very similar to TRF shocks but the plastic parts on the TM are much higher qualit, no slop and the top part is one piece aluminium. Once this season is over I ll sell teh 2 sets of TRF shocks I have and buy one set of these babies....



except that like I said the 2mil chassis might be good to get to test, but untill the 416 comes out and gets to the MSX MRE level I ll be sticking with the 415.

the 415 needs a center mounted steering with the servo rotated 90 degrees... I hate cutting my servo ears just because someone messed up at the design phase

i dunno whether we can used 501X pulley on 415 or not since i look over the pic the diff already have 12 diff ball hole but i think 18 diff ball will even last longer.

Last night i chance that 18t middle pulley to my MRE. And HB Cyclone belt up front and xray 007`rear belt and they fit perfectly. Now IR chance 2.0 after that, so i must chance my gear ratio sheet. I may try that next weekend if not rain

I believe the website said to use the TA05 pulley and drill extra holes,but use the 501X diff plates. The diff plates are wider to compensate for the extra diff balls. Then use aftermarket Thrust bearings 2x6mm Squat S192. This makes sense!
This should be great for running brushless motors, they have so much torque it it wiped out my used ball diff after a couple of runs.

Tungsten Carbide is a harder material than the standard diff balls.
Ceramic is suppose to be stonger and more heat resistant than carbide!
Theoretically speaking of coarse!
