A lot of guys here are hoping to enter and run the 415 at the upcoming Reedy Race which calls for a "no oneway" rule. Thus a few here are trying different stuff to get their cars legal... hence you got the spool setups and different diff setups... Hope this helps clarify why there is a "hunt for the perfect 415 diff alternative..." ***(OOPS, somebody already answered this... sorry for double posting...)

I would just buy an extra shaft and 2 extra pulleys. Cut one end of the pulley's off and then JB weld everything to the shaft. Just be sure to center the pulley first on the car with one of the locked pulleys before you do so.

Doing the JB will make it so you have to pull off one side of the bulkheads. The pinning is going to be a pain without a jig to make sure all is straight. I like Beale's idea but I am not sure it will be available to the public.

As far as hacking the spur holder it is easily done with a dremel should take about 5 min max. 2-3mm is not much to remove from the holder. the only part is figuring out a shim when using the 1-way in the future a shock spacer or.... should do the trick.

Just think you can buy the super duper Ti version to replace it.

Ran my 2nd car today indoor on carpet with the 6 deg ta04 caster blocks on and it held the line 100% better in the middle of the turn where as without them it would push mid corner round the fast ones. Also this one has cut belts on and its bloody free!

As for pulling off one side of the bulk heads... I think that's the least of your worries. I mean if we are converting oneway setup to diff/spool setup... you'd have to take the front apart anyways to replace the oneway with a diff... or visa versa. Of course the point of replacing the spur would be harder..

The pin idea would be easy. Just mount the 2 pulleys on the shaft. Lock them down and then drill the 2 holes. This way they are already aligned. Drill one hole. Slide in the pin. Drill the next. Slide in the pin. Pull the pulleys off the shaft. Then cut one down to size. Done.

4 is on the 414, Evo3 and 415. 6 I beleive are the newer TA04's. The 8 I'm not sure. I think they are the older ones from the earlier TA04's. They have the uhhh ears ontop for the camber link. You'd have to cut them off to allow you to put a ball connector/kingpin ontop and not interfere with the camber link. Let me search for part numbers real quick......
