thanks for the info on the spool rick, makes sense now

looking at some of the other pictures though, it looks like marc has plastic rear hubs on the a car I'm going to assume that he ran the Alu ones, as the Worlds kit comes with them

Also after a bit more studying, I noticed that it looks like marc was running a flipped F-R block
(this image http://www.radiocontrol.gr/galleries...rlds200434.jpg), and the sweep of the front arms is quite dramatic (http://www.radiocontrol.gr/galleries...rlds200438.jpg), so I guess he was running lots of inboard front toe-out.
Given that they are included in the worlds kit, I would assume the X-series blocks were in use somewhere on the car.

I have seen those for the Pro 4 but didnt realize they were avalible for the 415. I didnt think it was too good of an idea though with the delrin outdrives on a spool. He propably had to replace them every run.

I dont have a 415 right here to reference with, but in the picture showing the front arm sweep, are his batteries more forward than the normal chassis would be?

you're right Randy, I think in fact, they stopped producing the delrin outdrive version of the spool and replaced it with aluminum outdrives

Ok people,

Since it has been some time since the Worlds ended I think it is ok to post the pics from www.radiocontrol.gr in larger form. All pics in that website from the Worlds were taken by me.

I can confirm the following:
During the whole event Marc's car was fitted with:
1. Alu. spool up front with derlin outdrives. You cannot find it anywhere...
2. HPI rear uprights (not TAMIYA aluminum)
3. HPI silver springs
4. Non Tamiya sway bars

Because the derlin outdrives failed in one qualifyer they tried a spool with metal or aluminum outdrives for less risk. Immediately the car lost steering... or simply wasn't as good as before.

Here are some high resolution pics..

on the pictures of Marc's car there is, i guess 4mm of spacing on the steering rack under the ball-end, using this as a tuning option is somthing ive never tried mainly because i dont really know what the effects of changing this spacing are, what are they?

thanks
