for the front diff you need all the parts from the rear diff beside the plastic halves.
I´m not sure if this is with the final release also but the prototyp diff was using EVO3 diff plates as these are more easy available than the ones from the 415.

Beside this some guys here will know the Jürgen oneway for the EVO3.
Jürgen is making this front diff and a spool as used by Marc Rheinard at the Reedy Race last weekend.
From what I know it was the first time for Marc running a spool.

i would think the 415/414/TA04 diff plates would be easier to come by... plus they have 2 flats, instead of one. stronger maybe? either way, im sure they wont spin on the alum outdrive.

Here it is tamiyadriver. I didn't alter too much from it when the heat came up and the track felt greasy (less rear downtravel and stiffer front stab bar) However, the other guys were making a lot of changes that I couldn't keep track of.

to be honest i dont think that is the main reason or else they may have just used the evo4. i think its the shaft VS belt which makes 1 better for short twisty tracks , no T. steer , and one better for long drifing where better acceleration is important.

i think the suspension was employed like rod said, lighter stiffer but more slop free, more tuning and so on

Im very close to buying me a 415 at the moment ive picked it over the evo4 but now i think i smell a trf415 surikarn edition to celebrate his reedy race winning!

It would be red, Ti. turnbuckles and screws, Ti axles, the Evo4 suspension and A blocks all around, Blue sealed bearings, white belts, finned motor sink bulk head and more better'ness

Talking of white belts i havent seen 1 pic of surikarns car where he has been using the white belts only mazumi, any idea if he used them at reedy or/and why he hasnt been useing them?

thanks
