Jilles,

Would you say that the majority of top tiered TC guys run similar drag brake settings? Or is it more of a personal preference?

And what do you run and why?

Master Jilles
Thanks for the answer!
I still have some following questions....
I went to see those previous pages in this topic about carpet settings information.
I saw an answer that you said: [For indoor we always use 1 o-ring, the blue Tamiya one with little bit of rebound, 5mm.]

According this answer and the answer you given me yesterday...
1. Does 20% rebound equal to 5mm remainder that you push in the shock pin?
2. Will you drill hole on the top cap of shock on carpet track?
3. The o-ring is on the blander or just in the bottom of the shock?
4. I follow your advise to see your setting at 2010 LRP Masters, why you use 2 o-rings?
I really didn't had much experience on carpet race...
Thanks for your help and patient!!!!

Jon

hi Jilles,

I love to get a trf416x soon. This thread really help a lot. Though the price for a trf416x is really out of reach for some (like myself), but I'm sure this is really a nice piece of machine. Still saving hard

Keep going buddy!!! Good luck on your upcoming races.

p.s. trf416x is really expensive. got an unused chassis?? maybe you can donate to me .Cheers!

Hi Jilles, what does "3mm o-ring" in the setting sheets mean? Is it an o-ring in the shock bladder or shock shaft to limit length? For example in your TITC Mini it says 1pc 3mm o-ring.

Thanks in advance.

Joel

Hi Jilles,

Would you please share some experience of sweep rubber tire on carpet? For example, recommended tire tweak, how to prep the tire before running, thanks.

Default TRF 416 oversteering

Hi Jilles,
my brother and me got the same problem with our 416 WEs.After half a year understeering like normal 416s do,from one to another run we got very hard oversteering.no new tires,changing shock positions,or changing the suspension mount helped.we still run the standart setup.
whats wrong with our cars?

- Stickyfingaz
Dragbrake is a personal preference.
On my Tamiya/LRP speedo I use normally program 3.
I'm sure all topdrivers use a small amount of dragbrake.

- Andy63
I always use a little dragbrake + I use also brake on my radio.
Every corner is different so you can't set only your dragbrake.

- Jon
1. Little rebound is about 50% but the shaft goes very slowly up.
2. I normally use standard top cap for carpet and drill hole for asphalt.
3. I never use anything on top of the bladder.
4. At LRP race I test 2 o-ring in practise and it gave a little more dampening = traction

- Hansonhon
Thanks! I can't help you with a second hand 416 but i'm sure you will find it.

-Joel
In the mini I used an o-ring inside the shock to make the shockshaft shorter, less droop.

-srw_g
I not ran much with the sweep tyres but normally tyre tweak or FX2 works best on this tyre.

-Teamminkya trf
Please share a little bit more info.

-xdunebuggy
This question I cant answer as I don't have much info about tyres, track conditions etc. Please share more detail.

Good luck in Houston Jilles! looks like you are going ok already, hopefully the weather improves

When you are finished playing with the gas cars can you please share your setups from MACH ETS and the Worlds?

Thanks
Craig

Hi, Jilles

About front suspension blocks. What's difference between C/C and B/D? What's rule to choose them in different condition? Thank you.
