i have worked out that the Xray T1R plastic battery mounts fit perfectly between the strap mounting holes, although the screw heads are only just wider than the slots, i fear they may pull through, but still much better than tape or velcro.

it seems like the car is very sensitive to changes, and also requires drastically different setups between tracks and tires.

Anyway we are on chrissy break now, i hope to have more of a chance to play before our racing kicks off again on the 10th of Jan.

FUK - man i had both of your cars sold, if i could have got them off you you would have a pile of cash.

thanks in advance!

Poop

47/112 combination (64dp) gives 5.08 and a rollout of 40.15.

If you take 48dp then the combination will be 38/72 and gives 50.49 rollout.

can anyone tell me what the 'official' width of the 414 is? i think its 186, but im not sure. has anyone tried the 6mm clamp hubs to get it up to 190?

also have any of you tried the square evo3 rear hubs, the ones that look like the new prototype ones? how did you find them.

finally, got any good foam setups?

The 414 WCR with the raised roll centre uses 4mm hexes because it would be over 190 mm with 6mm hexes.

This is due to the fact that the arms works more horizontally with a raised roll centre.

Default ride height question

I recently rebuilt my car and set eveything back to standard (414wcr). 1mm front and 2mm rear spacing on the threaded shocks, 3.2 mm front droop and 4mm rear. this gives me a ride height of around 4mm full weight (with battery etc). I read that if i wanted to raise the ride height (say 6mm), i need to set my shocks and droop together. to my understanding, if i want to raise my car by 2mm, i would have 3mm front and 4mm rear spacing on the shocks, and reduce the droop screw to 1.2mm front and 2mm rear. is this correct? but i've noticed that if i did this, the droop screws become totally useless because the length of the shock doesnt allow the droop screw to touch the chassis anymore! what if i wanted a ride height of 7mm? this would mean that the front droop screw would only be at 0.2mm...is this correct or have i totally misunderstood how to properly set the ride height?
thanks for your help!

cobra, thanks for your reply. i was aware of that, but the only reason im interested in using the 6mm hexes is for clearance to use 26mm and 28mm foams. i guess i could use a 1mm shim in front of the hex, but that could cause problems if the hex on the wheel isnt deep enough.

im planning on using the block right down on the chassis anyway, so ill try those 6mm hexes and measure it up.
