your 415 came with silver shock bodies i have 2 415's ms/msx both came with blue. then i converted my MS to all gold annodizing.

TRF came out with a red set of shock bodies too right?

you should also get a set of Tamiya 1mm down alum lower spring retainers.
i have a set on my MSX. i tried looking for the part number, but couldn't find it.

M04 is RWD, few people race them. Simple answer for you, just get an M03M Suzuki Swift, its the best value kit of all.

The Tech conversion? Do you mean the 4WD one? You cant race with that at most clubs..

What better between a M00, M03M and a M03L. I really like the Swift (M03M)?

Also, what speed and these cars get compared to stock sedan?

Chris.

They're all essentially identical apart from chassis length. But the M03M (Swift) is the latest model with more of the good bits included in the price. So its the one to go for.

Speed is all a matter of motor. But with a Sport-tuned (Black motor) they're about the same as a good silver-can 4WD chassis in speed. And a LOT more fun.....

Thanks, I was going to go with the M03L but I guess I will buy the M03M Swift (which was the one I wanted at first).

Thanks Chris.
