I've checked my steering endpoints and they're both equal. I even tryed dialing out my steering to an EPA of 60% for the left side and it still happens. My droop is set perfectly, my shocks are all the same length. I'm puzzled about what is causing this. Can anyone give me some advice as to what things I can look into to see what my problem is. I'm running a front spool and it even did the same thing when I had a diff up front. Thanks for the help.

look for a bent hidgepin or something, check your toeblocks are sitting right and make sure theres nothing binding....

A bent hingepin? That would be the pins that hold the a arms to the toeblocks right? Now that you mention it I did notice that I had a pin that was bent slightly but I thought nothing of it. I suppose this would cause my suspension to hang up at times and cause my a arms not to actuate correctly. Hm... This make sense. Thanks surrealmaterial for the help. You kick ass! I'll post my findings.

I had the same problem with losing my screw and bushing in the bottom of my c hub. This usually means that you c hubs have taken a beating and are on their last leg. At least that was my experience. To get the screw to stay in without coming out wrap the end of the screw with teflon tape about 1/8 inch wide. Install screw and do not overtighten. This worked for me while I was waiting for new c hubs to come in the mail. About the ride heighth...Check your shock lengths. The shock end cup shouldn't be showing any threads. Also, make sure you shocks are all the same length with some calipers.

Also, don't use a titanium screw. Just use a black steel screw. I always found that the Ti ones seemed to back out, and strip the threads easier. However, the black steel ones seem to grip the plastic betterm and don't back out.

Ive had first hand experience of a bent hingepin, in short it binds up the wishbone so it wont pivot freely. If you're lucky you can get a hammer to it to flatten it out if you're short of parts, if not get it replaced

Hi mac
Maybe you should try a TRF416 front belt they are longer than the TRF415 front belts.

How about their lenghts of trf416 compare of Cyclone ones which is 510mm?
And i wish to try Xray foam spec rear belt, is 186mm, worth it?
Or maybe Cyclone rear belt with 189mm?

I had a front left hinge pin that was bent and a front rear toe block that was bent about .050 on the left side. This explains why I was spinning out on left turns only.
Thanks for your help surrealmaterial!!!! I guess the carpet season on a short track took its toll on my car. I've learned alot! Thanks to all!

For the loose ti screw I use Loctite 642. It works like a charm and never over tighten screws in plastic. Sometimes a small amount of silicone works perfectly as well.

Last weekend we went to the first race of the season. Unfortunately it got cancelled on teh second day due to heavy rain. So I tried to seal as best as I can in a short time and try to run the car so People can see that these things can actually run fast in rain as well. It is a short movie and the box I made leaked so I got cut out about in 2 mins...

Enjoy...

ive been told the ta05 set fits the trf415msxx, so I dont see any reason why it wouldnt fit the mre too, its just the next model up with a few more alloy parts and a slightly different chassis
