HiH
Ed
Is that with the standard suspension Ed or with the LWT setup?

no,most TRF drivers are using eighter 1d and 1a with 1 degree hubs or 1d and 1x with 0degree hubs or on technical tracks we tend to use 1a and and 1xd.
its one of either of these options.
on fast tracks,we go with the 1st option,on technical tracks we go with the 2nd.
the 1st option puts stability in the rear,and more predictable at high speed.
the 2nd option we use on slower tracks,this gives us better turn in.
of course these are for low-medium grip ashphelt.
i try and saty close to adam rogers and we have both neva used the 1x 1xd opton.seems too narrow

I have it from David himself (along with Pics from the euros and his setp sheet from the KO) that with the MSX they are mostly using the narrower rear end, with the 1 deg hubs, and XD/X on the rear.
I was told that (by david) that this helps to improve the speed of rotation of the rear of the car, at it is equates to around 185mm wide on the rear of the car.

i said most of the TRF drivers,the ones i have talked to,[i havent spoke to david yet]all use the 1a option or 1d option.
i have not got my aluminium 1degree hubs yet but wen they come i will try this option.
also,most TRF drivers,incl. myself,aere using the pro4 knuckles only,not the hubs.
we put a 1mm shim above the nuckle and hub.
adam is using pro4 driveshafts,iam using the standard suspension driveshafts with a lot of shiming.
these hubs do improve steering a lot more.were using the back most hole and not the forward one like on standard lwt set up

0 degrees.
the prob with these is that there is too much of a variation bt the rear most suspension mount to the front one.
5 diffrernt suspesion blocks to get 2.5degrees.
ie,to make 2.5degrees using a 1d at the rear most you need a 1x.
inboard toe is too much to take all of it,the outboard needs to contribute to it.

So should i use my stock rear hubs 1 degree or alloy 0 degree? Today i ordered World Champion set for my 415MS but now i think that is wasn't good idea. Who produce alloy rear hubs 1 degree and alloy steering blocks?

Tamiya makes 1 and 0 degrees hubs.

Square make 0.5 1.5 read hubs, and alloy font hubs.

You can purchase the parts needed coz you can't find the set anymore for sale since it was a limited release & I don't know if someone will sell theirs as well. Or another alternative is to purchase the TB02/TA04 Lt Wt Rev Set. The set pretty much has all the parts needed just like the one for the 415, just labelled as a hop-up part item for the TB02 & TA04 kits. Then you can download the PDF manual for the 415 off from Tamiya USA website. I recently bought the TB02/TA04 set & going to print the manual as I mentioned before & determine which car I'm going to put it on (TRF415 or TRF414M SSG Fully Hopped-up). The kit number for the TB02/TA04 rev arms is 53794.

Hope this helps you out.
