Burlap, Berescoe has got it right.
I did this mod last week, just to keep the roll bars from moving around in the mounts. Really only need to tweak the grubs tight, just to make sure the bar still moves freely.

Are most of you guys that run the stock 415 suspension use the 2 hole piston or the 3 hole piston. I have the 2 hole piston setup on right now but I have another set of Tamiya shocks and was thinking of putting 3 hole pistons in them. I only run asphalt with rubber tires if that helps any. Most setups I see seem to favor 2 hole setups.

I would not recomend a solid rear axle on any Electric Touring Car, will make the car very understeered going into the corners and oversteered coming out. Cornerspeed will also be very bad!!

For asphalt with rubber tires I would suggest you use the 3hole piston unless traction is really high!!
Sometimes when traction is really good the 2hole piston can give you more cornerspeed, but keep in mind that they will make the tires work harder (Overheat faster).

I think I will build them with 3 holes and that way I have a set of shocks with both pistons in them and can try them and see what I like. The track I race at now has monster traction. Inddor asphalt.

Build the 3holes with Tamiya 400 oil and the 2holes with 300, then run them back to back and check out your laptimes..... you will notice that the 2hole piston will make the car more responsive!

Let us know what you think!!

Cheers,

Right now I run 40wt with the 2 hole so I was going to try 50wt with the 3 hole and the rest of my setup I will leave the same since I know how it works. The track we run has monster traction for asphalt. Nothing like I have ever ran on.

Default Oil weights

I run on medium grip asphalt and run 2 holes in front wht 35wt & 2 holes in rear with 40. Car really digs in on the corners and Chicanes. I am easily the fastest in and out of turns at our track. I am also using yellows front and rear with read stabilizers front and rear. I have abother set of srpings on order and plan on trying softer spring with thicker oil to see what kind of action I get. Right now the car is dialed as hell.



Eirik, have you guys experimented with a center oneway and a front dif? I have been using this setup for a few weeks and the car is much more predictable.

I might do 40wt with 3 holes that way I will have a good comparison if I use the same oil but different piston. I might get a better feeling that way.

Just a FYI, Tamiya yellow 400 included in the kit is closer to 30wt.
