Quick Plug....

Anyone looking for a brand new, never used MSXX bottom plate (2mm thick) shoot me a PM. As the 415 is going... no need for it anymore. It's even had the edges glued!

Regards
Ed

Are these batteries can fit into MSX415 battery area ? I'm worry the battery is too thick and I have to cut some material from rear alluminium bulkhead.


45mm X 138mm X 18mm

or



34mm X 98mm X 32mm

I don't know... but I'm highly suspecious of the MaxAmps packs though, simply as the don't come in a hard case, something I consider essential for touring cars.

okey, thanks.

I measured my MSX battery area, and it can accept 45mm X 138mm X 18mm ( lipo 5000Mah ) very nicely.

I 'm gonna add 3mm rubber strip on the outside to protect the battery from side impact.

I am currently running the Maxamps 5000 in my MSXX with no problems at all. You can dremel the bulkhead if you need a little more room. 6 months of racing and hardly a scratch on the battery.

I'm sure there are plenty who are too... however I'm no longer one of them... so have made some alterations to my site to reflect that. It's now going to be a 416 resource....

However, don't fret, I've kept all of the 415 info on there (it's even given me the opportunity to finally sort out some little niggles), it's just not on the main page.

www.thard.co.uk/415 is the address you now need.

Last update includes the 16 ball rear diff, and the flex characteristics, plus adding in some of the last setups I had to add. And I doubt very much I'll add any more to it now... Thank you 415, you were very good to me (shedding a small tear )

Regards
Ed

G'day
Can any body tell me if anyone has run the S400 rear gear diff in a 415msx.
if so will it fit without any shimming and what oil is used for mod/asphalt high grip.
Thanks Steven.

Just looking for clarification on what kit I need to get for my MSX MRE so I can fit lipos like in the above picture.

Can I used the stick pack MSXX kit with just the MRX or will I need to order some different parts to get it to work? (link below)

or do I need to get the MSX? (link below)

Hello, new owner of a ~new 415msx and am in the midst of getting some front braking. I've just finished completing the front diff assembly using JAAD and Tamiya parts but have been rudely reminded that the MSX has a center front one-way on it was well.

Can someone point me to a good, reliable online site that sells to Canada the would carry the direct drive center pulley? Also hoping to find the HPI parts needed to convert the front of my car to be compatible with 28mm foams too.

Thanks.

Anyone got a list of in which order they were made?

Thanks

Thanks, thats really useful What are the differences between the msxx and the msxx mre? Am I really going to notice the difference between the two?

is the msxx quite fragile, or a solid car? I have a ta05 with the 3racing graphite chassis and its a tank, solid as a rock! I heard the bearings can be fragile as they are ceramic, any experiences? (I could be wrong)

thanks.
