just to clarify.....if you have "A/A" blocks..and run the regular suspension.. then go to the "short" arms... you need to use D/D suspension blocks

there is a 1.0x mm difference in width between an A bridge block and D bridge block.

short arms are 1mm shorter than the regular suspension.

Tek Nickal;

Then your IDR is 2.1875. To get close to 10, 88/20x2.1875 = 9.625. And 88/19x2.1875 = 10.132, which is closer to 10. Although 87/19 gets you closest with 10.01

Guess I shouldn't have assumed he was running the newer pullies.

I believe they have both the MRE SPOOL and the Center pulley. I was there Sunday and I believe they had them!
Call first!

Default Fitting MRE MSX with Lipo from Orion

Hi guys,

Just a quick check, did anyone managed to fit Orion's Lipo into MRE? Both the 3200 and 4800? Got any pictures, thanks.

Regards,
MW

If anyone 415 owners want to go Lipo without the expense of the stick pack chassis, look into the MaxAmp 5000's. They slide straight under the bulkhead without mods! Haven't run them yet but all reports are they are as good as any Lipos out there.

I wouldn't wait for a kind which don't come in short moments, for all new redesigned trf chassis, until they couldn't make it, still releasing trf 415 new versions frequently, with new parts and design.
I will only upgrade my trf 415 with new parts appeared on these new kits, also take a look on the pictures of international races, what did the team drivers upgrade on their car then i will try to do the similar.

I believe thats exactly what they did, change the car to what the team drivers were doing. They would cut that rear upper brace to give the car equal flex on both sides. Also I think the new shocks have a greater tolerance between the piston and the shock body, thats been a problem for a while. Don't know too much about the top deck though. Looks like they have redesigned stickers, thats a great development. I was getting tired of the look of the older TRF stickers. Can't wait to put those on my car.

I wish Tamiya would release a OEM diff pully to accomodate the 16 balls that some TRF drivers were running. That would have been a great addition to the 2007 MRE kit. Anyone have step-by-step instructions to the diff mod (16 balls I think) ?

Also, I saw the new MRE kit comes with a rear spool ? Anyone have experience with that setup? I read in previous postings that it is only appropriate for foam and not rubber/asphalt setups. Does that mean the latest MRE kit is mostly set-up for carpet/foam?

I'm a TA05R runner (Kawada CF Chassis) and am looking to upgrade to the 415....maybe wait for 416.

Thanks.....
