What's up Diff-abuser? Had another session with the 415 yesterday. I played with rear toe angles and I didn't like anything below 2.5 degrees. I tried 2.0 and even 1.5, but the car felt very washy, really bad in the dogleg hehe.

I broke my first 415 part yesterday as well, I stripped the rear belt clean of all it's teeth. wOOt!

Just got back from the Tamiya track for 4WD testing...

The car feels pushy and roll a lot like a boat... it feels like it stop at the mid corner. when i try to push harder, the car will sometime push, sometime oversteer... not very predictable... feels like it has a mind of its own..

What should I do to take away the push, yet being stable?

My setup is:
Front: white spring, 40wt oil. Speedtech spool. Takeoff27 tires.

Rear: blue spring, 40wt oil, Evo3 1deg rear hub, B/D suspension braces, Takeoff 27 tires.

everything else is stock setting....

i'm running a Reedy 19T, gear 78/29.

Hi guys!

Well, thats the same Problem a friend had day ago. I gave him this setup and it runs much better:

Front:
-60wt oil
-3 holes
-Associated Gold Spring
-Point 2 on the shock tower
-(VERY IMPORTANT) A-Blocks
- -1,5

Rear:

-50wt
-3holes
-Associated Gold Spring
-Point 4 on the shock tower
-A-Block and B-Block and A-Block behind the motor
- -1,5

Thats it!

I hope I can help you. Let me know if it work's!

Regards
Manuel

Rod sounds about the same here my rear belt is holding up but the front has got a few skips here and there. It shows up on heavy braking with the spool.

Toe is about the same. Did you holler at Fred to ship up a A bridge?

I've been running my belt at 2 clicks f/r for a long while up until I started running some low winds. Then they started skipping so I went to 3 f/r but the belts were already showing a lot of wear so it was natural that they'd give up the ghost.

Next rebuild with new belts, I'll start with 3 f/r and go from there.

Same here, I started off with 2 clicks f/r, feels ok in 19t but when I started running mod you can definitely feel the skip, specially from a dead stop. Adjusted it to 3 clicks. I am assuming that the belt might have more stress on a spool, specially the front belt.

Dan d'man - you coming up for the Cloverdale race? Should be lots of fun.

I've only used the car for stock so I run it pretty lose. I have 0 in front and 1 in the back. The drivetrain is so free I can spin it for few seconds like a shaft car!
