oh yeah, that's right. that explains it.

Thanks!

ok guys, will have my 415 soon got a few questions

1) Can you buy a rubber sealed bearing kit or have you got to buy each one seperate...

2) Has anyone tried out the white belts yet and also do you think its worth waiting for the tamiya ones or will all the differnt makes and version be more or less the same

3) which spool is better.. Jurgen or speedtech?

4) the jurgen diff halves, do they wear? as its an expensive purchase i wouldnt want to have to replace them all the time!

cheers

Use the Evo3 bearing kit. It'll give you all the bearings minus the 8x4mm layshaft bearings. I used ceramic bearings for those.

2) Has anyone tried out the white belts yet and also do you think its worth waiting for the tamiya ones or will all the differnt makes and version be more or less the same

Yes, it will be worth the wait. I've noticed that with running a hot modified, the standard belts wear a lot quicker and the throttle response isn't as quick as it should be. The white belts improve on that. btw, when I say hot mod, I mean like a 7x1 V2.

3) which spool is better.. Jurgen or speedtech?

I haven't seen or used Jurgen's hardware but from the pictures, they look well engineered. I have used the speedtech ones for the longest time and I HIGHLY recommend them. They have an excellent price point.

4) the jurgen diff halves, do they wear? as its an expensive purchase i wouldnt want to have to replace them all the time!

If you need a front diff, I guess the Jurgen front diff would be the way to go. I agree that it is kinda of spendy...but what else can you do besides piece-meal one together.

I do have a couple of pictures and a close-up of Surikarn's car but the pictures don't belong to me, so I won't post them. Sorry

They're 8x4mm or 4x8mm however you read it hehe. As for their depth, it doesn't really matter because the layshaft is held in place by a clip on one side and a setscrewed cap on the other. My layshaft bearings were from accer racing.

3) I think you can´t go wrong with both of them. The one from Speedtech is some time out now and seems working very good. Also it´s very cheap.
The one from Jürgen is very new. It was finished right before the Reedy race and at least Marc Rheinard and Marc Fisher used this one. Don´t know which one Surikarn used.

Regarding price I don´t know which one will be cheaper in the end. The Speedtech spool is very cheap but shipping costs from USA to UK may be high. The Jürgen spool is more expensive but shipping costs will be cheaper for sure.

What you have to consider is the design of both spools is different. As I know the Speedtech spool is completely steel and the Jürgen spool is made from aluminium with steel outdrives.

4) I think nobody can´t tell you yet how much is the wear on the Jürgen frontdiff halves. The diff just was released last week and I think nobody outside of Germany does have one currently.
Alan from the UK have one on order and he could tell you what he thinks of then. But I know Alan had some other stuff from Jürgen for his EVO3 and 415 already and he always was very pleased.
Jürgen is using a very highquality aluminium for the diff and it´s anodizid. Something similar like Square not the soft aluminium like Tobee. Beside this aluminium will wear more than a hardened steel and it also depends if you´re running on a dusty track or not.

Default Rubber sealed bearings

Was wondering planning to put some of my TA04 TRF rubber sealed bearing on my 415. One questions about rubber sealed bearings;

Do they have more friction than the metal sealed bearings or are they the same?

Well, I took lots. And this year even lots of cars and people!!! 500 or so. Here goes.

Notice the concentration, just to put on the compound!

Damn, I also realized while looking through these that most of the japan drivers were not running the four stantions on the middle wing plates.. I guess for more chassis flex...
