Thank you Steven; I believe the same .. but ... Is there anyone who can check it or know it for sure?

The REAR DAMPER STAY for "TRF 415 MS" is #51191
The REAR DAMPER STAY for "TRF 415 MSXX" is #4305555

Not all the parts are interchangeble -> have a few at home already

Default 415 MSX EXTERNAL diff adjustment

Yes you can adjust your 415 MSX rear differential externally..............here are some step of a little modification you need:

step: 1

First you need to disable your rear differential
step: 2

You need to dremel the bolts so that 1.5mm hex can fit into the bolts
step:3

make sure you dremel enough so that 1.5mm hex can fit in
step:4

You need to reassemble the diff i already attached the picture, this is different from the manual instruction
step:5

step:6

Inset hex key 1.5mm hold it and grab the rear right wheel clockwise to tighten the rear diff and counter clock wise to loosen the diff
step:7


Enjoy your external diff adjustmet 416 style

also you can try:

1. add a bit postive toe in on the rear. such as -3 to -2 degree

2. use the 2 degree castor c-hub instead of the 4 degree.

3. the last thing you want to do is, to change to harder spring on the rear, or change to softer spring on the front.

Drag-on. Good to see at this can make externally now for 415

Now it`s much easier to do it

Thanks to share that

Steven. You drive MRE wright?

I chance those Tamiya belts like i mentioned earlier and they are much better fit than those other belts.

Also i put 16t middlepulleys back and IR is now 2.18 and that`s the way i`ll use it next time when i go outdoor racing

I tried cutting the holes in the wing and it made the car unstable. I covered the holes with tape and my handling problems went away. I wouldn't do that again

Nice work Drag_On, I've got a spare 415 diff plus spare diff screws, might give that a try.

Default Lipo batteries

Casino,
Did you have to grind off any of the rear aluminum bulkhead to fit the Lipo battery? Do you know which Lipos fit without any modification?

The battery that requires the least modification is the Orion 3200. You can get away with not grinding anything but it will rub just slightly and you do have to coax it into the place.

Casino Kid- I'm glad to see someone fit the SMC pack because I plan to get one. Please can you take a side view picture of how much you grinded the bulkhead?

Gday guys
as far as the batteries are concerned NO you don't have to grid any part off the bulk head PERFECT fit.
SMC 4000 are the ideal lipo combined with a G.T.Power A6 Charger wich gives you all of the settings for lilo/lipo/life,nicad/nimhand lead acid.
As well as a program for your pc (simple program) you can save all of your datta from each battery.
