What droop are you running?
For carpet, I run 6 F and 4 R (measured off a gauge). I currently have the Short arms on the car too, seem to work well, although I haven't done a back to back with the long ones, so can't really comment.

I'm running 5F and 4R on a gauge. I'll have a chance to do some back-to-back testing with the ackerman and short arms on Tue night. Should be interesting.

Whats the part number for the new spool that comes on the MRE? I'm using the 36t pulleys on my MSX. And will it fit?

Had some spare time earlier today and decided to put the short arms in and rebuild the CVDs. I'm very keen to try this setup in a couple of days time. With D-D blocks at the front, X-E blocks at the rear and std hexes with 1mm shims, the car comes to 187mm.

with rubbers or foam?
Personally, the 2.5mm chassis is a little flexible for rubber carpet work, but not enough to worry too much about. For foams, the 4mm chassis is probably best.

4mm then... or try and convince BMI to make one for the 415

Relating to my earlier post, some pics to explain it better.

First two, shows the screws on both cars that I measured the distance between (rear two, steering posts, front two, suspension block).
Second two, show the ackerman spacers (red arrow), and wheelbase spacers (yellow arrow).

What I've done is assume all other measurements are equal, so effectively by adding thoose three variables together, I can figure out exactly the difference in ackerman between the two. A large total number means that the longitudinal difference between inner and outer l joint is larger... effectively putting the steering link at a greater angle.

Because the spacings are different on the two cars, the ackerman setting is different, which affects the way the car turns. I'm trying to get my MRE to handle as well as the evo on the rug, so hence why I've added spacers.

Is there a Tamiya Diff for the 415 and if so what is the p/n. Or am I stuck just using a spool for TCS racing. Also what is the part number for the locked center pulley?

Thanks

Yes there are holes for the MSX steering so you can run it with the MSX top deck if you want.

Ed. I notice at you use those cone washers your top deck. Did you feel at tweak broblem is gone after that modification?

I made order M3 countersink washers and i`ll try those also with my MRE.
