no sorry for ANY confusion this is the car Charlie raced - NOT Surikarn's

His car was looking great--in fact, all the 415s looks great out there today. Atushi Hara drove brilliantly all day and for a moment I though he's going to win but I guess that Surikarn came through again (I did not stay for the final). There was a particluar interesting battle between the 415 and an Evo3 in one of the 19T final. It was fun to see how the shaft car comes out of the corner stronger but the belt car holds an overall faster cornering speed.
Hey, was he only using the front arms, or all the Evo4 suspension package (ie : wishbones, C-Hubs and hubs front and rear) ?

Hi -

This is perhaps a strange request but does anyone have a digital picture file of the 'new' Tamiya logo - the one in words like the decal sheet?

I am getting a custom pitboard done and would like to fly the Tamiya colours. If you have one, or can direct me to one, that would be great...

Thanks

Dave

A question for those who are made a front Diff using Yokomo diff parts for the 415: What screw did you use to go through the centre of the diff? The Yokomo one is too short and I dont have a spare available

Cheers

hmmm.. i used the Yoke. if you look down inside one of the outdrives, there is a hex made into it. that way you dont have to use the reg t-nut deal, just put the nut down in the recess.

i guess they used those arms cause of the nice and smooth layout of the tamiya track .steve from speedtech said that the evo4 would be for those kind of situations i guess it worked well for them .

They also mentioned that the new arms are lighter and stiffer.

Does anybody have a good setup for using the oneway? I've seen lots of post using a spool, but I don't see much use for the spool except at Reedy and maybe a couple tight tracks.

no problem lycan! the only thing i dont like about that is if the nut spins inside it, you have to replace the diff halves.

not a bad idea to keep an extra set...

The fitment of the new Evo4 suspension components are tight and slop free but were silky smooth (no binding). Also of note is that they are very light and include sway bar mounting balls molded into the arms (more weight savings). Another thing, and I don't know if this is gonna make it to production, is that the hinge pins on the ones I played with in DJ's and JJ's pit were made of steel but hollow, super dialed

Thanks for the picture Gary: 415 in the sweeper, yay!

As I had some PMs regarding the aluminium front diff for the 415 here is the picture from the diff halves again.
