I think I will get some new bearings in a few weeks but I'm not totally decided on what I want to get. In no hurry but in the near future I will get some new ones.

There have been a lot of people ask this question of what you need, etc. Yada yada yada. If you read through the last 5 or so pages you will probably find out what you need, as well as the "415 vs evo 4" thread, as Brainteased was also after the Evo IV and was going to be racing 540 too.

Anyway, despite all that, main things you need are:

Aluminium driveshaft cups (front + rear because plastic ones break, even with 540)
Spare 950 bearings
Spare front Uprights + C hubs (i recommend 4 degree)
Spare Rear Uprights
spare Flange Tubes
Spare 2.6mm screw pins
Spare Spurs
Spare Bevel Gears
Spare screws
Spare arms (I only broke my first 1 on Sunday, but even so, you never know)

That is what I would get, but not all of it is absolutely necessary, but there have been some weird accidents out there and you just never know when you will need a spare. Best thing you can do, is not hit anything. Hope this helps!

Oh okay, I am gonna try out that D A at the front also, just need to get the blocks to try it out.

Sounds good, quite a lot of camber I notice though. I seem to be having a ball with 0.5 degree camber. Goes really nicely. Mind you, finding that I have to have a little bit of toe in if anything to keep the car on slight understeer. The car just has so much steering that is amazing. I think its a good thing, because it doesn't understeer, but with only a small change, I made my car really consistent throughout the runs. Once again, the 415s weren't close to me.

hello
while we are on the setup topic
may i ask you guys what camber you guys all running?
the kit setting is negative 3 deg. do electrics need that much camber?

also i've checked the rear alloy up rights! they work out to be 45 AUD a pair! yikes!!!

kera_1
i just brought this car purely for 540!! its not a waste! as when you get tb-02 you'll start buying things to make it look good anyway!

Yes, you just use the Evo III diffs. I strongly recommend the Evo III Reinforced diffs wherever you use ball diffs.

I found that the car pushed like a [email protected]#h with the ball diff in the front. I think that on particularly tight tracks it may become useful but in general, ball diffs are just no good up front. I'm going to be getting a Spool for the car very soon so I can't wait to try that puppy out!!

hey simon
do you use the inner hole on the front hub carrier for steering? i did that and it gave me instantly 5-10 more deg of steering throw! i also had to set my TX for 100% on right hand turns and 72% on left hand turns as the steering linkage gets contact with the tailshaft at the front
how do you guys go about this? shim it sits higher?
