Distance between the laysaft mounts and bulkhead mounts. Inside edge to inside edge on both. Millimetres preferably.

Thanks

I don't have my car to hand, but that measurement will be the same for all three (I assume your talking about the width across the car)

hi everyone,
I'm thinking to purchase one TRF416 online however i'm not sure if this car can be fitted with normal nitro foam tires especially to it's rear (ie, front using front foam tire & rear using rear foam tire)
Would anyone confirm?

What's the internal ratio on the 416? I'm coming up with 2.055 but that doesn't seem right. I looked at Tryhard's gear chart but it has the 415 listed.

You got it right, it's 2.055.

I agree. Let World GT be the new foam class, and lets get busy with improving at rubber tires so we can compete with the rest of the world.

There are all the different pulley options listed on it.... you jsut need to click the correct tab at the bottom (37/18)

The U.S. could probably field more sponsored drivers at the world's if it was a 13.5 brushless class. Subject has already been beat to death, probably shouldn't have brought it up again.

World GT and Sedan foam are two different things. Let's not confuse the two.

Don't lose track of IQ0's question. There are different offset's available for nitro foams so one should work but not sure. You almost have to talk to someone who has the car and the foam's to be sure. Have you checked the Nitro section?

Outdoor nitro rubber doesnt work very well on carpet...
