Haha, Leini youīre making jokes.

See you in Zillisheim.

Hmm, there a good and bad things with the 415. I like it very much on the track. I have been at a track I know very well two weeks ago for testing. With stock motors I had exactly the same laptimes with both cars. But with the 415 I was able for faster laptimes right in the beginning of a run. With the EVO3 I usually need 2 or 3 laps. Also laptimes were much more consistent with the 415. Regarding handling I think itīs easier using a lot of steering with the 415 as itīs with the EVO3. Also in the end I didnīt have to use a front rollbar with the 415 which is far better regarding handling but I never had this working with the EVO3.
I have to say I just have about 30 runs now with the 415 including the last weekend race. And itīs only on carpet with CS27 tires.
Bad thing is working on the 415 is a pain. Especially in compare to the EVO3. Changing a rear diff needs about 1 or 2 minutes with the EVO. Dontīknow eaxtly but itīs very long with the 415. At the race I had problems with the front belt. We had just 4 qualifiers with 2 to count and I lost 2 of them because of the frontbelt. One time the belt was twisting and was on the wrong side then. In the last qualifier which had been fast enough for TQ the frontbelt broke. Changing the belt needed more than one hour as it needs a nearly complete stripdown of the car. I didnīt have any spare with me as they didnīt arrive before the race but one of the other guys had a white frontbelt for me.
I think I will stay with the 415 but I think I have to do some things for the future.
Hi V12, I doing fine - how are you?

Oops, I've not been to the German forum for a while - I'll check it out

Interesting information about the 415 - I still have to conclude my testing of the 415 and Xray FK - I'm still waiting for some parts before I can test them

I hope to still get some races done this year, but time is running out, but I want to get some practice before I go to the Winternats in Florida in Feb for the Nitro 1/10th race - looking forward to that already!!

Cheers, Mark.

Then he switched to the EVO4 and was doing faster lap times, so he went with the EVO4 for the Worlds.

i am pretty sure that surikarn was running the 415 at the worlds, thats what i always saw on his pit table anyways.

Has anyone got any idea if Xenon spur gears are metric or imperial pitch? Thanks Rick

Guys,

Going to a big carpet race and need some advice.

Can't run my dual one-way combo, so I was going to switch to a spool but,

Do I need to take out my center one way if I change to a spool?

THanks....

I think they are 64 pitch (says on the gear). The only metric one I know of is the Tamiya ones.

the Xenon gears are the usual 48 or 64 DP. Iīm running them in all of my cars since about 2 years and they are very good. Yokomo and HPI also have them in the cars now.

The first time I used glass tape with a car was with a 414 and I was honesty suprised how quick & smooth the battery taping process was. Its even easier with a 415!

Don't let the fact that you have to buy a $5 roll of tape every 6 months discourage you from a great car.

Plus, I've had more problems with battery mounting systems than I've had with tape in terms of durability AND reliability

If I remember correctly it's YOKZS501 the rear diff out drives to make a front diff using Tamiya's parts for the rear diff.

Ok, I think i've made my mind on what car I want to purchase...... Out of these cars, Pro4, R3, Mi2, Evo4, Trf415. 415, and the Pro4 are my top two choices, but since the Pro4 is chaft, and i have a shaft, i'll get the TRF415,. Anyone know where I can get one for a cheaper price than 349.99 er, I think it was 359.99. www.ultimatehobbies.com is the site. Steve, can you match the price? They also offer freeshipping. Thanks....
