Kraig,
Thanks for helping me out!

kschu, Senna Racing
I haven't tested that much at the RC Addict track. Also for the TITC they will have a new control tyre, I think it is Much More. Will keep you posted.

Drag-On,
See you soon!

Apex,
I haven't heard the release date of the 416X but I quess very soon.

Juki,
In most conditions the spool works better then a diff. Actually I only ran a front diff when I use foam tyres on carpet as with a spool I have too much steering. Go with the spool this weekend! See you friday!

Jonny123,
I will check with Orion but I quess it's already in the shops!

Jilles

Hi Jilles

I have just raced at the Australian Nationals where the track temps were 60Deg C, all the Tamiya drivers suffered from the tyres overheating quite badly,
We ran on Sorex 36 tyres,med C inserts and Sorex rims, most were using no traction compound with some using tyre tweak with the same results.
Most were using your basic rubber ashphalt setup, can you please post what setup you would use in the hot conditions, the track was medium to high grip.

Thanks

Rhys

What springs were you guys using?

Most of the 416s I saw around the tables were were running HPI springs which cooked the tyres on the TOP when I tried them. I saw an immediate improvement when I switched to the TOP springs of the same weight. Go figure.

We were using 50wt oil and HPI silver springs, between the Tamiya group we tried a lot of different set ups, some were slightly better than others but no real good ones.

Jonny123,
You are right that the motors aren't on the website yet. Some shops have them already in stock.

F-1,
Best temperature is around 75 degree celsius.

Crabboy,
You should have tried the worlds set-up from last year in Bangkok.
Also track temp of over 60 degree. All guys ran 700 or even 800Wt shockoil.
The HPI springs are still the best for asphalt. More things to avoid tyre overheating.

- raise front camber link from 5 to 6mm
- wider front, from c-c to d-d
- LTR body is not so suitable for extreme heat,
I prefer regular Mazda Speed 6.

Hope this helps as normally the Tamiya is the last car who has problems with overheating tyres!

Jilles

Could one type of spring be linear and the other progressive as it is compressed?
