here is the supplement for the MRE manual
http://www.tamiya.com/japan/rc/rcman...4trf415msx.pdf

here is the MSXX manual
http://www.tamiya.com/japan/rc/rcmanual/trf415msxx.pdf

you can find all the part #'s there

MSXX has a thinner lower deck and a flexible upper deck also has the air duct
MRE has the thicker lower deck, and a stiffer upper deck

Both have the same steering.

You can just see the milling on the motor mount in one of the pics too. How much did the guys take off?? 1-1.5mm?

And the bulkhead was milled about 1mm.
Been looking at the steering again.
Just tried flipping the bell cranks over, and running them higher, as per the pics of Marc's and Mazeumi's cars. Assuming they aren't using new steering posts... the steeringball joints end up in the same place, 10.4mm above the chassis plate. And guess what, same height with the standard MRE setup

I'm guessing then that the steering setup run at the reedy is too help out on belt clearance as well... and PT.

Ed

Agreed...I believe David Jun also has the same helmet that you have. How's that saying go? Great minds...are in the gutter?

Well as for me....

No not yet, was just mucking about with my car last night, fitting a few treats to it, and thought I'd see how that steering setup works. All you really need is some cut steering collars from an Evo5 to make it work (to stop the bell cranks riding up the posts).

Not racing at all at the moment, last time I ran was over a month ago, and won't be racing again till mid july. Taking the time to give my car a bit of a re-fresh (new drivtrain components etc), and testing out little bits like the steering.... that is when I'm not in the gym or out sailing. Got a Worlds I'm training for you see... (it's me in the red top)

Ed

I have a 415MS and have damaged lower chassis.Id like to know if the MSX or MRE chassis would fit.
Seems our local agent cant get spares for the MS.

I don't think the MRE would fit because the steering system is different on the MRE...I'm not sure about the MSX. I'm sure some of the other guys on here are more knowledgeable than I am, but definitely a no on the MRE.

MRE chassis will fit and be the same thickness, the msxx chassis will also fit but is 2mm thick only so it will have more flex, which you may or may not want depending on the surface and tyres you race on.

That's what's good with tamiya 415 series, the new chassis still have the holes for the old steering and posts etc... So you can use the new chassis plates on the standard 415 or the MS/MSX.
