They should be releasing a one-way unit for the MRE soon, its listed on the Tamiya website as a Hop-Up part.

Wanted to know if I buy a bearing set for the 415 will it fit into my MSX? or are they different?

And I've searched around but cant a place where they sell screw sets for my MSX.

Thanks.

Go to the bearing shop and tell them the dimension of the bearings your want.They should be the same.

You can buy screw set from Tamiya or can get it through the internet (E.g. RCchamp...)

Most of the bearings are the same except for the ones in the uprights. 415 MS/MSX/MRE runs 950 sized bearings there.

Smooth and seal the carbon edges, and put a .1mm shim in between the piston and the e-clip in th shocks to take out a bit of play. Other than that just follow the instructions and add thread lock to the grub screws in the driveshafts and the steering rack (only a little bit).

This a major point here! I mean if your going to use the anti-swaybars they can't have any slop in them to be effective.
I too had struggled with those loose fitting anti-sway bars until I drilled a small hole in that small black plastic brace that holds and attaches them to the bulkheads. I drilled the hole at an angle so the grub screw pushes down and back to hold the swaybar secure. You really have to tighten it down while the swaybar is free and not attached with the links to make sure it's not binding and tighten very gingerly. Also, I think saw that Hotbodies has an aluminium one for their car, also with a small grub screw.
So thanks again TryHard for this great tip. I have slowly gotten better and after trying many different combinatons of setups, I finally won my first 19t main with this car and even beat out one of the fast guys to do it. Man, I love this car. I'm really just a club racer but in a two weeks I'm trying my luck at our ROAR 9-regionals. All hail Tamiya.

Default One way Front diff

Hey guys,

Concerning the oneway front diff for the MRE, can't we just use the one from the TA05 part number: 53833??

or what about the Following parts from the MS: Front oneway housing left and right (51059) + One way joints 53451 +Front one way pulley (51054)?

Spool, for the small tight technical tracks I run on are too slow.. plus I run only 23T for now..

Some one please help..

Thanks
