Thanks!
Ben
correction: have tried it on the 415. the opening needs to be slightly bigger.

Thanks

Yes itīs exactly as you said Marc is using the old suspension on carpet. Pictures from the Touring Car Carpet World Cup in Switzerland confirm this.

OK, then i will order some original arms too and try.
Springs.. Does Yokomo springs fit on the shocks with no modification? Because some Tamiyadamper-guys here say they will work, it would be awsome if i don't have to buy another whole springset

The old arms will not fit on the new MS chassis plate, the blocks are now closer together. Rick

That chassis seems very narrow, the batteries are almost sitting on the edge.

hmm, but LW arms fit on regular chassis plate? Or does the LW kit include a new chassis?

I'm leaning towards buying a regular 415 though, it's cheaper and the old susp looks like it's better on carpet, and the towers and LW set are available later if i want to race on asphalt, which is seldom more than 1 race a year..

Also the rear droop screws are barely touching the chassis too?

The MS's chassis is 2.5mm thick and is designed for the new suspension. When fitting the new suspension on the old 415 you needed masses of spacers to shim it out where as with the new shassis you only need about 3mm of spacers to adjust the wheel base. Its got the blocks about as far apart as the evo 4 has and they have to cut the old wishbones to make them fit on that car.

The blocks themselves are the same on the MS and the old 415.

I don't think the Yokomo springs fit. The Associated spring will work on the Tamiya shocks

This means the old arms wonīt fit the new chassis without dremeling?

Hmm, Sleini told me the old arms will fit but itīs not possible changing the wheelbase.

That's the shock towers (both front and rear) from the first prototype TRF415 cars that Tamiya made around a year ago.

The Yokomo springs do fit the TRF dampers. They are a bit shorter than Associated and Tamiya springs though.

They possibly do fit but you will need the adjustment to get the wheelbase correct. Rick
