Default which 415 is best?

I'm looking to a belt drive TC and looking at the 415 but not sure which model to shoot for. What are the good and bad, as well as the differences (other than price) between the MS, MSX, MRE, MSXX, and the Refine 2? Which is best for foam/carpet racing on a small track? I'll be running it in a 4300 brushless/lipo class. Thanks for any info you can give.

The original TRF415 is a very good carpet car, mainly because it has a stiffer chassis then the following models. The MS is strictly for asphat, the MSX(same as the refine 2), is a good carpet choice, because you can get a 4MM thick lower chassis for the increased stiffness needed for carpet, in addition, the MSX has the easy diff access front and rear bulkheads, that the original TRF415 didn't have. The MRE and MSXX have the improved steering and more efficient drive-train.

Hello
Can you tell me what tuning do i need to buy to make my TRF415MSX MRE fast on the carpet track on rubber tires. I already have piston with 3 holes. Set of springs including very hard and ultra hard (is it good idea to use very hard and ultra hard springs on carpet with rubber?). I also have 6mm silver hex. I have one-way and spool.

What about suspension, should i use arms 53928? I heard that they are better for carpet.

What next?

Hi Tral,

Most people use just the White and Blue Tamiya springs on carpet with rubbers. I've also found the Short suspension arms very good on carpet.
A one-way unit is a good idea as well, I personally run both front and centre one-ways. Have a look at my setup from further up the page, I found that really good this past weekend.

HiH
Ed

On Carpet with rubber you want to stick to the tamiya white on front and blue on the rear.

Basically I'd recommend to try the setup TryHard has posted on this same page as it's a setup that's been worked on for some time. And if there's enough grip i'd stick to a one way.

Default I'm out

Hey,

Just wanted to let my fellow 415 drivers know that I have decided to leave the hobby. It's been a lot of fun, but due to the health affects of the chemicals we currently use (eg. traction compounds, etc) I have decided to get out. Some of you may have already read my thread on traction compound health issues already. I might come back if thngs are done to reduce or eliminate exposure to these chemicals, but that is unknown at this time.

Anyway, good luck and represent tamiya with pride.
