Like the 415, it should be the one-way. Can't screw anything on a Diff pulley

not sure in this moment !
NICE! I enquired about getting a TRF416 from rc champ and they told me it was no longer on sale, so perhaps the spool/titanium version will replace the regular kit all together. I'm planning on buying a TRF in a fortnights time so hopefully there is more info available on the new version by then

Was at Maritime Raceway on Saturday, for some testing and Sunday which held the tamiya euro cup, although i ran in the open spec class.

Car was great from the start, ran Victor Wilks DHI Cup setup, though the car had slight understeer on power, but it still felt realy easy to drive, so i just left it alone.

Qualified 8th in the A, and worked my way up to 4th in the final, for some rather aggresive driving from the 5th place car spun me into the oncoming pack of cars behind, which effectively ended my race half way through with a broken rear hub.

All the same, realy good weekends racing, and i recommend the venue to all, undoubtedly the best indoor carpet venue in the UK

Thanks Terrell. I knew there was a key element I needed to try for USA parking lot style tracks. Hopefully that was it. Next weekend will be a good test. I might add just 0.5mm to the steering rack. We'll see. I don't want to change much. Or anything at all from what I ran this past weekend. Need to learn as much as I can about this car. The Nats is coming up quickly!! Oh, and I'm cycling my packs right now to see what's up with them. We should of timed our runs.

A new car already?? Couldn't they just wait till after the Reedy Race like they always do!! They better offer an upgrade kit. Damn bitches!! haha

When you order the spool, does it come with everything you need besides the pulley?

Thanks

Hello,

Tamiya just released new teflon sealed bearings (42108 - 42115). The great variety of bearings seems to fit every Tamiya car (espeicially TRF416). The price is similar to the blue gum sealed oldschool bearings.

What do you mean a new kit? So fast? Where is there info about a new TRF 416 kit or version?
