RC4less got some going too
I've used Acer bearings in the past, had really good luck with them, top notch quality. I havent tried the RC4Less bearings, but from what Joseph says, they are awesome as well. I'm using the Yokomo ceramics in my SD right now, good durability, but the Acer's had more free spin.

on the 415 I had read they were shipping them,Heck I'm still on an R2 for stock,where I race no one runs mod,it's hard to get people to run 19 turn,I think I will keep my R2 and just buy a new chassis for it..

The R2 is a great car w/ the xenon stage 2 or 3 upgrade. I got away from the aluminum and went to the hardened parts, I'd rather it break than have something bend and not really know it. But, that's me.

I'm going to pick up a 415 as well for use in the TCS series. I had a chance to handle the sample at Tamiya America this week. It's impressive, very stiff and well finished. Belts are very narrow front and rear. That being said it will be a pain to adjust the diff and cams in the bulkheads but I guess thats the price you pay for having such a still chassis.

It will remain to be seen however if the belts 415 will be as quick as the EVO with it's 2.6 internal in the stock classes. (not sure what the internal is on the 415?)

think I'll stick with the fish for stock & 19T racing

Sounds like the 415 is gonna be a popular car.

I agree, as for belt cars, The 415 and the Xray Factory are the way to go. As for the 415, we already have a pre-order going on for it on the website. We should see it 2nd or 3rd week of March

But for stock and 19T...I think shaft drive is still the way to go

I'm interested to see how long the 415 stays popular since there has been talk about the Evo 4 for the last couple months as well..

I think the X-Ray looks the nicer belt drive car, seems silly to have a belt drive and not use it's best option of cells balanced between each side and motor in the middle. Tamiya seem to be trying to juggle too many balls at once, they needed to fix the Evo 3's problems but instead they've been working on two new cars

It'll stay popular until Tamiya announces their newest car. I'd say four weeks tops.

Steve any comments about this? I think my question got lost in the threads....
