X_X blocks on the front = 184mm with TRC tires and the lightweight suspension. I think the stock arms are the same track.

It gave me more turn-in and a hair quicker transition through chicanes.

Sorry for all of the questions but this is my first time with a Tamiya car and I'm not up on all of the facts.

One last question, I hope, where is the best place to buy Tamiya parts and hop ups? It seems the Towers and Stormers and Speedtech RC are all out of stock on most of the parts I need to make a front diff.

Thanks for your replies.

if you have the part number you can call tamiya directly 800-TAMIYA-A to order parts.

The best place I have found to order Tamiya stuff is from Japan. Do an ebay store search for Walawala. He'll have anything you need at the cheapest pricing, with the cheapest shipping (even cheaper than if you ordered it from the US). It normally takes me about 1.5-2 weeks to get stuff from him. There is also another store called Jason's RC on ebay. Check him out as well.

Speedtech is the place to go for customer service and prices. Ultimate Hobbies had everything I needed to make a front diff yesterday, so you may try them if Steve is out of stock on the parts you need.

Default 415MS

Raced the 415ms at SoCal last night, and I must say it is the best touring car out of the box I have ever driven. After driving Xray's for three years and tuning them the best I can, the MS felt faster the first night! At the end of the first qualifier my car was starting to get a little slow,(7 turn, 5 minutes, noodled out of my mind) and Todd Hodge was starting to catch me. He tried to pass me at the end of the straight and we got together, sending my car into the brick wall. The durability of the car surprised me, as nothing broke (except a rim in 2 places). The only problem I had all day was the front belt flipped over, but tightining the the diff two clicks cured that. Overall I'm very happy with the car, and would recomend it to anyone with a large budget.

i had that flipped belt problem before, if you dont have the belt stabilizer, just put 4 -3 clicks on the diff adjuster or just get the
belt stasbilizer on 2 front clicks

Glad to see you got on the site Patrick. Did you see the post from Rod a page or so back on how to get some more steering out of the car?

One thing I noticed while pulling my car apart today is that the 2 front camber links have about a 1mm difference between them, though both had 1 degree of camber. I think I'm gonna have to countersink these screw holes..
