There is one other thing you could try first - use the equivalent size imperial allen key, they are usually slightly larger than metric! May work and save you from having to cut the screws!

Jay you don't think my chassis being 1mm thinner than the MSX i.e. 3mm instead of 4mm will make a diffrence do you?

Screws shoud be samew thickness as mine, only difference would be thread length (which is actually the same)

Grinding stone doesnt come with it, they are used for sharoening chisels etc.
Its a flat stone so turn fremel on, put the cutting disc onto the stone until its worn to a perfect circle.

Default 415 diff

Hi

I have got myself a used 415 that i just re-built now its almost new with the spare parts i got in the deal...anyway i have a alloy ball diff for the front (carpet racing) and I also have the option of running ether the stick plastic rear diff or an alloy rear diff. which would be better? i did notice the front alloy diff is very smooth compared to the rear plastic diff...

also to add i will be running int both mod (5 to 7 turn) and 19turn class...

any help would be great.

also is that module suspension any good for carpet racing?

Use the Alloy diff halves...Its much smoother as the plastic ones do warp over time.

Are you racing rubber on carpet or foams?
