The 1XD is much smaller, smallest I believe (or narrowest).

Hi,
Jilles i was having problem with the car pushing and lacking in mid corner steering what are the first things you try, to stop the car from pushing and to provide the car with more turn in and mid corner.
thanks,
jake

Dear Jilles.
First of all, thank you for this work you do with tamiya owners, sharing your knowledgments with us and also Merry Christmast.
Past days, i received my new 417X and I hope you share asphalt setups with start to work or proben setups that works in low to medium grip asphalt.
Do you try ride soft springs?
Thank you very much another time!

Hi Jilles, have you run the 417x on carpet yet?? If so what are some of the changes you are doing?? I am running on a high bite carpet track. Thank you for any input.

Shame you couldn't make it out to the ATS, really fun event, although carpet was a real struggle, hopefully Marc had some good running there on the monday after. Did manage to get the car working ok by the end of the weekend, basically raising the front roll-centre and widening the front to kill the excess of steering. Also going (like your 'birds) setup, with long links and softer oil.... all a bit alien to me after the last time I ran on rug!

Still, looking forward to TITC, very interested to see what setup you come up with before the event

Cheers
Ed
Thanks for sharing your thoughts at ATS race. Will have some basic set-up soon for TITC!

Thank you for the info reagrding your MO5 from TITC this year. I have another question. Since the Ride Inch up Rims are offset by 2mm did you change the spacers on the front and rear hubs or did you use 4mm hexes instead.

On another note, I have been testing my FWD car, with the new TITC control tyre for next year and I am finding the car letting go at the rear very easily. I have tried softening the rear and running the front wider. What do you suggest. I struggled tonight on a high grip track and the car was tailly all the time. The rear wanted to swap with the front. I removed the front and rear swaybars, laid the rear shocks over, altered the roll centres and adjusted droop. The only thing I haven't tried yet is making the front shocks stiffer by using heavier oil.

Any advice appreciated.

Regards,

Calvin.
For the hex I use 5mm front + 1mm shim in the rear I use 4mm hex because wider will touch the inside of the body when cornering. Also wider front drives much easier with the ride tyres.
For the FF03 I will post a set-up soon as I will look for set-up sheet for FF. My FF03 has been very good and stable. I use harder spring in the rear and seems to be more stable with this. HPI blue front and HPI pink in the rear.

1XD is the most narrow suspension block. Here all blocks from short to most long. 1XD - 1XC - 1XB - 1XA - 1X - 1A - 1B - 1C - 1D - 1E - 1F
Every step is 0.5 degree different. Hope this helps.

You can try to use inboard toe out in the front by using 1B-1D for example.
This gives more caster while cornering result in more steering mid corner.
Also try anti dive in front.

Thanks, no problem. For the set-up you can use the basic set-up and try to use softer spring for low traction. For low traction I recommend using double suspension mounts and use split motormount in any condition.
I did run the ride spring, feel similar to HPI but HPI feels little more traction.

My Snowbird set-up from last year was really good, you can try that as starting point.

I used the stock geardiff, I use glue around the outside to avoid the gum coming out!

Hello Jilles,

Have you tried the Ride Control tyre for TITC 2012 on your FWD car yet? I tried some here in Australia on a high grip track and found the car would get very tail happy, due to the soft inserts in the tyres. I found I had to stiffen the front and soften the rear.

Has your setup for this years TITC at RC Addict with these tyres changed much?

Thank you,

Regards,

Calvin.
