I will be their bro!!!!!!!! I will hopefully have my 415 dialed by then. Going to run it at least once before Jackson at a indoor asphalt track to try to get a shakedown on the car and to get use to the 415. I have only driven shaft cars for the last few years when I was racing touring.

go with the stock springsor 13-15 lbs. and about 35-40 oil, this car is super responsive. Red sway bars in the front none in the rear, when you attach the red swat bars you will notice a great deal of side to side slop, the way to fix the is to angle the sway bar retainer clips, this let's them operate smoothly and stop the side to side movement

couldn't find info through the forum search.

what is the purpose of reversing the steering hubs?
for example: c1, c2

is it for more steering, how many degrees does it give the user?

Thanks in advance!

Racer;

Not entirely sure, but the difference between the two settings is axle height.
ie one way round the axle will be higher (c1 on the right, c2 on the left) , the other lower (right c2, left c1).

Don't know what it'll do to the handling, never tried.

Someone else on here might be able to help on that.

Regards
Ed

Default Inbound Toe

As my understanding, inbound toe will in fact affect axis-base length, which will change the weight transfer, result different driving characteristic.

1st assume lower a-arm is horizontally at downstop.

When you have inbound toe-in, your wheel axis will move backward when the suspension travel upward (compression)

When you have inbound toe-out, your wheel axis will move forward when suspension travel upward (compression)

So, if you have a fixed variable on all other setting. For rear suspension, increasing inbound toe-in will reduce weight transfer to back during accelration. For front suspension, increasing inbound toe-out will reduce weight transfer to front during braking.

The affect is similar to kick-up/anti-squat which will change axis-base length during suspension movement.


Please lemme know if I made any mistake...

This affects rollcenter. As with the instructions its the higher rollcenter the other way it´s lower rollcenter. I had the reversed version in the beginning with my EVO3 when I didn´t know there are two ways using the steering hubs. The reversed version gives more steering but also makes the car twitchy. Never went back to this however.

That sounds logical to me. If this is infact the case, why does everyone like front inboard toe out? I have the MS, and biggest issues I have to over come is lack of steering on tighter tracks. If I run inboard toe out on the front, I'm decreasing the weight transfer to the front on corner entry, which would make the car push (which it already does). In fact, I'm coming to the conclusion that A/A blocks in the front are better than A/D or A/C for tight tracks, though this is only my experience. Since I have gone to inboard toe out on the front, I've found it harder to get the car to turn in and out of the corner, but I've kept it this way because it's what everyone says is better. I'm going to try going back to 0 or .5 deg toe out and see how it feels.

On the rear, having inboard toe in seems it would help keep weight on the front end for more on power steering. My own experience (though minimal back to back) is when I changed from the 0 deg rear hubs and 1.5 deg inboard toe in to 1.5 deg hubs and 0 inboard toe, the car had a lot more steering, everywhere. This is totally unscientific, as it was a different day, with different tires, etc., but I was very surprised at the difference.

Nexus, It's really easy to do, take a 3/32 drill bit, and four 3mm grub screws . took me about 10mins to do the car.

You can also use these along with the "twist". Blue Aluminum Collars Thanks to Jimmay-J for the find.

Boy, that tape on the sway bar really looks like it will interfere badly with the swaybars up and down movement!

With the shocks off and droop taken out the arms move freely as does the swaybar
