I also switched to the red sway bars. Where do you guys start when you are tuning?
The car is so tunable it is a little unnerving.
The reason that most of them were not running the supports was more than likely the chassis was to stiff for that days tracktion conditions ....
just some more food for thought

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know where I can get the reedy race "new" evo iv inspired lightweight suspension for the 415? I live in the United Kingdom but I don't have a problem with ordering from overseas. I also looking for some of the other hop-ups recently released.

Thanks

Alan

Well I have finally joined the club, car arrived yesterday morning, and I spent pretty much the whole night putting it together (well 4am to be honest, I just couldn't put it down un-finished ). All I can say is wow, it's an awesome piece of kit.

I'm so impressed with it, everything is of brilliant quality, and went together so easily. Even the shocks didn't take very long to get super-smooth (there something of a nemisis for me... ). Can't wait to get it on the track, and start playing with the setup.

I have a few questions though.

My drivetrain doesn't feel that free, I have set the front and rear tensioner's at 1 and 2 clicks tighter respectivly, and I also flushed out all the bearings of their greese, and lightly re-oiled them.
Is this because the belts and bearings are new and a little tight? Or should I just go back and re-do the bearings again?
To be honest the bearings spin ok-free, but i had better with my yokomo, then again I had removed the inside shields from them.

Also, so far i have built it with the stock setup, bar two points. 1) I have change the shock oil for 40wt all round, 2) I placed 0.7mm spacers under the front wishbone brace. Anything else that is a deffiente to adjust straight off (I also have the front A brace, but no alu rear hubs unfortuantly ). I did notice something in the de-structions about swapping one of the spacers on the steering for a smoother feel, has anyone done this? And if so was it a good/bad change?

Thanks in advance

Ed

If you are talking about the spacers in the steering, I tried it and it seemed to have way too much play. After I switched it to the normal spacers, it seemed fine. I would not recommend the larger spacer - it doesn't seem to to anything except make the plate move up and down more...

Well at the moment, I'm going to be running both Mod and Stock in it, but it's first race is going to be with the stock.

I'll plug a motor in this evening and get the drive train spining for a while, hopefully that'll free it up a little.

Whats a good belt tnesion setting for stock? as I have now (1 on front, 2 on rear), or should I go 2/2 or 1/1?

EDIT - Actually thinking about this mabe Ishould just get it running around the track first, and then see if the belt skips.

I deffiently try and get to bedworth at some point, be cool to meet other 415ers

Regards
Ed

Hey Tarnjit,

Hope you sort your transmitter out sumtime, be a shame to have broken it fully, i was well pleased with my car at the weekend, shame for me driving like a retard in the 2nd leg final. Was running in 3rd then just started making mistakes as i relaxed too much. If i hadnt of i would have finished 2nd or 3rd overall, instead i had to settle for 4th. Bit of a shame but fastest non sponsored driver so not too dissapointed.

Love to come to bedworth as last time there i had only had the car for a week and now ive got to grips with it i may be able to give you bit more of a challenge. I need to rebuild my diff first use those diff seals, thanks by the way.

Who was the guy pitting next to you with the 415, how did he do?

rob

I just received, some new 415 parts from r10, ordered them on friday afternoon, so super impressive. Only one problemo, I ordered the Evo III reinforced diff joint set, but to my surprise the normal ta04 diff rings don't fit...Doh! So does anyone have the part number for the evo 3 diff rings?

cheers

hi Rob

it was me

did ok qualified 10th in B finished 3rd, the looser belts seemed great, dunno what was up with me, car just felt dog-slow, handled very nicely though, back to 19t tomorrow will see what the belts are like then. guess i learned alot about the car thios weekend, so that kinda makes up fot the below average result.
