For the people with the lightweigh suspension, did you notice any or much difference with this hopup?

simply put, yup
I found that the car has a bit more grip, but transitions (flicks from side to side) much better, probably due to the lower amount of unsprung mass.

On another note, tonight I tried out the new shell, handles very similar to the Losi Skoda I used before, if anything was more stable, with similar grip. However this was with the curved (low d/force) wing, and I did seem to find that it could step out unexpectidly going into the turns. For the final I switched to the straight (high d/force) wing, and there was a deffient improvement, the car was way more stable into the turn, and this showed that I was able to take 2nd in Stock A, having qualified 4th. I comfortably had more pace in the final than the guy who qualified 2nd.

Anyway, hope that's of use to people

I posted some pics of the Pro4 spindle setup for the LW suspension on the EvoIV thread for those that are interested. I also have a pic of a 28mm foam tire and the clearance that it has with the Pro4 spindle and 6mm wheel hexes.

Default Quick Picture!

Hi Guys,

Just a quick picture of the two contenders in the shoot-out review I'm going to be writing in the near future - TRF415 v Xray T1-FK

Cheers, Mark.

Ok I've been reading on here and the Evo4 thread and I'm confused. Can you run just the Pro4 steering blocks and 6mm clamping hubs on the stock 415 suspension and drive train or do I need the LW suspension and the TC3 CVDs and Pro4 axles? Carpet season is soon about to open up and need to get the parts to run foams.

Hey guys,
Quick one from me, just posting the set-up from racing tonight. Running rubber on carpert indoors. I went back to running the one-ways today, after having run the spool for the last few weeks, really struggled with huge amounts of steering to begin with, but dialled most of it out by the end of the night.

Running on carpet again tomorrow, gonna try out running the shocks in similar postions to how they ran them at the german mods nats (thanks again for the info V12), with the lower positions on the outside of the 2 hole side of the arm. I've been informed that the carpet I'm racing on tomorrow has a higher grip level than the one I was racing on today, so need to stiffen up a bit.

Regards
Ed
