Maybe this is an updated version with the new LW suspension right in the box. Or its an 415 Surikarn edition.

For the Reedy Race, they were using the new low friction belts, the belt tensioner, heat sink beam, heatsink motor mount, solid layshaft pulley and a spool along with the LW suspension.

It would be nice if the car was more compatabile with 28mm foams.

Greetings everyone,

Does anyone have Marc R's German outdoor nationals setup that they can post or PM me?

I found it interesting that he was using only 1.5 degrees of rear toe.

6800 yen is roughly 550$$. Not bad for what you get.

Anybody see the spool coming out from TIR. Team Orion has it on the home page. Looks pretty trick. It would be kind of nice to have 4 wheel brakes.

I have been using the LW suspension for 5 races or so now and I am thinking about going back to the old suspension. The new arms and uprights are just too fragile. These are things I've never broke before and now they are breaking on a regular basis...

Which arms are you breaking the most..?? the front or rear... and where are you breaking them at.?? around the sus block pins.?

Broke the rear arms 3 times around the suspension shaft; the rear upright twice where it's narrow; and the screw pin in front once.

Not exactly big crashes either. The old set survived much bigger crashes before. The worst ever happened was bending the alumnium block. Even that only happened when I had spacers under the blocks. Once I switched to the evo3 blocks I no longer had problems.

I hear ya on the EVO3/4 sus blocks thats what I have switched to on my 415.. I got tired of using the spacers and haveing the block slightly bend on a light crash... besides my track that I race at is not to forgiving with the boards
