Hello guys,

I have been away from racing for the last 3 seasons and thinking of running again after the new year. I seen a lot of changes happened to carpet in brushless and Lipos for batteries.

I have a TRF415 original with MSX upgrades and a TRF415 MSX WRE.

Are you guys able to run a hard case Lipo pack in these at all? I am thinking of going with the Reedy #709 35C 5000mAh 7.4 pack.

I would appreciate any responses on this or anything on the brushless to look out for for fitment on these cars. Thanks,

John

I don't believe that pack will fit.I have a 415msx and I had to dremel the bulkhead to accomadate the smaller 3800 30c Orion's.Otherwise you could run the Reedy but you would have to hang the pack over the side of the
chassis with a lipo-tray.The Orion pack works great for me and I can just tape it in just like a nihm pack.

The biggest I could get was an IP 3800mah 35C pack w/ bullet connectors. I had to remove all the decals from the lipo and file the cell slots a little extra to make sure it sat pefectly flat on the chassis. Then I had to file the hell out of the right bulkhead in 3 spots and underside of the center post. You will need a little room between the pack and the bulkheads cause of chassis flex. I also had to shave the bottom side of the upper deck at an angle to allow the ESC/battery wires to come through below the top deck. I didn't want them above.

This pic shows where to file:

can anyone tell me what size the diff balls are in the msxx please? (probably the same as the MRE) as i might try to source some non tamiya ones locally.

also, how often do you guys change the thrust races? I know that greasing them is critical for their lifespan.

ty!

You have them in order of narrowest to widest.
For each step they are spread apart, there is a ~.5* change in toe.

Examples:
1A & 1B = .5*
1A & 1C = 1*
1XA & 1F = 3.5*
1C & 1C = 0*
etc...

Thanks haywood and 94eg! for the info on Lipo fitment. I will order the BittyDesign lipo tray and I actually pre-ordered a 416X from Speedtech RC.

But I will run the 415 with 4mm chassis for foam and the 416X for rubber.

I wonder how much a mint never run TRF415 MSX MRE would be going for? Maybe I will sell that to reduce the cost of the 416X upgrade.

2qty Tamiya 53126 Ball Bearings ( 1510 )

I'll have the actual website up and running again soon. Some people on this thread might remember I had parts and pics of everything needed and almost step by step on how to put the diff together.

Thanks Nexus .... I did it .... my MSX finally got front ball diffs she deserved.

I use white TA05 ball diff pulley ( 36T ) instead of black 415 MSX ball diff pulley ( 35T ). I have to replaced rear diff pulley as well to make it even with front, 36T.

Cheers ....
