Oh okay.... food for thought. With this amount of tunability on this car, there's always SOMETHING to test. I really found the car worked well with the RCManiax spool I bought as the car remained ultra stable and still good through most of the corner aside from the massive understeer in turn-in. I'm trying Eirik's setup firstly at Winterchamps and I'll see how that goes. I will change the car accordingly throughout the meet no doubt.

Yes I will have to give those spools a go sometime on friday, see how they work. I can't understand how you are having stability probs with the LW sus, I found it too stable when I used it.

RCMANIAX: Do you have both front and rear carbon mid decks? If so, how much?

It has to be a Tamiya part for TCS racing. You will have to wait until the Tamiya 415 spool is available later this year.

The new spool should be in the States in a month or so. Same for other countries.

Atomic missed you on Saturday, I will be in Portland this coming weekend. Not sure if you saw the info on the new track in Kent by IKEA also. Oh and loving the 16% on the Mini mmmm boost

www.rainbowten.co.jp

Go to search and type 415 and the spool should be on top of the list.
price is 3000 yen, comes in at $ 27.56 USD. Rainbowten doesn't have a shopping cart and checkout system you email them with all the stuff you want, they process and include shipping then they send a PayPal money request.

very easy to deal with and very cheap prices.

Hi Guys,
Haven't posted for a while... then again haven't raced in a while.
Been working on a DJ suspension setup a bit more.... defiently been getting on with it better now. ie going faster

One thing now though... I am certainly having trouble with my RC maniax spool, can't seem to make the blades last more than 4 runs, which is starting to get a little expensive. It was even worse at bumpy Broxtowe, was just able to get 2-3 runs out of a pair... problem is, I love the way it performs, so at the moment, I'm just plugging through.
I've tried greasing the blades with Serpent Anti-wear grease, AE Black grease, although, I haven't used spin grease though yet, have some on order. I've even tried using some modified Schumacher blades (had to use a larger hole), but one fell off after one run, and they are a bit thinner than the Corallys.
So quite simply, HELP!

Later
Ed

I had the same problem with my 415, constantly eating up blades! My solution? Went back to the Speedtech spool!

I can vouch for that as well. Rainbow Ten is the place for Tamiya stuff, especially if you are in Australia. Go the extra cost for EMS shipping, and you will get it in three working days if they have the part in stock. If they don't, it doesn't take them long to get it in.

That might have something to do with R10 being literally next door to one of the Tamiya warehouses, and right rext door to the Shizuoka Tamiya test track. Would be a very kool place to live

Ed,

I have only broken one set off blades and that's because I went flat out into the wall, LOL!

I have raced three races now with the same set of blades and they are showing only slightly wear!!

Are you sure you dont crash too much?

Do they break or just get sloppy??
