I was just wondering if this is the case for anyone else. I'm using RP-30 tires.
Correct on the foam thing. It also lowers the front axle by about 1mm, which iirc helps traction. Also changes the ackerman, in general I find it gives more steering when using the HPI hubs... but given the MRE has loads anyway I don't run them anymore. Plus I do know of numerous people who find them to be a bit brittle, personally only ever broke one.

The tyre thing... yeah it happens. It does seem to be worse on the new soft CS/RP wheel, although I did also get it on the old style. best thing to do is as you say, shave it off the arm... I'm pretty sure Tamiya know about this as well, as the new short arms don't have that bit of plastic on them.

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.
Actually, if he's got an MS, it'll already have the LWT arms. The centre post piece is correct... and the other main bit is the alloy with blades rear diff (again you can get the parts for this as well).

Anyone wanna buy my 415? Its first generation i believe. I havent ran it much. One race day at SoCal, all weekend at 2006 Tamiya Nationals (i won the B-main), and a couple times on carpet. Only thing it needs is the front belt (i knicked it with the scissors cutting a zip-tie and it broke on the next run - DOH! ), otherwise it is in excellent condition. Ive been my xray T2 mostly. Any takers?? If ya are message me with a private massage.

Actually you don't need all that. Here is the link:

The shaft is on the short side, but it can be used. Works fine.

nope, the blades arent used in the delrin outdrives on the spool...

i was gonna machine the oneway outdrives to use them, but havent yet. so far they are only used in the alloy diffs, either front or rear.

Default One final Q

Are my shocks too short?At full extension the arms are just a hair,just a hair,below level.That's downward from the chassis to the outside of the arm.Should'nt the outside edge fall a bit further than essentially level?Mario.

I find you need to unwind the shock bottoms a bit to get good droop. I find setting the shocks to 62.5mm or 63mm is a good start (measured from the top of the shock cap, to the bottom of the end joint).
And don't worry, it doesn't affect the strength of the shock bottoms.

What is the beneifit of the centre post mentioned?

Also when I put the kit together last night as per the instructions the screws that hold the steering assembly together (hold the bearings etc in place) will not pass under the front bulkheads They hit the bulkheads and thus no steering. I have had to raise the front bulkheads 1mm with a shim or two just to get enough clearance for the steering assembly to work.

Anyone have a simlar problem or a solution?

Default MSX RE Help

I'm not familar with spool diff. as in what effect it has on steering. I can't get another RE rear diff pully to run a diff in the front but I want to run this car. The local track runs 19t rubber tire on carpet. I'm not sure what to expect if i run a spool in the front.

Thanks,
John
