It's just a little chatter if you have your wheels turned to full lock, it happens on every kind of drive axle except Losi's new design.

Hey guys, thanks for the help and the suggestions with setup. I did get the car settled down quite nicely, actually too much so and it pushed . One of the biggest things I did was to raise the drive frequency on my VFS-1, and that compensated for my less than smooth throttle finger which was making the car squirt around on power too much. I ended up adding front droop, removing some rear droop, moving the rear shocks in one hole and dropping the spring 1 rate. All in all I was pretty happy and looking forward to running this car again in a couple weeks in the final race of the Midwest Touring Car Championships.

To be quite honest, I'm not entirely sure what it did to the car... I stupidly did that mod at the same time as changing a load of other things... Still I've kept it, and it does seems slightly responsive on the steering. However don't take that as read, as I haven't done any back-to-back with std rack position (just haven't had the time), I'm just running it on the reasoning, if it's good enough for Marc R, it's good enough for me... oh and that i'm lowering the CoG

Ok, the 415 gurus out here that have more than 2000 posts, know anything?

Sure hard to get questions answered on this thread.

TIA
Dom

Stock setup is with the ball stud backwards. Moving it forward will reduce ackermann, thus the car will be less agressive entering the corner, but will have more mid to exit corner steering.

Dom, you want to use the on-road hard spring set. It's the one with the longer springs and kind of a darker color. I don't use the short springs, and the flourescent spring set is older and softer.

In regards to flipping the steering plate, I have never done that so I wouldn't know how it affects the car. Also, I have not lowered the steering rack and spaced the balls up. It's something that I believe won't help much unless I want to play with bumpsteer (which I don't ) When this was done at the Worlds, it was because it was the Worlds. Everything was placed as low as it can go for a low CG (every little bit helps) not because it will magically give you more steering.

About the two holes on the steering knuckles (C1 and C2), it's easier to remember it this way. Inner hole, more steering. Outter hole, less steering.

Thanks to TryHard, 415boy and Rod!!!

I guess I'll do some comparison on the steering plate this Saturday.

So safe to say that the tuned springs set I got that has the red, blue, yellow and white are the long ones then.

thanks again guys!

Dom
