If you are running foams i'd suggest you go onto the tamiya USA website any download Marc R's Vegas set-up, click here. Hope that helps.

Marc's car @ the DHI was the 415MS w/ std susp arms/hubs & 415 MRE drivetrain (front & ctr 1-ways) based on that picture

old 415 chassis is a lot stiffer for carpet and the ta04 arms and hubs work much more consistantly than the LW plus bigger hub bearing keep the corner speed up. and easier to fit 28mm foam on without clearance issues.

i have started running a diff on indoor carpet rubber. I am running the Reinhard lrp indoor setup on it i like the diff for the smooth turn in on high speed corners and the feel it has but I get a lot of of power under steer on the hairpin bends do i have to change my aproach to the bend or do i need to try a tighter diff. Note i don't like lots of steering I just want it to turn it a bit more off power.

The reason I use the HPI front hubs is that it gives a tad more ackermann than the tamiya hubs (that, and the fact that I cba changing bearings all the time, lol). More initial steering and a bit less mid corner steering.

I tried raising the blocks before too but with the car being too soft I didn't like it. Then I put the Tech Racing top deck, which stiffened the car up, and then the car's handling improved instantaneously. I used the car with the blocks flat on the chassis but was having grip roll issues, which i resolved by raising the blocks.

I got Ed to raise his blocks by 1mm all round on his Evo 5 last sunday for the last final and he'd dropped nearly half a second off his laptimes, said the car was a lot better.
Using the rear hole on the spindle makes the car allot easier to drive, but it gave me less cornerspeed and slower laptimes!
I seriously think that the old steering would be better, we will see....

I will try raising the susp. blocks again and see what happens!

Cheers mister,
Eirik

Did the MS have the LW suspension? Then what was the difference between the original 415 and the 415 MS? Marc's car just looks like a 415 with the addition of the aluminum rear diff, wide pitch pulleys, center one-way pulley and the blue shocks.

I also noticed in the different pictures he has both white and black belts.

I don't remember the MS coming with the LW arms. They come as an option.

The belt belts could be the MRE belts?

Yup, MS was the first car to come with the LWT suspension. The chassis was 2.5mm and had re-drilled suspension mount block holes (closer together). The orginal car used 48.5 mm hinge pins, the MS onwards 46mm.
Thats why the old style suspension is such a tight fit on the MS versions onwards.

That's exactly what it is, a std 415 with just an updated drivetrain. If you notice the hinge pins are not the Ti ones, simply because they don't exist in 48.5mm...
