The front bulkheads look like ones from the 05MS, with the double screw hole to mount the top deck.
As someone else has mentioned... theres no facility for 5 cell either... which isn't strange in iteself, except that the MSXX does....

Thoose were the kind of ideas I was thinking of that the car might have though.

Apparently, it looks to be.

Also the car in the pics on the tamiya usa site does not seem to have equal width bulkheads front and rear. IMHO thats a test hack.

As far as I know, when tamiya post pics of their kits, they don't usually post it lke sideways that will make us viewers go sideways too... They usually post their kits pics with an angle from the front right of the kit... So I am also having doubts that that is the real deal; 416...

On the 415 the front bulkheads are 3mm closer to each other than the rear. If you look at the spool in the 416 pic you notice a gap at about 3mm, the bulkheads seems very much to be equal width.

I just think do 415 one-way fit directly to 416 or not?

There are two types of oneways, one piece and two piece, and neither of them would fit without heavy shimming (two piece would require less, depends on pulley). Main problem though is that there are no 37T oneway pullies as of yet.

I'll give you a hint, It isn't the Set-up, it the loose nut behind the wheel!

do u guys kinda think tamiya should have a vastly different car to the 415? only reason is with the mi3 and the new team magic car hitting the market offereing new and innovative ideas i think tamiya would look lazy to release a refinement.
just my $.02
