Depending on how hard you are on the car those 950 bearings can be sensitive, hitting boards, pipes and launching over kerbs they can fail on a regular basis. That said I'be been running mine in Stock(27t), 19Turn and most recently mod for over 2 years and I've only replaced 2 front bearings. Tamiya make a 3mm shim/spacer which fits between the bearings on the axle, guys who were having a hard time with the bearings failing had much better reliability after installing that.

Default Bittydesign Lipo Tray

Hy there!

For those who are interested, to have no issues with fitting a lipo in the 415/416 cars, have a look at these.

With this lipotrays wich are made of "ergal" (is a kind of aluminium) the battery moves aprox. 12mm out of the centerline, and then you can attach any lipo in the car easyly without dremeling the bulkheads.

For further information visit bittydesign.net

Would this throw off the natural balance and handling of the car?

I keep hearing about the bearings so I guess I'll get the one's from avid. I had them on my cyclone so now I'll have them on the Tamiya.

Maybe thats why you were so slow last weekend, you killed all your bearings on your first day with it!!!!


Good choice in cars!!!!

No it wouldnt !

When you attach the lipo normaly (without the offset tray), you have a much hevier "motor side".

The moving outwards of the lipo (with the offset tray) and the little extra weight of it, cases that the balance of the car will be nearly optimal, without attach any extra wheight.

The second plus is that you now can install extra weight easyly under the belt (centerline) of the car to get it legal for races.

I have not tested it yet on the track, but i think it is the best way to attach lipos in a TRF415.
