Measured distance of hingepin centerline above chassis:

414 = 4 mm
415 = 5 mm
Evo3/4 = 6 mm

All the screw holes match up.

The 415 A block, the Evo3/4 A block and the "no dot" 414 block are exactly the same width.
Thanks Linger for your help.

Anyone know where I can get these arms from??? (on-line)
We should be getting them in either end of this week or next week. We just put in a huge order with Tamiya USA Also, we have a good shipment of Square hop-up parts coming in for the TRF415 as well. That should be arriving next week too.

If this is the case, why didn't Tamiya just include the Evo3 blocks (since it is 1mm higher) instead of the 1mm spacer that is needed underneath the 415 blocks?

The spacers are only used for the rear, not front. Plus the spacers are 0.7mm, not 1mm.

guys had something happen to me tonight that has happened a number of time recently, and I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if so how they've cured it.
Basically the grub screw holding my spur gear mount in place keeps coming undone, even with threadlock (although i think this is part due to how difficult it is to get a good amount of threadlock on the screw). With a stock, it takes about 3 rounds, however with a mod (as I experienced last weekend) it can almost take 5mins, I just have to make sure it's real tight before I put the car on the track.

Now I know a simple solution would be to check it before every run, but surely there has to be a better and more reliable way to solve this.

If it's of any use, I'm using a gold colour grub screw, as per the kit instructions.

Regards
Ed

I use a longer black grub screw.. and thread lock of course. Just make sure you are tightening down on the flat spot.

Never had that happen to me eversince I had the car. I run Mod and 19 all the time and constantly do maintenance by dismantling the car and putting it back.. The only thing to watch out for is not to overtighten this. You may want to check wether the spur gear holders' thread is still good as well as the grub screw.

Hope this helps.
