Take a look!

Hey

Nice job

What is advantage with that new steering system vs old one?

I cannot be sure, but it looks like it makes it stronger/more responsive and with less play in it.

Compared to the normal steering systems the car flex is a bit higher.
Quite similar to the 416 without the steering post screw.

I test the car next WE on a race meeting here in Austria.

Dont know if there will be a improvement in laptimes, but in my opinion there is a improvment of the look of the car

I have the 415msxx (not the mre) and get jealous when I see the 416, so I think on that theory, I am already 2/10ths a lap slower!!!

Asphalt or carpet?

For both:
  • Red springs / 55wt. oil on front
  • Yellow springs / 45 wt. oil (this is a taste thing, 45 wt. - 55 wt. depending) on back
  • Fixed center layshaft (no center one-way)

For asphalt:

I'm usually fighting nasty on-power understeer on asphalt
  • Front shocks laid all the way down
  • 0.5 deg front camber
  • 1 deg front toe-out
  • Stand up rear shocks depending on grip levels


For carpet:

Car works pretty well on rug
  • Front shocks 3rd hole in from outside
  • 0 deg front camber
  • 0.5 deg front toe-out
  • Rear shocks 2nd hole from outside


I don't actually have the setup sheets in front of me right now so I'm punting a bit, but these should be good enough to get started. Please report back with improvements!

Are you looking for plastic or aluminum rear uprights? Also, are you talking about the 6mm wheel hexes? I did not know they made a 7mm wheel hex. I'll have to look around after midnight, I should be finished with my exams by then.
