arhh... I'd say NO to 4 degree's negitive camber. I'd start with 2 degree's negitive all round the go from there. I'd use a different block combination in the rear as well. 1 degree wont work real well in most situations. I would never go below 2 degrees or over 3

Dawgmeat-
Foam tires will most likely be too wide to fit. I don’t know how effective it would be on carpet with foam tires to be honest. Typically, the set-ups for such are very stiff in comparison to rubber resulting in much smaller suspension travel so you may not see any benefit. Also, on carpet with foam, you’re usually trying to free up the car to carry more corner speed. Traction and stability is usually more difficult to obtain racing asphalt on rubber tires and this is what the Pro-Module System is intended for.
thank you

Default Evo IV or 415

I am debating between a few touring cars and wanted to get someone to help me with the difference between the Evo IV and the 415. Also what does the MS editions of each have? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Ran the 415 today. Pretty much bone stock 415 with the stock suspension with a different rear toe block. Ran rubber tires on it and had a pretty much locked front diff (Yoke setup).

Car was really smooth once I got the right tires on it (TakeOff 32's) and then it steered great and plenty of rear traction. The thing was easy to drive and didn't do anything unexpected. Might try 50wt oil from the 40wt oil I have in it. The track has so much traction your sneakers stick like glue to the track.

Car ran pretty flawless and with the stock suspension setup is pretty much unbreakable for the most part. If it keeps working like this I won't have to spend 80 bucks to get the LW suspension.

Well it is off some from the stock type setup. I got the car used and it had 4 runs on it and thats it. I changed the oil to 40wt with blue front srpings and yellow rear springs. I do have the alum rear hubs and a total of 2 degrees of rear toe per side. Also have 1mm spacers under the front toe block to add a little more kick for more overall caster. All stock wheel bases and bottom of shocks in the outter holes. Front shocks in one hole on the tower from the outside of the shock and 2nd to last whole in on the rear tower.

The rear blocks are front rear X block and rear C block with the 1 degree rear alum hubs with the ball stud out into the 3rd hole mounting posistion.

I had it on the EVO IV I had and if I ran foams on carpet then it might be nice to have but since I only run rubber tires on asphalt I can't see needing to have it. Also another thing is when I had my EVO IV a few months ago the LW stuff is never in stock when I needed it. I want to race not wait and try to hunt for parts all the time.

I think Tamiya is working on a diff for it. How many at GB today? Did you guys run rubber tires?

Yeah the 415 was awesome today. After some work I had it running pretty good for my driving. Finsihed 3rd tonight so I was very pleased.
