OK, I don't know if anyone still reads this thread or runs a 414 but here goes anyway. I've noticed that the rear end of my 414M is very happy. I tried putting softer tires in the back but then the car pushes like a shopping cart. I tried putting softer tires in the front but it got worse, I tried softer tires all around and it helped a little but still the rear end had a tendency to slip out at mid-to-high speeds in the corners. I changed the shock positions and made them more vertical which helped a little but the rear still slides. Any suggestions?

Oh yeah huh, I have yellow springs and sways all around, I'm running the shocks in the second hole from the top front and rear, not sure what weight oil in the shocks, I'm about to rebuild them anyway, Takeoff CS-22s all around, anything else? This is the setup I ended up with at the end of the day. Any help?

EDIT: I'm also running the one way in the front, diff in the rear.

I usually use white on front and yellow or blue on the rear.

Camber 1.5 front, 2 rear, maximum rear toe in (i.e. 3.5) and 1 toe out on front.

Yellow or blue front anti roll bar on front, blue on rear.

Should be better like that.

you're welcome. I also suggest you check the droop. I don't remember my value for front, but the wishbones are a bit higher than horizontal, and on the rear it's about 4 from the bottom of the wishbone on a droop gauge.

John,

The car looks awesome with those blue turnbuckles. I assume that those are from the 415.

John,

How do you like those Kinetix batts? Have you compared them with other brands?
