Looks like I'm going TRF too. The 415MS is a sweet looking car from the display models at Shizuoka. I'm looking at the Evo IV as well. It's good to have two cars for different conditions.

at thr Regional events, they used 19T, either C2 or Reedy Quad.

at the Nats, they specified a new 23T motor, that you had to get from them... at 25 ea, as i remember. 2 motor maximum!

Jason, Randy, Chris,

Do you guys know of any place besides speedtech that carries Tamiya parts in California? I need a few parts that Steve is out of still for this weekend.

Thanks,

Blake

sorry blake. the other option you have is to take an evoIII A block and flip it upside down, use some spacers to screw it in. works the same thats what i did before i got my A bridge block. ghetto but effective.

You can also order a 414M2 suspension block A and do some minor dremeling where it interferes with the belt. There is more material in the 414 blocks and they are less likely to bend. You will also need to shim it exactly 1 mm above the chassis.
The 414 blocks are the lowest.
The 415 blocks are 1mm higher above the chassis.
The Evo3/4 blocks are 2mm higher than the 414 blocks.

Get one here:
