Well today was the first time I've run them. Only real incident I had today was hitting a corner dot during practice and cartwheeling down the straight and almost into the highway (smooth parking lot track). So I can't comment too much on durability. I know other things will break now if I do clip a corner. But I'm willing to deal with it. Chubs suck because they arent' interchangeable left to right. But arms and spindles are. Anyways, so far so good.

Hi RCMarket, this is kilruf/mike mc. I've been ordering alot from ya lately. Do you know when the 416 spool will arrive? I currently use the 415 spool. But I find it may off center itself at times. But only very slightly. Also, how do I check back orders from your website? Or how do I change them? Email me if you can at [email protected] Thanks...

Oh yeah, there is!
Thanks for your reply.
In my opinion they should release also alluminium wheel axle and 44mm steel drive shaft, as i remember in last year, a lot of 415 guy broke front blue shaft in races.

I just installed my 3Racing c-hubs yesterday too. They fit nice. I used about 1.2mm of shims instead of the 1mm shim in the instructions. Can't wait to give the car a try with the short arms!!

They came with instructions??? haha. I think one side I have shimmed 1.1mm and the other side is just 1mm.

RCMarket, thanks for the reply. I'm going to go back and look through my records. I'll email you if I find anything out. Thanks again for the quick reply.

I meant the original 416 instructions say to put in a 1mm shim.

Can someone tell me how the 416 kit shock oil compares to Mugen shock oil?

Got back from a good day's racing today, running 10.5 indoors. Pretty much Victors setup from the DHI, apart from a couple of extra changes to try and get some more steering (45wt rear oil, 2.5mm inner shims under the rear link, rear shocks in hole 4, 1mm rear axle spacer). Car was very good at the start of the day, but as the traction came up I was struggling to get the front end tucked in tight. This may have more to do with my limited experience of having to drive with a bit of brake (the track was pretty tight...), than any inherent setup deficite, but I have a few things to try next time out.

I think some softer shock oil all round (45/40), and maybe a stiffer rear roll bar or less rear toe-in may help to free the car up when the grip comes up.

Having said that, car was very safe and easy to drive.... and the extra grunt of the 10.5 over a 27t was much more enjoyable Only broke one part all day...suprisingly, it was a C-hub, and didn't realise for a bit, opps!! :smile

Plus I was happily faster with the 416 versus my old 415 (admitdly in the hands of another driver)... although a large amount of that deficite is probably down to him still running a 1-way, where I'm certain a spool is faster.

Overall though, probably had the most fun at a meeting for a long time :... and now back to stock () for the next round of Carpet wars...improvements to the setup for stock to be tested then

Regards
Ed

P.S. Setups attached... plus an improved blank sheet

Hy Ed!

I want to know how the Damperrebound (the thing that Jilles posted), the 25% you have in your sheet, is noticable?

And whats then a good basic for tarmac?, 50-75% ??

Thanks in advance, blueman
