Hy!

There is a complete front diff set ,with al the needed parts available!
53921 is the part number.
RC mart for example has it in stock.
I think in the set is the 36T pulley included.

I have it in my pitbox, but never tried it yet......

Greetings Blueman

i had one in my 415 but removed it because the blades were worn out and the kit was quite expensave

i now use a spool as we run brushless and the spool is a better option

On a high bite track, the 415msxx needs some pretty hard wearing foams and no front toe.

I am on 40shore F+R, with CS additive on F+R, for the first round of qualifying only...

And even then, I am occasionally grip rolling with a 13.5!!! Sick.

The only other chassis plates to fit the MSX MRE is the MSXX and MSXX stick-pack lower decks. The original MSX & MSX stick-pack lower decks do not fit cause the steering posts are too far forward.

To switch to the MSXX lower decks, you will need the new bumper parts, including foam and plastic parts. I'm not sure if the newer carbon upper brace is required, but it certainly is nicer than the MRE one...

The 415 front diff set does include everything needed except for the diff pulley. I have one on order, but Dinball/RCmart is slowest shipping ever. It's been over two weeks now.

I wish rdvtg-hobbies on ebay would respond to parts requests, cause his diff pulley arrived here in the US in 4-5 days...

Thank you for the part number.

The set up I'm running feels great and I'll hopefully have it posted on www.gearchart.com shortly.
Your car sure did look good! Don't you love how you can feel small changes on the track with this car ?
My car was good for a bit in the main, got a 15.9, then I tweaked it in the wall.


are you sure about the short arms? I have been doing nothing but tuning OUT traction for the last 3 races, and have gotten faster

I heard that, rdvtg is the greatest foreign ebay seller ever. Super fast shipping, great prices. I am tired of Dinball, expensive shipping and very slow.

As far as the short arms go...I'm just going off of what everyone else out our way has said. Now that I have gotten rid of that huge rear aluminum plate I feel the car has a ton of rear traction and I also spent the entire day trying to get rid of the rear bite and increasing steering slightly. Thanks for the use of your roll center plates. I'll have to get some of those later. The arms are the way everyone sems to be going but now that I'm not speedo or motor testing I can concentrate on the set up more and I may just stay with the long arms.
