regarding anti squat and anti dive, I personally use them on bumpy tracks, they help the car absorbing the bumps much better and make it much more predictable, and on that kind of tracks the effect on handling (loss in lateral grip, increase in forward traction) is negligible compared to the gain in suspension work.

Looks like a nice deal. I have been seeing deals around $175 to $210 range on ebay. Just mentioning that as a mental note, that is all.

What have you been putting on the 1st gen 415 keeping it TCS legal? Seems like stock arms for carpet and LW arms for pavement anything else?

What assortment of Toe blocks are good to get for starters? Not sure what comes with the kit? Are the 415s 1mm or 2mm in height. The 414 is 0mm and EVO3 2mm from what I know. Oh, I am running rubber tires too.

Jeff

Hi Ed,

Should be next week. Maybe I can also invite Dave Jun on here to answer some of the questions you guys might have on this suspension system.

Just a note, Dave Jun clicked off one of the fastest lap time ever at the Tamiya track on the Reedy layout (12.95 is what I heard) and that's accurate off the AMB lap counting system. So there is something to be said about this new suspension upgrade.

I reckon it will too... you won't be disapointed.

Of course as long as you put the rear hubs on the right way round, eh Scho?

It uses 46mm driveshafts.

12.9 something is hella fast and he did a bunch of 13 flats to back it up.
