ummm.. im not the DJ. if i was... it'd be hard house, techno mixed in with some choice lyrices from eminem and ludacris.. like "move b!tch... get out the way!" at some select scenes of the DVD.

Izzy and Paul are the "musical coordinators"

at least its not 70s porn with the "twang ta-ta-twang twang" going in the background!

dont worry..TCS nats dvd will have better music. Ian will take a shot at it. (think slow songs! )

(your welcome rod)... but thats what you get when you mix prostock and sportsmans together.

a few more hours and i think i can get a good set up at socal. if you ever come down to socal chris, let me know.... i can show you around. difuser said he's coming down thanksgiving. why dont u join him? we can do a tamiya/socal race weekend!

Man!!! I warned izzy not to watch too much porn while editing the video... See how easy it is to be influenced by the evil in this world?

A front diff, which Tamiya doesn't even make. You need to put together a Yokomo diff or buy the custom made outdrives from a guy listed in this thread.
And the locked layshaft pully (available from Tamiya).

Default help me out here

As a long time CGM owner I wanted to change up a bit within the next week, I will be buying a new car, does tamiya or anybody else makes a front diff for the 415, second does the car work better on carpet with or without the LW conversion. its coming the stretch 415 and Mi2.

This is taken from the RCzone.net Worlds preveiw

Tamiya - Surikarn surprised everybody in South Africa in 2002 with his TRF414M2 and took the title in front of all the pre-race favourites in a great way. In Florida he will be defending his title with the TB Evo4. No doubt a very difficult job but he already beat the best once this year at the Reedy Race. This time he will be using another car though, the latest shaft drive Tamiya, the TB Evo4. It seems that the strong TRF team will be running both the TB Evo4 shaft drive car and the belt drive TRF415 at the race. Marc Rheinard and Satoshi Maezumi for example will use the TRF415 while Karn will run the TB Evo4 as mentioned.

So looks like Surikarn is going to be using the evo4 instead of the 415, interesting....

Tamiya will have 2 race teams at the worlds. Surikarn with the EVO IV, Marc Rheinard and Maezumi with the 415. Heard this about 2 weeks ago from one guy who should know this.
