I remember the post...


It said to heat the bulkhead slightly then tap out the bearing with a dowel.

The bearings are force-fitted into the bulkheads (?)

what are the effects if i raise the link position on bulkheads on the rear?.
what about the front... ?
in the rear i usually use links angled downwords towords the chasis (
nospacers on bulkhead) and i will gain neg camber if the suspension is compressed.

i also experimented with parallel links in relation to lower A arms(added
spacer on bulkheads) ... and then i went to adding more spacers on the
bulkhead till the pivotal point on the bulkhead is much higher compared to
the one on the hubs...

i find that by doing so the rear end felt glued to the ground and i felt
much more confident with the car overall .... ( WIERD eh)
and by studying surikan's setting i figured that his cam- links must have
been set the same way or is it not ???
and what about the front end ?? what effect does it have ?

my answer: raising the rear or front "top inner mount point" will give you a lower roll center. where as lowing this link will give you a higher roll center.

the trick is to get the RC (roll center) of the car close to the chassis CG (center of gravity). the closer the the RC to the CG the less body roll will be exhibited , car will then corner "flat", allowing it to obtain and maintain good corner speed.

i suggest you grab a copy of XXX Main's Chassis Setup Guide by Martin Crisp, the guide covers all aspects of chassis setup inclusing roll center, and camber link adjustments. i have found the guide to be a very valuable tool...

on my 414worlds i do run extra spacing on the rear link and the result is more grip, i have also got rid of the front end anti dive (as in kit, for smooth tracks only), and added some kick up, this settles the car into corners, but gave me a little more steering on mid-exit. (depends on track as per usual). no front sway bar either.

i run modified classes, if running stock setup may be a little different...

kickup is obtained by making the forward most "front" A-arm holder higher than the rearward front A-arm holder. (if it's lower you have anti dive.)

the angle of the hinge pins determines how easily weight is transfered, the angles resulting in anti dive resist weight to the front. (think of how anti squat works for the rear).

ok....
caster = antidive =kickup just that its effected by diff parts of the chasis ...

caster is the overall antidive and kickup u have .........
antidive is from the knuckles/hubs or upper arm mounting( on xray and corally i think )
and kickup is on the lower A-arm holders ............

thats what i tot in relation of full scale cars ...

Default plastic outdrives

I just got a 414M2 and wondering about the durability of the plastic outdrives. Do they last long? Is this something that needs to be upgraded. Thanks.
