opposite at the front.try white springs at back and blue at front.
does this car have as much understeer as the evo3 sl?
TBH my Evo 3 feels far more alive and agile than my 415 although i would say once i have the 415 setup as well sorted as the evo is it will be far faster. Rick

Rick
so what is faster for you currently? EVO3?

I have to say the EVO3 is working pretty good for me. Did win all of the last four 27T stock races including today with the EVO.
Im watching the 415 but Im waiting until price drops.

Default Spool Report Part II

Yes, steve will be carrying them. once i give my report to steve, im sure he'll order a whole bunch.

Tell me how did you get to be one of the prototype testers???
You think Ian will be able to get one?? ;-)

As for the top shaft. I noticed on Dan's that the pully farthest from the spur slipped inside the bulkhead a little, and left a witness mark from rubbing.I was thinking I would make a spacer to fit between the pulley / spur gear mount, and the bearings
mr troy.. my only suggestion is to anodize it blue! like i said before, the spool worked great. i checked my car last night, no wear anywhere, even after hitting the boards at socal.

i was lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time, and steve asked me to prototype. ill run this coming sunday at a parking lot race and let you know. my set up (like rod's) pushed a bit at socal, but it was like a bat out of hell coming out. car felt good overall. ill yank it after next sun and hand it over to ian to prototype, steve didnt have enough to give to me and ian. so we have to share

btw mine(center pulley) is tucked inside (bulkhead) also. i have pictures. will post soon.

jeff, too late the bulkhead has already lost its blue anodization. oh well. i had to sand it down anyways to make room for the two center pulleys.

overall, the car's drivetrain is set up great right now. its reedy race ready!

Chris you did that differently than I had thought. I was thinking of putting the pulleys back to back. Can you send me a pic of the car, straight down from the top? Want to see how the belt looks to the front.

By the way still haven't built mine yet, as it is undergoing a transformation. I hope it will be something people want to look at down there at Reedy.

As for the Blue anodizing. I could, but the black coating is a a heat treating process that is availible to me. If it were anodized, I'm not sure it would be as durable.

Dohh... Troy... thanks for thinking of me... hehehe, don't worry, the proto spool is in good hands with Chris on the throttle. He'll surely be testing the durability side of it... j/k Hebiki....

Thats what I heard yesterday the SD diffs are working. But I have no 415 yet for trying.
Maybe it was a mix-up with the old car.

what's all included in the kit? and what other option/tuning parts are needed? springs, swaybars sets, toe-in blocks?
