Raising the roll centres does work... but I personally never went above 1.5mm (and that was on a very quick track, with a 27t), but that did carry awesome corner speed.
Something else that was done as a general rule of thumb was white/blue springs, and no roll bars. Have a look here, if you haven't already for a number of setups that work well THard 415 pages.

Do you use a oneway (front or center) front diff or spool?

When running the 27t, I always preferd the one-way, as it carried the corner speed much better, and suited my style.

With faster motors, I prefered the spool... especially now with brushless, as you can loose the drag brake to help keep the speed up.

TryHard do you know if it's possible to run the 37tooth diff pulleys and 18tooth centre pulleys on the 415, if it is indeed possible what belts would you need to make it work?

+1, i've always prefered a centre one way over a fixed centre with 27t, especially at bigger tracks. I've never experimented with the front one way as i've found the centre one way is a little more neutral and you can keep a little more brakes with it, probably not much more, but a little should you need them.

On very small tracks, where corner speed isn't so important, i'd be going with a fixed centre layshaft. I've found that you can scrub off a little bit of speed on turn in if need be.

Does anyone know a good online hobby store that stocks 415MRE parts? What I'm looking for is a rear or front differential pulley, center one way pulley, and a rear aluminum diff joints. Hit me back, anybody!

Not sure if they're in stock and may be too far away for you, but you could always try shooting an email to Fusion Hobbies to see if they have any of them?

Thanks guys, I found a couple of other websites but I wanted to order straight from one site. I'll check out Fusion and Ampdraw and see what I can find.

UPS should be here this afternoon so I can put my car back together and be ready for racing next Saturday. I can't wait to run the car again. TRYHARD has some very great info on his website. If you haven't checked it out yet I suggest you do so.

What is the difference between the front upright that is used in the MSX, and the new one that comes with the 416? Can the new one be used with the LW suspension on a 415? I've been having trouble finding the LW front upright, so I was wondering if the new version can be used in it's place.

Everything showed up today. Looks like all I have to do is put things together. Next weekend looks like it's going to be fun.

416's front upright uses 1050 bearing, MSX's uses 950.

if you want to use 416's front upright, u must also change the bearings and C-Hub to 416 version. CMIIW.

but i don't know the swing shaft, whether it still can use the 46mm swing shaft or must change to 44mm (416 version).

i'm new to touring car racing (come from M-03 racing)

and i'm trying to learn to drive a TRF415MSXX MRE indoor but as soon as i make a small mistake i break the front suspension arm on the barrier !!

getting a little disgruntled with it !!!
