You forgot the blue anodized TRF hand-cuffs that comes with the hat! (for 2x the price of normal cuffs!)

Leave it US's finest to harass foreign visitors!

Well, if you are wearing a knitted ski hat in Florida, you WILL get arrested, no excuses.

you must be a mind reader.

i'm quite impressed with your perceptiveness. my racing buddy moved over to a new white belt and i sorta measured his old belt up to mine and the "pitch" of the teeth was quite the same and spacing in-between was same too. only diffrence was my x-ray belt had around three more teeth. i intend to compensate the diffrence using the concentric diff adjustment.

feel free to share your .02's worth.

Default My stoping point

Since my LW conversion is coming in this week, there is no need to go on, put let me say, when I got back into this hobby a 1 1/2 ago, i wanted the Evol 3 but being on the east coast made and wanted something right then and there. i bought the Yok SSD, then the CGM, it was a good car, but i also wanted Evol, maybe because no on else was driving it, i never driven a tamiya since my grasshopper days many moons ago, after putting the 415 together, "TAMIYA UNTIL i DIE FOOL"

Congratulations to Marc Rheinard, his dad Uwe, Tamiya, Orion and anyone else involved in helping Marc become 2004 world champion with the TRF 415. Well done Rick

Try a TRF414/TA04 Low Friction front belt...I believe that it has 3 more teeth than a 415 one

Hey Hebiki,

Did you ever get anything to work today? I made the mistake off putting back in the one way later in the day. Whenever i would let off i would lose the back end. Tons of sterring but very hard to drive. It was like there was a ton of brake dialed in! Oh well tearing it apart tonight to clean everything, maybe something was bound up. If not what do you do to get more rear bit off throttle? I know the droop was off but i dont think it would make it that bad. It was pretty cool being there while Tamiya won another world title!

You likely put in the One-Way backwards. I did that to my center one when putting the kit together and at the track it spun out easily in practice.

Default Congrats to World Champion!

Congrats to the new World Champ Marc Rheinard and the Tamiya TRF415 and Team Orion.

I guess he is as dominant as all our friends from Europe were saying for weeks now.

Isn't it good to own a World Champ car guys? I actually own several World Champ cars at the moment.
