are the 0.4 module tamiya gears 64 pitch?? Would the ratio be the same though?? They seem to be very identical in size.

The spur that comes with the 415 is a Tamiya 64 pitch. This is basically a metric version of a 64 pitch and will not offer an exact fit for the 64 pitch pinion gears we have in the states. I would buy a normal 64 pitch spur from your LHS.

The .4 gears are metric 64pitch. They are very very close. But not exactly. You can run the stock spur with 64pitch pinions. But the car will be alittle noisey due to the "imperfect" gear mesh. I don't run the stock spur. I run a RW 104 64pitch spur. Very nice.. very smooth and quiet.

Thanks for all your replies. Last night my 415 went fairly well on its first run. I used a 78Spur on a monster paired with 22Pinion. Smooth quite i love this car

Hi -

Since I understand that Tech Racing was very instrumental in the design of the 415 I thought some folks would be interested in seeing some pics of a prototype from a little while back...

http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.p...a&pagenumber=3

Scroll down and see what I mean - looks like it uses gears and TC3 parts...

cheers

Dave

Default Monster Stock Gearing

Just curious looking for a base gearing for a monster stock. Im currently using 75Spur on 20Pinion. Its not bad but im curious what the other stock guys are using. Running on a semi technical low grip track. Small track also, thanks guys.

Not any more , i spotted Ben testing at Ashby with the 415 a week or so ago before the deal was sorted out. Ben looked to be right at home straight away with the 415 putting in some very smooth and fast laps.

Well done Ben , we told you that you could do it with the Tamiya.

Shame i could not get to bedworth to see it for myself.

YEAH !!! it was AMAZING to watch, to be fair all the drivers were sooo good i watched bens car with extra care ( being a 415 n all ) i just noticed that it seemed to hold this tiny bit more corner speed well thats what i thought, he was able to take corners tighter with out loosing much speed.

Well done 100% wicked'ness

nice to see Tamiya being represented at a competitive level once again ( Torc win in stock ) hopefully it will mean more interest for Tamiya in the UK?

Talking to the BRCA chairman i asked him why tamiya cars are so over priced in the UK, he told me they arent... they are just expensive!

Oh well...

I was wondering what pinion number are you using with the 104 size spur? Is it for stock or mod?

racenut123...

Only if I hade better tires, my car would be faster. I had a hard time keeping it from spinning around. I was surprised that I made it into the "A" main, haha. Your SD was way fast! I had to move out of the way so I wouldn't get punted into the wall! HAhaha!
