Default Short Reversible Sus Arm on MSXX MRE 2007?

Hello,
New to Tamiya and reading through some pages on RCTECH's TRF415 had me go out and find a MSXX MRE07 to go asphalt racing. I cant afford a 416WE right now so the MSXX MRE07 will be way more capable than my skill level.

Anyway, just looking into getting some spare arms for my MSXX MRE07 and found this on TamiyaUSA site. 53928 Short Reversible Sus Arm.

Will this be a better setup for my MSXX MRE07? Should I build my car with this optional 53928 short arms?

Currently my kit came with 51104 TB Evolution IV D parts.

The car will run a 27turn brushed motor with NiMH 6 cell w/ X-pattern tires on low grip asphalt.
We have our own group rules here.

Thanks for your info and help and I promise to try to read as much on this thread as I can about the car before asking.
(lots of pages!!!)

Dan

Dan,

Sounds like you are running RCGT? If so welcome to a great class for touring cars.

In the case of low traction, both with the tires and asphalt surface I would stay wide. Although tuning the chassis with width works really well, I would say to purchase one up and one down of suspension blocks for you to tune with. You can make the car narrower that way, depending on which ones you are running now and also be able to change geometry with a simple change of a block. (toe in)

Also keep in mind if you start to go too narrow you will have to shorten up the drive shafts. Tamiya however makes 42, 44, 46 & 48mm lengths.

Hope that helps somewhat.

You will need totaly different suspension blocks to make use of the short arms. You can get the box stock 416-Worlds blocks (C/C & 1XA/1F or 1E) or look at Jilles Groskamp's thread for the TRF team base setup. Etiher way, the MRE blocks will make the car narrow and the roll center will off...

I will try out the standard arms to start since our track is a low traction surface and very dusty. Thanks!
Since I have a baseline for suspension setup, how about a baseline gear ratio.

The track is super tight with hairpin after hairpin and has a short to medium straight.
My question is, what gear ratio should I start with?

Motor is a Trinity CO27 PRO brushed stock motor.
Battery: 4200 NiMh 6 cell.

My local hobby store has recommended this combination.
Trans Ratio: 2.25:1 on the MSXX MRE 2007.
64 pitch spur: 88T
64 pitch pinion: 43T / 46T
Gear Ratio: 4.60 / 4.30 - Is this a good starting point? Seems tall, should it be around 6.9???

Thanks,
Rookie - Dan

I run the same car w/ same motor on a similar tight parking lot track. I use a final drive ranging from the low 7's to the high 8's (depending on track setup). To figure Final drive, take you spur & divide by your pinion, and multiply by the internal ratio (2.25). Using final drive is nice cause you are then able to compare with others people that don't have the same internal ratio as you...

I use the TA05 0.4module 105T spur. I have a range of pinions from 26T up to 34T (high 6's to low 9's in final drive). These same numbers of teeth easily compare to 64pitch cause 0.4mod is pretty similar in size (just not compatible). I haven't had to go outside this window yet with these motors. I'm no pro, but I do pretty well.

Hello,
I am going to be an owner of a very clean TRF415ms. I was wondering if anyone has played around with different pulleys for this chassis? I would like to keep it TCS legal if I can??? Part #'s would be great! Also can I put a Spool in the front? Plan to run 17.5 or 13.5 sedan rubber tires on carpet.
Thank you
Dave

Default Can LI-Po be used on 415?

I want to use LiPo battery, but I find that it's difficult for 415msxx to hold the battery.
Who knows how to solve it??
Thanks a lot.

I've decided I'll use NIMH.
So I bought two new groups.

Check this out !

http://www.bittydesign.net/homeINGLESE.htm

Click "Products&prices", and then the Lipo Tray section.

I also own one of these, and i can say it works perfect.

This is the best idea. Especially if you need to run high mah lipos.

I was able to fit a Intellect 3800 35C w/ Orion style plugs by filing the heck out of the right side bulk-head and center post. It's not hard w/ a dremel and a hand file, but it does take a bit of time & skill to make it look nice. I also removed the top & bottom labels from the battery pack to gain a little more clearance. Make sure to file your battery slots so the pack sits all the way down in the chassis too.

Here is a picture from earlier in this thread to show where you need to file to fit these larger flat-top packs. The section circled to the right needs to be filed all the way back to the center post to keep it from digging into the hard case. You will also need to trim or space out the screw in the top deck to keep it from sticking out the bottom of the center brace.

No m8 that's the spool in the pic. You only ever run a diff in the rear and a spool, diff or one way in the front.
