Ladies...

Technical side?! I've read they say it doesn't run well with foam? So should I slap on a thicker bottom deck or get myself some rubber?!

My 415 has got a sleeper plank on the bottom... It hasn't wooped any corraly yet, but it runs well with foam

I think the 416 will be the best stock car ever... when I get it

My little padone... hehehe

I never said the corally will whip any thing are vice versa......
Its dangerous when ppl start talking like that...

I will say the corally isnt the best car out there... but results speak...
Check Sage's results in stock... that speaks for itself....

i was just trying to guide your efforts from the TRAP i also fell into ....

but hey... u da expert on tamiya ...heheheheh
Lets leave the whipping and trash talk for the track lol....

in any case.... when u guy are ordering your 416's... let me know


I might get one 2 hehehehehe just for fun.....

corally is a beautiful car if you can look past the fragile hubs and knuckles, replace them with 100$ of corallalum, then you still have very fragile a-arms

twice this season ive crashed into the back of a corally with my 416we and broke a rear arm on the corally both times, while my 416 with only a couple changes has not broken yet even thou it has taken some pretty serious hits

and althou i havnt run big power in it it adds a full lap in a five min race running in gt silver can

what changes did you make to get the car more robust? i will be racing a 4.5t motor and would like to have the car as resilient as possible?

Hey guys need some setup advice. I'm basically running a box stock Worlds Edition 416 with an Orion 17.5 on rubber tyres (low grip asphalt track).
The turning radius seem quite large when im on power and it makes it really hard to drive fast. What areas should I be looking into.

Thanks in advance ,
Steve

Its understeering. Put softer springs up front or harder in the back

Great! Glad it worked out for you. I know the pegs were about the right width for the TA05 pulleys but I wasnt sure if the 416 pulleys were the same. How did you shave them? Dremel?
