Hi Jilles,

Thanks for the reply, its great that a team driver can take the time to answer questions, one of the main reasons i bought the 416WE.

I spoke with a few of the other drivers from this event (Aust titles) and a couple did try your TITC Worlds set up, but most agreed that running heavier shock oils made the car worse, some have told me they ran only 2 deg rear toe and 2mm of shims under the arms (roll centre change), can you please share your experiance with these changes on a hot track, thanks for your time.

Regards

Rhys

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!

I ended up running 40 weight oil with zero rebound and soft sway bars all round at the Aust Titles. Car was very well behaved and only over heated the tyres in one heat (Shortened the rear sway bar link)

I found that u needed to soften the car up to make it bite on that surface.

Tim

Jilles,
The Australian titles track was not covered in traction compound like the 2008 worlds track was, and Sweep 40's were used. Would that make a difference?

Hi Jill,

Need your advice base upon experiences on stock motor 11.5 T.

Of all the brands below how they fare against each other for example
1. Speedpassion
2. Team Power
3. Orca
4. Team Orion.

To what I was told Team Power stock motor has more torque? What about the others. I do believe they have some plus points too.


Thanks,

Hi everyone.

What does installing o-rings on the shock shaft like on this picture of Victor Wilcks' car do?

I thought it was used to set rebound. They keep you pushing the shock shaft up all the way while screwing on the lid...
