Ran my 415 indoor tonight and it was amazing, 0.5 of a second per lap faster than my Evo 3 was on the same tyres. I will post the setup tomorrow only had a few small irritating problems, one of which was a right bitch but more on that tomorrow. Rick

Well ran the 415 again today. But only got through 2 qualifiers before it started to ran as I set my car down for the 3 qualifier. Sucks but oh well. My setup is posted a few pages back. But this week I changed my body from the Alfa 2.0 to the Mazda6. Seems to me the Mazda might have a tad less turn-in than the Alfa.. but feels more stable overall. I also changed from Yellow spring to White spring after practice. My TQ time was better by 1 second. But last week I had a faster fast lap. Oh well. Not enough run time today to tell too much. So I guess the quest goes on next weekend.

Over all I like the Mazda feel and the feel of the 415. Oh and I also ran different tires. Hmmm and I also ran the belts "clipped". The drive train "seemed" alittle free'r. But so far, I don't notice a difference between a stock belt vs. one that is "every other tooth"...... yet. But it held up and the car was still smooth and quiet. Plus the belts seem to have very slightly less tension. I may need to go one click more front and rear.

I may test some more this week... so we'll see. Here is the car....

Here is my 415 setup for indoor as promised,

Front
White springs,
400wt tamiya oil,
3 Hole pistons,
Stock shock location,
Yellow roll bar,
0 Kickup,
5mm of spacers under inner camber link,
C1 and C2 set so the writing is the correct way up,
Steering links in the rear hole,
1.5 deg of camber,
1 deg toe out.

Rear
White springs,
400wt tamiya oil,
3 Hole pistons,
Shocks stood right up on the tower,
Yellow roll bar,
0 Spacers under the piviot blocks (flat to the chassis),
A block FR,
C block RR,
0 spacers under inner camber link,
New 1 deg toe in uprights used 0.7mm spacer used under the ball in std position (outermost),

Electrics
Trinity monster stock running 34/102
LRP quantum 2,
Futaba 9550 servo,
LRP phazer RX,

Shell
Protoform Vectra

Tires
Pit wets! But D20 with std inserts work just as well.

Only problem i had was now that the front track is wider when i tagged a corner with the wheel shooting upwards the UJ would drop out of the drive cup. When i looked under full compression on the front you can see the UJ pin come out! Rick

Hi guys, ran the 415 yesterday and am figuring out a setup. The car carries A LOT of corner speed and is a "different kind of fast" compared to the Evo3. It still needs some work but it's getting close.

Here's a picture of BrianM's car:

Yes they are. I took the pictures because someone here inquired about how we installed our electronics.

I will agree with that, the car flows very well and it feels so different to the evo. Does not feel fast but then you look at the times and its really shifting, just does not feel like it is as its easy to drive! Rick

I have been running mine indoor with 2 oneways, tbh i am just so used to it by now i dont notice it. At tracks where i would have gone to and fitted a diff straight away i dont have the option on the 415 and its great. Even running the evo everywhere now with a one way. Rick

Unless there is no grip at all, I always runned my 414 with the one way. It's 0.5 second quicker on a lap with the one way IMO.

PS : I'll try to come to Snetterton, but I need to get a ride from someone...
