But I guess u can give it a go.
thanks for that, no harm in trying them.

Another question, I have a set of split suspension blocks with 1A/1XA marked on them that on used on the rear front.
I wish to get 2 degree rear toe as running 21.5, so shouldn;t need 3 degree as the faster cars run. I have 1E block on the rear, so what way should the letters face to get the 2 degrees. Should the 1A face towards the centre line or towards the outside.

Most setup I see they use 1XA in rear front. So derfore XA letter should face towards the center line

That's a common misconception actually, both springs are linear. The reason most people use HPI is because they increase side bite and make the car more aggressive. I've never seen a good explanation for why this is even when they have been measured, but it's true when compared to tamiya and xray springs.

For 21.5 or stock you'll probably want at pink or gold to maintain good corner speed, silver are quite soft & generally best for mod

I regularly run 21.5 in my 416X and have found pink up front with silver at the back works pretty well. The car is more responsive with this combination. I have been running a slightly heavier oil (500) than most, but will try something a little lighter for the next meet.

Have been doing some testing lately with different spring sets in 17.5 and have found the car to be nicest on silver all round and 400 mm oil. Pink in front made my car feel very nervous for my liking.

thanks for all the comments....I've been running a TA05 for the past 6 months so changing to the 416x will be interesting.

I'll need to invest in some springs as suggested and see what works for me.

I've had my TA05 for a few years, then I got the 416X. I couldn't believe how much better the 416 was, after driving it for less than a minute. I was running lap times I never could before. And if I was a much better driver, I know this car would be placing every race.

500k works ok on small twisty tracks, on a larger track a spool is still better as the car is more stable.

Maybe this is a double post but to all that didn't read it or are interested in this just a small tip.
To any one who is tired removing the top deck when changing the spurgear this is a solution for the 416,416WE and 416X
The 3 racing part 416-02/LB replaces the motormount and the centre pulley axle post on the right side of the chassis.
For the 416 and 416WE there arn't any mod's needed.
For the 416X you need to remove a small amount of the rear side of the motormount(diffside) and the centre pulley post.
Sad part about this is that you can only use 2 holes on the motormount for your topdeck
It allows you to quickly change spurgears without removing the top deck tho.
If you don't want to do the mod on the motormount and center pulley stay you can only use the gear adaptor.
You do need to make a small spacer where you 840 bearing is tho.

regards Roy
