To add to the inconvience it put too much pressure of the plastic blade, and I constantly have to change it(Blade breaKs or get distorted).

I got the car second hand, and I'm not sure if the previouse owner changed parts to suit his "setup" or what. Is there anything obviouse that I'm missing, and can you give me the part numbers that you use for the Diff spring, Aluminum diff joints, and any other parts neccessary to rebuild the diff to a usable state.

With the way i've got the car setup I need between -1 to -1.5 degrees of camber for it to work properly. In short if I can't fix this, my car is going to continue to be a handful to drive. PLEASE HELP!!

Thanks in advance for your time. Hope to hear from you at your earliest convience.
When I ran the 416 with that setup I just removed some of the material on the diff nut with a round file, as long as you stay on center of the bolt hole and don't take a lot off the nut so the ears are weakened you should be good. If you run any narrower than what you have you'll have to go to the shorter axles.

jilles: the MTCC race was great. had a good turnout (see the results in the Manila forums here in rctech) which what made it a great event for us. It was a bit tiring personally since i basically organized and ran the race but there were guys who were there always willing to lend a helping hand during the race like Ralph, Ronchie, Greg and the other guys. Its always hard to race and race direct at the same time but it was all worth it seeing the guys enjoy the race and we got great support from the local hobby shops in terms of prizes. Maybe next time you can join just for the fun of it. As for TITC, I am still not 100% on that. But I really wanna go. Just have to work out my schedules here as it's difficult to leave work just like that.... but we'll see! Good to hear all is good with you new family! Yes, all the lack of sleep is always worth it!

Hi Jilles,
Congrats! Hope the family is all doing well.

Thanks again for all the advice over the years, was great to meet you earlier in the year at the TC Euros. Hopefully the little one doesn't keep you away from the track too much longer!

Good luck in 2011, hopefully I'll meet you again trackside somewhere!

Oli

Hi Jilles,

Congrats with your baby.

I've some questions:

1. Is it suggested to drill a hole in shock top cap and put blue O ring for a little rebound setting in indoor rubber carpet?

2. I'm using Sorex tire and Hara V2 insert for outdoor racing. The shcok is 0 rebound, 3 holes piston, TRF blue O ring insert, a hole drilled in the top cap. But I find that there is too rolling in the corner, even if the oil is 700......

My suspension blocks are C/C amd XA/E with 0.5 or 1mm spacer.

Is the 0 rebound setting is not suitable to Sorex? Would you please give some ideas?

3. About the damper, A car's damper is 3 holes with 60wt oil, B car's is 2 holes with 45wt oil. If A and B have the similar rolling status in the corner. What's the performance difference between these two different dampers?

Thanks and Best Rgds

Jilles, congratulations on your child, do not know if this is your first child, now you need a good setup for fast changing baby diapers, it's time that to let us help you.

Greetings, Luis C.

Nope, they aren't the same... especially the bulkheads & motor mount mounting area. 417 is 2mm narrower than the 416 Lipo chassis.

Hi there,

I have too found that drilling the hole in the shock cap makes the car really mellow and rolls allot with Sorex tires.
For me I have found this setup to be the fastest with sorex tires:

Red foam on top of bladder cut too 3mm, no hole inn cap, 550wt oil, 3 hole pistons. Make sure you build the shock with as little rebound as possible.
The red foam is to support the bladder so that it wont collapse during heavy cornering. I have found this gives more steering and more corner speed.

For carpet, take the foam thing out, this gives more initial traction and is better suited for carpet racing.

Cheers,
Eirik

why not use an o-ring instead?

Where do you get the red foam to use on the shock bladder below the cap?

When I cut the foam to 3mm it is the perfect thickness, the bladder will just slightly move. The O-ring is only 2mm, so the bladder will move more.
