Jilles,

Do you run your servo horn at a specific angle, or do you make it perpendicular to the chassis as the instructions specify?

Well it was not a TQ, but second! Thanks anyways!

Lynx75.
Thanks, hope you will enjoy your new ride!

Tom,
See you in the weekend!

IQ0,
At the moment my Nosram Pearl Speedo with my Speed Passion motors is great and this is the right combo for me!

94eg!,
I run my servo saver little towards the inside, 90 degree with the servo link.
This makes more equal left and right steering throw.

This weekend I will be in Luxembourg, will be back on tuesday!

Jonest,

Well with brush motors I always used the cooler before a race, with brushless
i not really feel any differents. I think stock BL motors like 10.5 are getting more hot then 3.5 modified so it might help for stock.

Thnak's for the answer

In Pro Stock class you recommend to have some rebound in shocks and use sponge?
And about the balance of the car. My 416 weight 1395g. To get perfect ballance R/L i must put 20g on the battery side. And in Pro Stock class it's better to have 20g less in the car or have perfect ballance on the track?

Thank's

I wouldnt worry too much about 35g, you'd probably want to be at 1510 just to be sure you don't get dq'd. A low profile servo and spektrum micro rx will get you under if you aren't already running them

I have the Titanium and Aluminium screws on the top. All cable is maximum short. And some part I modify by myself. 1395 is with normal body. Think when a try lightview i save next 30g.

Hi Jilles,
maybe are commonplace questions but let me ask as follows :

What are commons spare parts to have with you during tests/races, please?

What are usual parts to replace after some tests/races, please?

Just to understand what I need to have to keep my TRF 416 WE in a good condition.

Thank you for all,
lynx75.

Thanks Jilles.

Another problem, how do you remove the spool? I'm having difficulties in getting the blue ring out of the spool cup. Any tips or trick?

Thanks.

hi bro,

nice run this morning too bad it was raining we didnt get to finish e 3rd main. and py and myself we usually cut the front of the spool cup n dispose it. if ya thinking of recycling it i'll advice ya to use a plier n clip the cup to push the collar out but bit hard. just remember when ya mount the new cups cut e corner of e cups a abit those 4 corners cut it around 45dec each. it will be easier to take it out next time.

hi Jilles...

your outdoor rubber set up, really makes my car handled very good yesterday in my National Series.
but i noticed my car very understeer until i change my rear spring with Tamiya blue. i use xray 700cst shock oil (fr/rr).

how is gaining front grip, without reducing rear grip???
