I have saw many different settings for carpet but there are in double side...hard or soft...which is the best for carpet? I mean the springs and shocks...like you, you use a harder setting. But, like the upper post, he use the yellow springs...I can not get it...
I use dual one-ways (front and centre), as I mainly race stock, and for me, it's the fastest way.

I have to say the spring thing has been pretty much a constant on my cars on carpet since the first 415 came out.... I've tried other springs (namely harder Xray ones) and always end up back on the White/Blue combination.

I have found the short arms to be faster everywhere, so I would go with them

A long enough time if you put the AW grease and clean/regrease regularly. I can do about 10 meetings on front steel dogbones and rear alloy ones. That's with a 3.5T.

Default msxx diffs

Hi Guys,

I've kinda lost track of this thread and the developments with the car.

Is to possible to buy a complete rear diff set and front diff set for the msxx rather than buy all the individual parts?

Cheers.

Yes, you can. Someone here can supply the part numbers. I'm seriously considering another 415. Possibly the MSXX Rheinhard Edition. Just waiting to see what the 416 has to offer on the track.

Hi Ed
If you see this Q, please give me your answer....
I found your setup sheet post in the previous pages.
I got the carpet setting which the date is 11-03-07.
So, I get two Q for help...
1. The foam bushing in the shock is "0", is that means there nothing in the chamber wright? Why not put the little red foam in? too fast response or??

2. If you use the short LWT sus., why not use the x and E at the rear? any concern or jut control the wild? and what is the degree of rear toe?

Thank you Sir!!!

In answer to the Q's

1) Your correct, that means no foam bushings in the top. I've always found it helps to smooth the shock out, and just seems to work well on carpet. It was a tip given to me by David Spashett.

2) X/E on the rear gives 2.5deg of rear toe-in. I'm actually running B/E on the rear now, as I've found that using the wider rear blocks tends to help free the rear end of the car up on corner exit, although it does seem to loose a bit of mid corner rotation.

HiH

Thanks Ed!!!
You really help me alot~~~
But there is one thing still confused me...
According to your answer, the X/E which you used are the older type of the TB EVO4? (higher the hole)
or the type of 415MS, MSX and TB EVO5? (lower the hole)
I mean...there was no "1" at the fornt like "1D" or "1E" in your setting.
Sorry!!! I really confuse about that!!!

Thanks~~~

Ahh, that old chesnut...

I tend to ignore the Evo4 blocks when I'm writing setup sheets. So when I say X/E, I really mean 1X/1E. Me just being a little lazy really

Hey guys,

My MSX seems to be very noisy at low speed.....could it be the bearings? spur gear? any solutions?

Cheers

Hi Ed
I copyed your setting on my 415 and TB5...it really did a goog job!!!
All the unuaual motion before was gone!!!
Most is stable and a little aggressive!!
The fist time feeled "controlable" on carpet....
So I added anti-roll bares medium at front and soft at rear...made it more aggressive.

And...how you measure your "droop" and "down stop"?
I just want to align...I use the HUDY setup kit to measure at the outside pin of arms. The droop...use a ruler...

Anyway...Thanks!!!
