Which version of the 415 do you have? If you have the original one, then those arms are great. If you have a MS or later, get the Evo V short arms, as the uprights/c-hubs from the MS/MSX/MRE/MSXX fit it. You need to get wider toe blocks however for the Evo V arms. I run E-D (bridged) at the front and 1XA - 1D at rear.

Hello everyone,
I have an EVO 4 MS. I was in a bad crash and bent the steering arms. Are they the same ones that are used on the TB02R and the 415?
Thanks

Get The TB02R ones they are a perfect fit I had the same thing happen on my EVO4 twice and when I switched to those it worked perfect.
I don't know if the 415 ones will fit I never tried those.

No problem glad I could help. After bending 2 sets of the EVO4MS bellcranks that was the only solution I could come up with. I happened to have my TB02R with me at a race and gave it a try as they are identical in size and shape.
I was looking at a few of my 415 manuals and although those ones may work they are a diffrent size and shape and may adversely affect the steering.

I have the 415 MSX conversion. What are the part numbers for the wider toe blocks?

RC Mart have them. The part number is 9404735. Here is a link to the page:

http://preview.tinyurl.com/344vse

There seems to be extra holes where the old style (415/MS/MSX) steering posts could go, but not too sure. Might buy one soon as the old lower deck is wearing away on my car.

Here are the part numbers for the wider toe blocks, including the bridge D block, which you need for the front end:

1x 1D Bridged toe block Part# 51064
1x 1D toe block Part# 51068
1x 1E toe block Part# 53896

Default arm selection

is there a general rule of thumb on when to use the shorter evo5 arms?
i know lots of ppl use them on the msx when running foam carpet, but is it advantageous to use with rubber asphalt or rubber carpet in 19T?

what exactly does the shorter arm do?
