 50994 from almost anyone. The part is the little 5mm balls with the 3mm hole through them that fit on the hinge pins and ride in the suspension blocks.

Joey - I tried the Inner/Middle hole in front, and Inner/Lower hole in rear when I ran them on the shock tower. I think it most replicates the Evo3 upper links as much as possible.

To change the uprights, just switch them with each other. The kit setup is left: C1, right: C2. So to switch it, you would make it left: C2, right, C1. Don't forget to reset your droop since it will also affect the droop setting.

Flourine shocks have a special coating and are somewhat smoother than the standard blue TRF shocks.
