My conversion kit arrived today. I ordered the soft version. If you look at it, you'll see, that the weave is indeed less dense, but in my case it also is "the other way around", don't know how to describe it better...

BTW, when I talked to Toni Reinhard, he told me that he also prefers the soft chassis, but Marc seems to like the hard chassis better. Marc also uses the 417X bulkheads, well...

Get some of the T4 springs, 2.5, 2.7, 2.3-2.6 and 2.5-2.8 The T-Shox short springs are also good

So I am used to using blocks to set droop. I dont see block set ups on any sheets. What is a good starting point for bumpy and loose with this car (V5) droop wise?

I hav a setup on my 417x that im pretty happy with at the moment. The one thing i would like from the car is a little more mid corner steering while on power or neutral power. Can anyone suggest some settings that i can play around with To achieve this. I dont mind loosing a little rear end grip

What front blocks are you running? And your droop front and rear?
You could add some front arm sweep, less front droop (higher number on blocks) more rear droop (lower number on blocks) or lower the front roll center

I run 1c front front, 1c split front rear. Droop is 6 front 5 rear.

Think il give the roll centre a go 1st as thats nice and quick to do.

Given your current droop I'd try the roll center first, and definately try the 1b split front rear block. If your running the steering brace id take that off too.

So I am installing the new raceberry kit and was wondering if anyone is having any issues with pinion / spur gear mixes. I am trying to run a 50 t pinion with 101 spur gear and I cannot because the pinion gear hits the new support peice in front of the motor mount. Any suggestions?

Run smaller spurs and pinions to get the same gearing.

Yes, you need a smaller spur. A repackaged Panaracer 96T is what Yokomo and HPI sell.

With the 96T spur, the biggest pinion you can fit is 49T which should give you and FDR of 3.62:1, that should be about close to max gearing on any track anyway.
