Default Hey,

Thanks guys.I thought they were for the steering,especially since I installed the steering assembly already.lol.Also for the ballstud info.Tryhard, are you by any chance refering to the 2 piece ballstuds in your answer?The MRE addendum sheet shows using the one piece ballstuds.I think I will use the 2 piece ones anyway tho.Couple more Q's...How is the included servo saver?Use it or should I just upgrade?The big one for me tho.....The suspension arms are a tight fit on the hinge pins.Should they be left that way so it all hinges in the block or should I ream them for free movement on the hinge pins?Thanks again all,Mario.

Leave the hinge-pins as they are because they don't need to move like other cars. They have flourine ball type thingys on the end which move when inside the alum blocks. Change the servo saver to a Kimbro servo saver or just use a std servo arm.

I was kinda thinking that might be the case.Wanted to be sure.Thanks.They do seem kind of "stiff"when using the grease on the ball thingys.Should I not grease them?Or will they"loosen' in a couple of runs?Mario.

They should be loose from the start.. just make sure there's just a tick of play for the arms to be free to move.. if not, you need smaller spacers. You should feel it just barely shift when you try to slide the arm forward and back along the shaft..

I'd use just an extremely light grease..

Pic of the adendum sheet I was on about. The MRE instructions show to use BC2 (the normal size), you should follow the adendum sheet which uses BB9 (the short type).

What are the steps and parts needed to use the TA05 center pulley on the 415?

Also, what benefit due you get from using the HPI steering blocks?

Thanks,

I believe people use the HPI steering blocks because it allows the use of foam tires.

Also, has anyone noticed that when running rubber tires on the MSX, when the suspension is compressed, the inside of the tire rim hits part of the suspension arm. I shaved the plastic on the arm where the rim contacts, it doesn't seem to affect the stiffness of the arm.

I was just wondering if this is the case for anyone else. I'm using RP-30 tires.

How come my adendum didn't have that correction. Now I have to disassemble the steering rack.

I know I am a little behind with the release of the MRE but I just purchased Tamiya Part #49378, the MS upgrade Parts Set. Will that effectively make my MS an MSX?

Not completely, you still have to buy the LW (Lightweight) reversable suspension arm conversion set. Which uses suspension parts from the EVO4.

RC Reversible LW Sus Set - TA05/TB02/TA04

Part #53899 for the LW suspension conversion set.

Also the conversion kit is missing the center post.

I believe you can get a center post here: Center post

It is Tamiya part #3454351.

It is a small piece of paper (8x8 cm or so) lying inside the addendum for the MRE.
