Evaa

Try one after the other (not all on the same run) the following :

- Higher rear anti roll bar (I'd go for the blue or the world one),

- adding spacers under the rear turnbuckle on the bulkhead side,

- adding anti dive by adding a spacer (0.7 mm for example) under the rear front suspension mount (so you'd get 1,4 mm under it, also recommended if track is bumpy),

- adding rear toe-in (you did not say how much you have, I guess 2 overall, beware of overheating your tires, ie : if they scream they're too hot, then lower the rear toe in),

- stiffer rear springs (go for the yellow),

- shock location inner on the shock mount,

- less toe in / more toe out (depends on what you have) on front.

As you can see, there are lot of ways to give more traction to the rear, and I did not listed all of them.

I must add, be careful about tweaking on this chassis, as it is very stiff, if tweaked it will have strange reactions. The same occurs when the left/right rebound is not the same.

Anyway, I love that car, gonna get it back to race right now, as my SD is waiting for spares to get back onto racing...

Default 48pitch Spur and Pinion

Does anyone run 48 pitch Spur/Pinion combo? I am having a hard time finding the right size combo to get a 7.5 ratio. So far I have got Kimbrough 48P 72, 75, 81 & 84 spurs and 48P 25T thru 30T pinions and none of the combo works.
Before I go out and buy more spurs, I would like to get some advice as to what size will fit in the 414 to yeild a 7.5 ratio. I run on unprepared surface so the stock spur and pinion got chew up pretty badly.

Thanks

yeah 48 pitch is a problem

i tried it tooo......

you have to use like 100 teeth spurs to fit it....
the only reason i used 48 pitch is 64 pitch spurs brake so easily..

i prefer 64 pitch but i wanna find some kind of protection for the spur/pinion gears

You need a 92 spurgear with a 26 pinion which will give you 7.54. And i think it will fit on the car. RW has an 92 48dp spurgear, so check at your lhs if they have them in stock or maybe they can order them. I thought RW is distributed by schumacher USA.

Correct me if I am wrong.
