I have a question about the suspension blocks.

I understand the combination's effect track width and rear toe, but what I don't get is how they effect front toe.

I see setups with different front blocks, but since you adjust toe with the turnbuckles, what is the advantage of using different size suspension blocks in the front?

On the front the different suspension blocks adjust track width just like the back, but you can also adjust the sweep (angle) of the front arms. The sweep of the arms gives you another tuning option. I am not sure what the sweep does for the handling of the car.

Arm sweep is essentially inboard toe for the front. Increasing it usually gives the car more steering, and IMO makes the front end more stable.

I just picked up a 415 mre and it came with the 4mm chassis but does not look like it will line up correctly. The guy I got the car from bought it a whiile back and it came with the deal. He never ran the car so never tried to see if this plate would work. If anyone has any info on this chassis let me know!

if i remember right the 4mm chassis was actually set up like the OG 415, so the toe block spacing is a little different. other than that, i think it should still work. you will only want the 4mm with foam tho, not the rubber we are running.

Dont you think your mod is a little to radical?

I dont know how heavy that Lipo is, but with my Robitronic 5000 40C Lipo if i fit it like you the motor side is much heavier then the battery side.

I also dont think that the handling of th car is realy good after your mod.

But try it, and let us know !

Happy new Year everybody !

Could someone please explain why on earth you would want additional gear drives on both diffs along with a belt drive transfer to the front. That's a good way to loose 20% efficiency on the front end

PS: That is a terrible Photoshop job. I could do better in 5 minutes. They even colored the servo wire...
