BTW, I did my first trackday last weekend with Edgar and Dave. It was AWESOME and I learned a lot about my bike and myself as a rider. Bike is fast and capbale, rider is slow and a wussy

They were Team Atlas covers and yeh, they look exactly the same as the Tamiya ones just released. I didn't really notice much of a difference on the 415 when I had, as well as with the Cyclone now. Personally, I think the best solution for diff covers has to be what XRay have with their pulleys, but that would mean that Tamiya and Hotbodies would have to release new pulleys with this feature.

If you ever get a chance, see how XRay do their pulleys/covers. Works like a treat!

Planning on running Lipo packs in my MRe once I get it. Do I need any additional battery mount hardware? Is it gonna require drilling holes in my chassis? Does anyone make a velco battery hold down that I can use? I dont like using tape if possible.

Well just put the MRE steering in, looks nice lol. Also appears to have a lot more turn but it also moves the belt! What sort of spacers have you guys put on? The manual states 0.5mm top and bottom (I didn;'t have those spacers so have used 5 * 0.1mm shims) has anyone fiddled with these?

Heya, folks.. just picked up a used 415MSX, just wondering what parts I need to get it running the TA05 pulleys.. I have a few spares from my TA05, but just want to make sure before I rip stuff apart..

Will the alternated type work, or do you have to stick with the regular ones? Will the one-way work the same way?

Is the spur holder in the MSXX the same as the TA05's? I looked at the parts listing and it's just called Spur Gear Holder: 49419 and Pulley Holder: 49419, referring to the MSXX kit..

I'm not sure about the spur shaft.. looks like the lightweight one doesn't have the c-clips needed to keep those bearing holders in place, and I just need the original TA05 shaft.. is that correct?

I assume the white belts will work fine, just need to reduce the tension on the belts with the larger pulleys...

I remember a conversation about it a while back, but I can't find the search-thread option since they changed the look of the forum...

Thanks a bunch!
James

The 36t diff pulley (regular or alternated) is a direct fit, but for the one-way pulley, you either have to get the new MSXX oneway to have that pulley fit or have some way of milling it and making it less thick.

I am not sure whether the center layshaft from the TA05 will fit the MSX, it probably won't.

The white belts will work fine as long as you set your belt tension to one of the loosest positions. I suggest getting the newer belts and running the plastic center pulleys, the new belts have a different tooth profile and the plastic center pulleys put less wear on the belts.

did this friend of yours bought it online or personally? That's cheap, I think. Maybe, if ever we're going to have the MSXX here already in the Philippines, the price would be more or less likely, around 25k. I magine the gap of the price from hongkong, or other countries.

he bought it from Hongkong personally i think 25K will be too much for the MSXX since i bought my MRE slightly lower than that price( 24K) i think if ever our LHS will have the stock it should be around 19 to 20K and i think it will be already a very fair price
