Hi Guys,

I have tried the Aspahalt standard set-up and found that the front has too much grip compared to the rear, what do you suggest to calm down the front end ?

thanks,

Either stand the front shocks up, or lay the rear shocks down. You could also try playing about with spring combinations, harder on the front or softer on the back.

Try the Vegas rubber & the Reedy race asia, they are for rubber on high grip carpet.

Folks, just found out that the rear shock tower of TRF415MS (not MSX) is the same as the Cyclone rear shock tower. Only different is the body post mount is a bit lower. At least I can recycle one part from my 415MS

Saw these few pages of building tips from the Nov RC magazine from Jp. Tho I only have a pro4 and wanting a cyclone but broke , I hope these few pages may become helpful for people who have the car. Tho its in jap all the procedures are fairly simple to understand. ^^)b

A friend of mine had the same problem. He put a HPI Gold spring instead of silver on the front and the car was near perfect.
