I don't believe Tamiya makes 0 degree hubs. At least not for the EVO IV anyway.

Tamiya does make 0 deg. rear uprights for the LW suspension. They come standard in the Evo 4 MS and are available seperately.

I run a D6 12 turn on my 415, can anyone help with the rollout figures for this motor, or suggest a suitable gear ratio, I am running a 102 tooth spur and 32 tooth pinion

thanks

What amount of spacers are people running behind the arms at the fron when using the 3mm chassis and the LW arms? The same goes for the back as well how many spacers between the block and the arm at the front of the back.

Hi Rick,

I'll give yo a better answer. On the MS chassis, they moved only the blocks facing the centre of the chassis.

So, just keep the same amount of spacers you had on the MS for the back of the rear wishones and the front of the front wishbones and shim the other side in consequence.

On my car i've got the following :

rear wb : back 3 mm, front 5 mm

front wb : back 6 mm, front 1.5 mm

hope this helps

I need help again!

I have the lightweight suspension, and I broke the front knuckles.

I thought I had some, but I had ordered the wrong ones.

Can someone tell me a part number or direct me to the right place so that I can order some

are these the right ones?

Thanks!!

Also, should i be running the 46mm drive shafts on the front with the lightweight suspension?

Only the 42 popped out during my race....I guess I could be answering my own question here.

The pro4 rearhubs and steeringknuckles can be considered to be spoolparts when running rubbertires on asphalt. At the euros a month ago almost all the teamguys used them. The steeringknuckles allows you adjust the rollcenter and the rearhubs have different rollcenter too which give increased steering. As a bonus the hubs uses bigger and more durable 10x5 bearings. Below is a link with pictures of Steen Graversens where you can see the HPI parts.

Has anyone ever put the rod guide in the bottom of the TRF shocks in the wrong way? What happened?
