Thanks
It's a compromise. A slight decrease in turn in, but more steering mid to corner exit.

Default Gritty Diff. Any tips or mods?

Any of you guys experience problems with the rear diff? I ran my bnew kit for 10 runs and the rear diff became very gritty. I rebuilt the diff and again after about 4 runs it became gritty and inconsistent again. I have a Yoke and an Hpi and I must say the diffs are very smooth and they last forever. Any of you guys have tips or mods for the 415s diff.

Thumbs up Aluminum rear uprights

By using the aluminum uprights you eliminate the wobbling of the axle. Try moving your rear tires left and right by hand and you'll see what I mean but with the upgrade it is almost eliminated and would also prolong your 950 bearings. Also it elimiminated the gritty feeling when the axles are turned. The upgrades are very smooth and perfectly aligns the bearings and the axles. Two thumbs up!

Within the last 10 pages of this thread there should be a lot of pics from different people that made diff shields to keep debris out of the diff. I havent done it myself, I just run ceramic diff balls and delrin outdrives and it stays smooth.

front and rear diffs, it's a pain in the A$$ to make sure their centered so they don't hit the diff halves

If you have a steel spool there is not much you could do, it will always have very litle steering. Going to a delrin type spool will give you much more steering!!
You could always try Anti-Squat, this will give you more off power steering and softer front springs.

Advices provided by a top Uk driver who used to run the 415 with a spool : Use the A bridge along with the D block on front (1.5 in board toe out), use less spacers under the front camber links, use anti-dive on front (0.7 mm under the D-Block for ex)

All this should help, and as has been said, use softer springs on front than with a one way (if you were using white go for blue).

Looks like they do a pretty good job of keeping it sealed though, and gotta be easier than making your own.

I thought TiR made a spool... MR used it at the Worlds recently (thought I saw it at Speedtech?)

I would be question how durable this was however?

I got the impression that wasnt a production piece, and I also heard he broke an outdrive.

Durability of the TiR spool with delrin outdrives in Mod = 0. It's more suited to stock and super stock racing. A friend of mine used one in mod in his pro4 and eventually broke about one outdrive every two runs or so... He went back to a proper spool.
