Hello Tryhard,

Are the e-clip slots on the hinge pins in the same place for the Evo III hinge pins as the 415 hinge pins. I will not be able to check them until friday.

I just bought 2 sets of evoIII hinge pins form speedtechrc.com because steve said they were a direct replacement.....interesting....

not sure exactly, I'll have a quick look.
The pins I replaced are the inboard ones, so didn't actually need e-clips, but hence why they need to be cut down.

Ed

EDIT - Right, had a look, I think I know where the confusion has come in, the outer pins ARE a direct replacement, however the inner ones aren't.

What Class are you running in?

Glad you like 'em.
Hopefully the set-up crib sheet aint too confusing, I find it quite useful to have a look at if I'm stuck tweaking a set-up, and it means that a) I don't have to flick through the guide to find the right section, or b) remember what change does what. Also can remind me if I've forgotton to look at something.

Regards
Ed

Could you make a comparison? I have hopped up my 04 to kingdom come and would love another belt car and 415 is my first choice!!!

QUestion is.......Is it worth it?

Any tweak issues? since I prefer a tub chassis (less tweak?)

Thanks!!!!
hey lem!!!

how are you?

i own both but i haven't used my 415. i bought my 415 also asking first if it has any tweak issues. apparently, it has none. sonny had a super crash in captiloyo but he was still continue no problem you can ask him. i think tweak problems are pretty much confined nowadays to shaft driven double deck cars. i actually almost bought an evo4 the other day but when i checked the forums, the tweak problems were present. that's why i bought a cgm instead yesterday be careful cos there are no parts for sale, you have to order at pitshop. i'd suggest if you can wait for the myo2-m, it might be worth considering. or you can offer to buy mine hehehehe. but in all honesty, even with the lack of parts availability here, based on inputs from a lot of people, i think the 415 is worth it

you can use the Tamiya #53681 for a titanium wheel axle, and the aluminum driveshaft bones are 53502...

The Evo3/414/415 aluminum universal shafts are 42mm in length, the TA04 shafts are 39mm. The Evo4 are 46mm. Save yourself the money and DON'T get the TA04, they're not long enough...

Also, the aluminum bones up front is pretty risky, if you don't plan on hitting anything and it's a pretty big race, by all means, go for it...

aluminiums up front sounds quite dangerous!

Remember there is the lightweight front joint cups and the mentioned titanium ends.
