I'm in agreement with jeffreylin here.
As I understand it, standing the shocks has the effect of stiffening the spring.

This speeds up the reaction time (allows a quicker weight transfer, giving more intial steering), but gives less overall grip (which relates to mid corner).
I remember playing with this before, tried it with the shocks in postion 2, and car had loads and loads of mid corner, but was so lazy and slow to turn in, made it very difficult to drive, for myself any way.

Thanks for the tip. I just sent Juergen a note. BTW, with the Juergen front diff, do you have to buy any other parts to make it work (i.e. thrust bearing, balls, rings)?
How much do these run?
His front diff comes with 2 sets of blades (but I hear they are fragile and i run the Corally blades...perfect fit), diff screw (allows adjustment while in the car like the Xray, you don't have to remove the diffs from the bulkheads), cone washers that take the place of the diff spring.

You need bearings, thrust washers, diff balls and a diff gear and diff rings. All the same stuff used for the 415 rear diff.

Excellent quality! You will never need another set of outdrives as long as you use the blades!!

Hey Guys..

Does the 415 come with the Ti Screws but the 415MS NOT come with the Ti Screws??? In the pics on TamiyaUSA.com the MS doesn't have the Ti screws by the look of it, but the 415 std does come with them.

Anybody have any truth to either story?

Neither kits come with Ti screws. You can get a 'pack' for the kit from SpeedtechRC or Jwerks. Or piece them together yourself with Tamiya Ti screws.

I used the Tamiya Evil 4 Ti screw kit, it had all the required screws to complete my kit.

I agree with Jeffreylin too.

And I disagree with lowering the front link for more turn-in. I find if I raise up the front inner camber link, I get more turn-in. But that's just me.

Ti I screws, as Razzo said, neither come with Ti Screws as standard.

I have tried raising the front inner camber link to 3mm. stock is 2mm. i don't feel much different. I lower the rear inner camber link to zero. i don't feel much different. or i'm just feeling numb...

So, has anyone tried flipping the front a-arm and use the different shock mounting point? what does it do to the car?

Yeah, I understand the numbness symptom. It seems that no matter what you do, you cannot get the car to work right. It's a well know problem among RC enthusiasts. it's also know as newchassisitis. The only known effective cure is to buy a new chassis. If that is not an option, purchasing some expensive hop ups for your current chassis or rebuilding it from the ground up will temporary suppress the symptom, but only a brand new car will provide long term relief.
