Default Tamiya 415MSX MRE/ MSXX/ MSXX MRE differences.

Hi to all bros out there! I'd like to seek some help on the above topic.

Would like to know what are the differences between the kits, tried searching online, but didnt really get a clear answer. For instances, are the parts interchangeable? Eg, some products ive found state that "For 415MSXX". so i was wondering if MSX MRE could use it etc.

thks.

What parts are you specifically talking about?

pretty much all parts on the MSXX can be used on the MRE, the main differences are;
Chassis plate - 2.5mm (MRE) vs 2mm (MSXX), and the MSXX uses a different front bumper design (taken from the Evo4/5)

Centre one-way - New design that is different than the MSX type one way, as it uses the plastic 16t pulley (although only on the rear belt). MRE came only with direct drive all round (locked one-piece centre shaft, spool up front).

Apart from that, can't think of anything else different between the two cars, that can't be interchanged easily.

Regards
Ed

hey bro,

thks for the reply ya. im actually looking at most parts. afraid that i could not find spares for the 415MSXMRE

so that means besides the geometrical differences in the chassis lower deck, they still can be swapped ya? and most parts can be swapped?

thks for answering my newbie questions. just kinda concern with my kit.

Yup, all parts can be swapped.
With the chassis, the only difference is the front bumper, all other holes on the MSXX plate are the same as the MRE...

Oh, one thing I forgot, the MSXX has a different top deck (more flex) than the MRE, but it is a direct swap between the two.

another thing is the outline of the chassis plates on the MRE vs MSXX(MRE)
the MRE is wider than MSXX/MSXX-MRE.
and the steering is different on the MSXX-MRE

The MSXX-MRE are using the new "black Coated" damper kit.

Actually, you're incorrect there. I have an MRE, and an MSXX chassis plate, and I've just lined the two up against each other. The are both the same width.
The only differences are
1) 2.5 vs 2mm thick
2) front bumper mounting
3) MSXX chassis has extra tape slots 5 cell batteries

Everything else is in exactly the same position.

If your looking at the TRF415 MSXX MRE 2007 edition (man I hate long names), it also has a slighlty different rear cross brace, with no centre section (effectively, it isn't a brace, just the layshaft mount caps)

The steering is slightly different on the MSXX MRE, in that the bell cranks are above the cross brace. However, I don't believe this affects the position of the steering ball joints, so doesn't have an affect on how the system operates. Effectively it is the same as on the MRE, and MSXX.
The original MSX uses the old style steering, that the 415, 415 MS also used (twin bell cranks with carbon cross plate).
