I ended up running 2 top decks to stiffen it all up ,
Ps all depends on the type of carpet ur running on

Second from the outside on the front and second from the inside on the rear and yes it was very aggressive.

Hey Phil , Ive put all the 416 parts on the car and it feels gooood .
The way i see it with the short arms,knuckles,uprights,suspension blocks and ackerman spacers all 416 with the 10x5 bearings in the right places (instead of the 9x5's) i should see a bit of a difference.

Have a great easter

I have used the same settings with 35 shore front, 32 rear foams and it's waaay too aggressive on the steering. (grip rolling) I am going to get some 40 or 37 and see how they fair...

What alternative turnbuckle ends can I use as my standard ones have too much slop? I have tried HPI and Schumacher and these are too tight on the balls.

Thanks

Tim, just replace them with new tamiya ones.

To remove some of the slop currently, take some packaging plastic, remove the ball cup and then place the plastic over the ball joint. Now pop the cup back on, and it'll cut a perfect circle out of the plastic. If the joints are particularly sloppy, you may want to try that a few times.

The only way that is happening is if you get a bitty design tray.

HiH
Ed
You should think about adding a how to drive better section to your web pages. I have read every bit of info you have posted yet I don't have any wins yet. I think your info is flawed
........or maybe the nut behind the wheel is to blame

Keep up the good work and my win is coming We have the Reedy warm up race this weekend and I hope to do well but my main thing will be to have FUN!!!!!!
