Hey Tamiyarcracer and pug 205 gti; sorry about that info. If you guys have the Tamiya Blue Aluminum Turnbuckle Wrench(Item # 53602) and it fits those Tamiya 4mm Blue Aluminum Turnbuckles.....then the info I`ve got from Tower Hobbies and Dinball - RC-Mart is wrong(Tamiya America doesn`t say what size 53602 is).
-Both sites(Tower and Dinball) say that 53602 is a 3mm Wench.

Overall; Thanks for YOUR info on that Turnbuckle Wrench. I`ve always wanted a Tamiya Turnbuckle Wrench; but I thought there was no more of those 4mm Wrenches.

Thanks

Take Care

Hey pug 205 gti and/or tamiyarcracer; that Tamiya Turnbuckle Wrench(53602) is Blue Aluminum..... right?
-The Turnbuckles on your TRF 415 MSX are 4mm?
-You didn`t have to cut into the Wrench to fit over the Turnbuckles?

I went crazy looking for info about that Wrench(53602) and every site says it`s 3mm.
--I don`t understand.

Take Care

They have had it for 2 or 3 weeks. But the bigg distributors did not pick it up.
so that is why you haven't seen it in the hobby shops here in the US.

Yes it is blue, Yes the blue turnbuckles are blue. I measured it last night I promise it is 4mm. No I do not modify the turnbuckle wrench to fit my tamiya turnbuckles. The steel turnbuckles (black) are not the best fit (small) but it works on the Blue Aluminum, and the Titanium ones very well.
Pick one up, and if it doesn't fit PM me.

Default MSXX

Bought an MSXX today and was kind of bummed out. Looks like the MRE Edition is much more valuble dollar for dollar. Still, it was nice to see the improvements from my first 415 MS.



The "heart" of the MSXX:

Question: Are there two different types (i.e. short and long versions)? I thought I saw these springs advertised as short, somewhere?

The springs that Tryhard listed are standard length, or long if you wish. There was a set of a pair of each red/yellow/blue short springs sold under part #53333 and there are short springs available sold in pairs:

53630 Soft
53631 Medium
53632 Hard
53633 Extra Hard
