Is it the front or rear MR4TC diff that you use for the conversion?

What all does the TRF 415 Come with? Sway bars etc. can you put other manufactures gears on the car without a spurgear adapter?

sure... the spur holder will take most anyones gear. i used a Xenon 100T.

and the front set i mocked up were from the MR4TC Belt car, part #ZS-501, i think. they are centered. there is a lil slack on either side, but should be able to use spacers. it uses the same bearings inside of the diff, but the drive rings prolly hafta match.... might be able to use the Tamiya hardware, thrust assy, bolt, etc. and i think the F201's cvd's should take care of it. ill grab the stock dogbones/axles and mock it up this eve and shoot some pix to see where we are.
this is one of those times it pays to have a bajillion cars... and parts!

Crossing my fingers!! I should just order a set of F201 universals anyways for my F201. If they do work... they may work their way into the 415 when I need it. I don't need a diff for the 415 as I love to race with oneways... but once we go indoors for carpet.. a diff would be hella nice. Plus I could actually use this car at the Snowbirds next year.....

Randy it comes with a full set of swaybars. All the rear toe blocks. And a few extra shims for camber/roll center adjustments. All you really need are 2 sets of tuning springs and you are ready to go. Minus the body, tires, electronics.. etc. I run an RW 104 spur right now.

well, maybe these were the rear. they come as a set. here is a pic:
the F201's wont work, i dont think. those of you with them will notice that the inner bearing is huge... like the diff bearings. havent looked at the rear yet, tho... figure its the same. in this pic i have a set of unknown MIPs. might work, except i have to use a spacer between the cv and the inner bearing... not sure how that would affect the geometry...

Default Tamiya 0.4 Pinion Sets

Quick question. Are the Tamiya 0.4 Pinion Sets the pinion gears sets that you need for the 102 spur gear that comes in the kit.

Cheers

Tamiyadriver, you are not gonna use the F201 axles... just the bones. So it doesn't matter how big the F201 bearings are. Just rebuild the 415 axles with F201 bones and you should have a longer universal set.

Randy, I haven't tried the car in Mod.. yet. But so far nothing broken on the car except a body post. I did have a rear suspension block slightly bend. But that was because a Nitro car ran dead smack into the back of me during practice. Nothing broke. But the block got tweaked. That's what you get for moving over down the straight-a-way running stock to let a nitro go by.

I dunno about the pinions. I run Robinson pinions with RW Spurs. But usually with Tamiya their pinions might "fit" better with the kit spurs.

Yes, the 0.4 pinon gears are the same as standard 64 pitch pinon gears.

The internal ratio for the 415 is 2.1875

Actually they are not.....
It is only out by a small margin, but they are different. I would change to 64 pitch spurs.....
I use a 100 tooth in mine.
