Flipping the plate is just another tuning option, this changes the position of the inner tierod mount, changing the ackerman affect. It reduces ackerman. I have had problems with plastic hubs fracturing mounting the pivot ball on the the outer hole, so this is the reason going this route. BUt now I am going to try the outer hole again, with the flipped plate. The closer you get to equal turning of each wheel, equals less ackerman, which in the end equals more corner speed. I hope this helps.

i would be selling....

415 Chassis (ms towers, ceramic bulkhead bearuings, re-enforced diff joints, white belts, heatsink beam, belt stabiliser, Ti screws on upper of car (steel on the underside), Ti turn-buckles, running hwt susp and locked layshaft).
Lwt susp.
1way/spool/diff (and 46mm shafts for use with hwt susp).
spair shock towers.
spair normal diff halves with shields.
spair wishbones.
spair uj parts.
and other spairs (diff parts/bearings/screws/spacers etc).

im really bad at pricing things so any guide to asking price would be apprechiated

thanks
being serious stew, I would reckon that you have about 350 worth of stuff there, if not more. (say 200 odd for the car, and then 150 or so for all the spare parts you have)

Hope it helps
Ed

Just wondering if anyone is running the 415 on carpet with foams and using a Diff?
Are there diffs available other than building one from the yokomo parts?
