The 2007 MRE is supposed to come with a front spool and rear diff. Look here under "About the Model":

I've heard that the 2007 MRE model is going to be the final TRF415.

I didn't not read any lines that says that this is going to be its last 415 but I am pretty sure that this is definitely the last 415 this year for in the coming of 2008, they will produce the 416 already... The reason why they made the trf415msxx mre is that for the racers out there wont get bored of waiting for the 416... Because it is already in the plan of team tamiya to build the 416 in 2008...

Then I guess there's a typo because here is a portion of the components list:

Rear Upper Brace Separate type (new design)
Front Unit Direct drive
Center Pulley 16T
Rear Unit Direct drive
Diff. Pulley 36T

Front AND rear Direct Drive Units (Spool) would essentially make this a drifter....??

Hey double quatro. I read the same thing. Make one wonder. Maybe they will place the new 16 ball diff that marc was running at Reedy.

It clearly says in "About the model":

Race-spec direct drive system equipped with rear ball differential for quick acceleration.

Not the only typo. Notice 2.0 lower deck, and 2.5 upper deck, then later shows 2.5 lower, and 2.0 upper

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.
Actually, no I didn't - the 42mm shafts are too short and don't fit into the front one-way cups enough.

xanavi: sorry do not know the reason why our country has no PayPal account just be sure that when ordering on-line the store should have a very good reputation for customer service and satisfaction then yor card is safe to use with these online stores online stores charged you in US dollars then your card company will convert it to pesos

I'm pretty sure the 'rear direct' means no center one-way, a direct pulley setup, after Japanese to english conversion

Hey sir, do you load up your credit card with cash or do you just pay how much you spent every month???
