I'm just waiting for my tc3 to get sold and after that I'm going to decide whether I'd buy a new 415 or a used one. By the way, does the 415 kit (the original version) come with threaded shocks? And what is the difference between the MSX or the newer 415 versions with the original version?
Yes the original kit does come with the threaded shocks, although you do only get the plastic collars to make adjustments.
The difference between the versions is quite a lot, but I'll try and run through them for you
415; 3mm thick chassis plate, TA04 style suspension, black belts, Longer (48mm) inner hinge pins
415MS; 2.5mm thick chassis plate, LWT reversible suspension, White belts, Delrin rear diff, lower shock towers, shorter (46mm) hinge pins, blue TRF shocks,
415MSX "Refine 2"; as per the MS, but with the new bulkheads, alloy rear diff, special blue TRF shocks, roll bar adjusters.
There is also a conversion kit avaliable to give the 415 and 415MS the MSX bulkheads, it's actually what I originally brought for my car (it came out before the MSX kit). However it doesn't include the T centre brace or the other MSX bits mentioned.
