Are you running that setup exactly or are there some changes?

Also, what is the grip level like of the track? What tyres? Bumps?

Remember I got the 0 rear hubs, so I've only got 1.5, which I don't think is a lot really. To be honest, I've never tried any less than that on any of my cars, but I've always been racing mod, I've only been doing 19T since recently.

Does anyone else have issues with the screw-in hingepins on the lightweight suspension? Basically, it seems that if the pins were held in by setscrews, this would minimize wear in the rear for those of us running aluminum hubs, as the hub is currently wearing against the pin rather than the pin wearing out the hole in the arm. This also seems to be a major cause of the slop in both the front and rear of the car.

I switched to the Evo4 styles pins with the grub screw for my MSX, and I deffiently think it's an improvement. I did find the pins to be quite tight in the arms, so just ran a drill bit through the holes, and that solved the prob.

Mr-s413bt; which setup was it? Also, what tyres etc.

I'd say that you may want to try narrowing the track width of the front and rear of the car. I am using XB X for the rear with 1 degree hubs at the moment and the car works nicely. Also using C A on the front as the swept arms having given a bit more mid corner steering. I'm still lacking steering a bit, but the car is ultra consistent. You could also try raising the rear toe blocks evenly by 1mm. When I get a chance, I will write out my setup and PM you.

Just ran into this post. I was working on my car trying get it setup for the SoCal GrandPrix. I am running the MSX kit, and read a few posts here about the steering problem. I think I have found a minor design flaw in the 415, that the EVO4 (I also own) doesn't have. Look at the carbon link for the two aluminum, center steering arms. On the 415 the outer bolt heads that hold the ball stud hit the aluminum arm before the steering knuckle car go full lock to the left and the right. I had my car all set up last night, and was going through the EPA on my radio when I noticed it hitting the bolt, and not turn all the way. I have tried repositioning the carbon bracket with no luck. The only thing I can think of is to somehow extend out the bracket about 3-4mm and adjust the toe accordingly it will allow the arm to go full lock to lock. I am also considering tapping a ball stud to the top of the plastic hub, and seperating the hub carrier bolts, from the steering knuckle. I suspect under load there is a binding effect going on here.
