Default google it - duh!

I did a quick search for 'trf415msx conversion', and this was the first thing that came up.

I need some help finding part # 3454404 TFR415MSX MRE Finned Aluminum Upper Brace.

If anyone has one for sale or knows a retailer that has one it would be a great help.

Thanks Tom

I did a quick search for 'Tamiya #3454404'.

Tamiya USA is out of stock.
4th listing in the seach shows a retailer that carries the part.

You guys need to learn how to Google.

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

I got the Square steering knuckles from RC Mushroom. Expensive (US$33), but great. They fit perfectly, and the third hole is a plus.

If you do end up replacing both the hub and hub-carrier with aluminum parts, you might breaking suspension arms or bending hinge pins often. The arms are really brittle on the Lightweight suspension.

Default General q's

A couple of questions I am new to 415.

It appears that two steering racks are available Mre style and standard style.

It also appears that the standard rack is used on carpet with foam or rubber tires. Does the standard rack provide more or less overall steering than the mre setup?

Is it just a different ackerman setting?

What is the difference between the standard arms and short reversible arms?

Are the short reversible arms similar in length to standard arms and just allow you to use the smaller 2.5 outer hinge pin?

Thanks

Jamie

The white belts and the white pulleys will actually fit on the MSX, you will just have to adjust the belt tensioner to compensate for the longer pulleys. Yes, racers will tell you that the belt is not the proper one to use with that pulley but it does work. I've used it and it will work!
