havingb a c block at the front and an a block at back meansthat the wheelbase of the front end are put slightly back meaning it gives you more front end steering.
this is a mod we did on the evo3 a while back.

evotech;yes you were the one i was refering to.
although i know another person who has one now as well in the south east.

It give the car a 1 degree onboard toe-out. I think Losi does the same but not sure. If you do a search there has been a discussion on this a while ago in this thread as well as another thread here:

What do you need for the lightweight diff from the EVOIII to make it work in the 415. I want to bulid one and use the stock one as a spare.

The EVO3 lightweight diff will NOT work for the 415.

just in the rear... works ok, just have to shim a little, aas the total width of the evo outdrives is a little smaller. i have that in the rear of mine right now, cause when i was in Memphis, burned up the stocker.... all i could find were some Evos, and didnt shim them. walks back and forth a little, but allowed me to finish the day! with the shimming, should be perfect.

no i havent unfortunaty.
why dont you pm me your fone number and il give you a call.
especially since the ko is in a couple of weeks.[cant wait]

fatboy joe;thats ok.
on the 415 this mod isnt really needed as we can just put trhe front wheelbase back,but if you need it to go back even more just buy the a block bridge and put that on to push the wheels back more.

You can also use the 6mm silver wheel hexes. And if you need to narrow the width of the car, just use different blocks like C blocks instead of D blocks to move the arms in closer to center.

What size of the spur gear are you guys using with stock motors?
Iīm using a Xenon 88 or 90 teeth with my EVO III but this maybe is a little small for the 415.
