Ed, I'm have a brain fart and cant figure out what the bold means, please explain.

Thanks

Hehe, it was late, and not well worded.

Basically, using the v2/v1 combo, i use five screws in the bottom plate (4 rear & 1 furthest forward), whilst in the top deck, its just mounted with the front screw in the v1 centre piece. I don't use the two at the back of the motor mount.

HiH

Questions?? More Questions?????

Ok after vigorous reserching, I've found that the IDR is 2.0. Since I will be running 17.5 blinky, the FDR should be between 3.8-4.2.

In terms of running 17.5 blinky:

Which is better 48p or 64p?
Best starting FDR for sm-med indoor carpet track? (80x40)
What difference would be noticed between two different gear combo's that create the same FDR or Rollout?

The last time I ran onroad there were a few guys that would just flat out walk away from everyone else. Pretty much everyone was running tekins in blinky mode with either Ballistics or Trinity motors.

Thanks in advance

64p is where you want to look for carpet. It is smoother and quieter. I'd start with around a 4.0 FDR and check temps, aiming for about 150-160*F. Bigger pinion more more temp, smaller for less temp. As far as differences on gear combos, if you're looking for a more direct feel, smaller pinion with bigger spur. If you're looking to make it more smooth, bigger pinion with a smaller spur.

I know you can use the Xceed 733lightweight gear diff parts to achieve a similar thing, but they are impossible to get hold of anymore, so this is a good option, IMO.

Recap- VBC Diff, Dogbones and blades, Xray cross joint, Serpent Axles.

Sorry for the stupid questions ... but what is the X-Ray cross joint?

I tested 4-hole pistons yesterday together with little harder springs and oil. It felt good but the lap times was the same as with 3-hole. Just a different feeling. On really high grip I think 4-hole could be better.

I think I will test another gear diff than Serpent. On track I get no difference between thick or thin oil...

Last weekend I was testing some diff and shock settings on a mid to high grip carpet.

V2 Serpent diff with Xceed plastic 4 gears. Works really smooth. First with 1000 cst of throttle the rear was slightly washing out then changed to 2000 cst and the problem was gone now I could push the car.

Tried the RCM with one O-ring (Ehrbar mod) I couldn't get them to 0 rebound no matter what. The car was fast but a little unpredictable or inconsistent as you wish.

I have a set of TRFs and with these the car just felt right. Consistent and fast. Not so much on one lap but in the distance it was a real improvement!

Now i'm thinking to trie the T-shox from Myrberg. Has some one tried them yet?

Regards

I use the two original big gears and the four small Xceed ones! As it was mentioned a couple of times before by some other drivers.

Default s411 qtns

Hey ya’all I was wondering if s411 owners opinions on the Team Edition versus the original s411 I have?

Anyone using the Derlin driveshaft adapters for front spool, what is its purpose?

I have the “soft” rear A-arms, are most people upgrading them to “medium” or “hard” parts?

Thanks. ya'all. This car was the only one that made the a-main this weekend at my local carpet track the rest were T4 XRAYS

I know a few guys that drive an S411. My friend uses an XRAY gear diff in his(I sold him an extra one that I had). They just need to be shimmed a little.
Thanks Lock,
this diff would be a direct change on my S411TE ?
Just take to Stock diff off and use this one from CRC ?
