It didn't happen. I played with the Evo4 and tried to work on a setup with CS27's. Still working on it

Hi,
I assume your using the LWT arm set, if so, try this, it's what I've been using recently indoors, and it's a deffinate improvement over my last base setup (Lap times don't lie ). Admitadly its for 27t stock, I reckon it would be just as good with a 19t.

Indoor Carpet Base

Couple of things to note.
1) Gearing is super low, but thats because of the track I was last running on (suppose I don't really need it on a Base setup)

2) there are some extra 0.5mm shims under the camber link studs on the rear, this is mainly because i'm using a slightly longer fastrax ball stud on the outer ball stud, and it has a slightly longer thread than the Tamiya ones. So to stop it deforming the plastic, and rubbing/binding hte CVD, I've had to place a 0.5mm washer under it, and did the same on the inner stud to compensate.

3) I have 6mm hexes on the front, with 4mm+spacers on the rear, as this is to make sure the car is legal width. I'm not sure the front width on the sheet is entirely accurate, but I can't be bothered to check tonight
I'm not sure if running the 6mm hexes on the front negates some of the effect of running the C/A blocks, I personally think it makes the front end a little more stable (due to increased track) and hence slightly easier to drive over 5mins.

4) I've included the tyres/inserts I've been running too, should add they being coated with LRP Blue Factor additive before each round. At the local club it seems either T27's or CS22's are the most popular (with the T27's being a control tyre for the upcoming Carpet wars over here). I'm running the Sorexs, mainly cause I can't be bothered to change to the others, at it deffiently seems they can hold their own.

Anyway, Hope it helps, any feedback you guys can give would be awesome.

Regards
Ed

Do Jaco 28 mm foams fit on this car? I noticed on mine the stock rims come really close to the ballstud on the front.

Thanks a bunch. If all goes well I should have The MKII and MKIII painted and ready to roll. ( or mangle which is more likely the case)

No such luck. I work in Rancho and it is a bear to get to socal. I will be out in a couple of weeks. My wife is headed out of town so i am going to hit TA in the morning and socal that night!

Sorry guys, looks like my webspace it MIA at the moment, so the pic link won't work.
I'll let you know when (if?) it returns

Default TRF415 MS

Greetings fellow 415ers!

Quick question. Does anybody have any details on the next follow-up chassis Tamiya's coming out later called the ''TRF415 MS"?

Any info will be appreciated.

I couldn't get them to fit, so I bought Orion Fresh Kicks instead. I even have to use the wider 6mm wheel hubs with the orions!

Default crappy bearings

Anyone else had problems with bearings in 415 kit?

Trying to free up these bearings before assembly, and I've got exactly 2 good wheel bearings, 2 ok ones, 2 sub-par ones, and 2 that are completely SEIZED, as in it won't spin, PERIOD. Far as bearings for bulkhead, 1 that spins forever, 1 that spins, 1 that WOBBLES, and one that'll barely spin. At least the bearing for lay-shaft are decent. I've done everything known under the sun to clear out the grease, ect, to no avail. Am I missing some secret to these things?

I know Tamiya isn't including their blue shielded bearings anymore in new kits, but this is un-real. This is probrably my 20th+ Tamiya RC kit, and never seen bearings this crappy. At this point, it's time to extract the blue bearings from my old 414M kit.

Anyone know how to extract the bearings in 414 bulkheads?
