The best way to remove play from ball cups is to insert part of the palstic bags parts come in between the ball end and ball cup. Find a plastic parts bag of suitable thickness and cut out squares bigger than the ball cup and slip it over the ball end and clamp down the ball cup.

Thank you kilruf. Are the springs sold seperately or do I have to buy red, yellow, Blue and white together?

Hey V12, interesting to note what you said about the tam drivers at the german mod nat using the alloy rear hubs+old wheel axles.

I guess by using them, and the Pro4 knuckles on the front, you could eliminate the need for the 950 sized bearings with the lwt suspension....

Now your thinking.... not a bad idea to try... but the rear hub on the 415 clears the 30mm foams just finor you could just use the pro4 hub on the rear to.. because it works also

so I guess what ben cosgrove said to me is true then, that HPI pretty much copied the suspension off of the evo4....

Still I won't be trying it any time soon, got enough 950's to get through first...

I have uploaded some pictures from Marc Rheinards and Marc Fischers cars from the German Nationals at this thread.
http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...threadid=49028
Also there is one picture from the new prototyp aluminium rear diff made by Jrgen Horn for the 415. One special thing is he now makes the diffs and spool for the Corally blades. This just works on the original Tamiya driveshafts and lowers the friction and wear a lot.

What do you have to do to use the aluminum uprights other than drill out the hinge pin hole. I checked last night and it seemed the aluminum upright was wider than the new plastic one. I see the spacer on the hinge pin but it seems as if the arm would need to be fitted.

Looks like a hack and slash to make it fit... but it looks like the rear arm would be a bit weaker at the point where the material was used ...Just my 2 Yen...
