3. HPI silver springs
4. Non Tamiya sway bars
for the sway bars it would have to be ALEX Racing or..AE TC3 sway bars... most of the Tamiya guys were running them at the Japanese Nationals

First time out with the car tonight, at last. only 4 runs but I'm well impressed with the car so far, I've put Marc's LRP TCM setup (carpet with rubber) and the car was just spot on, I just had to get used to the car and track. Ended up 3rd but I was only lacking power, need new cells and to get some pinions to gear the car up properly.

Randy...If you look at one of the close up pictures you will notice Marc has spaced his servo forward giving you the impression that his batteries are further forward. It allows a little more room for the radio gear. I have done the same thing except I used Yokomo SD servo mounts(blue as well)

thanks
That would take out steering putting the spacers on the steering rack, putting them under the ballstuds on the spindles would give more steering.

I dont think he was taking out steering there, I think he was spacing them back up to stock, the bellcranks look really low there, propably took out the shims from under the bellcranks and put them on top.

I guess I havent seen a pic of the 415 3mm chassis in a while, but the front battery slot just looked far forward, I guess it was just me though.

Just ran some carpet/foams with the 415. Car ran pretty good. Did some testing with Parma vs Jaco. To me.. I found that Parma tires (Cyan/Magenta) offer more steering and traction than Jaco tires (DblPink/Orange and DblPink). But the Jaco's felt more consistant throughout the run. The Parma's might of had a bit too much traction to the point of traction rolling... or almost.

Also, didn't quite like the softer spring setup (AE copper/gold vs yellow/copper). Seemed like the softer setup made the car roll too much. I dunno... I'll test it out more next weekend. This weekend was a bit too hectic since I had to work and got to the track too late for more testing.

Anyways, gonna try out more stuff next weekend... til then, here's my current 19t setup for carpet with foams.

Default carpet setup

Well,


After a night of practice, and no broken parts this is what I came up with.
First, front:
2 hole, 40 wt 25lb spring
droop 5 on hudy
no sway
1mm spacer behind wheels 4mm hex
dual oneways
standard suspension, 1mm spacer in rear of arm, and 2mm anti dive.
shocks one hole in on tower
-1.5 neg camber
A bridge, frt a block
cyan tires glued outside edge
Rear:
2 hole 40 wt 27.5lb spring
droop 6 hudy
no sway
standard suspension, 1mm spacer in frt of arm, no riser
shock one hole in on tower
-2 neg camber
a block frt and rear.
1 degree alloy hubs
wht belts.
Parma Alfa was body of choice, but tried the Tamiya Subuaru, not as consistent as the Parma.
Genesis Binary ROAR stock 102/28---fast..
I may try a little different stuff real soon.....

Randy, or some one else, can you please tell me if there is a height difference of shock towers on the 415, to the MS? It looks like the frt tower is a little lower on the MS???? Where can I get it if so?

Reinhardt gave me some ideas....

Raul, it's actually the blank PDF file off of the Tamiya Japan website. I just opened it up in Photoshop and tossed in my own info. Then resized it down and saved it as a GIF file for up loading on the net. Makes it easier to read I think.

Also, not sure, but I thought that the front tower on the MS was actually taller than the Regular 415. But the rear tower is lower on the MS due to the "lower" body mounts. I might be mistaken about the front though...

Goon: Did George change the track and what type of lap times are you taking about? No racing for me this weekend. I had a big poker game at my apartment on Friday night, which had me up till 5am. Still cleaning the mess.....LOL

Default Diff. which to those

Should I buy the diff from Tamiya (51058+50880+51055) to rear end of my Trf 415 or is there anything better for it, and the balls to put in it, what about them, I have heard that the Tamiya balls are not the best.

Carl,
HC did put up a new layout, it has changed a little from the first posted pics, but still very fast....We did not have the jlap running yesterday, it was open practice. The car was good, but needs a little refinement. Take a look at the setup. SO this poker game is where you get all your money, or was it a STRIP POKEHER night? Call me.

bulkheads are the same, but the towers are lower. just a little, but it allows you to slam the body just that bit more.
