Sort of stock setup. If there really is such a thing :-)
At least stock Springs. Feels to soft up front.
On carpet with sorex 28. Dont remember what the body is called. Thought I'd try the front Springs from the evo6, as I believe they are a bit stiffer.

Hey guys,

I have tested 419. (missed 418, but have v5). I found the car well performing with stock springs, 450 oil on carpet (medium grip) better than with Yokomo springs (pink/blue). Wheelbase was adjusted, since it was too long for me. front 1mm, rear 1.5mm spacers for the blocks helped a lot. I had a lot of steering, but car&myself was not so fast.
Next race I will lower RC and using B-B block in front and narrower rear for sure. wheel: LRP CPX.

I am not a top-driver... just sharing experience.

Stock setup is precisely per kit build, always a good place to start
Stiffer springs may make the car even more agressive

Yes, I know.
But my manual says nothing about rideheight. And meassuring downstop at the setscrew is highly inaccurate. So my setup is stock as far as camber, cambergain, wb, ackerman, track, toe, damper-angle, caster etc goes. Droop, downstop and rideheight was my tuningtools today. Couldnt get it quite right, so next up is different Springs.

But please get the tips and tricks coming. I really have to learn this.
Im pretty sure that your input and my trial and error will make it brilliant in the end :-)

RedBullFixx is the man when it comes to setup knowledge and resources.

If you would like, I can do some videos on how to set ride height and various methods of measuring droop. Also, give you a few setup tricks and so on.

Someone needs to get the measurements going for rc crew chief!

I assume the inner camber link locations are also a little more outboard than the 418?

Has the location of the steering posts altered with respect to the arms? Should photograph the two chassis side by side and compare.

Got mine finished. Coming from the 418 and looking forward to taking it out on Thursday. I set this car up the exact same way as my 418 to start at that point. Had to make the rear holes a little bigger because the bodies were already cut for the 418.

Here are a few pics.

Looks great Todd.

You changed the stock springs out ? Did you try the stock x gear springs yet ?

Thanks. I have not. I was running the Yokomo pink and blue in the 418 so i stayed with that as a base. I may give them a go Thursday.
