correct!

of course it depends a lot on the aluminium alloy and the way (thickness) you cote it. in my opinion delrin is to soft and aluminium is the way to go - with the lowest mass possible.

G'day Everyone!!

I just got my 415MS about 12 hours ago and I finished building it about 6 hours ago!!! Just been soldering up wires and diodes and caps for the new VFS-1 that goes with it. I can't wait to take it on to the track to see what its like, especially as I used to drive an Evo IV.

I'm also interested in getting a spool but there are sooo many different types out there that its making it pretty hard to choose one. Seems like there are pros and cons with everything, but I generally think that whatever TRF run, is good enough for me.

I look forward to chatting to you guys more about the car in the future.

BTW - Would anyone happen to have a link for a Modified setup for the 415?? There seems to be quite a few stock and 19T setups but I'd really like some sort of idea of where to start with the car in terms of setup. I have a reasonable idea of what to expect since I got the Evo IV, but still, I am expecting it to be a bit different.

Good luck with the 415MS. If I remember well, you're racing outdoors, so you'll probly want to go for Randy Caster's SoCal setup on there

Regarding the spools, I don't see where you've seen so many. There is the SpeedTech spool, that's hard to get as everyone wants them, and the TiR spools that are hard to get because they are not well distributed (even in the UK). Now the RC Maniax spool is not yet available, and Jurgen's spool is made on demand only.

Yeh, 4 spools is 3 more then what was available for the Evo IV.

You are right.... I do race outdoors on asphalt and I truly can't wait to tear up the track. Thanks for the setup and I'll get back to you with my findings.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

A couple of weekends ago Fred had mentioned that we can us 3300s for the open classes and anything goes for the invitational. But I can't say for sure how accurate that is. Afterall, it's Mike Reedy's call.

Whatcha think: lightweight arms or standard arms on a 415 for Reedy?
And how much do I need to bribe Fred to get in?

Hrmm...good question. A few weeks ago, Corey ran last year's setup with old arms and his car was good. My car has the LW front with the DJ (pro-something or another ) rear and I plan on working with that. Corey, spent most of last Saturday putting on a spare DJ set and when he ran it, his car was ballin! Also, Jimmy and EJ were down recently and they got a pretty good setup for the LW suspension. I'd hit them up when you get a chance. But you're Ling...your cars always look good

But yeah, I'm running the hybrid setup this year. Also, I installed some Acer ceramics...they're kinda bindy and I don't think they'll be in the car come race time
