I don't think so, since the pulley for the 415's are centered, while the 416's is offset(same way the rear diff pulley is, which on the 416 also makes it possible to use the same parts to build a front diff, but I don't see how any of it would be compatible with any 415's)...

Don't worry about those guys Craig there only jealous if you want some info on the car we have a few drivers that have been running it for awhile know they might be able to help you. If you want to come over one Friday.

I'm not too worried Trev, Tom is all talk, he never races anyway I'll be back out to CH after the muchmore masters once I've dropped the 10.5 in. Hopefully I wont get lost so many times on the way out there next time

Thought I'd share with you guys my 416s first proper outing. I made the changes I mentioned earlier and added the kit wheel spacers front and rear (0.5mm front and 1mm rear). Then I had a little fiddle with the droop and diff and the car was awesome, I qualified 3rd and finished 2nd in a field full of sponsored drivers. Not bad at all, yet I know there is still plenty of speed left in the car - it's still overweight (ti screws are in the mail) and it's off power steering could be a little improved. There is a big event at our track next weekend, once I've run that I'll post my setup

Nice work Craig. Will you be there on Tue night? It would be good to get the cars dialed to the new track!

I don't know what they are in the normal kit. I never run Tamiya springs but the setup I'm running now is calling for them. I want to know what would be close until I can get the TRF springs.
