Yesterday another lost race always because of rear belt broken.....
My rear belts don't survive to my racing configuration : spool,Novak 4.5,foams,IB4200,high grip race track.
What mistake I do ? I think that the 415MSX is designed to run only with rubber tire or foam with stock motors.
Two 415's racing at my club, and and all have the same problem.
I waiting the new MRE, and I hope that Tamiya has solved the problem (I don't think), otherwise I'm ready to change car !
Nobody has my same problem ?
I'm very tired to lose race for a unreliable model !

The TA05 front and centre won't fit, as the belt is on the other side compared to the 415.
Thanks Ed...

I was that Tamiya would hurry to introduce one way units for the MRE.

Have you tried the old balck belts? they are supposeadly not as free as the white belts, but stronger (I think they are wider too).

Thank you Tryhard, yes I'm running, since four months, only with black belts, but I don't finish a race with the same belt of start, yesterday on six run I changed two belts and in the last final I stopped the car after half race ... I tried all kind of tension, loose, medium, hard, but the belt broken always.

have you checked that the belts aren't rubbing on anyhing? It's possible that they could be rubbing on the suspension block.

I notice you also said you race on high grop track with foams... this more than likely putting a high amount of strain on the drivetrain. What setup do you run? spool, 1-way etc?

Default Need help Please

Hi Guy's
I really need your help with a question regarding set up of my MSX and my MS Please.
I have downloaded some great setups of you guy's and I just wanted to get a set up for both my car's, I really value your opinion here.
The track is grippy asphalt outdoor.
some tight turns with one long straight.
Very grippy
very smooth
I live on the gold coast of australia and it is very warm most of the year.

What I am looking for it mainly a suspesion,ride hieght,spacer, Camber type set up to start from. I will be racing in stock rebuildable 27 turn.
Any input would be great here.
I also use one way and sorex 36 with yokoma wheels and sorex B mediums.
Has some one got a setup sheet of there car what would suit me.
Thanks so much
Addam smith

A good base setup to start...
Well for the MSX try this one http://www.thard.co.uk/setups/TORC/05/TORC13.jpg
It's pretty much the stock setup... but if your running a one-way change go up a spring rate on the front springs.
Also try moving the shocks in one hole on the arms (to hole 3), and putting the front upper camber link in hole 3 on the bulkhead.
That should work pretty well to start with.

HiH

Hi Tryhard,
I will check if rear belt rubbing on the blocks, but I don't think.
I run with front spool and fixed central pulley.
I have seen that with front one way the problem was less. However, at my club two 415MSX with the same setup and same problems .....

Still looking for a way to fit a one way setup.
i havent tried to use a center yet, but the front fits great, with a very small amount removed from the spool pulley in the kit.

if you put it in without narrowing the pulley, it will bind the front somewhat, as it fits too tight between the bulkheads.

Try this one.

Bear in mind though, Ashby is a pretty bumpy track. You could probably get away with going stiffer on the shocks, if as you say, your track is smooth. But that will be a good starting point.
