With the 416 it's almost easy to forget that you can tweak your chassis when you compare it to older generations of cars.

I am quite sure that the servo will not hang off the side of the 417.

I am soon going to put my Smokem 416LP chassis to use as we are likely to adapt the 1350 gram weight limit.

For those that have used the Smokem chassis or any other chassis with flipped belts and...

My apologies! I'm sorry that I came off sounding like that.

I was trying to say, I guess in a sarcastic way, that the 416 is a very capable chassis.

Well, no car is going to magically set itself up.

It'd help to know your current set up.

devil,

I'd try increasing rear toe to 2.5 or 3 degrees. That will give you more corner entry. Also, adjust the front track width by removing the 1 mm hub spacers up front. The wider front will...

I completely agree. We should let the track and driver skill determine how much straight away speed is optimal.

Using touring car as an example, I think there should be one slow class for...

Supposedly Jon Tag said that true 0 degree timing is actually three marks advanced past the long line on the Duo2. With that motor timing, I tried profile 8 at 6.3 FDR with my 13.5 Duo2 and it is...

With my 17.5 X12 I found the -5 degree timing insert to work well with profile 6 on the SPX. Also, the motor seems to run better at high temps like 180-200 F. It does not seem to fade at those...

I tested the 17.5 X12 today for the first time in my 416 with a SPX. I started out on profile 6, FDR 4.86, and the stock "0" degree timing insert. It was fast, but the motor was at 180 F after two...

This is just an inference but I think the RS was intentionally designed with the potential for "turbo." Since the company took a while to get the function working, I had doubts about whether it...

I don't think you can deny that the RS software updates only recently brought that speedo up to par. I do agree an I/O interface is something the LRP lacks, but in this case the Tekin would have...

I don't think you can go wrong with either at this point, but like others have said, software updates are not a true upgrade. It just masks the fact that the RS was not ready when it was released. ...

I use the older Novak SS which is supposed to be, in terms of performance, equivalent to the Ballistic. I can't see any reason to use a different motor at this point since I'm not being out-powered...

My initial impression is that you are geared too high but I would definitely try to experiment and see what happens. My track is much smaller than yours so my set up may not work for you. Let us...

I think I finally found the sweet spot for my 17.5 SP Ultrasportsman on the SPX. With a SMC lipo, I'm running a 4.07 FDR on profile seven and it comes off the track in six minutes at about 155 F in...

I've had good results from Tekins in the past so I almost went with Tekin again. A couple of things stopped me from going with the Tekin this time though. One was the fact that you pretty much need...

I can't speak for the LRP, but I do have a SP Ultra Sportsman and a Novak.

The SP can be fast when it is geared high. The only thing is, in my racing environment, it gets too hot to run that kind...

What kind of difference is there between using 0.5 mm under the blocks and using hole #1 for the inner camber links? I know that they both raise the roll center, but is it just a matter of how much?

I don't think I will replace my current TCs until we see more cars specifically designed for lipo. I'm sure the major manufacturers are or will soon be working on their lipo cars.

You don't really need any hop ups except maybe a spool, but if your track suits 13.5 with a one-way you might not need it.
