I've used three this season Alan, the Pro Comp from Titanium Racing, the Tamiya One and the one from Shooters Racing.

Scott Meichan swears by the TiR one so I'd have to trust him on it - I've found all to be quite good to be honest, although the Tamiya is a little weak.

You didn't say what blocks your running. I'm assuming your using the blocks that the kit says to use. Consider using narrower blocks. I remember when I got my original 415 and my car handled the say way yours did and the narrower blocks front and rear made the biggest difference in the on power handling coming out of a turn! TRY IT YOU'LL LIKE IT!

Default 415 suspension help

"7yrs OK r u on the same lap as the fast guys or the same lap times ? what kind of carpet" I win and TQ with this set-up and i have really fastlap times but its soooo hard to control around the track.I work a sweat to keep the throttle control right and steering input smooth.
I can handel any car but i pefer a car with its ass end planted so i can hammer on the throttle coming out of the corner.

The type of carpet is Ozite, but its not the CRC type. Its some cheap type the produces alot of fuzzzzzzz.

Your right about the extra droop it will give more weight transfer from one end to the other. See i am slowly understanding everything, you would think 7 years of experience i would have this game of setup downpacked. lol

"narrower blocks front and rear made the biggest difference"
Are you talking about the Aluminum Suspension Blocks?
What do they look like.

Thanks

Edward Pickering.

Arrow sure

u need to be the range of 3.77 3.92 thats 102/27 102/26 your track size will chage the ratio as well all I can say is see what u have in 48 pitch to get close the this ratio keep your motor around 130 to 140 deg....

Has anyone been able to have a super stiff 3 or 3.5mm chassis made for carpet? Surely there is enough interest to get some made up. i think as light as this car is, it could be a beast on the carpet. I know Kai used to make a chassis, but it was a fortune. Cough cough BMI cough
