Wow-the $470 415ms is starting to edge towards a $550++ 415. But-I suppose Ive got that much tied into one of my Xrays.
Ray,
Most people use the regular 415 for carpet since it has the stiffer chassis and more durable suspension bits than the MS. It is also about $100 cheaper than the MS too. So if you go with the non-MS 415, the parts in my sig will work just fine.

Thanks SO much. Good to know I dont need to et the MS version.

I am hearing totally conflicting reports about it on foam tires. One guy says fine-another says-28mm will hit 2 or 3 parts of the front suspension. I know the camber link ball cup will hit the inside of the rim (my EvoIII did that). But what concerns me is if the rim hits the steering blocks or the spring perches-then you have to mount the shocks more inboard-which screws with the intended wheelrates. Then car might handle right-maybe not.

I am on a fact finding mission!! Can you tell? if this doesnt wotrk out-I might buy a TB02 and race GT2 and maybe see if I can run GT1 with it too at a Regional TCS event. My ultimate goal for this spring.

There are several guys here that regularly use the 415 with foamies on carpet. They can provide you with more insight.

Thanks forty6. All but one part to build the diff is in stock at SpeedtechRC!!! Not too shabby!! The only missing part is a diff adjusting kit.

I'm pretty well known for switching cars, but I think I can say the MS will be my car through 05 (or at least for the next 3 months before they come out with a new version of it)

It is fun switching cars but sometimes it slows me down a tad as I'm always working on new setups and I never have a car long enough to really get her dialed in the way I would like on many different tracks.

I feel like you do. I'm staying with my EVO IV til another version comes out. I just like shaft cars plus I can use a standard diff for my car and I will be running some TCS races with it so I need to keep it all Tamiya.

Ray,
The only places we have had consistent problems is with the upper kingpin- the stock one will never clear without machining, so we use EVO IV upper kingpin's. No mor rubbing. THe next spot is the lower swaybar mount. I was thinking of flipping the arms over on moving the mount to the inner shock hole, since I only use one position for my shocks on the arm(outer). I am using the 1mm spacer, with 4mm hexes, and TM wheels 28 mm frt and rear. These are the only problems we have. The EVO IV frt knuckles rub with wheels wider than 25mm, and need modifications, the 415 frt knuckles have a more sweeped arm. Which is nice. I hope this helps, we have a major race happening on the 2nd, I will give more insight then... Happy holidays to all...

Ray, I have been toiying with making up a CVD style driveshaft instead of the the internal driveshafts. I have old Schumacher Mi2 stub axles, and I am in the hunt for shafts that fit the cups, Schuies are to large. Maybe Associated shafts, they definitely fit Schuie's stubs. I just have to test some stuff. I will keep you posted. Everyone makes alloy CDV wannabee's I just have to find the right one..

For those TCS races that are too tight for a 1 way, I didnt see anything in the rulebook about lubricating my 1 way with JB weld

I actually find that the stock CVA's seem to last a lot longer than a CVD style driveshaft. With my Losi I was replacing the dogbone after every raceday.
