The motors I been running is the Monster and with this 102/29 gearing gives me plenty of punch.(I am going to try different gearing this weekend)Almost the same with the top end/ But then the tracks I been racing on are tight tracks. Can't wait to go to Thailand to race there!

Thanks for the info KilRuf!

I just picked up a 415 a couple of days ago. I have a questions about the rear toe blocks... Is there anyway I can get 2 degree of rear toe? The optional blocks seem to add toe, so I kept it at the stock setting. The other blocks have pirvots closer together, which to me would make the rear toe increase.

Thanks in advance - can't wait to try this car!

Lol, that's assuming that you're filming the lead group right? hehe I'll try my best but don't expect too much The open mod field is full of some heavy hitters.

rtypec,
Are you noticeably faster w/ the 415 compared to your Evo3?

It's hard for me to say, I am still working on a setup with a spool and I am sure I can knock off more than a few tenths from my lap times. However, when I first ran the car with a one-way it felt that it carried much more corner speed than my Evo3 and out of the box, it was even if not faster than the Evo3.

Another driver at the Tamiya track who has driven the Evo3 for some time is now going faster than he ever has with the 415.

It also handles setup changes well. You notice the changes you make on track and can adjust accordingly to suit your needs.

i have to agree with rod about the set up changes.. the car reacts very well. i havent done much testing at the Tamiya track.. ive been racing mine in 19T at the various parking lot races here.. but it does very well to any set up changes i throw at it. cant wait to finally run the car again this sat.

I'll probably try different gearing this weekend too on the 415. But I'm also experimenting with 1 toe on each side. Basically I run the optional rear 1 hubs with 2 D Blocks. Car is plenty fast down the straight. Just tricky getting it just right in the turns. But I too agree, the car handles changes very good and noticable. I can easily feel the difference just adding a 1mm shim under the rear camber link. Once again, it's a very nice car!

my set ups are for 19T with CS-27 take off tires on low-med to medium traction parking lot tracks.

i havent found a good set up yet for high bite asphalt tracks yet. rod is the best bet for that. ill PM you the parking lot track set up.. see if you like it. ill PM you tonight

That would be cool, but not likely- friends want to pit with their friends (including me, luckly one of those also has a 415 )
