The Evo4MS is not released yet, so nobody will know for sure, but the stock Evo 4 blocks are 1mm higher than the MS or 415 blocks.

HiH

That would be awesome if Fibre-lyte produced it, they are really high quality, and I wouldnt mind paying extra for quality.

Alright, I have talked to Jurgen about the aluminum spools, and come to a price. The spool he is going to make will be similar in shape to the Speedtech spool, but will be cut to allow driveshaft pin blades that he will also make for the 415 driveshafts. If we can get 10 spools ordered, the price will be $50 each, plus about $5 to ship. I'll take 2 or 3 for myself, so anyone else interested please PM me and we'll work out some details on this one. If you need extra blades, the price will be $3 a pair.

Default 415MS foam/carpet setup

I just got back from the track, and I came up with a killer foam tire carpet setup for the 415MS that I thought that I would share. I know people say that this car is the wrong car for carpet, but I just got mine dialed in, and it was totaly hooked up. I used the HPI pro4 steering knuckles so that the 28mm foams would work. You have to use the axles from the non-MS 415 for the pro4 knuckles to work and you use the 46mm MS bones. I also used Losi 6 degree caster blocks. The hinge pin hole has to be drilled out, but other than that they work perfectly and are far stronger than the Tamiya ones. FRONT---- 55wt. oil, Associated purple springs, shocks in middle hole on arm and one in from the outside on the tower, no spacers under the front camber link, A bridge, A front block flipped upside down to lower the front of the arms( the front of the arms sit lower than the back), 2mm spacer in front of the arm on the hinge pin, steering rack lowered all the way, akerman ball studs raised 4mm, rear hole in pro4 steering knuckles for turnbuckle, 2mm droop, 1 degree toe out, Purple/Orange Jaco wheels at 58mm, front Yokomo diff. loose, center direct pulley, no sway bar. REAR---50wt. oil, Associated copper springs, shocks in middle hole on arm and outer on tower, 1X front block raised 1mm, D block on rear flat on chassis, 1degree hubs reversed( Left on right, Right on left), 3mm spacer in front of rear arm on hinge pin, 2mm spacer under inner camber link, 1mm spacer under outer in middle hole on hub, 4mm droop, diff. loose, Purple Jaco's, 0.5mm spacer on hex, Mazda 6 slammed.
This setup worked awesome for stock racing on a tight track. Very smooth and predictable. TRC foams were a little looser on the track. The car handles flawlessly with this setup for a car designed for asphault. The car handled better on carpet than the Xrays even!

Yes, just like the XRay or Corally ones, only these will fit the Tamiya.

The price is cheap if we get 10 people, so far I have 3 spools sold, so we need 7 more takers.

From what Jürgen told me the Xray blades won´t work very good with the Tamiya driveshafts but the Corally are the ones he used during development of his diffs.

Randy
Is the spool made from steel or aluminium? I think aluminium.
Have to talk to Jürgen soon.

The Corraly Blades are a perfect fit for the Tamiya dog bones. The Xray ones will fit but they don't fit correctly and will probably fly off as you are running.

The spools are made out of aluminum. We need 3 more takers to get them at $50 each.

give you £50 the lot....

Oh and congrats on "your thing" stew

had a good day today, car felt awesome after changing to the roll bars, might have had a smidge to much steering, but to be honest most of my problems came from poor driving (fancy that.... )

Later
