Finished mine a few days back...





Done a few meetings now and the kit setup is actually pretty good! Not sure what to change... Would like to try my Xray springs because i think its a touch soft, only the plastic things that hold them on at the bottom are too small. Can you buy bigger ones?

Which things should i be looking to adjust that make the biggest changes?

Thanks

Hey Gee, you mean that thing really works??? I have seen that Bearing Blaster advertised for years, but I assumed that it was like the "As Seen On TV" products.

Do you remove the shields then clean, or just drop the bearings in and blast away?

Thanks!

Is there anything that you think it could improve on? I personally run Jilles groskamps base outdoor setup. i am also racing on large uk outdoor tracks. the only thing i have changed is i run hpi blue and silver springs and my rear link is on the inside hole on the rear hub as my local track is quite bumpy. Other than that its fairly awesome.

Default Setup

Hi all,

I've posted my latest 416X/10.5 set-up on Ed's site, it's from a large-ish interclub event held last weekend at my home track, which is low-to-med grip asphalt. The car was really dialed and I managed 2nd overall and fastest lap of the event.

http://www.thard.co.uk/viewtopic.php...4&p=1169#p1169

Compared to the set-up from my original 416 I am running a narrower front blocks (C/C vs D/D) and the same shock oil all around rather than 500/400. When I tried my old set-up on the X it understeered terribly, so the changes they have made to increase rear traction have obviously worked

Yes, and that combination works very well. That is what we are running now.

So every thing else off the WE will fit ok then?

Also this will move the battery back a bit is this correct?

Not too sure, ive ran on 2 different carpet tracks so far and it was a touch skittish on the back to start with so i took the rear roll bar off and it was pretty good! Do the HPI springs work with the standard kit parts? Becuase as i said earlier (which no one answered ) the Xray springs wont fit

[QUOTE]

Yep the HPI springs fit fine. They are slightly larger than the Tamiya springs so may look a little loose, but the majority of people are running them with all the standard parts and no issues at all.

Never tried Xray springs, and don't really intend to - 99.9999% of the time its Tamiya springs on Carpet and HPI springs on tarmac.

Default Set up ??????

Would anybody happen to have a food starting set-up for a 416 we for a small-medium track with low traction. I am running rubber tires.

Front toe?
Front droop?
Front camber?
Front ride height?

Rear camber?
Rear droop?
Rear ride height?

Need opinions?
