Default HB Springs

Gday from Australia,

I read a lot about people using about the HB Silver(#6543) / Blue Springs(#6542). Are they actually the HPI Pro4 Springs?

I have a good range of the normal HPI Touring Springs (27x13.5, #6846 13.8, #6847 14.8, #6849 15.2, #6850 16.9) and was wondering what the major difference is other than length (25mm v 27mm)?

Hi Jilles,

What will you change from the basic asphalt set up for a small,high traction and lots of conrner track? Add more RC in order to get more respond or reduce RC in order to get more grip at conrners as my car is still a bit push during the double apex? Thank you.

Hi Jilles

Just wanted to say thanks for the help and setup advice given on this thread, its helped me go faster with this car than I thought possible (well for my thumbs anyway!) I'm now just down to a few tenths per lap off the leaders at my local club and am very happy with the Tamiya.

Just one question about tyres though, should you run the hardest compound you can get away with or the softest?

Cheers again!

Paul

I'm not Jilles, but I would say hardest to try to keep tire wear down.

Hello Guys,

Sorry for late reply.

3,1415926
The reason I used 0.5mm and 1mm front is to get better cornerspeed.
I tried first 0mm and 0,5mm but the car didn't kept the speed in the fast corners as good as with 0.5mm and 1mm.

Ed,
I think for tracks like Halifax this will work great.

CraigM,
As I explain to 3,1415 already with the rollcenter in front.

Sudhar93,
For 11,5T I suggest a gearing around 4.5
As far as I know Tamiya has no plans yet for a new TC as the current 416 isn't bad! Haha! Not sure if they make a new batch.

kschu,
I never really played with shims for bumpsteer, the standard 0.5mm works best in my opinion. I will do some tests for this at the Euros track in Luxembourg in a few weeks.

Sunny,
For tracks with a lot of traction the balance of the car is little more pushing.
To improve steering I suggest to narrow the car front and rear, c/c and XB/1E
Also lay in the shocks in the rear. Harder spring also helps.
The new LTC-R body shells has good steering.

Jonest,
I have been in contact with Hupo Honigl about off-road and he says for shock set-up use shock oil between 25-40W, standard piston. But ofcourse depends on surface.

Paul,
Thanks!
I think you should look around and check what the fast guys are using for tyres/wheels and inserts. Inserts and wheels can be also as important as tyres. Sometimes a harder tyre is faster even when the track conditions are cool. Ofcourse with 24R tyres you will be really fast when they are new but they might fail during the run as they wear out very fast.

It is a shame that parts availability of the 416 is so hard to come by and that is one single reason why I decided to junk Tamiya for another marque, sorry, I want to keep my kit running all the time.

I have a 415 MSX and installed the new short arms. Should I be looking at setup sheets for the 415 or following setups in this thread?
