like mentioned, i dont run much foam ever, but from what i do know, you will probably need a much stiffer spring that Tamiya will offer. i would look for some Associated springs, they will fit on your TRF shocks fine. dont remember the actual color springs, but look in the area of 27 lb front, 20 rear. oil, try 70-f, 40-r.

and seems lke the few foam setups i have seen were using some swaybars, as well...

thats probably where i would start... your results might vary, lol.

I have been using it since carpet season started, all I can say is that I like it alot. I've got it set up to where I can drive it. Only draw back is parts are getting harder to find.

Yes they do. I have to clean my car from racing this past week, but I get some pics of my 414Hybrid. You will have to go with longer CV axle shafts. My car has a 414 chassis, bulkheads, steering rack, with 415 Lite weight suspension and 416 front & rear shock towers and finish it off with 416 front hubs.
Dave

I will post some pics when I get the car clean

and if you don't mind I would need details (parts wise) and does it handles better. That would be my next project.

tnx
