Sorry for being cryptic hehe...I was just pointing out that this car can be quite confusing to new drivers or those just getting into this hobby and would like to thank all of you online for helping out as much as possible.

Thanks for the replies.
Not sure. Tamiya doesn't make them (yet). I asked champ, but no luck.
Some people have been using Lunsford versions I believe.

HiH

EDIT - Ah ha... found em. These are 42m (1 & 5/8") http://www.lunsfordracing.com/mm5/me...egory_Code=3MM

You know what, is one of the things I really enjoy about this hobby. Passing on info, sharing tips and tricks.... quite simply you never stop learning

Actually, my other hobby shares has this aspect too... yacht racing (and not model ones.... I'm the guy 2 back from the front, red trousersm just about to come off the rail to hoist the kite). Similar thing, so much of performance is about preperation and experience, and not just raw skill (although that helps).

Anyway, one day you never know, I might be good enought to win something in Rc

Cool body..

Hey Rod, any idea when the BIG T is going to release the alum air duct that the TRF drivers were using at the ISTC Worlds?

I'm in the final stages of building my 415 MRE (electronics, bumper & F/R body posts). I'd rather prefer to have my ESC (still debating between my two ESC - Hara Twister 2.1 or Tamiya Volac MS) be placed on top that has more space for the dbl sided tape to stick on instead of the current location on the MRE bottom deck that has the openings for the air duct.

Later again.

I think the 42mm shaft you are referring to is laid out differently to the one on the MRE.

I had these on my other 415's - i'm sure they look exactly the same as the aluminium ones on the earlier 415's.

Part# is 2520040

Default Maybe I'm just tired

Quick question.I have 2 of the screw on ballstuds that are shorter than the others and a darker blue.Any idea on what they're for?Looked thru the manual and it calls for the 5mm ones everywhere I can identify.Also,one other thing ...the ballstuds with the round collar look a bit "fragile",has anyone tried using the Associated TC4 ballstuds?Thanks,Mario.

look for a little addenum sheet in your box... the short ones go on the steering bridge.

The rounded ones are plenty strong enough. If anything, it's the old style screw-in ones that are weaker.
I sheared the Ti screws holding my servo posts in place in my "last" hit.... and the ball joints are fine.

HiH
