Don't forget he uses the Futaba 9550 servo which is slimmer than standard servos. That alone will free up more space than the 2-3 mm spacers he used on his servo mounts.

I use all the same electronics as Marc, so I have the same amount of free space, it definately helps to have everything compact on this chassis, keep the ESC right off the motor so it isnt getting all the heat transfered.

RC Professor,

3mm ceramic diff balls for the 415 are available from Xenon Racing Japan as well.

Default Shock shafts

Does anyone know if the Alex Racing shock shafts marc was using at the worlds are any longer than the std 415 ones?
It's just i find that to get the required shock length's (62mm F and 62.5mm r) for the droop i run, I have to unscrew the ball end... something I'm not too hot on doing. Just wondered if anyone has any experience with these?

Thanks in advance
Ed

Has anyone done some serious testing themselves to prove that either of the suspension systems is better than the other??

I have had the chance to compare the two a few times now and I think the difference is almost nothing on the track.

I think the LW gives better stability and mid corner steering.

I think the standard is more responsive and more reliable.

Wat are your thoughts?

Tried the MS kit for the very first time on a tight outdoor asphalt track with standard settings and I'm a bit hmmmmmm......lets just say I expected to much. The lap times where about the same as my Pro4 which is good, considering I had the pro4 for almost a year but after 6 runs the diffs and the rear 950 bearings became gritty which is not good at all considering it is still Bnew. In fairness to Ms kit I still have to give more time and try new set ups. Any of you guys have a good set up to try. By the way my car tends to push using the std. set up. Hope you guys can help me.

Hi guys...

Wat is the difference between shock towers on the standard 415 and the MS?

can someone post a pic of them side by side? (front vs frontMS, rear vs rearMS)

Part No. 50985 is a 4degree c-hub for the standard suspension. I belive there was another outhere. I'm sure I had a 6degree when I had my 04R. Anyone know wat the castor was and the part number?

Thanx....

If you are running on a high bite track, try my setup on TryHards website.

The MS is dialed, couldnt ask for much more out of it, everything I try just seems to make it better though.
