Steering should be exactly the same as the 418 I believe. I used a .15 shim instead of the stock .1. I tried doubling on on the .1 shims to make .2 but it starts binding up if you torque down the screw.

With the .15 shim, it is just right. Hardly any up/down movement, but the bellcranks move freely. The shim set I bought is a 3racing set from TQRC. I'll need to dig up the part number for the set.

I'm in the same boat, still waiting for a couple more things. Christmas came early but I must resist...

With what Kind of camber do you race on carpet?

Positive or Negative camber?

Always negative. In the region of -1.5, then tweak to your liking.

Thank you, because I hardly think Marc and Viktor in their setup sheet specifying the correct camber.

I think they just consider that there is no other option but negative, so no point wasting ink on a minus sign.

Try and drive with 2deg +VE and just watch what happens to front end grip (and tyre wear pattern)

@kentech

Where or how do you do the carbon weights as well as your CF on the transponder? I have done some basic CF sticker sheet from eBay but never looks like that.
