You can put the old 415 arms on the new MSX, works very well on carpet...

The old suspension works really good on asphalt, on some tracks it's even better than the LW suspension

Stein/Eirik, did you guys run wider suspension block to compensate for the shorter arms or did you run the car narrower as well?

Cheers,

Vincent

I use 1D-1XB in the rear and 1B-1A in the front on asphalt, for carpet I use 1D-1D in the front.

6mm hexes front and rear, + 1mm shims in the front....

I normally run my car at 189mm in the front and rear.
Sometimes 187mm in the front to get more steering.

Well, I get always good setups from Eirik...
I run very similar, but lately I have used 1D-1XA (2.5 degree) in the rear...

Don't use a servo saver myself either.
If you look closely, the front driveshafts look like MIP style CVD's.. my guess they are the TiR Worlds ones.

anyway, some more...

Default servo arm

The servo arm in those pics looks like it has a metal band around the servo spline.Any info on what kind of arm that is?Thanks,Mario.

I think that servo arm is a Sanwa one.

Hey Ed, Curious...does it feel more precise? Reduce slop? Why take the chance? Thx.

Slightly less slop and if you hit anything with the Tamiya saver it shifts the trim of the car even with the slightest of taps.... . With no saver there is no chance of that really happening.
