Tamiyadriver : I used Tobee's lightweight version of the Tamiya F201 universal. Their not even close

Not entirely sure if its a Tobee issue or the F201 shaft not being compatiable with the 415 Outdrive.

I might wait for the TB EVO4 to be realeased and get the 46mm blue lightweight drive shafts from that.

yup, its prolly a compatibilty issure between them. i recently bought a Tuned F201 kit, and the bones will fit just like the originals... but those Evo4's should do the trick nicely...

So, the Tamiya F201 dogbones fit the 415 axles?

Can you 2x check for me?

I thought the Tobee ones would be an identical copy of the original Tamiya's. Doesnt make any sense how Tobee can market a part for F201 which wont even fit the car.

There is quite a substantial difference between the F201 unversial and the 415 version.

Square F201 Universal :



Square 415 Axle :



Would be awesome if you could try putting the F201 Drive Shaft onto the 415 Axle for me. Just need verification before ordering again

ill have to try it this evening... i am off to race in a bit, and the F201 is all assembled. ill pop it out as soon as i can to verify. you might pm "suradaj". as im pretty sure he posted a while back that it fit perfectly.
i think the difference is that each manufacturer may use its own pivot assy, although the complete unit will fit the 201. i know that looking at the R3/R2, TRF cars, Yokomo, etc. the pivots are all different sizes.

ill holler back when i confirm.

front one way : yes

Upper Arm : high rc - no spacers under innner link. No spacers under blocks

Tires: cs 22 - med insert

Rear:

shock mounting position : outer holes top and bottom
uptravel : 2.5mm
Anti-squat: one .7mm spacers
Upper Arm : 4mm spacers under inside link
Toe in: 1 degree upright - with 2.5 total toe (a/d).
Camber: -2
what number shock oil did you use for the front/back shocks?

would this setup be useful for stock racing with rubber on carpet?

i'm using the kit setup, and find the car understeering while cornering. i guess i need to setup the car for more steering

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

i would assume that it would work on rubber tires with a stock motor, but since i dont own a 415 i wouldn't trust me on that 100%.

my appologizes if this is a repeat question, i could not find this info through the seach.

when people refer to 8 degree caster, does that mean that the front left and right "c" hubs are switch as opposed to the normal setting?

and is there any need to add spacers to the suspension blocks to achieve this 8 degrees?

i'm a newbie when it comes to setups so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Depends on the servo you have. If you have a good metal gear servo you would probably be okay. Worst case you'd strip a internal gear which could probably replaced inexpensively.
