Ed,

When you put C/A block in front, it's 1° toe out but in your setup it's written 0°toe. Maybe you means 0° with D/D, but you prefer C/A without changing the turnbuckle lenght (so you have 1° toe out).
I hope you understand my english?

Bye,

Hugo

Hi, I can see where the confusion is there.

The outboard toe (set by the steering link) is 0deg, This is the value on the sheet.
Your correct to note that yes, as I do have have the C/A blocks there is 1deg of inboard toe-out (ie at the hinge pin), but by adjusting the turnbuckle I can reatain 0deg outboard toe (my prefered setting).

I still get the advantage of running the inboard toe however, as that comes when the suspension is moving, and not in a static state.

Hope it helps
Ed

Actually must be that....

My setups sheets I do blue writing for one ways, and red for spools..... as I don't run a diff works well to quickly grab the right pile of paper in the 415 box

BTW guys there is a blank 415 Lightweight set-up sheet on there, if you wish to download it, please feel free. Got a few revisions to it as well.

So you run 0° toe but use C/A. Am I right?
Another question: When you put in the rear #5 on the droop gauge, do you have a gap between the spring and the collar (when you hold the car up). Because I have to put #6 to remove this gap. So my question is: is it a problem to have a gap (1.5mm) between the spring and the collar.

Thanks,

Hugo

I think this gap is usual. I have this also with my EVO3. Don´t remember how this was with my TC3. I think a droop of 6 is not a good idea for the rear.

Quiet correct

And V12 is spot on with the droop, doesn't really matter, I never seem to have any gap with the springs and coller though, are you using the long or short springs?

OK, forgive the ingorance but i still am having problem with droop. If i am using the Yokomo scale on the rear of the car, will a higher or lower number give me more bite? Hith all of the different methods i see on measuring droop this seems to be the simplest.

here's kind of newbie question, what caster blocks come with regular suspension 415, and what's the part #s for both 4 and 2 degree blocks? Thanks.

Right a Higher number gives you LESS droop. ie #5 is further up the scale than #4. Therefore the lower the number, the more weight is transfered, and the more bite.
