The lightweight ones are for pure performace... The 1st time I built my MRE, I immediately kept those and got steel ones for my MRE before these things happen.

Great that you've found out your problem.

they have to be modified slightly to work. but they will get the job done, would reccomend getting the replacements for the mre.
-
has anyone had any issues w/ chassis tweak? by this I mean, I set the ride height correctly front to rear, but when i measure the chassis height in the middle of the chassis, the electronics side hangs down about a mm lower than the batterside, specifically where the servo mounts.
I loosened all of the screws and flattened the chassis on my tweak board, then re-tightened everything back up, but no help.
-
short of stripping it down and checking the chassis, has anyone had this issue before?

Thanks.

btw, this car rocks!

Personally (and this is just me), I prefer to make sure the tweak of the car is perfect, so get it set best on the tweak board. Then I'll set the ride height, by adjusting the collars on both sides equally. If the ride height is off a bit (say .5mm difference) I don't worry about it, as long as everything is level on the tweak board. Equal pressures on the wheels is more important than having a level ride height, IMO.

Also, I only ever measure the chassis height at the very front and at the very rear, never in the middle... mainly as I like to run a bit of rake.

IF you still worried, strip the car down fully, and check the chassis plate isn't warped... I tend to find I don't need much difference in shock collar adjustment on the MRE.

Hey TRF 415 MSX Guys. I have a TB Evo 5 and I`ll like to know if Item # 53938 - Aluminum Rear Uprights($51.00) is set at 0-Degrees?

-The TB Evo 5 comes with Item # 53807 - 0-Degree Rear Uprights($51.00).
I would like to get those Rear Uprights; but only if they`re set at 0-Degrees.

Thanks

Take Care

I`ve read that 53938 - Rear Upright has the Bearing set lower and it makes the kit/car turn better on high - traction tracks. . . . .It`s a TRF Thing.....Ha Ha!

Default ride height difference

Check your shock towers ..there is enough slop up and down to cause 1mm .Just loosen and either pull up or push down and tighten.Might help you.

hmm, didn't know that. tamiya's site doesn't specify that it is 0 degree, however it does show a 0 on the hub

I thought the TRF 415 MSX Marc Rheinard Edition Kit comes with 53938? Anyone out here have the Marc Rheinard?
-The Rear Uprights have H 0 on it. . . . .What does that mean?

I`ve read that a few of you guys say that the Aluminum Wheel Axles(Item # 53939 - $23.50 for 2) will bend.....Wow.
-I`ve seen those Axles; they`re thick(the exact same) as the Steel Axles(Item # 51094).
- -Did anyone crash with those axles on their kit/car? I think that`s the only way they`ll bend.....?. . . . .Tell me what`s up.

I`m thinking about getting those Aluminum Wheel Axles for My TB Evo 5; you guys could save me $47.00.....Thanks.
