Oddly I think the tracks must be of similar size as I lap ours in just over 8 seconds too - it looks about the same judging by the videos on YouTube. I much prefer smaller tracks personally, tend to find that lower than the A Final everyone is more inconsistent the faster the track is and it makes for poor racing.

your track looked bigger than ours, but maybe it isnt

yeah, I like that smaller tracks usually see more frequent lead changes which makes it pretty cool to watch

It is a dated car now, what with the trf417 and 416 being the most common, but I still use the trf415msxx

Interestingly, I've been going through my website to bring all the 415 stuff to the main forum... Kinda nice to be reminded of the old girl, it's where my Tamiya love affair started,

I still reckon the original 415 (with the old suspension) was still one of the best cars ever on carpet... it flat out just worked

Default 16 Ball diff

Hy there!

Is anybody run the 16 ball diff mod in yout 415´s? How do you glue the diff plates? wich grease do you use?

I tried it with AW grease, and after i tightned it a bit, the diff plates slipped on the outdrives , so i rebuild it with and glued the plates with "ca" on. Now it works.
I only attached it in the car, but not tried it on the track. SO far it felt very good. Hope it also works on track.
I used the standard TA05 36T pulley, and put only 8 balls in the "original" inner ring, and 8 in the outer ring.

I am currently using the 416 O-shape diff plates, but i have seen that the diff plates of the sakura zero are in D-shape, and they should also fit.

With those, the glueing issues should be solved!

Anybody tried it out?

Greetings Blueman!

Here is a actual pic of the car, with the 16 ball diff installed. The only thing wich will changed next, is the speedo.

The SP cirtix club stock. will be Installed, to make the car ready for the ETS Race here in Austria, wich takes place in St. Pölten in Febuary.

With the 416 plates, the main thing I would do is use some Tamiya Hard Damper greese (that they use for the friction damper plates). Otherwise, standard ball diff greese seemed to work well.

THX! for the info THard!

Today i have built in the Sp cirtix speedo, and switched the internal ratio from 2,25 to 2,0 by using the 18T 416 pulleys with the cyclone front and the xray rear belt.

The rear belt fits good, but the front i turned the diff holders to the maximum tesion wich is possibe, and now the belt runs "acceptable lose". Hope it stays in this condition, and it will not get looser.......

Has anyone experience with this mod,or tried the 19T 3racing pulleys instead of the 18T?

Greetings Blueman
