Speaking of whom, we'd still loooove to get a setup base for that DJ suspension

Mark I am highly disappointed in the pics I see there.

Main Entry: main·te·nance

French, from maintenir
1 : the act of maintaining : the state of being maintained

Grease blobs, flashing not trimmed, glue just slopped onand that belt did that used to be white? Man must be a pregnant wife around the house.

Rod,put down the crack pipe(Rockstar) and just drive.

See you guys in a couple of weeks.

Did you really think I'd show the clean car?!?!!!!!

As for maintenance, the car is wicked good - but needs a good rebuild.

-Grease blobs - ahem - good for 1/10th of a sec. only... tested

-flashing - Tamiya has more MEs that anyone else, if the flashing wasnt needed - why would they include it?

-belt - No my friend, that is the OG Black Belt. If you kids ever got outside to run in the PacNorWest - your pretty white belts would trun black too with all of the ash falling from the sky!

She is very pregnant, so watch yourself - you might get a slapping at Reedy

Looking forward to getting you kids down here. Have a safe trip.

TRF415boy-
I do have a base line set-up. We will have it posted on our (Tamiya) web site soon. I just have to take photos of the system and transfer the set-up on to a PDF. rather than posting the scanned version. Sorry for the delay. This past Saturday was the last day of practice before the track was closed for the Reedy Race. It had rained the Thursday before so the conditions were not all that great. Fortunately, the set-up was still good enough to set an average lap time of 13.5 in these conditions (The fastest lap for me was 13.1). The base line set-up is floating around out there but there is one thing I found out I did wrong. I wrote the droop settings backwards on the sheet so the front droop is really the back and visa versa.

Have not had my 415 long (1 week) so I missed this I'm sure but what is the differance between a XA, XC type blocks and standard X, C and so on blocks if any?

The X-series are narrower.

Basically it goes in order (narrowest to widest)

XD, XC, XB, XA, X, A, B, C, D

If you look on the link in my sig, you'll find a block chart. Has all the toe angles you'll get with 0, 1 and 2 deg rear hubs.

HiH

It's a FisherPrice Craptop thank you very much. Nice pics...btw is that a piece of molten solder on your 1A block? WTH?!? Your soldering iron has no business being nowhere near that part of the car

p.s. Ironically enough, I just had a 24oz Rockstar...bzzzzzzing!

Mark, I'm in a state of shock. I figured only guys like me let their cars get that dirty.

You run the red shocks on your 415 too, hmmm...

Actually, I have two sets, one blue and one red. The red ones have the two hole pistons and the blue have the three hole ones. Ya gotta do stuff like that, in order to remember things, when you get my age.

RED = Hot (fast, smooth tracks).
BLUE = Cold, (slower, bumpy tracks).

Thanks for the "tape" tips, since Tamiya is now offically closed until The Reedy, good luck to you (and your wife on her upcoming delivery too).

Not a problem - always there to help. Yes, red is faster. Ask MF. Thanks for the well wishes. All of the strollers and kids hardware showed up today. I think I am going to branch off and make hi-end hopups for kids. R/C stroller is the first thing in mind. The kid looks like he is sponsored by PegPerego. See you at the track
