Thanks for the info on the 416 guys. I have one other question. Will parts from the TA05 fit on the 415. I have a bunch of parts left over from my 415, just checking.

I guess some of the parts are interchangeable. It really depends on which TA05 you have. The R model uses the same light-weight reversible suspension as the MSX's (with longer CV shafts), but the standard models do not. I guess some of the bearings, pullies, diff internals, spurs & pinions might change over, but that's really about all...

Of course nice shocks change over, but the 415's always have the nicest shocks available at the time of their release...

You may have to be more specific about the parts in question...

I think you might be running the wrong suspension blocks on that chassis run the A in the front and 'c' or 'd' in the rear and you should not have that problem

I think you're going to have to change the wheelbase so that the arm clears the bulkhead.

Rear your manual you're supposed to remove material from the arms.
Thanks for the comments guys

Arms as per manual, wheelbase as per manual

May have to find were it says remove material from the arms in the manual.

Thats what i though i would have to do if it was the right setup mod i needed to make the car turn a little more.

Thanks again for the tips

Since my last post a few days ago, the car is running much better. Had to get a Futaba s9551 servo and GTX speedy and the car is running much smoother and faster.

Im looking to get a front one way and a centre one way pulley but im not sure what parts i need to get. If someone can list the parts that i need to buy or point me to the right page in this massive thread, that would be awesome.

I believe some of the parts needed are:
Front one way pulley - 51054
Centre one way pulley - 51061

Anything else?

Thanks

Here is a link to many manuals:

http://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/manuals.htm

If your car is the MSX MRE (spool & locked center), you'll need the parts found in the MSXX manual. There quite a few different parts to get to build yourself a center one-way, so I just skipped it. My MRE runs great with the front one-way and locked center. You can try that & see if it helps...

BTW: for the front one-way you will need the one-way bearing holder, light-weight one-way drive cups & one-way pulley (with same number of teeth). You should be able to use the screws, bearings & shims from your spool...

Hello Fellow Racers, Is the one-way assembly the same on the 415 MSX and the 415 MRE??

Thanks!

The MRE's don't include one-ways. So if you want to run one, you have collect the parts from the MSXX (not the MSX). Here's a link to the manuals if you need part numbers:

You will need to modified your bulkhead to fit in the other higher mah batts. I'm currently using it with Orion 3800 hard case. See attached picture for the modification done on the red circled area.

That's the David Jun Rear suspension kit. I don't think anyone uses that anymore cause no one could figure out how it works.
