Cool product. If I had any problems with bent blocks I would consider buying some from you. Alas, I haven't bent any. I run the split blocks up front which seems the most common one to bend.

been wondering for awhile and maybe was asked before, pardon if someone already asked and answered before.

why do the suspension mounts has the number '1' in front of the letters.... 1A 1B 1C, etc

it's not like tamiya came up with 2A 2B 2C and so on...

not an important question but just need to 'quench' my curiosity

the original blocks just had the letters... then when the 415 (Ed can correct me on this) came out.. they added the "1" since its 1mm lower than the original.

and you'll probably ask.. what about the difference in "font" between 1A and 1A

the newest blocks that have different lettering are redesigned so you can "flip them over" and use them as bridge blocks to clear the belt. (or chassis brace like in the TB-03)

thanks man!

so basically other than the flipping over, the 415 and 416 blocks are of the same dimension.

yes.. BUT when all the font lettering is the same... you go 0.1/sec per lap faster.

Not true! For some reason Tamiya decided to make the new blocks shorter than the old. An old 1C block is a smidge longer than the new ones. The same holds true for the rest. Very weird...

Put them side-by-side and you can definitely see the difference.

Tamiya themselves says the setting is the same. The difference is probably in the material thickness...

The old suspension blocks (only A-E) for the 415 are slightly wider then newer 416 ones. The 415 blocks were designed for the old suspension (TA04) on the original 415 which uses ~50mm suspension shafts. This was later changed to 46mm shafts with slightly more toe in the rear as result. This was corrected with the new blocks. As comparsion on 46mm shafts: XA-old E = 3.2 degrees, XA-new E = 3 degrees.
