Regarding the Kawada spur gears, Dave sent a few to me a while back, and I have to say they are propably the nicest gears I've run. Very true and quiet, and they lasted forever.

In addition you get these:
1 B
1 D
1 X
1 D bridge
So this what is normally used for racing or is there are better combination for the 415ms

It's propably a really good starting point, and just tune from there for your perticular track conditions.

If any one needs RW gears Schumacher USA imports the full range in 48P and 64P. They are manchined, are quiet and also last forever. We also import the Titanium Racing Ti Pinions....

I've just bought an "MS" from Japan, hopefully taking delivery next week

I think I'll probably take the titanium bits off my other 415 and sell it now.

I use this combination..RW spurs and Ti pinions...they are great. The RW's are perfect and the Ti pinions are light and last forever!!

Need some more... they Xenon ones are OK I guess if your in a pinch...they are very brittle..but are fairly strong.... but the Kawada is a much better true spinning spur gear

I saw them on precision rc's site, so I was going to order a few there. Believe it or not, I've never tried a RW gear, I guess I really need to. I think I just like black gears better.

What size gear do I need for this car anyway, 64pitch?

I remember Dan Garber (Tamiya factory driver) Had a 106 kawada gear on his.

Randy..

I use anywhere from a 102~108T spur.. that should cover most gear ratios..

Default LW arms

First off I know that the Lw arms are not designed for carpet, but I tried them out just for fun .I'm very sorry to say that it is the weakiest and most fragile arm in the history oh RC cars, anybody who has the 415Ms and is planning racing carpet, YOUR GOING TO IN THE HURT LOCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I kinda got the idea that the MS is more of an asphault car anyway, with the thinner chassis. The 415 might be the better car for the rug..
