the Tamiya one with 1 toe in or the Square one with 0.5 toe in?
Which one is better?

V12.. i dont think its a matter of which is better. its just fine tuning. i have the tamiya 1 deg one. just to keep the car TCS legal. im sure the square one is just as high in quality, just different tuning options.

I use to run the Tamiya 1 deg ones...but the square ones have less slop in the bearing area.... But now I use the EVO4 sus conversion on the 415 now... much better

I would have to imagine that it really depends what track you are on and how much or how little rear toe you need.

Where i race there are probably 5 or 6 TRF415s around and I'm the only person running alum. rear uprights (Tamiya ones). Everyone else is running with the stock ones and happy with them.

Thanks guys.

JDM_DOHC_SiR
What do you think is better with the EVO4 suspension?
Do you think its better in general or on large tracks only?

As there are no spares from the EVO4 suspension available currently you will have a problem when anything breaks.
Do you think the new parts are strong?

Did you have problems with any wheels? Some guys say not every wheel/rim will work with the new suspension because of the shorter wheelaxles.
Usually Im running zero offset wheels from Proline or Team Orion.

Actually the EVO4 sus works quite well on a small high grip technical track and as for getting spare parts.....??? I have a bunch of spares that I just picked up 2 days ago ...so if I break something...I will have plenty for my EVO4 and my 415... but I have yet to break anything on the 415w/the EVO4 sus on it...the C-hubs are very strong!!!..now as far as wheels go...if you don`t use the red 1mm spacers with the EVO4 sus conversion some wheels will rub... but it`s also the same for my EVO4

Dave
Thanks for the informations.
Seems I shouldnt buy an aluminium rear hub for the old suspension but should go straight to the new suspension.

I would imagine the lightweight are the ceramic diff balls, no?

What are the advantages or disadvantages between having ceramic compared to carbide?

Ceramic is self lubricating and should be lighter (tungsten-carbide is very heavy/dense).
