For some reason, the track looks a lot smaller than it actually is in the vids...

John Thanks
I won the club race...I but I was having problem in the mid turn and it like almost dead stop on off power...
i tried to loosing up the rear ,so to get the car can flow around the corner faster ....
I copy Jilles set up ( ETS)
except instead I';m using rear block 1XA/1C ( less toe in)
I took out the shim spacer @ rear upper arm to zero shim for quicker react ( roll center)
I lay the rear shock ,one hole more to inner..

How'd all that work for you . Mid corner I probably would have gone for an ackerman change. A wee bit more .

They don't fit, end of.
Pulleys are bigger 37/18, and the layshaft is further back in the car vs the 415, so the front is longer, and the rear shorter.

Default Blue aluminum turnbuckle?

I notice that this car comes with blue aluminum turnbuckles. when you're building the car, do U guys use them or do U guys just toss them and replace them with the titanium ones ?

the long ones that are used for the steering... i didnt even bother using those. i grabbed the steel/alum. reinforced ones that tamiya has for their 501x buggy.

Yeah, even the camber links can get banged around and bend a little, but those are much less trouble than the steering tie rods. TRF now sells really nice blue titanium ones, but they are $14-16 a pair form some of the better sellers.

rdvtg-hobbies on eBay is one of the best for these. Cheap shipping and gets here under a week.

Of course Tamiya had to make the adjuster a different size so you need a special wrench too. And for some reason they forgot to mark these new turnbuckles, so pay close attention to which side has the reverse thread when installing them...

Wow! That was quick. So those blue alum turnbuckles are strong enough for F/R camber link? Have U broke them yet?

I did this on day 1, and it's been fine. Even the titanium steering rods will bend on occasion, so grab some extra.
