I've noticed that mine have been binding slightly on both front and rear driveshafts.

thanks
front and rear are 15.5 but mine are longer to give maximum movement on the other arm

Hi all

Just picked up a used MSXX and I'm looking for a base setup for carpet with rubber tyres and one for smooth medium grip tarmac. I have had a look on Eds site and not sure which ones I should pick.

Thanks

Hi Phil

I said it was a good setup our home tracks are similar , if you do the mods we spoke about you can take out 0.5 deg from your rear toe and no-one will catch ya down the straight HAVE IT

Hi
Looking to get back into tc racing, I picked a used 415msx of rctech. Where is the best place to go that summarize all that I need to know about this car. I'll be racing carpet foam w/ 13.5 brushless. And possilbly parking lot too. I use to race with a tc3 and I see that this is a different animal. All help will be appreciated.
Thanks

get the small Universal kimborough one and be done with it, (got mine from demon) i've had mine on my ta05, then the 415 for about 2 or 3 seasons and had no issues with it at all, fit and forget

The tamiya ones are renowned for slop and poor fitting.

Sidecar phil, thanks, i'll see what I can do with mine

Hi mate , I ran a 415 on foams at an indoor venue and ran 37s on the front and 40's rear schumacher 32lb front springs and 28lb rears 50wt f and 40wt rear 3 hole pistons short camber links and middle hole on the bottom of the arms front and rear 1.5 deg camber f&r 1.5 deg toe out front and 2.5 rear toe in 4mm ride height 3mm droop

I ended up running 2 top decks to stiffen it all up ,
Ps all depends on the type of carpet ur running on

Cheers Mark M
