I think it might mean that they drop a driver though sadly.

hopefully Jilles stays - he is a good setup guy and an excellent ambassador.

most definitely.

it would either take bulk cash, the best car or the car with potential to be the best for the current WC to jump ship.

probably a combination of all of the above. you can definitely expect some good R&D to occur.

pretty big boon for Muchmore as well.

Maybe after 10 yrs in the shadow of RV, it was time for a change ?
Not always about $

Not going to any easier running against MR33 with the same equipment

^^ I don't disagree - every chance there was some kind of disagreement over #1 status or what ever.

very much out of the frying pan into the fire in terms of internal competition though.

two "superstars", who both have a penchant for, umm, outbursts of emotion, will be potentially difficult to manage.

might be a bit like Senna & Prost at Mclaren perhaps!

Wonder if this means Naoto will be boosting their offroad program again after Tamiya dropped Lee Martin.

Looks great.

Two questions:
1. did you try thinner oil? (450) if so what was the effect.
2. How much rebound (mm) did you set during assembly of the damper?

Thanks
Marton

Based on the wire size and coils, they are probably around 14lbs/in. Definitely soft. Yellow seems close to an HPI Silver. All this is assuming they are the same springs that came with the 418.

They are not the same springs that came with the 418

I made that mistake. Bought a set of the springs (42278) to make full sets and they are completely different to the "bonus parts" that came with the 418

They should be the same (At least I hope so as the springs I used were the ones I had, not he separately purchased ones) I have a chart that a friend has done for the Tamiya springs I will post a link when I get in tonight.

These springs are based on the Hard / Medium and soft kit springs that were in the 418 and TB evo kits.
