Bottom line - They are both excellent cars, you will not be disapponted with either one.
it does not handle well when you get the conversion kit. I guess that it
handles a lot better from stock setting and stock parts.

Talking MRE One way Diff

Hi,

A lot of questions regarding front1 way diffs for the MRE. Apparently there will be one coming shortly.. How shortly?? I dunno.

For the time being, (and since I am very impatient) I bought the front oneway system for the TRF 415. I fitted it on and it fits fine. Tonight I will give it a spin and tell you all how it worked and wheter it was worth it..

Here are the part numbers for the conversion:

- Tamiya TRF415 Front One-way Housing: TAM51059
- Tamiya TRF415 Light Weight One-Way Drive Cup: TAM53704

the other parts were all from the orignal MRE package..

However I do recommend the following, if you don't want to undo/dammage the solid axle:

- Get a new MRE Front Pulley and
- bearings that hold the front Diff.

Hope this helps some..

Thanks,
Yup very possible... in fact Marc R did the same thing at the LRP race last year I believe. You don't HAVE to have the lwt reversible suspension to use it, the std works just fine.

from experience, a lot of people say the original suspension is faster on carpet with rubbers... it may be true for good drivers but i found the LWT easier to drive..

I've only ever used the light weight suspension on carpet but now the short arms have come out i might give them a go. If you can set-up a car you can usually drive anything

I decided to get a tamiya after all the research but can decide between MSX or MRE, I will be racing on asphalt, which should I go with?
also any suggestion on what kind of battery is best to race stock or 19t? I see the batteries are up to 4200 now and most are IB, the last time I run electric we where using GP 3300. and in regards to motor do I want to go with brushed or brushless now? I have not been to any tracks yet so I dont know if now you can mixed them up or most run separate class.
I will be hitting the LHS this weekend and your input is appriciated
If you're interested in a MSX refine 2 kit. I have one available for sale. it was my outdoor chassis, which I only ran once. One little scratch on the bottem of the chassis. Otherwise the car is in mint condition. I have a seperate 4mm MSX chassis for carpet racing.

let me know if interested. Send me a PM

Say it isn't so, Carl. I was looking forward to seeing you run it this indoor season. What are you switching to now?

no worries I have two fully ready to run MSX chassis. One is a 4mm convert the one I'm selling is for outdoors only. No need to have two rolling chassis.

I have too much money invested in Tamiya stuff to switch.

Guys - do you know if Marc Rheinard and Josh Numan run 64 or 48 pitch gears? Also, do you know what brand pinions and spurs they use or do you have any good recommendations?

Thanks in advance.
