If I remember right, I ran 50 alround at DV, so your probably not far off.
Best bet, try 60f and 30r (with the DJ).
Cause the track is smooth, you don't need the dampers to help out with bump adsoption, just control of pitch and roll, and as such can be setup stiffer.
If it was a t the sand pit end though, more than likely not gonna help regardless... how does the car feel on the rest of the track, is it just that corner/section you struggle in?

car feels pretty good all round , but the back end snaps out on corner entry but only on the fast corners, on the slow corners its nailed.

I was using yellow front springs and fluro red rear , do you think it would be better on blue front and fluro yellow rear with 60 oil front and 30 oil rear ?

Which toe blocks would you use ?

Try blue on the front to start, with 50 or 60wt oil. If the car then starts to understeer on power, go to the fluro yellow on the rear, with 25 or 30wt. If it still snaps, try laying the rear shocks in one hole (I think I used hole 3 with the DJ on the rear tower).

Toe blocks... I think I ran A/XB or the front, with XC/B on the rear, so quite narrow.

FYI ...if you have a drill press and a round dremel grinding wheel, it's a walk in the park to get a 415 oneway to work with the MSE pulley's doesn't need a lot of material ground off at all, I set the depth on the drill press so that it took a tad off, ground one side, flipped the pulley and did the other side and viola oneway with the 36 tooth (well technically 18 if you count the teeth) pulley.

Tamiya makes a stick pack conversion kit for the 415 MSX, that works quite well with the Orion Lipo pack. If your interested I have a NIB kit I can sell. I'm in San Diego, can get it to you quick if needed. PM me of you are interested.

it sounds like its too soft on the rear may be you should go up an oil rate and spring rate all round also lengthen your wheel base that should make the car better on the faster corners

i think m8commando's bigger concern is the 4800 orion lipo pack not being able to fit in the MSX bulkheads without having to dremel off the battery shape/curve off the rear bulkhead.

you can still use the orion lipo with the original chassis. the rear bulkhead just has to be dremeled. this problem was solved with the newly shaped packaging of the 3200mah orion lipo. there are photos in the 3200mah lipo thread.

Does a 64p 120t spur gear fit the car? Also where can I get a front ball diff?

spur should fit, and you can either make your own ball diff, or get the new one from tamiya.

and my question is where can i get replacement outdrives for a shooters spool for the standard 415?

a 120 won't fit. The largest you can get in is about 108.
Ball diff... you might as well get the new tamiya alloy one.

HotRodHopkins;

You can get replacement outdrives for a shotoers spool I think, not sure where from though...
