Thanks. I think I'll just grind off the hump on my stock bulkhead and get a spare piece for NIMH. Even the bulkhead is at least 50 bucks..

BTW: The bulkhead parts and upper deck alone at $122 cost more than the entire conversion that can be had for $99. And TamiyaUSA is the only place that has them (according to google)...

Just dusted off my very old 415 as im returning to racing now brushless and lipo are getting so popular, was going to get a new Xray 009 but checked my old car for lipo fitment and seeing as they drop straight in and im a tamiya nut im planning on running the 415 instead.

Just got a short list of worn parts needing replacment such as ball cups, diff outdrives and wheel axles.

Any gains to be had in running the newer short arms on the 415 ( first version ) and if so what else needs to be changed ? part numbers or links would be a great help.

Any other parts that are worth using ?? i already run a spool, fixed centre pulley and white belts.

I just raced at the Masters on the weekend finishing 2nd in the 8.5 brushless class with the 415. Pretty happy with the result but i got beaten by a team aresoshit TC5
The car had no pace down the straight, i think i have cooked the motor. I reckon a 13.5 would of been faster.
I will be posting a set up later today

Tamiya usa has the bulkheads. but it's probably cheaper ordering it from your LHS. Just letting you know they are not hard to find.

Don't retire the car, it is a great car. How fast it is depends on the hands that wheel it!

Thanks for the info. Getting stuff out of Tamiya USA is hopeless without a US address and our LHS here is OZ dont usually do Tamiya TRF stuff. But have found an MSX upgrade kit. JUst need to find the LWT arms for it. 51104 is the part number I believe...is that all you need to change or do I need to start replacing C hubs and steering hubs etc etc.

Downunder... you should be able to order from RCmarket, rcchamp, basically anywhere from hong kong or japan. The shops over there have everything.

Haven't been in here for a while, but updated a useful little document today for the 415 MSX onwards.

It's the roll centre calculator that I created about a year ago, finally got round to gettting it as I completely wanted (slow work day).

Simply put your settings in, and ahve a look at your static roll centre. It's a useful little tool for seeing how the different settings affect the car, you'll be suprised at how much differnce only a small change can make.

Cheers
Ed

Default MSX still dominating

I love this car! Destroyed all the JRXR's, TC5's even the new 416's. The MSX is an awesome racing. I just slapped martin crisps vegas rubber setup and blew everyone out of the water by 2 laps.


MSX rule..

In addition, TRY Hards website rules, thanks for all the new tips and mods for the MSX!

Cheers.

Ed.

Default Lipo Tray

Hy there !

Does anyone tried out the bittydesign Lipo battery tray on the 415 M
SX/XX?

http://www.bittydesign.net

I think i will get one because i wont dremel out my bulkheads or swap over to the stick pack conversion.
With these trays i think there will be no limitation of fitting any lipo in the car.

Does anybody know if there are other manufractors of stuff like that?

Greetings Blueman

I use one and so do a couple of other guys at my track, they fit great, help with a little weight when running lipos and help move the battery away from the rear bulkhead

you can also get them from http://www.feralbatteries.com.au/category.aspx?id=%2053

depends on your location and the exchange rate, Feral batteries are based in Australia

Thx for the info!

I will order mine from bittydesign direct, because they are from Italy, and there the tray costs 35 Euros and additinoal 8 Euros shipping costs (for 4 Trays) to Austria (not Australia).

Cant wait to get one and test my new Trackpower Lipo.

I hate to ask, been reading and can't find this in one place.

Can someone summarize the differences between all the 415 versions please.
