Question to the guys who use jurgen's spool:
Do you use the 42 or 46 shaft with jurgen's spool?
I had a race on sunday, I used brand new corally blades but at the end of the race they were worn out. After 10 runs.
The ones given with the spool were broken after 2 runs.

Default Rheinardt's spool

Does anyone know where I can buy the spool used by Rheinardt?

Thanks

Hahaha, nice Jeffrey!

Rafaelli, make sure you let us know what brand was the answer, you've got a nice setup for sale

Easy answer : just don't, unless you run stock. Too fragile.

To fragile?? I understood that Marc R. was running the Jurgen spool at the worlds and that it went perfectly. using it myself and it is as 'hard' as it can get.

Marc ran a alloy spool with plastic outdrives.

I thought it was a prototype TiR spool, with delrin outdrives.... One of these broke in qualy, so they switched to using alloy outdrives instead.

Titanium Racing? Okay, then I am misinformed. To be honest I wanted the TiR version (due to the delrin outdrives) but after some vague contact I decided to go with the Jurgen Spool (which is a pleasure to drive with).

Jeff, my 415MS is supposed to be the brand new car that provide the long term relief...

Over Gear, I think Jeff was aiming that more at Rafaelli than you.

How far from the box stock setup have you gone? I've found the stock setup pretty good, and if all else fails, go back to that and start over.

The track at So Cal right now is pretty tight, and on Saturday I was pushing a lot, having trouble with turn in. I changed to the locked center pulley (though I'm not sure how much affect this has), and went to 1.5 rear toe in, plus setup with -2.5 rear camber, and -3.0 front camber, and about 1/2 toe in. The only other thing that is not stock setup is 3 hole pistons and 35wt Losi oil (which I was running before). The car was much quicker, turned in a lot better, and had more steering overall.

I'm planning on coming out to Tamiya a few weekends starting on the 26th, maybe we can hook up and compare notes.

greetings

I am planning to go to the Reedy race in may, and was wonder if anyone has a good base set up for 19t I can try on my 415 (not MS)... i.e. Spool, front diff, oneway?, oil, shock positions.
