Does anyone know when/if Tamiya is going to release the rear delrin diff that the team drivers have been using?

Anyone heard any rumors of a front diff?

I know some drivers are using the EVO III delrin diff. Maybe that is the one you saw.

190-- I ran the LW suspension with Foam on the 415 this weekend with the old C-hub and knuckle swapped in. You have to ream the arm out to 3mm to use the old hinge pin also. To avoid the kinpin clearance issues use the new kingpin from the LW set and use a 6mm drill bit to relieve a touch of material from the top of the hub. This is so you can tighten the stud all the way down. If you are staying with the original suspension try to get a set of the kingpins to use on the front.

As for clearance issues I did add 1mm to the 4mm hex hub at the front and 2mm to the rear to get clearance from shock ends.

I was running the new Speedmind Hybrid2 front tire and the 35 rear. Both tires were the 28mm width. By changing the front hubs out this allowed me to still run @190mm and keep the new suspension.

what is the advantage of running the old hubs and knucles?
is it so the hubs can clear the wider wheels for foams?and bigger wheel bearings lol.

TRF correct on all points. Also to keep the width down to 190mm. The front was way wide and no clearance inboard to clear shocks etc. Unless you put an extra 4mm per side on I had the 6mm hub with 2mm spacing to get 28mm foams to clear.

I was also trying to avoid using the HPI conversion also.

I think Tamiya have more than one hope for the worlds. And from what I have heard yesterday there will be two racingteams at the worlds.
Maybe the next 415 is a 415MR?

Guess what...? Overall place 1 + 2.
Both prefer the 415 over the EVO IV and will be running the 415 at the worlds. Just spoke with them yesterday.
Do you know why did they choose to use the regular suspensions???
Any info on their setup? Modifcations?

Regards

I think the old suspension just worked better for them than the new. Maybe it´s really old suspension for carpet and new suspension for asphalt. But remember this is for rubber tires, we don´t have foams here with electric racing.

Regarding setup if you have Marc´s EVO III setupsheet from last years Indoor Nationals you´re on the right way. From that you can adapt to any Tamiya car. Some guys were trying white springs front and rear but I think the usual white/blues is the way to go.

Hmm. I forgot anything?
This time Sorex28 was the control tire and I think about all drivers used the Team Orion/JB blue inserts. Most drivers used PF Mazda or Nemesis.
Modifications were white belts and rear uprights were the aluminium 1°.
Interesting thing was some other not-Tamiya drivers as Jonas Andersson and others used the Tamiya shocks with the exact same springs,pistons and oil as the TRF guys. So there are new cars as the Ti2 and TRO4?

Anybody noticed Tamiya will release not only a 2.5mm chassis but also some new damper stays?

Anyone know what the diffeence is on the shock towers. I remeber talk about drilling more holes in the rear to stand the shock up more with the new suspension.
