Previosuly ran A-B on front with 5mm hexs, but I found the 46mm bones were too long, so made the switch to B-C with 4mm hexs to try and keep the track the same.
Used locked centre pulley and spool aswell.

What spool you using ? 46mm bones shouldn't be too long with any spool with those blocks on.

The original one-way lubricated with epoxy resin, lol. Its from the original 415, I thought I read somewhere that the outdrives for use with the LW suspension was different.
Trying to get hold of a Tir spool, but they haven't emailed me back, as for the tamiya one, only got 1 good outdrive left....

Ok I'm confused and since I'm gonna get a MSX soon I should ask. David used Pro4 arms on his car, but why? What does it do for the car? And what parts do you need to make it work?

David:
From what I understand, the HB/hpi arms on the car make it better for indoors on carpet, mainly with rubbers I beleive due to slightly different length and shock mounting positions
. As the inner hinge pin on the 415 and the pro 4/cyclone is the same, its just a case of dropping and shimming the HPI arms (with hubs etc) onto the car. I think you need the cyclone axles to do it aswell as the bearings for the hubs.

Yeah the outdrives for the std 415 are different, you'd want to use 42mm bones. As for your setup, if you were round stafford i wouldn't recomment anything else than 3 deg rear toe in mod.

If I were you i'd just wait for the new wishbones that are coming out, I reckon they'll sort the issue on carpet. If you're racing anything else than carpet rubber keep the LW.

Well if it was very bad i'd check my hinge pins for straightness.

I'll do that aswell. I had also change the front wheel base (moved the arms 1mm back) in a practice session before yesterday. Do you think moving them back forward 1mm to take some weight off the front end would make it better?

Can you tell me if this spool can be used in msx?

http://www.hobbymania.com.hk/eng/more.asp?id=424
TA05 Front Direct Coupling

I would like to use standard diff pulley or one way pulley (black).

I'm looking for this spool because i can't find spool that is made for msx.
