Difference is the bearing spacing is different. Also the rear diff is on the left on the TA05, and the right on the 415.

I was wondering what the difference between running a center one way pulley and a direct drive center pulley on carpet is. Which is better? Why? Thanks

Hmm stickpack MSXX chassis is coming. Wonder if the Orion 4800 will fit for MRE/MSXX now?

HiH

yeah, I've checked on mine (with the plastic ones) and realise that even the screw is shorter...

anyway, I've been toying with the idea of a front diff... there's no way to put the rear diff in the front... Is there any alternative?

thanks again,

JAAD Racing (link in sig) make one a nice blue alloy one, you can get them through Precision Rc. Otherwise, there is the tamiya one (TAM53921)

TryHard: thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge....

anyway, other quickie... do you use threadlock anywhere in the car (bulkheads, suspension blocks)?? I have had to use some in the past on my mission to get the topdeck secure, so I wonder if someone also use it on the 415 as well....

cheers,

cheers,
I only ever used threadlock when building the car new. I personally find that if you but a small amount on the screws during the initial build, it stays happily in the threads of bulkheads etc, and then there is no need to re threadlock the parts during rebuild.
Obviously a check of all the screws should be a regular maintence thing though.

I've only used thread lock on kingpins into the front upright, when they are the RC Square aluminium type. Otherwise I leave things as normal.

I only ever use threadlock on the grub screws in the driveshafts and the screws on the front spool pulley

Exclamation Novak GTB Profile & Gearing

Need help.

Just finished installing my Novak GTB & 13.5R BL motor yesterday on my TRF415 MRE.

Need to know what profile do I use & proper gearing (default profile is set a #1). My 415 MRE uses Xenon 102T 64P spurgear with 38T 64P pinion gear = 6.04 final gear ratio.

Would that be a suitable gear ratio on a med-size track?

Any suggestions will help.

Thanks.
