Thanks.
I ran a Robinson Racing 64P spur on my TB-04 pro and it fit perfectly. I am sure almost any brand will fit. I like the RW Racing spurs as well as the 3Racing, Robinson and Kimbrough.

The only changes to set up since last race are (which are reflected in set up sheet): damper oil to 45wt and rear inner block from XA to XB.
When I open your PDF. It shows a blank set up sheet. Honestly, just find wilcks or Reinhards carpet set up and copy it to your car. It will get you in the ball park. And if you only have Tamiya springs. Use whites up front and blues in the rear. Usually 40wt oil. Check for binding, slop and tweak. No matter how good your set up is, if you have major slop, binding or the car is tweaked. Your car will handle like crap

I don't know why PDF does that. Probably have to save it different way. I prese you have the whites on front and blues on rear.

Slop has been taken out and no binding. Tweak.. Do plastic chassis' tweak?

You mean to copy their set up for 418 to TB04? Also I run on asphalt, so im assuming you mean copy asphalt set up?

I am in the hunt for a fast consistent setup for my TB04ProV2. I race on indoor carpet Med grip usually. I have three race days on the car and I feel the car has too much steering and is inconsistent. My fast laps are on par but for my driving style the car is too loose. Also my high speed rear end stability is low, I think due to the molded rear wing on my Audi R8 body.

I need to do a few things to sort out the slop in my steering that I think is adding to the inconsistency. New servo gears being one.

I will update as I progress with this car and get closer to a good setup.

For now I am focusing on getting a proper rear wing and eliminating steering slop.

Anyone else notice all of the ball studs on this car are ~4.7mm not 5mm? Things are free but a bit sloppy right after a build.

You didn't mention it is your car over steering on corner entry or mid corner or exit. If it is on entry go with less rear droop. Is it too much steering or the car spins out? You need to expain what you need or what end of the car you need to fix First!

On Petitrc there are a couple of setups for the TB Evo6. Probably a good baseline for us to use, since it uses the same suspension and diffs

For asphalt. I use hpi silvers all around. 40 weight oil. B-B blocks up front and XA-D or E blocks in the rear. LTC-r light weight body. 6-5 droop. 1 1/2-2 degrees camber. 3k rear diff oil and spool up front. Long camber links all around fairly level. Run hard suspension parts. Get rid of the soft plastic stuff.

Hope this helps

Yea I guess to clarify the car had too much steering for my tastes on entry and mid corner. Car had only a slight push on exit.

I think I was getting inconsistency and possibly some snatchy inputs from slop in my steering and worn servo gears. I want to fix this issue before addressing anything else.

So HPI silvers work every where?

I will have to grab a set.

If the car is rotate to well on corner entry I would take some reason droop out of the car. The car could be transferring weight to the frontend when you let off or apply brake on entry.
