I agree with TRF415boy. if the rollout is the same pinion size won't matter. I wonder about the internal ratio of the car though. it seems a higher ratio would be better for stock (everything else being he same). our best stock sedan has the highest internal ratio. having just bought a 415MSX to run on carpet/foams. I have been looking at the TA-05 diff and centre gears for my 415 to raise the internal to 2.25.
also do you guys cut the fronts down at all or just space them out???? I ended up spacing the rims out about .040
so thet won't rub. or do you use a different steering knuckle???
(this is my first Tamiya besides my TA-05. I'm trying to get it ready for Cleveland)

Thanks
Quite a few people use the HPI front hubs (in accordance with hpi front wheel axles, on which you can put the tamiya dogbones) with foam.

TimXLB, I'm running my 415msx on carpet with foams and I've found when you just space the wheels out to make the foam tires fit, the car is wider than 190mm. Have you measured the front of your car??? What I did to make the front end work (...with all Tamiya parts) was to run "A" blocks in the front with the short LWT reversible arms (only in the front) with the 6mm hex and 1 red and 1 blue spacer on the axle. This puts the front end just under 190mm and you don't have to cut the tire/rim any. You also don't have to put any other companies parts on your car...i.e...HPI.

Thanks 415boy and TimXLB for the feedback...makes sense. I'll probably just stick with the white diff pulleys...figured I'd ask...always looking for an advantage, especially in stock.

Tim...you can use the 415 locked center pulley with the TA-05 diff pulley...I use the HPI steering knuckles with the LWT arms for my carpet ride. I only use the LWT versus the standard 415 arms because I can adjust the caster with LWT arms...the stanard arms do not allow option caster blocks and you still maintain the option to adjust front track width. With the tamiya knuckles and foams you need to space the front-end out to clear the rim...not very practical.

The only down side with the HPI knuckles are they're weak...and you need to trim the steering stopper off them to gain maximum steering throw. I just ordered 6 sets for the season...someone actually gave me a set of aluminum knuckles which I may try this season.

Thanks for the advice...

Tamiya makes both 4 and 6 degree caster blocks for the standard suspension, and they clear 28mm foams easily.

Oh ok...but for others looking both 4 and 6 are available, and 6 is most popular with carpet/foams.

Kewl ...thanks ..TI turnbuckles ordered, they came in sets of two, so I get an extra 23mm (actually 1", so I can sell 1/10" worth of TI Turnbuckle to you if you want).
