Does anyone know where you can get the Kai chassis parts for the 415 - I haven't ever seen them for sale

Why did I need the world championship suspension kit? Is it for carpet or paved? Is it different than the lightweight kit?

My thoughts exactly. Chris for us racing on carpet I'm going to stick with the stock 415 set-up.

I bought the LW suspension kit as an option and I'm not even using it on carpet.

The only benefit I see with the new "worlds suspension package" is the 0 degree rear toe in block. Now with the 0 degree toe in block you need different toe in blocks.

Anyone got a part number for the new '0' Degree rear block? Are they are making it in aluminum too?

Also, I'm looking to find a 25mm Stiffener Post. My kit only came with one and Tamiya has been very unresponsive to my emails. Anyone know where I can find one or if there might be another kit out there that uses a 25mm post??

Thanks in advance!!

I dont have to use so much weight as I have no 2.5mm chassis but I think its maybe not a good idea using all of them at the same place. Im using 45g weight seperated in three parts behind motor and in front of servo for compensating the batteries weight and one part between motor and battery right below the belt. But there is soom room left so the belt cant touch the weight.
Other than this Im using a Xray 6cell battery brace and some other bumper and front body post so this is an additional 20g overall.

These are a great tuning tool for more traction in the back and steering in the front.

I fogot to mention I ended up taking both the front and rear off on my car. I want to save mine just in case when I set up the car for a spool I want to have that option to adjust or I would let you have mine!

http://stores.ebay.com/WalawalaStore had the stiffener posts last week, but they only have the Evo IV steering posts in stock now.

I ordered some spare ones for sharing between the guys at my local club who run 415's.

Sorry, I don't have any spare to sell to you.

You should look at Ebay. I have seen them more than one time there. Yesterday one set was gone away again.

Just call Tamiya directly, 1-800-Tamiyaa and let them know, I had a problem with a shock in the past and they sent out a replacement very fast.

Weight question for you guys.....

Never measured the weight of my 415 when it was new, and since our club racing there's no weight limit, it hasn't been an issue. However, with upcoming race requires 51oz weight for sedans (foam)... how much weight did you guys have to add to your cars? I just measured mine, and it's freaking 3.5 oz under weight that's rtr with body, stock motor, with original suspension.

Just look at the pics of Marc's car, he's got lead all over that thing, just try to keep the weight low and you'll be fine.
