Thanks...found them coming loose after each run. So only tightened them hard enuff that it didnt bind the front hub up. Wouldnt call it over tightened.

Bought it 2nd hand....bit of a toe in the water to c if I liked the racing thing.

Thanks Ed...i have the TA05 set already TAM #53842) the rear set works fine but the front is a different shape. It squares off in the corners picture attached. Only bar I can c that does similar is the TA04 bars. I think ive found the fronts and rear on ebay for a decent price.

I think you can get the non-bent bars to work with the original suspension (as I assume thats what you have on the car), as the end of the bars meet in the same place (as there is a greater angle on the 05 bars, than the 2 bend 414 ones). But in all honesty, it's been so long since I had an original 415, I can't remember! I do remember them being a pain to mount though, with the screw through the arm

IIRC, the MS (which was the first 415 to use the LWT reversable arms) came with the TA05 version bars.

This is how TAM49383 look like. It will fit both TA05 with rev. sus. arms and 415.

Do anyone have a picture of 415msx or msxx fitted with lipo?
ie. TrakPower, SMC, Team Orion & etc.

How much you need to grind off the bulkhead?

Saw those with Peak 3200 or RCM3300 few pages back.

Please share them. Thanks.

Hey Tryhard, I have a quick question about setup...

Can you possibly point me in the right direction of where to start off droop settings? I measure with a standard gauge that looks just like the Tamiya one shown here (from the bottom of the chassis up to the bottom of the upright):



I race the MSX-MRE and it's completely kit spec right now. We run on a tiny asphalt track with one-ways, -1.5* camber, and ride height is about 5.5mm. The car has some toe-out in the front but I have no way of measuring it.

On that gauge, go 5 under the front outer hinge pins, 4 under the rear. Think I only ever changed from thoose settings twice whilst running the car!

Thanks man. I'll set it up as such. Actually my Kyosho tool measures in half millimeter steps if it makes any difference...

BTW: It makes much more sense to measure to the bottom of the hinge pins as that would be a much more consistent reading with various camber settings...

It really depends on the pack you want to use, I put up pics of the SMC 5000 hardcase pack in both my 415MSX(I believe it's either in this thread or in the SMC thread for their hardcased packs) & my 416. I don't remember just how far back you'll need to look, but I do remember that I had to cut away a LOT of the rear bulkhead to get it to fit the 415, including chopping that T-post(for lack of the proper term, it's where the top chassis plate mounts in the rear, & it's connected to the motor plate) in half. Just look back aways(maybe to sometime around early April) & you should find the pics....

I know that with the SMC 4000 I can fit the battery in without any bulkhead grinding. If I remember the next time I go racing I'll take some pics. I believe I squeezed an orion 3200 pack in the car as well.

TrackPower 3200 LiPos fit in the normal 415MS/MSX/MRE/MSXX chassis without modification as well.
