Perhaps other guys who run one can answer that one? I know some guys like to use it on carpet, instead of diff. I personally thought they made the car feel 'odd' and had lot of chatter since on carpet, you really don't get wheel slip. Weren't the guys at Reedy race using them outdoors? Fortunate/Unfortunately, my 415 will never see asphalt

Same here, I only ever run on carpet with one ways. Outdoor and lower grip surfaces I flick between spool/locked centre pulley, and the one-ways, depending on how I feel. But at the moment, I'm faster with the oneways, but more consistent (if a reasonably bit slower) with the spool.

I do find that when running the spool I have to run the springs much softer on the front, I just can't get the turn in. However, I expect with a modified it would probably be best (I've been racing exclusively 27t in prep for the BIWS recently). Another benifit of the spool is that it allows you to use brakes, and run different lines, useful in traffic.

I guess it just boils down to personal preference, I really like the pretty much instant turn in of the one-ways. (even when I ran my old MR4-TC I used dual 1-ways in that too).

Default Delrin spool

The delrin Spool is made for the TRF team. They had a huge bag of them at the Reedy race. From what I have heard is they don't hold up very well. I saw Hara break about 6 of them 2 years ago at Reedy.

Default Firsts time building 415

Compared to the Mi2 drivetrain not as free.

is this because the bearing are packed with grease or just need to be broken in.

3 10MM shims used on outdrives on both side to take out the side to side slop

with all the magazine articals saying rear belt base setting was too loose so I went one notch back.

currently breaking in drive train.

dawgmeat.. save your epic motor and buy a mabuchi to break in your cars. much cheaper and mabuchis last forever. ive been using the same one for over a year now.

well Jeff, i ran mostly the HPI... and the Barracuda R3 for a round or two. i intend to bring the 415 next time up, just as a comparison. i really like the 415, just trying to sort out what cars to keep, and which to sell... too many!!!!

i will for sure keep one of the 415's anyway.... may not need both of them tho!
