well, those are Kyosho KX-one.might be painfully hard to round up very much longer, as that car was discontinued. i think the diff parts fit other Kyosho's, so maybe availability might be better. if i can get it to work with the cvd's

I see you guys are trying to make a front diff for the 415. As I just purchased one and race on a tight carpet track, I would be very dissapointed if Tamiya did not make one available to the general public. Is this a product Tamiya will offer in the future?

I have not yet opened the box of the car and I cannot seem to find part numbers for parts or hop-ups on the Tamiya website. I would like to try and oder some today while I am at work. Does anyone know where I can find a list of part numbers and hop-ups?
Thanks
Joe

So far no plans for a Tamiya diff that is the inside line we are hearing.

Default kumpol - Speedmind tires

Your Local Hobby shop should be able to order them from the NA distributor (Magma International) www.magmarc.com They are commonly referred to as the "multi compound" tire.

Does Tamiya normally offer front diffs for their cars (EvoIII, 414, etc..)
Thanks

Dude that is just plain sad if they dont offer a diff for the fron of this car. I would just assume that the rear could be swaped to the front.

Actually, I was wondering just that. You should be able to use the rear diff in the front, just flip it over and the belt alignment should be good. I'll have to wait to assemble mine to see if that would work!
Thanks

I heard it was not that simple... the belt pulleys do not match up front and rear....

Default front diff

You can't use the rear diff on the front. The rear diff has the pully closer to one side of the bulk head. The front diff has the pully in the center between the two bulk heads.

I agree...Tamiya should make a front diff, as they have done with all of their other cars. But they don't currently have any plans to do so.

AHHH...I just looked at a picture of the 415 on the Tamiya website. You are correct. You canot use the rear diff. The belt for the front diff runs right down the middle of the chassis and the rear diff is off-set to one side.
I assume that since they have released front diff's for their other cars they will release one for the 415. It's only a matter of time.
I might actually like the front one way. At my local carpet track, I never use the brakes...if anything I let the car coast. I have never run the one-way but I cannot imagine it being too bad if I don't use brakes!

nope... all the other cars have offset diffs... may have to use parts from another car, or some custom machining. i found 2 different types that would go, but the cvd's arent long enuff to get to them.
