That Kai-chassis looks hot, too bad i'm too far away to steal it


Well, braggingtime
5th place at the Swedish championship, not bad at the first time ever running the car

Setup Question:

What does it do when you put inboard toe out on the front end.
For example : XB rear front & B front front (2 in board toe out), then you set the front at 0 toe.

What is the effect on the car handling?

It generally gives more mid corner steering, but with a tiny tiny bit less turn in.

That's the swept arms setup, I'm going to try that out too, just bought the blocks the other day. One of the final runs with the Evo IV before I sell it, to get 415MS!!!! Should be AWESOME in Modified!

Default Loctite on metal to metal parts

I have two questions:

One, I am looking for a good carpet rubber stock / 19T set-up for a 415 MS and almost all of the set-ups that I see out here are for the 415. Does anybody have any good 415 MS carpet rubber set-ups?

Two, when assembling your 415 MS are you using Loctite on all of the metal-to-metal parts (i.e. pivot blocks, chassis parts etc.)? I did this on my EVO III and it seemed like it kind of ruined the hardware.

Damn I am getting frustrated with this car.

So many problems. I think it is time to switch. Anyone want to buy my 415?
