I do convert Jilles setup from LRP Masters into PDF, here is the document! Let me know in case of any mistake!

For those who are looking for setups, there is Ed website or this page as alternative.

Jilles, will it be possible to get some info about you TRF guys used during WC in Bangkok?

I have tried to keep up in the beginning on the TRF 416 topic but there are so many posts I get a little confused.

Nevertheless I try to get more involved in the forum again or maybe if you guys think it's a good idea I can start my own thread?

Attached is my set-up from the LRP race yesterday.

I take it that was the STCC? Might have to break mine out at some point outdoors this year....I'm getting the itch already
Thanks chap... really was at a bit of a loss... my front end seemed soft enough... maybe I will try velcro on the tyres next time hehehehe

Have you girls seen this? I know it's steel cups, but maybe you can use it for back up....

Hello everyone,

Thanks for all your comments yesterday.

I just started a new thread called: "ask" Jilles Groskamp Tamiya 416(WE) / SpeedPassion motors.

I will try to help all of you as good as I can!

There is no official Tamiya part, maybe someone else makes one?! But why?

Googling would have been faster than posting... 4 deg!

Also, Marc is quite reknowned for not noting down his setups

Any of the ones you find, will tend to be taken by other people at the races, and then passed on...

HiH
Ed
Had a chat with David Jun of TRF US and one of the Japanese rep from Tamiya during the KLGP race here in Malaysia regarding the setups, the rep promised to update the website more frequently with the setups..... hopefully...

And it's great to see Jilles here again....

Vesa Yli posted once that the V-Dezign deck was slightly stiffer than the stock 416 one. I've been using the V-Dezign one for ages because it was the first available but keep meaning to order a genuine WE one to see if there is much of a difference

P.s. for you guys with ageing 416s, check your spur gear spindle for wear underneath the pulleys. Mine are sloppy as and visibly worn!
