I ran the 415 on carpet foam last winter at a number of events with high grip. When I first got the car I ran it with the one-way on foams -- fast but not easy to drive and be consistent. So I made a front diff and like the car much more.

Comparing the evo 3 vs. the 415 on carpet, i much preferred the 415. The evo 3 had too much steering...I thinnk due to a more flexible chassis. I glued two upper decks together on the evo 3, which helped it a lot, but the 415 being stiffer just seemed more stable and much easier to drive hard and fast.
hey martin do you have a set up for carpet foam youre websit doesnt work anymore thanks.

The 415 that I have now pretty much has all of the same stuff that is coming on that limmited version ... ... minus the 2.5mm chassis....
Now if Tamiya was to offer it in Red that might be something nice

That might be called the TRF415 Surikarn Edition

IMHO, Tamiya will release a TRF415SE in Red whether he wins the Worlds or not... just as long as he runs the 415 and not the Evo4... If he runs the Evo4... perhaps a Evo4SE

Then again, what if Hara wins? Pro4HE!!!

Exciting times ahead...
