That being the case, did you switch back to the stock black one? Or do you just keep replacing them?

so far zero wear on the outdrives or the blade.
The Corally blades work much better for the Tamiya cars than the Xray. Its just a direct fit.

I might try those corally blades, keep the evil x-ray parts off my tamiya.

Did they fit the dogbone and the outdrive ok? I would figure that the outdrive requires mods.

Yes the outdrives need to dremel as Besercoe wrote.
But the Corally blades seem to be perfect for the Tamiya dogbones at least work the best from all blades available.
I was told this from Jrgen, the guy who makes the aluminium diffs for the 415. I also have the parts here but had no chance to check since now.

well at least the xray comes with a battery strap, and the inline strap works very well on the 415, re the corally parts i will have to have a look at them, but i dont know if i could put an ass car part on my beautiful 415.

I picked up a batt strap on mon. I'll stick it to the deck with some of the cassis braces as I don't use them anyway.

V12, since you have some contacts with Marc, do you think you could get him to give us his exact setup off the worlds ?

We already know that he used HPi silver springs, Alex Racing rll bars, pro4 rear hubs, but what we'd really like to know was where he used the new blocks. I saw on his car there's a flipped block on the front, would also be interesting to know what block that was and how many spacers he used.

I keep replacing them just because I also had bad luck with the black ones, I felt like they didnt let the diff rings sit flat, the diff never worked well with them. I'm out of replacements now though, so I'll propably just go to a new set of plastic outdrives.

Ive gotta get a set of the HPI silver springs, if they are right between yellow and blue, that would be perfect.

From what I've found at SoCal, yellow is very drivable, but not as fast as it can be. Blue makes the car very loose and hard to drive, but when done right it's extremely fast. Hopefully the silver will make the car a little loose so the back end rotates easilly, but a little easier to drive than a Tamiya blue spring.

Randy, how many days of practice and racing have you put them through? From previous experience, the delrin outdrives get notchy quick. I still have the same black outdrives in my car from the Roar Nats...I also have the same black ones in my test car. Once I run out of black ones...I may just try the delrin ones, but I have a feeling that I'd go back to the black ones...they hide dirt REALLY well

Surprizingly the white ones dont get very dirty at SoCal, they stay pretty white I'm only running mod, but they are basically good for 1 raceday before you have a ton of slop and a nice notch.

I've got a lot of new black outdrives, so I'll just mix and match until I find a set that seems really smooth, but then again, it could have just been 1 bad outdrive that I got origionally that wouldnt run smooth.
