Because it makes the car turn left when you want it to turn right

Sorry Ed couldn't resist, but I have to say I use kimbrough servo savers and had no problems at all. I wouldn't use a direct link indoors, but I have used them outdoors in the past. Now i'm too lazy to change it all so once my steering is setup for one type I can't be bothered changing it all over again

Default Need a bit of help

Hi.
I am in need of a bit of help in making a decision. The 415MSXMRE as it is as kit. Whats it like on carpet? I would be looking at changing the spool in the front to a diff or one way. Just want to know how many of you use it on carpet? and roughly what needs to be changed on the car. I know that the MRE has got its own one way and doesn't use the standard 415 one, but what about the alu. diff joints? do they fit these diff housing?
Cheers.

The MRE works very well on carpet with the shorter LW EVO5 arms (rubber tires).
I run the MRE with the MSX oneway as the new MRE one-way was not available when I set up the car (you have to shave off about a 1 mm of the pully), however now it should be easier to get the new MRE one-way right away...

If you want to get the MRE you better do it quick cause they are discontinued and all the distributers are low on stock, they were a limited run, to be replaced by the MSXX

Correct, had one on my ERG WRX... before I hit the wooden pit wall at cotswolds.. doh! Currently using the ones that come with a Yokomo BD, on both the MRE and Evo5, and work fine.

Personally, I used to find the Kimborough servo savers rubbed on the chassis when running my sanwa servo, so switched to the solid to stop that happening. I still have the kimboroughs as a fall back in case I break the solids again, but haven't yet tried it with the 9550's I now run, so may be different.

The curent metal geared servo's can take a hell of a loading before they break... and your more likely to break another part of the car before them (wishbone, servo horn etc), so the risk is minimal. Thats just my view though.

Default trf 415 msx mre

I got a question concerning the rear differential. How tight the two differential joints have to be in relation to the white pulley?.Shouls this differentials rotate around the pulley?
thanks for your help

Easiest way to tell if a diff is tight enough is to build it and install it in the car, then hold one wheel and hold the spur at the same time. Try and rotate the other wheel whilst holding the spur and the opposite wheel. If you can turn the wheel then it is to loose, tighten until ou can't move the rotate the wheel. I haven't had a problem with any diff using this method.

Looks like he attached one fan mount to the motor heatsink, then made a plate to put the fan on.
