I might try out the C-A setup this weekend and report its results on Monday. The front one way doesn't bind with that toe block setup, so might be another option for people wanting to run the one way on their 415 without having to change the outdrives.

Tamiya springs go;
Red - Soft (~11.8lb)
Yellow - Medium (~13.3lb)
Blue - Hard (~14.1lb)
White - Extra Hard (~15.3lb)
Grey - Super Hard (~20.9lb)
Purple - Ultra Hard (~22.7lb)

The yellows go on the rear on the MRE, so harder front than rear.

You should see a dot of blue or yellow paint on the bottom of the spring.

if you don't see any paint, then they are actually white springs. Someone had the brilliant idea to do this to try and hide their setup from people

-49197 - Tamiya Turnbuckle Wrench is the Blue Aluminum Wrench.

They could be both 4mm Wrenches; but in different colors.

I`ll get back with direct info on it.

Take Care
I just measured the 53602 and it is 4.10mm It is blue.
The 49197 is blue also, it is now discontinued. It was also 4mm. I believe what the difference is, is that the 49197 was a limited production run. then the decided to add it to the Hop up parts line

With my Associated gauge i generally run 2 on the rear and 3 on the front. I think a lot of people run less droop than me so maybe try 3 rear and 4 front for starting out (droop screws tightened down more).
