i would think so... it was this year.

the Evo IV was legal for the nats, but im not sure anyone ran it. they had just gotten here, and no one (including myself) had spent much time with it yet, id guess...

John McClean ran his one week old EVO IV at the nats. Unfortunatly by the time he got it sorted out the quals were over.
He did win his main, d, and put in some respectable times that would have put him either the A or high B main.
That old saying goes: to little to late.
He is very happy with the car now.

From previously running Associated cars, I do the same thing. Associated recommends compressing the Diff spring with a pair of plyers several time before you install them.

@dave
a few pages back, u recommanded kawada spur gears..
there are two different kinds, the super tough spurs and the hexa spur gears.
so wich one are better? do both fit the 415 ?
and what about their duralumin pinions, are they also of good quality ?
thx

Does the Yokomo Custom @ SP front diff fits in the front diff for the 415?

Yeah, to be honest though I really only want to have to race one of the regional races, didnt realize they would all be a little trip from San Diego, so hopefully I dont blow out when the time comes.

Default TRF415MS

I have just built my TRF415MS and have to say I'm pretty satisfied so far. It's an impressive kit. I'll post some better pictures later if anyone's interested. Any questions about the kit, what's included etc. I can try to answer.

sort of... you use the rear diff pieces from the Yoke, but with the 3mm balls and pulley from the 415. drops right in the chassis, but you will need longer cvd's, just the "bone" part.... the 46mm ones from the LW suspension.Evo IV fit perfectly, or i have used the 48mm ones from the F201, too .

From google's translator, it said that it includes 4 susp mounts to further narrow the car, a direct center pulley, and a 0 deg alu rear uprights. Is that all? This MS is getting to be a very expensive ride.

Once and for all, does it have 3 or 2.5mm main chassis?
