- jonest,
Thanks! Warm-up was pretty good.
This week we will go again for final tests in Germany.

- Francisco,
Most of the time the lightweight works better then regular weight.
However I agree that the wing is too soft, therefor I run a regular weight wing most of the time.

-M3dreamin2008,
I can imagine that on a bumpy parking lot you also crash sometimes.
When you crash most of the time the spoolcup is damaged.
I don't have a solution for this.

-jontang001
I don't know exactly the set-up, but I didn't run any bladder in the shock.
Maybe I write it wrong on the set-up sheet.
99% of the time I run my shocks without rebound, therefor ofcourse without any shims,foams or o-rings on top of the bladder.
I ran 700 because this thick oil works better on a hot surface. It has better balance and it doesn't overheat the tyres. In the evening I could run softer like 550.

Hi Jilles,

how is going out there?

I get this chance to ask you some information about the good way to set-up my 416WE.
I'm little puzzled because everyone give me a suggestion (lucky but not the good way to follow), someone suggested me to remove a shim, add a screw on the top deck or add other shims under the brace link, remove, add...wow this is causing a big caos in my mind

....but I wish to find a way to follow in order to properly set-up my Tamiya.

Please, could you let me know a way to do? Or let me (us) know your way to start to set-up the car.

Any suggestions are appreciate. Thanks a lot....

The XXXMain setup book or Xray setup book are awesome guides for setup. I think studying those and testing will yield the best results.

Hey Jilles,

no problem, you will get to see him in few weeks for the worlds, just send him my greetings

i have a question about the much more shock o-rings, they have them in 30-40-50 degrees!!! is that the hardness of the o-ring and if so, what do you recommend for the Tamyia 84008 shocks??

cheers and good luck

Ali

JGH- What springs do you usually use on asphalt? Do you stick with all Tamiya springs or are there some times where other manufacture springs work a little better?
