You don't have to use the old pulleys for the diff, just either take some material off the pulley or bearing holder.
For the centre, if you want to run dual 1-ways (front and centre) you do need to use the old style layshaft with the seperate pulleys etc, simply beacuse the TA05 one wont work, as the belts are in the wrong position (ie, you would have the oneway on the Rear belt, instead of the front).

Regardless, the ratio would still be 2.25, as the centre pulley size hasn't changed. The ratio has only changed as the diff pulleys are 1 tooth larger.

Hey everyone. So, my first experience with new 415 MRE in carpet was awsome.

Here in Finland ( me inc.) some drivers decided to switch the new Tamiya415 and i think nobody are`t disappointed

Car looks good and feel fast

Arrow MSX MR building tips

Just to let everyone interested in the MSX MR know i have written some detailed building tips with lots of photos on my blog.

I'll be adding some more tips and info in the future once I work more on the car and start running again when the indoor season starts.

Check it out and let me know if you have any comments.

Default Couple of questions

Just wanted to know where the UK 415 racers source their spares from, Also what make of turnbuckles are you guys using, having never broken a turnbuckle ever I broke 2 this weekend and I want to replace them for something a little stronger.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Another spool?

I bought the new wide pitch pulley for the one-way and tried to bolt it to the Tamiya spool and the holes don't line up. Is the MRE spool different from the original? How can I make it work without buying the MRE spool? What's the deal?
Am I missing something?

2 possibilities:
- the wide pitch pulley that you bought might be intended for TA05.
- the spool is different (which i doubt, can anyone confirm?)

The wide pitched pulley is intended for TA05 and the MRE. And yes the MRE spool is a liitle different from the MSX's one in terms of dimensions...

In order to use the pulley, you must remove some material from the pulley or the bearing holder,so you can fit into the MSX...

As for fitting the pulley onto the spool, just try some force...The screws will thread the pulley holes somewhat.

Best bet is to use a small round hobby file and elongate the holes, otherwise you could either snap a screw or crossthread the spool. I was worried mine would be out of round, but take a little material off each of the three holes slowly and when you can just get the screws in, your set. Mine is perfectly centred on both cars.
