Hebiki,

Have you come up with a set up for SoCal yet. Last weekend was not very encouraging.

quick ref to the manual....

Bulkheads are 1510's, layshafts are 840's.

LWT suspension has 950's in the hubs, Standard suspension 1150's

Not too sure how they translate to actual mm measurements though..

Hope it helps
Ed

1510 = 10x15mm
840 = 4x8mm
950 = 5x9mm
1150= 5x11mm

What's up Chris Check if one of the universal pins is sticking out a bit to far on one side and actually just catching the hub, or the king pin screws a little bit. If not, just check for worn parts (outdrives, axles joints...etc.) I might be at the shop late tomorrow, so bring it by if you want, and we can take a look at it

Hi Guys,

Just a quick update on the TRF415 spools, they should be available again either today or early part of next week.

And our next shipment from Tamiya USA should be arriving soon as well

pssst...the 415 with old suspension is pretty good at socal Still needs work...

Anybody know what fast laptimes were last Tuesday or Saturday at socal for pro stock? Would mid-hi 10's to 11 flats with a best of 10.56 be considered "on pace"?

Rtypec,

When I was there last weekend someone had mentioned that the old suspension worked better. He was running an EVOIII with it. Can you explain why?

Default old vs new susp

I agree with Rtypec - the old suspension works great. I am not any quicker with the new one, but the new one does provide a little more steering and more tuning options.

I agree with what Martin says. The newer suspension does provide a whole slew of setup options with a bonus of a few grams of unsprung weight being saved. As for which suspension is better, I don't know as I have not tested the LW stuff on my 415 as of yet. With regards to socal, there is so much traction that almost any suspension can work you just have to tune with what you got

One last thing, I kind of prefer the old suspension sway bar mounting holes with the aluminum balls...I've snapped off enough of the newer plastic balls on the Evo4 hehe woops.
