Our shop has at least one and possibly two in stock. You can call RCO Hobbies in Hanover PA and ask for Allison. They are open from 3PM to 8 tonight and then again on Thur and Fri 11 to 8. 717-633-9490. Tell Allison that Brian sent you.

Raffaelli,

I beleive speedtech has them in stock right now, check them out here, www.speedtechrc.com.

Rcmaniax,

I am not sure if the MS version you are talking about has a different drive ratio but the 415's ratio is 2.1875. I think last week sombody posted a link to this site:

http://www.thard.co.uk/rc/

It has some really nice excel sheets for gear ratios and suspension blocks.

Good Luck,

Blake

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)
The 6mm hexes are # 53569

Default trf 414.5 M2

I tried an experiment putting the 415 blocks on my 414M2. I even went so far as adding the blue alum. turnbuckles and the 1 deg. alum rear uprights, I then put the 4 mm blue hexes with the blue spacers for the wheels. Then put the short 415 shock kit with all the new blue anodized shock cap, retainers and adjusters and used the same color springs as my 415. I tested it at the Tamiya track and found the car really snapped around the corners hard but it was breaking loose in the rear coming out fo the sweeper. I ended up going to softer springs in the rear(old light blue) the car really came alive. With med. traction and cs27 tires. The car handled nice but not as good as my 415, but with all the blue anodized parts it sure looked good on my 414!

Default Toys for tot race!

Chris,
I'm planning on going but were we going to do the thing at California speedway? Isn't that in December also? Isn't Charlie organizing the race? I will let Alex and Christian know about the toys for tots race and if you tell me your speed secrets for the Mabuchi motor I would love to do that race!
Max

Default the point

Raf,
I just want to settle a little confusion, I was not calling in reguards for myself, I was calling to see if you had gotten a better price. You have, gotten a price, but it really is not good now is it. You should have just gone with your innermost feelings! Good luck with your second mortgage.....

Carl G.,
I hope to meet up with you @ HC on Sunday, but not sure yet. We will talk then. Make sure you wash your TRF shirt/ wardrobe for the next race day...
