I might drive one of those as well, but someone at the Tamiya offices will have one I can take a look at. I would get the MSXX MRE for a shelf piece anyways.

you can reuse the plastic pulley but not the Aluminum one with the one-way bearing in it. You need one more plastic pulley for the center shaft.

I have a question for the people who run the original TRF415MSX. In the picture attached the part BD1 (5 by 7 by 9 mm spacer) goes above the steering arms and slips over the top of the steering posts. When you attach the upper deck part BP4 and screw it down, do the steering arms and the spacer have much vertical play on the steering posts? Mine seems to move up and down a little.

Yes the play is normal and will get worse with wear. you can use some shims to take it out just make sure that you don't make it to tight.

nice one thanks for the pic looks awsome.
ive just rebuilt my msxx because it was handleing like a pig compared to my old msx.

ive got the same setup as i had on my msx and it just spins out on corners no corner speed.
i havent noticed to many diferences between the two cars so i dont understand how it reacts so much different.
ive noticed that the balance from one side of the car to the other is quite a bit diferent so ive added some weight on the motor side to try and even it out.

iam begining to think that i should have stuck with my old msx

Skiv,
The steering setup of the MSXX requires a slightly different setup to your MSX.
I would recomend starting off at the kit setup first, then making adjustments.
Can you post your current setup, and what surface etc your running?

Hopefully we can all help out

Ed

Haha, you probably did meet me... didn't do too well myself, but I was running a Type-R that weekend. Actually was using the MRE for a bit of practise/fun that weekend...Car wasn't too different from kit if iirc, though that was with a 7x1 in!

The setup shouldn't be massively different, but then again, depends how you had the MSX setup...

Regards
Ed

Try Hard :

What is the advantage of using 16 Balls Diff Modification compared to 8 Balls Diff Stock of MRE in Running stock 23T? Does it Really have Advantage?? What's the purpose of that modification? I tried Running Both Diffs but i don't see any difference. Thanks sir!

TBH... I didn't find an advantage when running stock. I've gone back to the standard 9balll MRE diff for the moment, as it's lighter.
However, for thoose running Modified, certainly should be an advantage in terms of reduced wear and tear on the parts, simply as there are more balls to take the pressure exerted on the diff high powered mod/BL motors.

Yes, although you will also need the plastic pulleys (16t or 18t your pick). You'll also and need to turn the bearing holders around, as the bearings are held captive by the shaft pushing them into the holder.
