They have propably taken all of the pre-orders for the expected # of kits, there may be more kits coming in, and chances are not everyone that preordered one will have the cash...

Hey guys, for the record I see Raul has finally received his TRF415 and got rid of that purple carpet rat.

Welcome to the land of the TRF, I'm sure he will be more than happy after running his car this weekend that he made the switch.

On a seperate note, my car continues to work so well with the dual one-ways on carpet, (in stock) that I'm reluctant to change a thing.

Jimmy Jacobson has a post with the spool set-up, which I need to try but then again he is running modiifed. I let you know how the spool works in stock

I have a few friends who had the belt flip on thier 415's. They added the belt tensioner (that bolts under the antenna mount) and that cured the problem on stock and 19T motors. I run one on mine and have the front and rear at stockk loose setting (lined up with white mark) and no problems running 19T.

I got a question, I was checking out Marc's car on my MS box, and noticed something. On the rear bulkheads right in front of the diff it looks like there is a post connecting them. Is this something that was on the origional 415 and they left out on the MS, or is it something more than just a post?

It would be the heatsink beam, a $5 option part.

Hi Guys,

We just received a call from Tamiya yesterday that we have another batch of 415MS coming in. This batch will arrive at the end of the month. The first batch should be arriving to our warehouse sometime next week.

We will open up the pre-order again.

Steve Wang
