OMG, you guys are killing me and making my head hurt! I've been reading the post both on the EVO IV and 415, and I still can't decide which car to get. I was pretty much set on getting a EVO IV with a few upgrade parts last night and today, but now, I think I might want to get the 415ms. The only problem with the MS is, my connection won't be able to get the car until after New Year.

Oh, forgot to mention, I've been driving my Xray T1 for the past couple of year, and I want to get another car mainly to replace the T1, but if I get a Tamiya, I'd like to race the TCS events. I've narrowed my choices down to the following three:

415ms
Xray Factory Kit
EVO IV (w/ a few upgrades)

The MS is a great car to go with, and it shouldnt be hard to find one before Jan if you want it bad enough.

There is one for sale in the For Sale Forums NIB, $400 shipped. Not a bad price either.

Hey Randy,
I see that you are using PRS gears, how do you like 'em? Quiet? Does the Pro-lite one have the holes too (like the Robinson Stealth) in smaller sizes (100-110)?

have any of you driven both the Xray FK and the 415ms? I know several pages ago, someone compared T1r and the MS, and that was night and day difference, but I'm just wondering what it'll be like between the FK and the MS. Thanx for all your help by the way. Now I've narrowed it down to 2.

They work great, definately the nicest gears I've run. I run a 104 tooth gear in my MS and it does have the holes to drop some grams.

Hi Guys,

We just got word that we will receive more 415MS soon (double the quantity of our original 2nd batch order) so the Pre-order is open once again for the 415MS. And all pre-order still receive a titanium screw kit included with the kit

Also, like MadJack mentioned, we are soon to have our first shipment of Kai graphite components for the 415 as well
