Good decision!

Think this should be the right choice. with this layout the balance should be already equal.
Please keep us updated when the parts arrive how they fit, and how it looks like!

Default Hey 415ers.

Recently got a second hand trf415 MS.

Brand new to the racing scene. Was wondering if you guys can give me the lay down on what I can do to make this a racing machine! Too lazy to read 1000+ pages. If you're feelin lazy too, just post what pages I should read.

I'll be running a Duo 3 21.5 and a Tekin RS with no timing on ESC.

Thanks for helping me out!

I think what you need to have for a good lipo battery fittement is the stick pack conversion. Better yet only the upperdeck but you must buy the whole set.

Tamiya #54083 is the short arm conversion kit, which gives you all the parts required to upgrade to the short arms and 1050 bearings.

get this and its all you need

I will be trying out the sakura zero 42mm titanium turnbuckles to replace the stock trf steering turnbuckles which I have now bent two of

Hopefully they will be more reliable on the small tight carpet track I race at...

Hy there!

Yesterday i installed the Spec R Gear diff in my 415.

I changed the center and diff pulleys to 18/37 by using in front the cyclone 169T belt, and in the rear i used the 61T Xray T2 009 belt. (3X183mm).

I am using the short rev. suspension with the old 950 uprights. So actualy the 46mm swing shafts are to long. Temporaly i installed 42mm wich i had in my pitbox. They should work but i think 44mm are the better choice. They are on the way.

Because the rear bulkheads of the 415 are wider than the 416 i also have to shimm the diff with 5 pices 0,3mm shimms on each side.

Look at the pics.

The short rev suspension arms (53928) are now the standart arms since the 416we, and the Evo5 also come already equiped with this arms.

For the uproghts ypu can use the 950 style, wich where the "original" old ones, and the newer 416 style 1050 ones.

Wich version of the 415 did you own?
