You could also try this setup Carpet Wars Rd6 2006 setup.
It's one I've used to pretty good effect indoors, managed a few A finals at the carpet wars with it now, and most people whoever tried it have good things to say about it I have dropped back to only 0.5mm under the suspension blocks, rather than 1mm, and a couple of other changes (A/E rear blocks, and 45/40wt oil in the shocks), but thats a fairly good base to start with.

I'm going to be running my 416 for the first time this weekend, and lending the 415 to another racer.... I'll get his feedback on it as well
After this weekend though, looks like the MRE will be dropping back to backup/wet car, it's served me well over the last year and a bit, as did the previous cars too...

It's the hub that comes standard with the MRE. If you look on the rear hubs, you should see it's marked H0. There are other hubs avaliable marked as 0.
They provide the same level of toe-in, but the H0 hubs are 0.5mm lower.
This aids rear traction, and also changes the droop and rear roll centre slightly.

you can only fit the 18 teeth pully to the MRE centershaft http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/popup_ima...D=8999&image=0
, but you wont find a belt that fits 100%
the closest is the x-Ray T2 rear belt and HB Cyclon front belt. but the rear belt is very loose.

I havent tried the 416 belt, but they are totally different lenght, bulk heads are farther on front and closer on rear.

the smoothest solution - to my humble opinion - is the 35T pully fittet with 12x 3mm balls, using the 416/501x Diff plates, and with 17T pully(3 racing) on MRE belt. This gives a smooth diff with a IR of 2.055 - the same as the 416

The new rear belt for the xray t008 is 183mm and a perfect fit for the 18/37 pullies.

so to run the 18/37 the combo would be:
T2 008 rear
HB cyclone front

That would be correct, just make sure you get the right xray belt (183mm) as they also have a 186mm one for the t08.

If your running a spool, maybe try B/A up front if you want some more front end. Otherwise, should be fine.
If your running stock, certainly try the one-way, you'll be faster for sure. For 19t, thats kind of the cross over point from one-way to spool IMO, whereas as mod, most top guys seem to be running spools indoors.

Well, I guess the setup is half decent, as the guys who tried my 415 this evening seems very eager to make the car his own!
