you can order them direct from Lunsford, I think it's 1"5/8ths (same length). I ordered two sets (one for MRE, one for Evo5), and they were here witihin a few days Not bad if you ask me.

I noticed there are no setup sheets for the mre, does anyone know if the msx setup sheets from the reedy race would transfer correctly to the setup of the mre, or do i just build the car according to the manual and that is the setup to run.

thanks

Probably because Numan and Marc were running the newer steering then.

I was told that to run the spool I need a fixed centre pulley? As I have just received my parts order from rc_champ and it wasn't on the order is there a way I can fix my centre one way pulley temporarily until I need to order more parts? and what effect will running the centre one way pulley with a spool have?

Cheers

I have searched the thread in reference to the difference in height of the upper deck between the original 415 and the msx to no avail. Does anyone know how much lower the msx upper deck is vs the original 415??

Measuring says 34mm on the 415 and 25 mm on the MSX, so nine mm lower.

For a quick fix for the centre pulley you could maybe flip the one-way around (so it spins backwards not forward), not sure if this would work but you could give it a try.

That could be very damaging to the one way isn't it??

not sure if it's damaging but basically you're accelerating with the rear wheel only. which i feel won't work the same as fixed center pulley.

if it can be done in the first place, tamiya won't come out with a center fixed pulley in the first place....

Doing this with a spool makes out a 2WD car with 4 wheel braking.

So basically when you install the center one-way backwards you don't get any power transferred to the front wheels, except braking and reverse.

Unhappy Carpet Madness!

Fellow racers,
I'm looking for a good set-up for carpet using rubber tires. RP's mostly.
I got a couple of tips from previous posts and saw the Mark set-up online but this is with Foam tires so I would like a complete set-up for carpet.
I have the MSX using the 3mm chassis. Come on now all you Nor Cal guys up there! You know who I'm talking about. Past TCS champions, etc. etc.
I'm hoping to get responses from back east would be nice and the U.K.!
All suggestion will be appreciated! Anybody......Anybody......Anybody!
Thanks in advance!
A loyal Tamiya racer!
