Kind of hard to explain, so you better try it on your car and then you will fully understand what I mean
I experienced this at the weekend... was running the outer hole on the rear hub to start with, but car was very difficult to drive off power, would suddenly snap put mid turn if I let the throttle off too fast. I moved the link in one hole and this solved that problem.

I believe that the reason it has more stability is due to having more camber change over the wheels travel... although I could be wrong.

You are absolutely right Ed! Longer rear link will give you allot more turn inn, it will be a litle more stable on power....
It's more stable because the longer link will make the suspension more roll stiff.

By looking at that photo above, different layshaft and diff pulley, new steering rack, which means a new chassis and top plate, I'd say we are in for something towards the end of 2006. Lets just hope the 4mm chassis is released with the new hole patterns.

THis car just keep getting better and better

Would just like to ask a question, is Tamiya 415 durable? If possible make a comparison between other cars especially tc3. What is its possible weak points where parts might break? or to rephrase, what are the essential spare parts needed for this car? Need help because I'm planning to get a new touring car and 415 is one of my choices. Thanks for the help in advance.

Is definatley one of the most durable...trust me, when I hit the boards stuff usually goes flying...

The car is most duarable for indoor racing with the standard suspension arms. Using this set-up still allows you to run foam tires without any modifications.

Our track here is outdoor, and rubber tires are used. Most of the racers here use Xray's. Can you give some more opinions about this car? . I have a tc3 and I hate always fxing my car again and again. I even almost lost my patience just today at our race fixing my tc3 that seems to break often.
