Quick question, may be getting a use 415 MSX and I current;y have TA05R

I know the LWR suspension is the same, but what about the stuff like Front one way and spool, will my TA05R ones fit the 415 MSX?

Unfortunately not, the TA-05 one-way and spool is offset to the side in the bulkheads while the TRF415 one-way and spool runs just about in the middle of the bulkheads.

I have the 415msx - I'm looking for a good starting set for rubber tire racing on asphalt. I have seen all the setup on Tryhard website but I'm looking for one where I only have to change springs, shock oil or camber links if I go to a different track. I don't want to have to stock all the different suspension mounts.They confuse me.

Hey.

Try my setup http://www.ttrc.com.au/index.php?opt...id=5&Itemid=28

with this setup all i needed to do is change shock position and different springs depending on track conditions.

Thanks, I will check out your set up. I know I will be running different springs and oil because I run on a medium traction track. I'm mainly concerned with what supension mounts that will work.

Ran the car for the first time this weekend and it feels just like my cyclone. There are a couple of issue's I found but nothing to get all upset about just yet My car came with black belts but some of the guys running 415's have white belts. What's the difference between the two?

The white belts was an attempt at lower drivetrain losses by using a softer belt. Personally, I hated the white belts. They were prone to flipping over and loosing teeth - especially in mod. It might be good for the slower motor classes.

The white belts are low friction belts, which one you should run depends on the class you're gonna run the car in. The low friction belts would work fine and give you good life from 8.5 to 21.5, I've run the low friction belts in 6 cell mod(4.5) foam/asphalt and they just about make a race day (4 runs). Since going to the standard black belt I'm getting much better reliability from the belts.

Pedro had them on his car so that's why I was asking. I'll probably stick with the black belts for now but may try out the white one since all I run is 13.5 now. What's the difference between the milky white springs and regualr Tamiya springs? I have all the milky white one's if they are better.

No difference in the spring rates, I like to call them KGB springs since nobody knows your SECRET spring setup

I'll just tell everyone that I'm running white springs all the time. On foam and rubber What's the deal with the bearing size? I've heard that the 415 goes through bearings like crazy. Why is that if it's true?
