Forty6, yeah.. passing up on the SDW. The yok looks cool and all. But I don't like how the batteries sit farther back. Plus it looks to be a pain to maintain. Just looking it over in the Japanese RC World mag. Also, sometimes I run on parkling lot tracks.. so the open diff is a no-no. I'm pretty satisfied with my RaySpeed SD. Plus I'm looking forward to the new RaySpeed chassis for more battery placement forward (trying to get it like a TC3/4 with battery forward). Anyways.. I'm selling my 415 for $200 to offset the cost of the 415MS. Not that I need the MS. But it would be nice to have. The 415 is just an awesome smooth car. Can't wait til asphalt season opens back up......... next year... Till then... TC4 on carpet.

KilRuf..

There are a few people looking for a 415 in the Wanted section... you should be able to sell that thing rather quick

Kilruf: ask Anthony S. to give me a call (201) 788-5525 or use my new e-mail [email protected]. The ROAR webstie should have been updated with my new contact information.

Koabich: My Tamiya Frog kicked ass in straight line racing. Thorp diff and an astroflight motor....sweet. What really sold me on Tamiya was the Holiday Buggy.

Apex: yok diff set: MR4TC ZS-501

V12: Thanks for the spur gear update. I was on the speedtech site and I can't believe how many Xenon gear sizes are availble. Not sure what range to start with for stock. Someone earlier mentioned 100-102. That seems small for a touring car?

And for the record, Raul's Mi2 has some modifications. Its really an Mi2BMITRF chassis. Which will be paired against my stock TRF 415.

What you need is:

Yokomo

1 x ZS-501 DIFF HALVES - you will get two sets one for the front and one for the rear. you will use the REAR parts, these will have the equal spacing for the outer bearings. It's obvious, as the other set is offset (like it is on the rear diff of the TRF 415).

ZS-506 DIFF RINGS - you will get two (i believe you can use the Tamiya ones too, but I thought it best to use the Yokomo ones just incase).

ZS-507 THRUST BALLS AND WASHERS - these are a real pain! You use both washers and about 6 of the small bearings (you can use ZC-507T if you want Tungsten Carbride Balls, but I couldn't find them anywhere.

ZS-508 DIFF SCREW AND LOCK NUT. - you will get 2 of everything but you only need to use one.

Tamiya

1 x 51055 TRF415 Ball Diff Pulley - the one that's on the rear of the car as standard

1 x 53124 3mm TUNGSTEN-CARBIDE DIFF BALL SET - you could use any 3mm balls, but I think these ones are extremely smooth, they are quite pricey tho

1 x 51092-Tamiya TB Evolution IV,TRF415 46mm Swing Shaft - you could use the aluminium ones too, but I used these just to be on the safe side.

Misc.

Ball Diff grease of some sort, I am using Team Associated Stealth Lube as it was recommended to me by Apex Models (It's much cheaper than the Tamiya stuff too).

2 x 850 Size Ballrace Bearings

Hope this helps

No problem. Yes there are a lot of spur gears available from Xenon.
Its just a pain finding the right one if you have soo many choices.

Im using a 72 teeth/48 DP gear currently on my TRF415. This is the same size as a 96 teeth/64 DP. Works very good and Im running 27T or 17T motors usually.

V12, I've ordered some Kimbrough spurs - I couldn't find the Xenon ones except in Japan and other far away places (Bamberg for example *cough* )

Hopefully the Spurs won't take too long - when they are here I shall take a couple of days off work and test the 415 against the Xray fully!

The gears sold with the Yokomo SD or HPI Pro4 are Xenon gears.
Also available as spares.
Will post a picture later.
