To my limited knowledge,I don't think Tamiya makes fan mounts. Usually we make our own fan mounts or some other 3rd party manufacturer's fan mount.

I normally run my car at 189mm in the front and rear.
Sometimes 187mm in the front to get more steering.
Thx Eirik/Steen. I'm running the same block combo as Eirik at the moment so I might give the short arms a try. You guys running 6mm hexes and one way as well on asphalt also?

Cheers,

Vincent

If you look closely, the front driveshafts look like MIP style CVD's.. my guess they are the TiR Worlds ones.

Check out the swaybar holders. Looks like they ran the EVO5 holders with an additonal dampener between the swaybar and the bulkheads.

Vincent,

I have not used a one-way since 2004 I think..... In Modified, spool is the way to go, no doubt!!
Oh yeah, I use the same track width outdoors as well, 6mm hexes always with the short arms!

I think they are the Evo4 ones. They are a exact fit for the front bulkhead, but need the centre section chopped out to fit the rear.

Post TRF415 Front Diff with TA05 Diff Pulley

Quick question to my fellow 415ers.

Has anyone used the recently released TRF415 alum front diff with the TA05 std/wide pitch pullies on either their MSX or MRE?

Thanks.

Yes sir. Only on carpet with my MRE. The first time I used it, it loosened up a lot. I tightened it and now it works perfect.

It's a modified motor heatsink. How it was made:

Take a heatsink.
Drill a 3mm hole into heatsink.
Tap 3mm hole in heatsink.
Cut down a Dark Impact beam.
Tap 3mm hole in beam.
Use a 12-15mm droop screw with loctite to attach both pieces to each other.
Make sure that there is clearance so that the beam does not hit the motor (dremel beam material if necessary)
Screw fan to beam.

It would be an easy update to the heatsinks if Tamiya Japan wishes to create such a hop up.

Here's one we made at the KO Race...the Dark Impact beams were in the warehouse so we couldn't get to them...we ended up cutting down a 415 beam.

Also, please note that if you get T-Boned or have an accident that causes a hard object to impact the motor side of your car...you can kiss the fan good bye.
