Cut down the size of your rear wing might help.

if you are running A / D blocks in the front (hinge pins toed in), this could cause a push. try going A / A and go from there.

I'm going to try spool next week. Any special behavior should I worry about on setting?

My current setting is with front 1-way, super steering on corner entry (deceleration steering) and a bit push on corner exit (acceleration steering).

Yes, the lightened hollow ones I bought for the Evo IV work fine and they were TA04 ones. Plus... they work on my new 415 too.

I'll try some of those suggestions. I like how the car is in the slower corners, really stable and is generally stable throughout... just it lacks initial corner entry speed. I will try a few things out with the toe settings. thanks for the suggestions guys.

There was a LOT of talk about it on the Evo IV forum a month or so ago. I used the Evo IV at the Summernats with the same type of suspension and I didn't really have any problems with it. I used 6mm hexes with it though but you could still just use 2mm worth of spacers on the front hexes to get the same effect. I also had to cut down the front wheels + rim by about a mm or so, that's the only thing that I really had to do.

Check out the Evo IV thread, your answer is there FOR SURE.... just it could take some time.

What are you currently running for the one way?

The only thing i realy adjust when switching from 1-way to spool was the front springs. Dropped from tamiya whites (1-way) to Tamiya blues (spool). Apart from that, everything else i kept the same.

I've given my 415 a big overhaul over the weekend. I've set it up with a layout another bloke has run at my track, with shocks angled the way he had them (a link to how he had his car setup here: http://members.iinet.net.au/~a.parre...ps/Boronia.gif ), put white springs on the front, blue at the back, and yellow stabiliser bars front and back.
Haven't checked toe or camber yet, as I'll check on a setup board this Wednesday. But I'll set the camber the same as what Tony did.
With rear toe I am keeping the blocks/bulkheads the same as what is in the Tamiya manual, 1Ds at the rear and 1C at the front for 0.5 toe in. However I do not know how much toe my rear uprights have since they are aluminium ones fashioned on the lightweight/Evo IV ones, and there is no number stamped on them for how much toe they give.
I am running 27 turn stock and trying to dial out some of the understeer it has. See how it goes Wednesday night.

EDIT: Tryhard your site rocks. Learnt so much about chassis setup from it, as well as tips from other friends.

My setting right now is kind extreme...

Tamiya yellow spring F/R; AE35 F, AE50 R
Tamiya yellow roll bar F/R
Stock suspension
Shock on 2tower,1arm F; 4tower, 2arm R
3mm spacer F; 0mm spacer R; Droop 0F/3R
Toein -1F/3R; camber 0F/1.5R; Kickup 0F/1R
61mm JACO foam F/R; 1mm spacer on all 4 wheels
3mm chassis, double deck

I know this setting is kind strange but that works for me. I guess I probably doesn't need to change setting for spool if the only thing TryHard did is softer front, where mine is too soft already (extremely good steering on deceleration, probably too good indeed)

Btw, by using spool, should I go for center one-way? or keep using direct pulley?

Btw, I did this little mod on my 415: additional belt stabilizer on chassis.

The goal is to free some space under the belt so I can put some weight right on CG to meet the rule. Also, kepp the rolling mass as light as possible for faster direction change, in theory.

But right now Novak SS5800 is kind overweight so I don't need to put any weight for rule. In fact it's 15g overweight still (with 70% of screws already Ti, lol )
