Hi!

In Germany we use stock chassis and sometimes 2.25 chassis, including top teamdriver Marc Fischer.

We tested on last Weekend and for me the 2.5 chassis is currently the best choice.

Marc used 2.5 and 2.25 and the softer one had a bit more steering, maybe a bit more overall grip. lap times was the same!

depends on the springs, you have :P .. and surely on the track characteristics (low, med, or high grip - technical, big or something else)

BUT try 3.0 Xray front springs, 1.2mm rear bar, and 2.5mm rear camber wicked fast setup.

How about giving Marc a poke and get him to come on here and post some setups. The only one I see on Petit comes up blank. I would like to see his setup from the just past ETS race and what his observations where at that race.

I see by the pics of his car he had black springs on his car, where they Corally, Xray or something else? And what weight where they?

He isn't using any forum etc

On his car he used the new MR33 Ride Springs, but he haven't a fixed setup on the ets - tried a bit around on every run.

His Setup was very similar to his outdoor setup from the german nationals, the s411 is very good - no big changes needed for different permanent tracks. We are very happy about the car performance

Only exception was the ETS race, because Marc has no experience with ETS carpet in combination with the new Ride Indoor Tires - this results in traction roll and this results in a car that was really difficult to drive. He still needs some testing time with this tires

On this weekend i try the new double joints, looking real cool

He tested ride silver and red - and yokomo springs like ronald.

oil he tested a range from 400 to 600, but im not 100% sure now... pistons are stock 3-hole.

Diff-Oil he tested a bit around, too...

So you see why i said he haven't used a fixed setup because he tried on every run different settings...

What shims/washers are people using to remove the play on the steering and where abouts are you putting them ?

Hi !

Glue in all bearings on the steering - this helps. And on the manual it shows to put 0.3mm shims on the steering crank - but i used on my first s411 0.1mm and on my second 0.2mm - it depends on how the pre glued bearings are glued theyre small differences.

on the c-hubs, maybe you can put a 0.1mm shim - for the horizontal c-hub play...

If you look at the instructions, it shows two .3 spacers, I doubled those and then two .3 spacers on the long arms. I use the shims from old brushed motors. If the od of the washer is too big it will drag on the outer race of the bearing, the motor washers are just right for this. I found that the fit of the bearing into the pockets was fine but the slop is in the bearing to mount.

I tried to eliminate the washers but when I did that the drag link would actually touch the one long arm and create bind issues, this would only happen when the car was under load, it always looked proper when holding up and eye balling it.

I also use a .1 shim on the upper bushing of the c-hub, between the busing and the c-hub itself. I think Tamiya sell these. (Sorry no part number.)
