If you have experience with foams please help me ....
Thank you in advance to all !
Outdoor Modified TC on foams is the main class at my local tracks. I will look at my setup and make a pdf for you tonight. It's worked pretty well for me and I'm leading the points series with almost the same setup from day one.

The reality is running foams on asphault has so much traction it almost doesn't matter what your setup is....the cars just stick.

Default Foam tires on 415

What foams is everyone using? I put on a set of Parma and the front wheel is hitting/rubbing the knuckle's servo arm big time. Thanks.

If you run the stock 415 any foam should just about work. If you use the 415MS or 415 w/ LW suspension you have to run the HPI Pro4 knuckles. That will give all the clearance you need.

I run my 415 w/ LW suspension this way and can fit Parma, TRC, Jaco, GQ, ect, ect...

Go to the Tamiya US website, then to the TRF Information Center. They have some setups in there.

Do the pro 4 knuckles use the same bearings as the tamiya ones? Also are they a good choice for repacement if you cant get the tamiya ones?

If I'm not wrong,the bearing used on the pro4 knuckles are larger than the Tamiya.Meaning that its heavier,but on the plus side its more enduring than the tamiya ones.

SOmeone verify my statement for me...Thanks...

Yes, the Pro 4 hubs use a larger bearing.

You will need 5x10 bearings.

So yes they are larger and probably a bit more durable then the stock setup. I've heard that other racers are using them even if they don't run foams to get a bit more steering and/or durability.

I know some of the TRF drivers uses them.

Do they really give that much more steering??Do they use it when they use a spool or the normal front one way??

Thanks for any info.

I do believe that David Spashett and Adam Rogers used them at the KO GP, and Marc R at the euros used the Pro4 Hubs. If you look at there cars, the steering links are in the rearward holes, whilst the hubs themselves distinctly look like the pro4 ones.
Actually waiting on response to the Q about the advantage of them...
