how's the slop on that system? I tried Eagle (Integy) ones on my old 414M and they were POS. Bent on one crash, and sloppier then original plastic.

no slop on steering knuckle, hub carrier required some work and yes the Yok front bumper kit is a perfect fit. Tamiya and Yokomo must have something going because a lot of their parts are interchangeble, i.e. diff outdrive bearing, front dif, etcf

The 40wt was rediculously thick, I like the car to react quick, so my 30wt should be good..

49 is for limited edition items, it means they will make only a selected number of kits, so you gotta pic yours before they all go.

Kreator--sounds bad, but check that you have the diff in the correct alignment holes i.e. both nubs are in 4 forward or 4 back. I watched a local tear his hair out along with going thru 2 or 3 belts.

Aside from that you should not be going thru belts often. If you race Open Mod often maybe every 2 months. That would be on carpet with locked center and a spool.

Try: Stock setup w/40wt oil & the front A-bridge block

Lots of emphasis on the front A block. Without it you won't get enough steering

This setup works at most tracks I race at pretty good (Carpet Rubber Tire & Pavement)

I have been hearing of people flipping the belts on the 415. I cannot understand how this is happening. I have had my belts so loose and have never had a problem. I have been running the belt stabilizer since day one though. That may be the reason i have not had any problems. Might want to check that part out!

it may be that they are too tight. plus, if i remember from my automotive days, once a belt has flipped, it will have a bigger tendency to do so again.

i have been running mine at 1 click tighter since the 2nd month i got it, and no problems, stock or 19T indoors, outdoors mod 8x2. and i havent got the upper tensioner yet, either...

I think once that belt twists it will tend to keep twisting because it is now deformed. You may not be able to see it but the rubber is internally damaged!
Belt tensioner will help but you should tighten belt after 4 or 5 hard runs. One to two clicks at a time.
Some drivetrains on the 415 vary a little as far as side play. If there is a lot of side to side movement on the pully you may want to shim it out, this too will help.
Last, like Rod said save the white belts for racing and the black belts for practice. The black ones are a little stiffer and hold up better than the white.
Just my 2 !
