The batteries look like they are in the same spot as on my MS, but the chassis definately is different than the MS chassis. I held mine up and looked and the shape is a hair different. The electronics side of the chassis is also narrower than the MS, I looked how much of his motor hangs off the chassis, and it is more than my motor does.

It worked descent for the first time out, if I can get it to feel like my Losi did then I will be hooked, the quality of everything is top notch. I'm pretty sure the Losi Alfa will get the car to feel closer to how I want it, and now there's a good selection of Ride bodies that are supposed to do the same thing as well, so we'll see.

Cool. So the old suspension DOES work with the MS chassis without the "dremelling"? Just want to make absolutely sure. It's nice to have the option of running either a 3mm and a 2.5mm chassis.

Hmmm good thing I didn't get the MS since I'm running my car on carpet hehe. But something to consider for you MS guys.. if you wanna go with old suspension on the MS... and need to adjust wheel base... just buy the TA04 SS arm set. The arms are the same length as the original 415 arms... but the wheel base on the arms are shorter. Just something to consider. Also don't forget to use D blocks instead of A blocks on the old style suspension arms.

Hey Randy,

After today, I'm pretty "toyed" out right now since we just got back from a long play day. I won't be at Socal on Tuesday. Besides I still have to do some xmas shopping

Sorry for it being a little OT but here are some pics from today:

Last one...and this is even Tamiya related. My bro in the Raybrig garage. Yes, Tamiya sponsors some of these cars and they are saweet...almost as good looking as the girls.

Okay, I'm done veering off topic. We now return to our regularly scheduled program

Default MS Kit Pulley

Does the MS kit come with a direct pulley or a one way pulley?

Sparx: If your doing carpet I'd suggest a regular 415. Stiffer chassis, Stronger suspension and the lightweight suspension is ment for outdoor rubber.

I run a regular 415 on carpet rubber no prob!
