Thanks Franko, I will definitely give those changes a shot. Thats 60 wt. front/45 wt. rear right (I'm using Schumacher fluid). I'm going thru the a little now.

Despite people thinking softer has more grip soft springs also struggle with load. Too soft will see too much weight transfer and the tyres will not be able to coop. Its always about when you need the grip not what end.

I am really impressed with the build so far, top notch. 1 question. When building the diff, do you put the small washers behind the 2 gears? It did not show it in the instructions and they were included.

Thanks

I changed over... and it was the best thing I have done. No breakages, no premature wear issues, handles the power of boosted 5.5 and has a wider sweet spot than the Mi4CX. Do It!

GREAT first session with the S411 this past weekend. Starting with a baseline set-up that I put together based on what has worked on my previous car and I was able to get within a couple tenths of the pace on the 2nd lap I put on the car. Worked on some other set-up changes through the day and WOW does this car react to changes well. Thinking it was only going to be a practice day - I was hoping to spend the day getting the car dialed-in at our local track, however, turned out to be a race day so didn't get the time behind the wheel I was hoping for. Still.... the car is fast! Can't wait to get some more time on it as I am already at the same pace I was at with a car that I've been racing all season long. I LOVE all the steering that this car has - and I've noticed that the car is actually pretty stable and carries corner speed. Very happy that I made the switch - suits my driving style well. I'm looking forward to some great things with this chassis.

if your having trouble with taily rear end you can either stand your shocks up on the rear or pull the 1mm spacers out to lower the rear roll centre a little, what springs oil are you running ?
