Overall I think both are very capable. With my current setups the 415LW seems to corner much better. As for the durability I'm actually surprised at how well the LW bits have held up. Before I owned ithe LW parts I thought they would be fragile. Now having run 8T mods on carpet and asphault I see it's very durable.

If you want to try something different or are concerned about the smaller bearings with the LW suspension....use Pro4 knuckles with 4x10 bearing (i think that's the size). With that you just need about a 1mm shim on top of the knuckles to fit snug in the c-hub.
1050 bearing

What type of servo are you running, motor and wheel (foam or rubber)?
The way I got some more front steering on my car was to put the ball connector for the steering arms on the outside spot on the front uprights, dial a little more rear toe-in and about 1.5 deg of front toe out. Since getting the digital servo, the car pretty well turns nicely now. Leaving the ball connector on the inside hole seemed to make the car too twitchy.

What style of front drive are you running (i.e, one-way, Spool or Diff) ?

You might want to try adding some more spacers under the front upper inner link, I usually run at least a 4mm spacer, it will raise the front roll center quite a bit and I find it makes the car turn a lot better.

If you are running some anti-dive, get rid of that and dont run any anti dive.

you might want to add some anti-squat, and maybe try decreasing the rear droop.

if you are running harder springs on the front, go back to the Tamiya yellow kit springs, front and rear, they seem to work very well and are a great starting point on asphalt.

The front upper link is just the front camber link. Here is a Pic-

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't what you are saying raising the front roll center??
