Yes I would have to agree I have my own concerns about it and in the spirit of the competion I think it is a bad move. Also there are not still avaible here in Australia and the is another good reason not to have it this year.

Thanks Diffuser

Hi Guys,

How would one go about reducing low speed steering?
The car is mint at high speed but its reacting/changing direction
far too quickly at low speed for our low grip surface. Makes the car
feel nervous and inconsistant.

Oh, also... a couple of questions regarding the suspension conversion kit.

1, Can you still run a ball-diff in the front? The Hybrid Yokomo/Tamiya Ball diff required the use of 46mm UJ's. With the suspension arms being longer... will the 46mm UJ's still be an option?

2, Do the Tamiya Aluminum Rear Uprights still fit?

Cheers Guys
Andrew

For the steering question, move the tie rod to the hole toward the back on the steering knuckle. It wont make the car as quick.

O

Thats my attempt of making a diagram. Pretend that those are the two holes on the steering knuckle where you attch the steering tie rods.

Not sure about the answer to Q1 Lycan, might work, but as I haven't run a diff in the car, I couldn't tell you.

Q2, you don't actually need to use the Alu hub's with the new suspension set, as you get graphite 1 deg rear hubs in the kit anyway.

Hope it helps
Ed

regarding the suspension conversion kit

1. In the suspension kit there are complete 46mm UJs included.
Front is with steel bones, rear is with blue aluminium bones.
Also there are some different oneway outdrives included.

2. No, the new wheel axles are shorter also different sized wheel bearings are used so the aluminum rear uprights wont fit.
But the included Rear uprights are also 1 toe in and the same style with vertical ballstuds.

I have no idea what your setup currently is so it's hard to make a recommendation. Judging from your post you have the Alum. rear uprights - these reduce your rear toe by one degree. If you're finding the car nervous at low speed trying replacing the C Toe Block that is stock on the front of the rear arms and change it to a B Toe Block. This will put you back to the stock Toe In on the rear and should remove the nervous feeling.

Try to put Steering Expo on your servo (-60%). It's from Mark Reinardt. Incredible results.
Hope it helps.

if you have to much steering off power you can just dial out some steering exponetial it will also give better feel on the car and a little better traction as well.

Hey TRF racer, my name is John Harrison. I'm gonna be there on sat for practice, you? I'll be running my 415 in 19t, with normal susp. Where are you staying? I need to book a B+B soon. Are you driving yourself? If so would it be possible to get a lift from the B+B (that is if your staying in one) to the track, as I'm getting dropped off sat and picked up mon. who needs backup cars, when you own a tamiya eh??
