a couple of months ago i was in tokyo and i went to one of your store in akihabara. at that time i wanted to buy trf 415 but it was out of stock. i was only visiting japan for a week, so i couldnt wait, but any way i ended up spending alot of money, around total of 70000+++ is spare parts and option for trf 415, tb evo 3, and trf 414. any way, when i got back to indonesia i immediately bought trf 415 and hop it up. now its exactly the same as the ms version except for the shock tower. so if you have in stock the front and rear shock tower of the 415ms edition and also the low friction belt, please pm me and may be we can arrange something. i think that your store is great and you have good prices. i still have so many things that i wanted to buy but i could not fit it into my bag.

to eliminate slop, u can use the evo4 c-hubs with the old suspension..

for the ones who don't know, leini is one of the fast guys here in germany, his sugestions are worth to be tried out.

Default 415 Steering

Hey guys,
I have been running the 415 on carpet with foams and love it. I just need to get a little more steering...
This is the first Tamiya I've had since the Frog. I was wondering if there is any way to get the slop out of the steering. The steering racks are able to move up and down on the posts and the carbon firber piece that attaches to each rack has some play where the bearings fit.
What have you guys done to remove this slop?
Thanks

Tamiya has spacers you can use to take the slop out of that and other places.
Don't know the exact part numbers, but they are being refered to somewhere on this thread.

i think "no more play" is not that right, but thanks

i don't have any pics but perhaps i'll meet v12 at the next cs-cup and he could do some....

one more important thing:i removed the servo saver and put a fixed steering arm on the servo. i couldn't believe how much better the car is to drive. it's so exact now...

Hi Koabich,
on mine to stop the posts moving up and down I run 3 of the 0.1mm axle spacers (the ones that you place between the hub bearings and the hex retaining pin). I place 1 between the bottom alloy collar and steering arm (underneath) and the other two on top of the arm, beneath the two alloy spacers.
completely eleminates all the slop, works well.

some people say slop and some say play. Play sounds a little weird but should be OK as long as everybody understand this.

Leini
your modification is interesting. Does it really make a difference in slop or is it the old hub was worn a little?
When is the CS-Cup and what track?

Thanks
