THE END!!!!!

Oh! one more thing, why is it becoming a big concern anyway? Regardless what body you use in a race, if you don't have the car set-up properly (w/c is what we need to get posted on this thread --- RROC'04 setup), what we're trying to confirm here (what body is it???) is pointless & senseless.
Why are you so worked up about this? No, I do not own or have ever owned a Tamiya 415, yet alone any Tamiya, so maybe I shouldn't be posting in this thread, OK. Although, I am asking about a part of a car run by a Tamiya driver, and figured that you all (guys who run the same car) would be able to answer my question, what body is Surikarn running? It has been answered and I thank those who answered me correctly, you know who you are. But, I am really wondering why it seems that you are making this into some big deal, even though it was a simple question, and all these guys are doing is helping a fellow "R/C-er". Also, no it is not senseless and pointless to be asking what body he was running, because if you knew anything about aerodynamics, you would know that the body is the only thing (along with the underside of the chassis) that affects the aerodynamics, and that the body is one of the most effective tuning features in sedan racing, being that there are so many to choose from. Try to make a Mini-cooper handle right and be able to keep up with a regular sedan, it is quite hard.

protofrom site also has ryan cavalieri as using a mazda six.. photos on the losi site seem to beg to differ (photos show losi alfa).

but back to the 415- how tight are people running the belts in mod?... feeling wise as the number of clicks will differ between belts as they stretch etc.

As loose as possible without slipping.. If brand new there would be in neutral or 1 click maximum.

Exclamation Misunderstood

Hello Mike. My apologies if my last posting was misunderstood. It was really in response to KiwiKid's inq. as to why I'm so certain that it was a RIDE Stratus body that Surikarn used. I'm totally w/you that the body does play an important role in the aerodynamics of the car, and I didn't mean for it to sound like it was less important. My point however in the thread of conversation is that, it just doesn't seem important to me as to who made the Dodge Stratus body ... but that the body you are using, no matter what is, meets regulations.

I was simply hoping that by finally clarifying what Surikarn was using, we could all proceed to another topic. Again, my apologies as it was not my intention to offend.

damn!!! I drilled the holes out for the downstops on my arms and accidently drilled all the way through one side

Do I need to by new arms or can I get away with something different? Maybe a imperial screw size or something?

You probably could get away with a bigger screw. But the arms are not expensive (perhaps $10) you might as well get new ones.

Sorry if this has been asked already, but....

the double 1-way (layshaft and diff) on the 415, what does this do, i would of thought the 1way layshaft wouldnot be needed when running a 1way diff, the only tiny advantage i can think of is theres a tiny bit less friction/drag on the belts???

im kinda confused about the whole thing

Hi guys! While the 415 is a great car, my main problem with it is the the rear ball diff is not very well protected from dirt and dust thus it feels rough after just a few runs. Anyone agree with me? And anyone have a solution for this? Would the X-ray sealed diffs fit the 415?

i disagree that the diffs are rough after a couple of runs.
my 414 diffs can run up to 5-6 race meetings.
i should imagine it would be the sameas the 415 as i havent hit the track with the 415 yet!
i dont know weather the x-race diffs will fit,but was are there advantage over the original 415's?you may be able to put the labrynth [sp] covers on the original diff.i dont know.
i would just use the standard diff as norm.
also anyone seen surikarns car with the white outdrives?there the same as the evo3!
why is he using them over the black ones?lighter?
