-changed the rear toe in block to 3.5
-swaped out the springs to MR33 springs Purple front and red rear. Much better driving feeling with those.
-1.2 mm rear sway bar.
-450W shock oil and Xceed 2000 Gear diff oil two gear setup.
-Ride hight is 5mm front and 5,5 rear and droop 6 front and 5 rear.
the car is on rails now only thing i am doing to tune the grip with now is traction additive
but going to play with the linkage setup from now on and out
Nice to see that you like the S411, as you are sort of guilty for me getting the it
When I first saw your car and had a look at it, I put high up on my wish list (even above the T3'12 that I was considering). I liked the "simplicity" of the steering rack/ Ackerman and the separate suspension blocks both front and rear, much like what I am used to on my buggies!
I actually managed to build and set up the car (built in about 7 hrs start to end) and was actually on my way over to the track to test it last Wednesday when I got the call, and had to turn around and rush of for work. It will be about a week more before I get the chance to give it a go on the track.
Where did you get the Hara or MR33 spring from (rcmarket, tonisport etc)?
You should not by any chance have a set-up sheet ready with your last findings, as it seems to be a good starting point for our track?
