@ van der Hagen - sorry bro, i didn't look on the japanese page. thanks.

to me it seems pretty much like the MRE, but hey this is my first 415 so i wouldn't really be able to tell. but i will compare the car with a club memebr that has the MRE. maybe then i can give you guys a more informed answer.

other than that i will give a race report of my take on a 415MSXX after sunday!! woohoo...i cant wait to hit the track!!

Just a few early observations of the XX (vs. MRE):

2mm thick chassis
The holes on the chassis line up perfectly, except for the front end (XX has EVO5 style front end)
Tape cut outs in the chassis for 4 or 5-cell packs
Cut out for the air duct is a little thicker around the screw hole
Upper deck and bumper brace are 2mm thick

More to come.

The front end is a EVO5.

They should be available to hobby shops. Tamiya USA's website has them in stock and it says to "See your local hobby store" by the shopping cart logo. I would assume LHSs have access to it now.

are you going to experiment with the centre one way on your mre?
let us all know how you get on.it will be interesting to read about.
I have the duel one-ways on the car at the moment anyway, just using the original style layshaft (as per the 415, MS, MS) with the MRE bearing holders the other way round. I personally always prefer to use dual one-ways when running one-ways, seems to make the car smoother.

To answer your questions:

Hey RocketRacer; My Evo 5 is Fully Hopped-Up.....All Titanium and Aluminum Screws, Aluminum Servo Mounts, Aluminum Wheel Axles, Front Ball Diff and Aluminum Shock Retainers. . . . .I run Rubber Tires(Sorex 36R) on Asphalt, Peak Dynasty(19-Turn Motor), 96-Spur / 37-Pinion. . . . .My Evo 5 Runs Well now.....No hard problems..........Just a little pull to the Right problem during a Straight.
-I noticed that the TRF 415 MS Marc Rheinard Edition has White Springs.....Those White Springs might work well on My Evo 5.....?
- - - - -Anyone know the Item # of those Tamiya White Springs?- - - - -

Cool idea taking pictures of your TRF 415 MSXX build.

Please tell me the Item # of that Carbon Bumper Plate/Stopper. It looks like it will fit a Evo 5.


Hey TRF415boy; on My Evo 5 I use Rubber Tires(Sorex 36R) on Asphalt.

Thanks

Take Care
