Stein, your track is quite big and open. You can take advanatge of the extra power, however at our track it is much tighter and not nearly as open. You can see in the pic below...

I have tried the one-way vs the spool and came to the conclusion they are just as quick as one another, only difference being consistency. Over a 5-min run I am much faster with a spool, not to mention racing against someone is much easier, allowing for overtaking maneuvers that require brakes. For your track I would probably switch to a oneway but at our track it is not an advantage.

I have had a few PM's from people who were confused about the location of the "vent hole" on my shocks so I decided to take a picture of one. Hopefully this will clarify things.

Sorry guys, I meant spur gear. 32 tooth pinion would fry a 4 turn motor for sure.

I used to run a 78t spur in 5 cell mod with a 3.5. I think you could go up to 80 or more if you need to

Where are you going to run? mod is more or less dead here at club level

I could see it changing maybe .1mm or so if you went from 0 to 5 degrees of camber, but since most camber changes are 1 degree difference at the most, you would never notice it.

You can try

My Whalan set up is on Ed's site - my car was very good at the state titles so that should be a good place to start

right guys, I've just uploaded the new spring data to the website, thanks to Linger for the values.

Link here... http://www.thard.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=33

And as a project for this weekend... I'm going to attempt to draw up a roll centre calculator for the 416, such as I did for the 415 (attached below). Ahh, lazy weekend before christmas

Cheers
Ed
