Just talked to Joel. Sun and cloud at the race. But the track itself was never realy warm or hot. There was nobody practice today due to rain. Weather report say sun for tomorrow, but that does not help Joel or Viktor, as there plane leave early tomorrow morning.

Hello Ed,
If you look closely you will see he's using 4mm hex in the rear w/1.0mm spacer and I think it's a 5mm hex up front w/no spacer.

This will give a 188mm front trackwidth and 189mm in the rear with the suspension blocks they used.

the weather was ok on saturday and sunday with the occasional sun break, but for the most part cloudy and cold in the morning, and a slight drizzle on sunday before the 3rd round of mains....., but the track really never got warm to benifit the tires, and there were alot of complaints about the tire selection as well, but Rheinhard will be tough to beat, not one mistake through all qualifications and finals, also Orion was testing a new endbell that worked very well, and also testing with 6x1 motors, also they had a radar gun, and Marc was pulling 45 MPH in the strait....

I know they dremmel the hub down 2.0mm so the ballstud will be at the same height as stock w/spacers.
I think the suspension pin height is the same as stock, but the upper camberlink will be slightly shorter, maybe 1.5-2mm

You will need to redrill the pin hole with a 2.6mm drill bit and use the axles from the "old" 415

I always use this modification, my car just feels better with it!!
Hey Eirik,

I use the front HPI steering knuckles for the same reason in terms of axel support and bearing size. I considered the rear at one point, but felt it was too much work to get to fit right. This is also why I like to old suspension because of the bigger bearings etc, but with a weight penalty.

Hello Martin!!

It's really not that much work, took me about 25 minutes

You should really try it, my car was really good after I did this and there is less maintainance

I really like the old suspension as well, but only for carpet with rubbers!
On asphalt the LW suspension seems to carry more cornerspeed and it does not work the tires so hard (less overheating)
This is what I have found with my car anyway....

Not 100% sure, but I think B-A front and XB-D in the rear.
This is what I have been using lately and it works really good!!

Yes, with todays hot motors, 3deg. rear toe inn is very good!!
Also, I have found when using a spool, running 3deg just works better, more steering off power and very stable on power!!
