I donīt know if there is a chance for getting Marcīs setup. I talked to him some time ago about a certain setup and he told me he usually donīt write down his setups. He just change when needed. At the worlds he had a mechanic and from what I have heard Marc didnīt know most time what this guy did. Marc doesnīt speak Japanese language and the mechanic didnīt speak english.

Iīm sorry we didnīt talk on setups when we meet Marc in Zillisheim. Maybe Leini knows more but I donīt think so.
I just know Marc used the new 2.5mm chassis and other damperstays. But itīs only for the front. The rear one looks different but from what I know it just have one additional hole towards the outside. But everybody here drilled this to the current damperstays already. Other than that Marc used the new suspension on his 415.

yup this correct.... as reported at TQ Racing

Nov 11 HOT NEWS
SURIKARN GOES HOTBODIES
Surikarn joins Hot Bodies and will drive HB cars as well as HPI's. This means that HPI-ORION ‘based' team will further strengthen their super strong driver's line up. Surikarn will drive HPI Pro4 and join his new racing team for the very first time at this upcoming weekend JMRCA Japan National EP Touring at Kawaba RC Plaza.

This move also brings back together the ‘original' winning combo of “ex-TRF414”. Masayuki Miura, who is probably better known as Surikarn's mentor- ex-TRF414 test driver/ developer, has joined Hot Bodies almost two years ago and Mr. Yasui, the designer of TRF414 has joined even earlier.

Congratulations & best wishes to Surikarn – Hot Bodies/ HPI

Thanks for the information - did he use the TRF415MS then?

Yes I think the same. Also I donīt know if Marc has a car in perfect condition very often. It seems he really doesnīt care about this, he just drives. In Zillisheim one of his teammates was checking Marcīs car before the A-Main and found a not perfect droop setting on Marcīs car but Marc TQed with this car.

No. It was nearly a stock 415 beside the damperstays and rear uprights.
Steen Graversen and a french driver used the new suspension but also it wasnīt a complete 415 MS. This will be more different than just the new suspension.

So have fun later.
