Correct about the arms.
The reason why we not use the screw in the topdeck is that it flexes more up front which gives more steering. Sometimes the car tweaks little more using the screw.
Between B-C the timing is less so less power but more runtime. Between A-B is more timing more power but less runtime. 3.5 SP Motors always use between B-C when using LRP speedo, power program 3 or 4 is best.
Yes, just grease the pin of the drive-shaft and the blade on the outside before putting it in the diff outdrive.
Well this set-up is basic set-up. With D-D and 1mm spacer the car is easy to drive with medium steering and not too much responsive on the steering. At the worlds we ran C-C to get maximum steering.
For low grip track try softer springs, sometimes we also cut the topdeck to get more flex in the chassis.
Evo 5 arm is the short arm, and it comes standard with the 416WE.
The shock-shaft with 0 rebound will not go down when you push it in. So when you built your shocks you oush the shockshaft all the way up and close the cap.
61.5mm is from the very top till the very bottom of the shockholders.
We all ran a 3.5 Motor as it was "only" 5 cells. Our motors got around 80 degrees. I know the LRP motors get little hotter but that isn't a problem when it gets 100 degree. SP motors have bigger holes in the can which makes it run cooler and have better sound!
Nice to hear from you! Hope all is well?
Yes, we drilled the hole in the top cap, and yes we ran 700 oil at the worlds.
Two topdecks will make it I think too stiff but you can try it. In Vegas we ran a 3mm chassis with 2.5mm topdeck which was made only for this race.
With making your shock with 0 rebound the shockshaft always goes little bit back in, it's almost impossible to make it without going back in. Using an older bladder you might have the perfect shock with 0 rebound.
I quess this motor has metal bearings? Little oil is never bad!
