Dave why didn´t you tell about the Kawada gears before?
I´have laying around a ton of the Xenon gears now. And they never strip.
But anyway if the Xenons are good enough for Marc so they should work for me also.

Are you using one of those graphite plates as used with the 414 or EVO3 spur gear holders?

No, the Gold wheelbearings will go in when I will rebuild the driveshafts. Maybe next week. I have no track for testing anyway. Spend this evening with the racereport on the Zillisheim race and have to rebuild my motors and other stuff for the next weekend.

Carl since you are on here, did you ever respond back to my friend Anthony S. about running out of region? He's been trying to contact you by email and phone number, but no response. Just checking in...

Kawada's are nice gears as well. I have a few of those. But currently I'm using Xenon. RW's are nice too. But once you go over a certain size.. the gear will warp due to the "2" bolt design.

I'd like to try some of those Gold Bearings as well. Looks like they got a nod in the Demember Issue of RC World... Does Squat sell a full kit for the 415?

They make a full set for the 415 (minus 840 size) for the Old style sus arms.. not the new Light Weight ones

Just joking all of the TRF freaks, your car's are awesome looking, but if you want more tunning options, I would consider looking into the alloy hubs for the Mi2. Rear toe is adjustable at the hub, not with the block. Put you TRF 415 in front of your mirror which you guys spend so Much time, and you begin to see purple........
I really don't want to get involved in this argument and i definately don't want to prolong it but here goes...I started racing with a TC3 when they first came out. When the Mission was released i tried that for about 1 day and then went back to the TC3. In getting a little board with the TC3 (only because i had been running one for 4 years) I purchased the Mi2 becuase I had heard that it was much improved over the Mission. I gave it a fair shot and then sold it to purchased the 415. I was kinda afraid to buy the Tamiya becuase the last Tamiya I had was a Frog and from that experience in my mind Tamiya built toy cars (especially comparing the Frog to the RC10 i got after it).
Quality wise, the 415 is the clear winner by an easy margin. The cars are not even close quality wise. The 415 is much easier to set up and is more adjustable. And the chassis on the 415 is actually stiff enough to race competitively. I was very dissapointed to see how flexable the Mi2 chassis was...even the guys who race it on pavement are upgrading to a thincker chassis and top deck.

I can understand how a person can like a Mi2...i really can...it's a decent car.

The one thing i have been hearing since the photos of the 415 were released was how similar the drivetrain of the 415 is to the Mission. I really cannot see how these 2 drivetrains are at all similar other than they have 2 bets.

Sorry but my two cents!!

Actually the 415 drive train is from Tech Racing... have a look at the MY02 (i believe). The 415 was a joint effort. Blah blah blah.. You'll always get some idiot to argue with ya on something and/or anything.. oh wait.. I'm the idiot now! LOL It's kinda like the whole shaft thing. TC3... SD... Pro4.. Evo IV... all the same? NOT!

So anywayz.... looking forward to getting the 415MS for next season outdoors.

Question.. how did Marc R get the chattering out of using a spool? Or did he? I'm wondering if running mod had anything to do with it. Or if the car was setup to use as little steering throw as possible. That would make more sense... Idea's?

Not to add to the fire or anything.. but,

Drivetrain in Mi2 is nothing new. Check out ABC Carrera IV, vintage 1997. First car where front belt was driven by rear diff. Looks EXACTLY like Mi2 drivetrain.

technically, 415's drivetrain is copy of old Yok YR4TCM with low motor mount (aka YR4M-USA + LCG motor mount), same lay-shaft design.

Anyone interested in a 415 in very good condition with a whole bunch of spares and a front diff can give me a hollar at:
