190mph,
I didnt think of that although i think it was some thing else. I was still running the locked center pulleyand i actually put the car completely back together backwards like you mentioned. I cant tell you how many times i have done careles things like that. After redoing the front one way the car would be ok for a couple of turns until the tires got a little warm i think. Then there was nothing in the back.

I just wish tamiya's prices were at least close to the rest of top of the line touring cars out there.
I'm afraid winning will just give them another reason to keep the prices sky high or raise them even more...

I also have a TC4, Traxxas Revo, and RC12L4. It's just sickening on the money I spend.

Just some thought!!!

How many of you do think that Surikarn was not giving a chance to race the 415. I remenber I read someway that Surikarn did prefer the belt drive more than the shaft drive.

No, he likes shaft drive car better but he did say belt drive is more forgiving and should be the best choice if you could not avoid the boards

Mika,

I think you have that backwards. I though in an interview (RCCA?) He said he prefered shaft over belt?

And why would Tamiya 'limit' their drivers from running a certain chassis? This was all out assault on WC, and you'd think they let what ever the driver wanted to run to make/win A main.

Glad Tamiya pulled off back to back World Championships, especially with 414 and 415. I guess their marketing people guessed right, when 415 was released, it was their next 'world' challenger to follow 414. However, I wonder if Tech Racing will get any sort of 'bonus' for helping Tamiya with 415?

Who would've thunk Tamiya could win a World championship? Especially back to back? Losi and AE must be sick to their stomach right about now. This makes all the times I had to put up with trying to keep a TA03 competitive worthwhile

oh yea, this also means I can keep the corny 'we are world champion team' sticker on my car

They should, they spent a whole lot of money as well to be of what they are today. Only when people stop buying then they will surely bring the price down

Why would Tamiya do such a dumb thing?
They clearly went to the worlds to win! So why would they deny one of their best drivers to drive the car he wants?

BTW, Congrats to Marc for becomming WC!

Congrats to Mark, I knew he could do it! Good to see Tamiya with 2 in a row! Now if only they could stop changing the car every 6 months...

Are there no pictures of Marc TRF 415 in the pits because the one on the podium fotos is not his race car when you compare it to the pictures on the orion site. No weigths and so on.....

Congratulations to Marc, Tamiya and Orion for the win. It's pretty cool to see Tamiya take it two times in a row. They've come a long way since the Grasshopper.

You're right, on the podium's car he has a serco saver (don't have on his car), center one-way, blue spring and yellow bars (no color on his race car).
On his race car the servo is mived forward...

Did you notice any other difference???
