Hey Andrew,
If it's any help, there are a few setups on my site for Beddy, one at least from the TORC round, along with Ben C's setup he used to win the BRCA Nat with in '04.
One thing thats good to try (if you've got the blocks) is too narrower the front end down, by running A/A. You'll need the optional A-Bridge block to run it though. I found this really helped keep the nose in tight on the sweeper off the straight.

HiH
Ed

Is anyone running the solid front diff with the one way center shaft on asphalt? What are your findings with this setup?

Exactly this is the right position. When mounting just make sure you position the flat spot on the heatsink beam toward the diff pulley other than that it doesn´t work.

HiH
Ed
Thanks again,

I have already been on your website actually. I looked at both setups and decided to copy Ben's first of all to see where that lands me. I've got the shock setup as his now and it feels really hard, particularly in comparison to my TC4. My car is somewhere between Ben's and yours it would seem as you have different suspension blocks and shock towers I think.

I have noticed quite a few complications while building the car which I wondered what other people did to solve;

By running the LWT suspension with 46mm driveshafts it would appear that these are just so slightly too long - as with the one way installed the shafts touch the rubber O-rings that the manual suggests you install. To combat this I took the O-rings out, but would rather have then in to pro-long the life of the shafts and outdrives

With the LWT arms being slightly narrower from front to back the shimming suggested in the manual is obviously out - how have you shimmed yours? I just tried to make the arm slightly forward or back in its stance depending upon the original suggestion if that makes sense - but obviously with more spacers.

I have bought a spool as this is what I almost exclusively used to run in my TC4 - I can't run this with a one way lay shaft pulley can I? This would surely just act as a coupled one way wouldn't it?

Ben likes hard suspensions setups, but he has the ability to take the advantage of it without being disturbed by the disadvantages.

your problem with the shafts, is it with the original's 415 one way outdrives (that are offset to make up for the narrower one way housing compared to the TRF 414's) or the normal ones as on the TRF 414 ?

Hi

Does anyone run Pro 4 rear hubs and stearing knuckles? I have heard that Marc R use's them. What advantage would this give?

Thanks

Using the rear hubs was something I was told they did before to be able to use 0deg rear hubs. Now with the new 0deg aluminum rear hubs from Tamiya I'm sure you won't see any Pro4 pieces on team cars. I'm not 100% sure if Tamiya makes 0deg plastic hubs so it's a good alternative if you want to use them.


I've never known anyway to use the Pro4 knuckles on rubber tires...the only real reason to switch to Pro4 knuckles would be if you run 28mm foams for carpet racing. Those give you the clearance to run them.
