Default dj suspension and a locked front diff

Hi

I was wondering what the handling of a 415 is like with the Dj suspension and a spool.

i drive on reasonably high grip asphalt and wanted to fit a spool but wasnt sure if the spool causes the car to understeer as our local track is quite tight, can anyone recommended any setup tips?

thanks heaps

Mark. R's set-up sheet for carpet racing mentions a 2.2mm sway bar. Anyone make different size swau bars for the car or do we have to make our own.

Jimmy" I agree, the delay in releasing the 4mm chassis has discouraged me from racing carpet. I'm already starting to pull out the nitro stuff.

It's actually 0.8mm Eirik. This is for the MS chassis (with the shorter hingepins). I measured it the other day, there is 43mm between the centre of the screws of the blocks... the rest I figured out via trig

Have to say though... what a pain in the ass number that is!

Nice homework Ed!!

I just remembered from running the Pro4 it was 0.6mm on that car and assumed it was aprox. the same on the LW suspension...

Oh yeah, 0.8mm is not the easiest number to work with, but with a 0.7mm washer your pretty close!

Or use a .030 motor shim. That is about as close to 0.8mm you will get.

0.8mm=0.0315 in.
0.030 in.=0.762mm

And the motor shim will fit a 3mm screw as it is 0.125" ID (3.175mm)

Also remember that with the way the shims are stamped you might beable to find oversized ones that are dead on.

I would guess that since I've seen a number of drivers at the race in Thailand using the new steering rack system...it won't be long before it comes to market. Great, another hop-up part....

Carl at Reeedy last year the Japanese part of TRF all had Associated swaybars on the car. My guess is that is the 2.2mm you are seeing. If you look at the pics of the Team cars they have a crooked end to the sway bar.

The thickest bar that is made for the TC3 is .078 in. (1.98mm). Others are .055in. (1.40mm) and 0.063in. (1.60mm). BRP used to make a 0.090in. (2.286mm) but it is no longer on their webpage. (www.brpracing.com)

I'm actually considering goin to Thailand next year (instead of Snowbirds). It would be a nice vacation and something totally different for me. Anyone know if the 23t motors they use for this race is standup or laydown brushes? I wouldn't mind buying one to play around with this year.

Something new to try out. I believe they are from the TA05.
