Thanks, hard to see in that picture but it does look like it is clearing. Rim flex does not hit either?

Default Tires and Clearance

I run the 415. I run 28mm tires all the way around. It is not normal except in the MW. I use the Silver F201 6mm hex hubs. THe 415 does not need the shims if you use them. You could also by 26mm rims and you would be fine. the EVo IV requires the shims and the 6mm hex adapter.

Carl, I don't beleive Jaco is same rubber as TRC. I remember Jack from Jaco mentioning it over on some other tire thread that was around. Also, if you go Jaco, make sure to get THIS year's 28mm. They changed the wheel, and internal diameter is larger then last year's. No clearance issues. For internal diameter of wheel, seems to be TRC is smallest, Parma is middle, and Jaco largest. New Jaco's will almost fit stock king pin with ball cup not shaved. TRC, even with Evo4 kingpin, requires shaving top of ball cup. I'm using an open eyelet design ball cup, so no clearance issues with any rims.

My biggest beef with all these manufactures though, why can't they make a tire that's a standard width? They all list 28mm width on the box, but some are 28.5, and one set at 29mm! and one at 27mm. Even with same brand, different width from one package to next. And even with listed 0mm offset, they don't fit the same.

Tamiya steel ball connector (5mm ball ends) part # is TAM50592 around $4 for package of 10.

rccrazy, 6mm hex would work, but some of us have to have our cars be 190mm wide! standard hex is 4mm on 415, so you're pusing your car 2mm wider per side, making car way over 190mm.

Yes I saw your review. Very interesting. But which car will be your favourite car now? And did you compare with your EVO III?
I couldn't pick a favourite from the two - they are both excellent cars - but I think due to better parts availability and a couple of other points, I'll probably keep the Xray. As for my EVO III, I gave up with it a while ago and simply took the servos and radio gear off it, so there was no way to test it. However, I prefered the way the Xray and TRF handled in comparison - I could never get enough steering on the EVO III, somehow.

Hmmm .... my race was f...§$%XY. Was on TQ but the guy on 2nd place crashed into me in 2 of the A-Mains so lost the race and finished in 2nd place. Not the result I wanted as the 415 was a rocket at this track.

I think next race will be in about 3 weeks. Don´t know of any other race in between. Also need a brake after 3 weekends in a row.
I can believe you! I've still go too much going on to get to any races at the moment I think there is one in Erlangen this coming weekend, but I'm in Duisburg

Cheers, Mark.

I think I'll stick with Jaco or TRC, the Parma foams were cheaper, but outer ring on front Plaids were so thin! about only 1/8"! by the time I rounded the edges, the outer ring wasn't even making contact.

dawg, if you're using regular offset rims like TRC, it'll stay under 190mm, assuming you are using aluminum rear hubs and 1/2mm shim. However, can't use the rear sway bar, since it'll rub.
which aluminum rear hub are you talking about Tamita or sqaure#

unfortunately marc doesn't know what oil he ran.silver sway bars (yellow without colour...) and silver ae springs were used. blocks were a/a/a/c (?).
at the orion speed weekend he used his lrp tcm car....its the very first 415 prototype and really "old" with the original dirt from the tcm i think....

This is true if you use the front blocks recommended in the manual. I run 1.5 mm worth of shims on the stock hexes on each wheel with the D1 and A1 block in front and I am at 188mm. If you use this block combination with the 6mm hexes, you should be at 189mm and you'll be fine.

Post foam tire clearance!

What if you use the a/c block in the front and then used the 6mm hex for the wheels. Won't that give you the clearance without going over the 190mm limit?
just me 2!

Yes, you would be under 190mm then too. And that clearance should be fine!

Thanks for the feelback. I now this was posted earlier, but does anyone know the part # for the 6mm hex.

Sounds like I will most likely stick with the Parma rims and tires. I prefer the GRP rubber. I beleive you are correct, JACO uses a different rubber compund. Besides my car ran great with the Parma's mounted.

This sunday is a race at Hobby Chamber in CT. I will most likely run the dual one-way setup and then switch to the spool to see the difference. (provided I have time, since teching electric guys is always a process.....you don't find tech headaches in nitro)
