using velcro for radio gears like ESC and receiver is fine. but for battery i guess it's fine when you are playing for fun /bashing but it may be not good if you're into racing.

if you're talking about a significant difference then yes, it's the steering. other differences like bigger diff pulley, spool, can be done with little modification on your normal msx.

The car is significantly different when it comes to the guts but yes, mostly is due to the steering. There are other differences too though.

i am confused about the more steering i have to set my end points to get 20degrees of lock left and right and i am turning the max throw down still. YEs more steering will make it turn tighter but do you really need to kill your servo so quickly?

In the name of FAST.... YES...!!

No....just kidding...There are lots of ways to get more steering...The 415 has tonnes of setup options to get the steering you want without killing your servo .

Main Differences

Steering setup, very similar to the Evo5, but with a vertical ball stud on the cross beam. Also means different chassis plate (with holes cut for a cooling bracket, and other suspension block holes), and top plate.

Different pulley setup. Similar to the TA05, except the pulleys have every other teeth removed, and are a slightly different pitch to the standard TA05 ones. Also there is a protective lip on the diff pulley (unlike on the 415/05 ones which are open)

Centre pulley. Now uses alloy brackets, which allow up and down adjustment of the spur gear (allowing bigger spur). Also the centre mount is one-piece, with no seperate layshaft. Much lighter than before.

Rear Alloy top brace. Heat sink design.

Rear hubs. Less play, and 0.5mm lower. I didn't notice this until someone (ta Mr Maddison) pointed it out, but the rear hubs are different. easy to spot as they are marked H0.

All in all, a fair few changes, and with the new steering setup, highly unlikely to be a conversion kit.

And on the Belt thing... I run mine seemingly quite loose. Never have a problem with skipping though, which is what I've always been told. Run them as loose as possible without skipping. Anything thats tight will wear faster than something thats loose... simple fact.
When I push down on the front belt just behind the front pulley, I can touch the top deck easily, and the rear is similarly loose.

That was with the old white belts. Not done enough running on the new setup to tell how these fair.

Ed

Hey Ed,

Do you mean the Axle height is 0.5mm lower??

Thanks,

I asked the same question, the answer is no, only the top bit is lower, so no changes to the RC.
