John, like I told you this morning...stick with the 415MS, tune the living daylights out of it and drive it 100%...while others like to be chassis wh*res (coughchrislimcough ) if you can just get the most out of the 415, you'll be fine.

Thanks dude, it was really cool to 3-pete TQ and 2-Time win the class. I would have gotten 3rd in GT1 too but I hit a dot with like a minute to go and rolled it....Oh well, there's always Cinci

Yeah, they gave the winners of GT1, 2, and 3 Evo 4's. Just need to decide if I am going to build it or part it out...There's a lot of stuff there that can transfer over to my TB and my TA....Hmmmmm

I epoxied the spur gear holder to the rear input shaft though this sounds alittle extreme it does wonders to the drive train making it more rigid and slop free

What are the major spares that I need for this car. I'm planning on pre-ordering the MS version of the kit and I don't want to get caught short handed when it comes to spare parts. I'm assuming that I need to get a couple of extra arms and steering knuckles, what are the other major areas I need to address so I'm not caught short handed for the racing season?

I need help guys

i cant seem to get the rear end of my car to stay planted!
ill be trying a few new things tommorrow but other than that im pretty much stuck for ideas! i race on a very low bite asphalt track which is medium size.
heres a basic layout of my setup
Front
40wt AE shock oil
1 deg toe out
- 0.5 camber
4 deg caster
shocks postioned upright (2nd highest hole on the tower)
front one way
front droop (guessing) 1-2mm
front ride height 5.5mm
and upper arm/camber link position is kit setting.
take off 27's

Rear
40wt AE shock oil
2 deg toe in (A+C)
- 2 deg camber
shocks positioned inwards (2nd lowest hole on tower)
rear ball diff seems abit loose! ( did tighten it the night before i hit the track so i guess i might have to use locktite on that small nylon nut)
rear droop (guesssing) 1-2 mm
rear ride height 5-5.5mm
and camber link position is kit settings
take off 27's as well

also i would like to ask can i use take off 32's at the front and 27's at the rears? a guy at the track told me not to do this as i did this for nitros when ever i was in trouble! quick fix i must say!

ill be mainly tinkering with front toe adj, rear camber link positionings, lenghts, and angle, rear toe in (back to kit setting of 3 deg) and build 2 extra front shocks with 70wt oil to see if this helps.

Also!!! can someone teach me how to make the car roll more into the corners as i have seen F.Alonso's car racing in mod with this setup, he did this to counter the low bite situation at our local club.

all help is appreciated sorry for such a lengthy read!

Cheers
