Just grind off the very end of the driveshaft where the drive pin goes and make a little more clearance for the 1 way cup. I have to do that with the stock 46mm driveshafts on my MS with the narrow Worlds blocks.

Well its been a while since I've posted to this link, so I figured I'd share my latest carpet set-up with everyone (foam tires). Raced this past weekend in Maryland, RC Track.

Got the starting set-up from Jimmy Jacobson and EJ. 27T raor legal stock motors
Fr.
ASC purple springs / 50wt oil / stock piston
No sway bars
B/A block (5 degree sweep)
Red axle spacers (190mm wide)
Front Yok diff (set tight)
46mm steel dogbones, Ti axles
stock syspension arms (not the LW)
Shocks standing upright.
4.5mm ride height (1mm droop)
58mm Parma Cyan
Everything else stock settings

Rear:
ASC Red Springs / 50wt oil / stock piston
No sway bars
Overall rear Toe 1 degree (using the 1 degree alum hub carrier) Toe in blocks B/B
Camber link on the outer hole of the hub carrier
Red Axles spacer (190mm)
Stock diff. (white delrin wears too easily)
42mm alum dogbones, Ti axles
stock suspension arms (not the LW)
Shock upright (waiting for the MS towers)
5mm ride height (2mm droop)
58mm Parma Magenta
Everything else stock setting.

Parma 190mm Alfa / LF Belts -1 click rear, stock fr / 102 spur / monster stock- 25.6-26.3mm rollout

Default vs.

Has anyone on this board raced/owned a Pro4 and 415?

I'm considering switching but looking for input regarding the differences.

I've never owned any Tamiya's and all those weird 1XB, 1X, blocks I can't figure out.

I only race rubber tires on carpet and asphault in the summer.

Any input is appreciated.

I currently run an after market low friction black belt on my car. I forgot who makes it though... Maybe Echo?? I don't remember. It's posted like.... 6 months ago hehe... I got that one before the Tamiya White belts came out. If you do a search you can find it.

That Jimmy J setup sounds pretty close to one I ran not too long ago. Different sweep up front though and different rear blocks... mine were D/D... his were B/B. Gotta try that out. But I also ran a red sway bar. Any idea on his camberlink height? Or arm spacing?

Dawg.... the RaySpeed CVD's are the same front to rear... the axles are different though. If SpeedtechRC doesn't sell the bones separate, you can pick them up at R10. Part number RS37. That is 980yen for one dog bone. They might have pairs as well? I dunno.

Rayspeed bones+ Pro 4 axles = no more binding at full throw

Randy as Turbo stated...

As far as other products they have quite a range form Ceramics to Foam along with their new charger under the APS banner. Korey is using the charger also. It makes a nice alternative to having two GFX's on the pit table. They also have a pit bag out of the same mat'l as the radio bag. Real similar to the others with cardboard storage but the bag is cool looking. As we all know getting to the track looking cool is worth a 1/10th

I didnt realize they had so much stuff, now if only it was blue anodized, it would be good for 2/10 of a second.
