Default MSXX & MRE

If anyone is interested.

And MR's chassis was a 2.5mm MSXX (in the last pic) with no five cell cut-outs.

I believe the weight limit was 1420 in 5-cell at the reedy race, so he may have weights even with the 25mm chassis.

Can anybody help me out there with a setup for my 415 that I just brought over ebay. I run on a track that is tight with a medium straight. The surface is a concrete with painted asphalt surface the grip is reasonable. I have never had a trf415 always been a XRAY boy but now I want something different to run so I picked the TRF415 as that its a great looking car.

Any setup tips would be grateful

That's because he's flipped the suspension block upside down. So you need to run a 3mm shim to space it up right. But he's probably running some anti dive up front.. hence the extra 2mm shim in there.

Old Steering on that first car too.... and with a flipped front block, so I guess B/XB on the front (looks like a B on the front).

I believe he used the second car (MRE, with MSXX top deck).
I've only fitted the flipped steering to the car, I didn't actually run it. Need some Evo5 steering post tubes cut down to run it. I'm not sure how much difference it will make, as the ball joints were still in the same place as the present MRE steering... unless the reedy cars had different steering posts to raise/lower the rack.

HPI Springs are sometimes used as the can provide rates between the tamiya springs, and some drivers believe they are more consistent in rates.

Well I guess he did run the short arms and he had 2mm of kick-up, I don't know how many degrees it is though. Must have been looking for lots of steering.

now, I can't figure this out...
why would you go to all the effort to customise that MRE with an MSXX top deck, 18t pulleys, cut centre brace, and flipped evo5 steering, just to have it as a photo car...

The first car seems to have the short arms all round, and the old style steering. It does seem as though it has wide blocks on the rear though, (pretty sure it's X/E). Still has the std 16t pulleys on too... 2.5mm chassis though, you can tell by the front bumper mount, and no extra slots for cell tape.

Who knows...

I spoke to Viktor last week about the cars they where running.
The car with the short arms are the one they used in Germany the week before the RROC. Viktor tested both cars, but liked the Standard MSXX better than the "old" car and used that one.
Seems like Marc liked the more responsive car better and used that one.

As for the front blocks, I am pretty sure Marc used something like D-B up front. (they used D-D) in Germany.
Thats why there are about 5mm shims under the rear front block. The standard blocks need to be shimmed 5mm and the X blocks only needs 3mm.
The car would be way too narrow with B-XB.... the distance between the arm and bulkhead is also quite big so I am guessing he used D-B.

Hope this clear it up
