Guys,
I have an MS for sale, still new in box shrink wrapped and all. It looks like I won't be running asphalt this season, so it needs to go. PM me if interested. I'll let you guys have a crack at it first before I list in the F/S forum.

Tryhard: Thanks for those photo's... Its just what I wanted to see. I think I will stick with the standard towers as I haven't had droop probs yet on the rear and I like to match my shock angles together... The MS front tower will make that harder.

Anyone got a part number for the trf415 2.5mm lower deck? Would be nice to get the price too (in yen off the packet)

Default MS shock towers for carpet racing foam tires

I just don't see the need for ms shock tower for carpet racing, avg. droop for carpet is about let say 5mm to 6mm for carpet, I say this because lesser droop value( more arm travel) is more suited for bumpy tracks. For me I just think its more of a want then a need, this is my opinion but feel free to reply

Hi all,

Been racing my TRF 415 for the first time this week end, and I gotta say I'm impressed, it's a much better car than my 414M/SSG was, and I was quite quick with it.

So far, I've been racing carpet/rubber (controlled tires/rims/inserts), using Marc's LRP TCM winning setup (apart from minor details like the outer shock tower hole and 2 toe in blocks instead of the 1 alloy ones). If you're racing on carpet with rubber, I suggest you try that setup, all I did all week end was put the car on the track and race, I haven't changed a single thing on the car, that's about how dialed it was .

This week end, will race on a totally different surface, so I'm making a spool (pinning my one way) and I'll probably start playing with setups.

One thing I noticed, the alloy turnbuckles are one of the weak points, and also the ball studs on the rear hubs .I replaced the turnbuckles with Ti ones off my 414M, and the ball stud by a ball nut/Ti screw like it has always been on the 414M.
Is that setup buried in this thread, or some where on the web?

Thanks,

Wicked.

Since I started running the car, I've gottten 4 other guys onto the car. I even force Raul to dump that Schumacjer of his and get a 415 after opening a can of woop ass on him the first night out with my car.

If you need set-up tips. send me an e-mail. I will be at South Shore this Sunday

No, I have no clue who you are...

Hi,

Can anyone advice on the difference in setup for 415 (not MS, with stock arm, not with LW arm) on an asphalt track and a carpet track? I've been running on asphalt all this while. Will be running a carpet indoor for the first time next month. Thanks in advance!

The only advantage I see to having a lower front shock tower for carpet is to be able to slam the body lower on the car. Otherwise, I agree with dawgmeat about droop.

running on carpet with rubbers there is really very little setup change needed, we usually just reomve the under block spacers so all blocks sit flat on the chassis, and use an A bridge block on the front to give inboard toe out

ive never used foams on carpet so if your using those im affraid i cant help

my Novak setup was pretty basic...

40 wt oil, shocks all stood up. D-A bridge block, rear blocks were B-C, for 2.5 total toe. 2mm spacers on front camber link, 0 reaqr... blocks all flat on chassis. wheelbase was all the way back in front, middle rear..... new Protoform 3.0 Stratus. worked very well with the handout Take-Off 27s, i thought.... wish i coulda drove it better!
