Your car looked real good out there! To bad about the bad luck! Went from crappy tools, frequency mess up, broken arm, almost together and then a broken ball stud. That really sucked!

Cant wait to run with you, hahahahaha should be fun

My car is in surgery right now after a hard weekend Had the tip of my AE wrench snap off in one of my droop screws Then had a tie rod issue (all my own fault) Then the frequency conflict before the main that cause all the major damage. This surgery should only take a hour or two tops but with kids and basketball practice and homework we will stretch this into a few day process. It will be all ready for some more fun at the Reedy points race in two weeks after I purchase a couple of items. Gotta find some droop screws and the bushings that go into the C hubs.

Default Rear Diff

I love my 415, but I hate my rear diff... I've got more rear tamiya diffs to put in but I was wondering if there's another brand diff that would fit in my 415?I'm a machinist so some modifying is no problem. Thanks in advance!

What kind of problems are you having with the diff?

I had that happen a couple of times racing on carpet myself. I thought it was because I got the car used. I plan on rebuilding the diff with new parts very soon. I plan on trying out the 16 ball diff tryhard mentions on his page.

You have to stop using tinker toys as tools You should know by now you can not use wood on plastic parts
I know, you were just testing the tools out

It was an Associated tool that broke So your car may be next to just fall apart. My cheaper Integy tools held up longer

I'll sell ya my MRE hehe. But, you will have issues with lipo packs. You might can get away with an SMC 4000 pack if you grind down the bulkheads. Or if you use Orion packs with the "pocket" in the center of the pack. Or you would have to let the battery hang way over the edge of the chassis. The main issue with this car is the rear bulkhead clearance. Not a good car to choose for most lipo packs. Especially if you do not want to grind down the bulkheads. The other option would be to buy the Stickpack conversion kit with different rear bulkheads. Changing to the 416 front hubs requires new hubs, new caster blocks (but old ones do work with altered geometry), new axles, new bearings, maybe new bearing spacers?, not sure about the bushings.

Huck i have an S400 gear diff in my 415msx and it is great. just have to find the right oil be 4000 weight or higher, the denser the oil the less it slips( does that make any sense)or both sides are driving.
