Do you have any preferance for suspension indoor on rubbers?
I've tried both and I prefer the LW. I also use a one way when the track's grippy and not too twisty (at sharley park i use a spool). I haven't broke a single wishbone in about 8 months using the LW on the car, only part to break has ben a C-Hub and the hit was bad (hit a pipe sticking out in the straight, outdoors with a 10T in, car stopped dead, only a C-Hub broke). So much for the so called lack of durability, but i'm not telling you anything you dont know here.

As for making the A in stock, I wouldn't expect anything less than that from you mate. Oh yeah, you gotta win this year

Well, at the moment, I'm running the LWT suspension on my MSX at the moment, haven't tried it with the Std setup yet. I do like having the extra tuning options for the shock positions though.

On my older car, I ran with the old suspension.. but that was more from a durability point of veiw (Maritime on a thursday can be a bit rough at times ). Maybe some point soon I'll put the old suspension on and do a back to back...

HiH

Lighter than the alloy ones and strong enough to use in the front with a spool or a oneway unlike the alloy ones. That are the other way around to the standard tamiya ones like the MIP design.

Thanks for the help with the setups.

Big thanks to Martin C and the rest that replied regarding setup for my 415. I was the only one running Tamiya cars at the first round of our West Canadian Indoor Champ Series. The car was ultra fast with the GTB Brushless. Couldnt make run time on my GP3300's, but a loaned IB 3800 worked superb (thanks JJmudd). It was soon aparent that i havent spent enough time in the mod division lol. I made the A final tho, and got to around 4th or 5th, but a stupid mistake put me sideways in a fast area of the track and next car came through and took off the left rear tyre. But still, had an AWESOME weekend. Totally hooked on the 415. Mine is a Std 415, has alloy rear uprights, i ran front spool and centre one way, only because its all i had. But martin, your setup was spot on. I ran it to the letter in your setup and was impressed. When my driving improves, my car will be very competitive.

A few pics of the car, last one is the end result of the final

I have them on my car with the TIR pro 4 axles which they can supply you as a complete set. Awesome piece of kit.

Another note, those with the pro 4 hubs, any of you running the pro 4 castor blocks as well or keep the std tamiya ones?

I believe the pro4 caster blocks or the tamiya ones use a pin that is 0.1mm larger than the other so you would need to make the hole bigger in one or the other.

Yeah, I've ordered these too - I mentioned this a few pages back. I've found Darren to be very helpful.

Yeah, and 27.99 a pair ! I prefer to keep on changing my steel bones on the front and alloy on the rear every 50ish runs...
