I run foam on my 415 fine with LW sus.

Dual a-blocks on the front with 6mm hubs all round.

Add 1mm spacer to front and u fit 26mm foams easy, you can run whatever size foams on the rear but large foams will only reduce corner speed.
WHAT'S IS THE PRO AND CONS OF USING 26mm FOAMS -VS- 28mm foam in the front

I have NO issues with 28mm foam tires on both my 415 and Evo IV.

28mm tires = Jaco, TRC, Parma, BSR, other USA based foams

26mm tires= Yokomo, Mugen, other Foreign foams

28mm just seems to be the choice for most fast guys at big races.. like Cleveland... Snowbirds.. etc.

26mm is mainly for Nitro Touring front tires....

That's just the way I've seen things.

hey there

just thought id like to share a little tip. i brought the new suspension for my 415 and used it a few times outdoors. i was really happy with it, had my car feeling great 1 of the quickest on the track! I decided to try it indoors 1s ( im not the best indoor ) and made a mistake and broke a rear hub! day was wrecked. So i brought some spares carried on with the outdoors untill i recently got presuaded to try indoor again. I found a decent setup and was finnaly on pace with the top guys when i got into a collision and broke another rear hub! i got pissed off so decided to hack away at my old suspension.

i shaved lots of the old rear hub in order for it to fit on the new wishbones and it worked. on the track it was great ! i was even quicker and did colide and nothing wrong!!! so i was super impressed ( plus the bearing factor! ).

Today i was outdoor and worried about the rear hubs... but no! still was awesome, taken TQ and won both finals.

defienly worth trying out if any of you are having a similar prob.

thanks

eVo

i have no issues running 28mm foams all around either the thing is there is a little rubbing in the front i had that with my EVO3 so a little experimenting with the tire truer and i found out that the narrower tire in the front is a little faster around the corner and if you guys see are track its very technical now about the LW suspension i dont know how good it will work on carpet but so far i hear lots of guys going back to the old suspension ill try it in 2 weeks when are season starts .

It's no wonder guys are going back to the stock 415 suspension for carpet racing. After all, the stock suspension was designed to be used on tight tracks, which carpet tracks are all, for the most part, tight tracks.

Hey V12, how was the race in Zillsheim
Well i think that in carpet race is a lot better to use the old suspension...since a little hit with a board could make you loose the race..., and for all of us "normal" drivers could be a lot more interesting than 0.003 tenths of a second

Must bee any prototype suspension. But maybe not the right thing for this track. I think they didnīt use this during the race.
