Rick: With those square front knuckles, can you fit 28mm foams without mod. I saw a picture some time ago on this thread with foams and knuckles that looked like that but forgot to ask then.

I can answer that, i got them too. No you can't they're the same as the LW suspension and just have another hole for the steering turnbuckle. With the 5mm hexes 24mm rims comes very close to the knuckle, i'm using a 0.5mm spacer in there to prevent rubbing.

Hello,

Reduce front droop to 5.0mm, lower the front reide height to 4.5mm, move your front shocks inn one hole on the tower and put a red rear swaybar on/run without any swaybar at all.

This will help allot with your problem and make the car more balanced!!

Default 415 Setup

Hey guys the tires i am using are CS-22's which are less then a week old.

So you want me to incrase the Droop to 5.0 mm in the front and have the rear at 4.5 mm? Why such a huge amount of droop? Usually i run 1.5 in the front and 2.0 mm in the rear.
BTW i have been racing for 7 years now so i know my setup game with tweaking the car and balance so that isnt the problem.

Hi guys, i've finally got round to ordering a Tamiya MSX for Xmas . I was wondering what is the biggest (or something near the biggest) 48dp spur gear that can fit and what make of spurs fit (i can get RW and Kimborough easily) also how does the DJ pro suspension affect the handling of the car .

Thanks, Charles

more droop 1.5 to 2mm is like a foam setup at 1.5 and 2 for rubber its not moving enough weight yes 1st set your camber then set the ft ride H at 5mm and 5mm droop set the rear ride H at 5.5mm 4mm droop and you will see ...7yrs OK r u on the same lap as the fast guys or the same lap times ? what kind of carpet ?
