pro 4 arms f/r pro 4 knuckles and caster blocks and pro 4 rear hub carriers 0 degrees i think. You need to check out some of the driver indoor setups on the web

Team driver seem to be faster with it as it run bigger bearings that the LW which allow you to get more corner speed out of the car. also the pivot points are shorter that the Lw by 1mm this mean you have to run wider blocks but helps the car rotate faster in the corners, The evo 5 arm are suppose to stop drivers converting the car to hpi pro 4 arms to make the car work really well indoors.

On tarmac the lw really shines it is one of the easyiest supensions to setup and keep running consistantly. As it is designed for tamac rubber tyres.

I agree. Nearly all the top line chassis from each RC factory is under the 1500g minimum limit out of the factory. Maybe putting lighter components into the drive train, like the RC Square spur holder (anyone tried one of these?) may make the car run more efficent, but at the end of the day you'll still need those lead weights somewhere on the chassis, especially with a personal transponder.

I've ran the Square spur gear adapter. It's a pretty nice unit. I mainly got it since you mount the spur using the "outter" holes for less spur gear warp. Also it's TCS legal as well since it falls under the "any spur gear adapter" rule.

Thanks for bringing that up. I didn't know there were a lot of other drivers in the top 10 using the MSX chassis besides Marc & Josh.

Actually, if you look closely the shock towers are different to the std 415 ones (less holes on the rear, and more upright at the front), plus some of the X blocks with the sale don't have markings on them. If the car is an exTRF team car, then that does support it. I'm not connected to it in anyway, but I wouldn't be suprised if it was... but proto is probably too strong a term for it.
