Hello,
I have just purchased a new 415 at my LHS. It will be my 19t/modified car. I am new to Tamiya (well, I owned a Frog back in the day) and am unaware of any tips or tricks that the Tamiya guys have been using. Any help or recomendations would be great.
Also, for the guys already running the 415, can you recommend what spares or additional parts I will need? Modifications?

Thanks in advance!
Joe

Default LRP Race

Looks like Marc Rheinard won the LRP Touring Car Masters 2004/Germany race against some big names (Surikan, Hara, Spashett, Baker etc). I remember racing against Marc at the Tamiya Worlds a couple of years ago. If I remember correctly he came third. Good Kid and a fast driver. Congrats to Marc and his 415.

Hey Marc, if you read this, please post your setup.

Default Speedmind Tires

The 45/40 compound will have more steering than the plaid Jaco. So you will need to tune your setup to accomodate. I would suggest putting ca on the outside verticle edge of the front tires if you want to reduce some of the steering.

Koabich Not much for spares the usual knuckle and upright but honestly I hardly ever replace these usually the knuckle is replaced due to age. Pickup a set of the TA04 uprights and cut off the camberlink mount. These will give you 8d of caster.

The only thing I had to replace are wheels and an a alumnium ball end that holds the rear camber link. I have heard people having to replace belts but not for me.

The only modification I would suggest are the titanium screws. I did get the alumnium rear uprights but have yet to try them.

1) why cutoff the mounting ears, won't it drop fit into 415 with them intact?

2) thought the original TA04 upright (=8deg) didn't have the ears.
Only the later "TA04 Racing Front Suspension" uprights with the
lesser camber had the ears.

Other way around the original had the "bump" for the mount position. The reason for cutting them off is that they get in the way of the top ballstud/kingpin.

The newer have less caster

thanks, Difuser! i saw that post, but didnt have any of those on hand. i did order the spare pulley from Steve last night. i thought i had it figured out with some MR4TC drives- they fit in the bulkheads almost perfect! but, the total overall length is too short for the shafts to hit well. off to ht eHPI parts bin!

ahh, ok - you mean the original top link's mounting ear.

Me thought you meant the rear ear for the diagonal torque rod (which the earlier higher castor blocks didn't have).

Yep, makes sense now.



Guess the toplink must be sitting further "back" then... have tried old TA04 blocks on EvoIII with link on the shock tower, don't think it fouled the rod there.

Yes Marc Rheinard was the fastest driver at the track right from the beginning. He and Teemo Leino were the only drivers pulling laptimes just below 13 seconds. Hara was able for 13,15 seconds and Spashett slightly higher. In his fastest heat Marc did win by incredible 5 seconds to secondplaced Temmu Leino.

He was national champion indoor and outdoor 2002 and 3. place 2003. Hes just 17 or 18 years old now (dont know exactly) and everybody here wanna know what he can do at this years Euros and Worlds.

Regarding setups its easy. Just look for his EVO3 indoor setup. Hes using the same setup with his 415 as most of the German Tamiya drivers do. Steen Graversen wasnt that fast with this 415 until he switched to the same setup.

Default diff setup

i thought i had a flash of brilliance with this one, till i looked a little closer. doesnt look like the shafts are deep enough into the outdrives.the center is actually a little too narrow, but could be easily shimmed. anyone hear of a 45mm shaft instead of 42?
oops.. forgot pic! see next post...
