Yes, there are quite a number of us running the 415 on foam with diff's. We have been using the Yokomo diffs primarily in the car.

Congratulations to Arun and Kumpol. There were many sleepless nights of effort put in at that race, and it paid off. The cars were great all weekend.

Are there diffs available other than building one from the yokomo parts?
I built a Yokomo diff and it actually came out really nice, not very expensive either.

I'll just go ahead and take 3 spools for myself, so we only need 1 more taker on a spool.

If you want the blades let me know now so Jurgen can make them and get them at the $3/pair price. I'm getting 10 pairs of em just to have them avalible, I dont like to not have something I need in stock..

I'll put you down for an extra pair. I've already got a pretty good stock of Tamiya stuff, planning on making a huge parts order out of my next paycheck though, I like to use arms and hubs for about 2 racedays then toss them as they get sloppy, so I usually always have those spares on hand.

Toss them?!?! I wonder how quickly kids can build a complete car out of stuff you tossed!

Are you planning on getting the Jürgen diff too? I have an earlier version from him but I heard that it's been improved since.

With my Losi you could have built a car out of stuff I threw away almost once a month.. but I dont have all the spares for the Tamiya build up like that yet, I think I had about $2500 worth of new spares for the XXXS lol.

I'm getting the front and rear diffs from Jurgen.

I'll contact Jurgen and tell him we have our 10. I dont think shipping will be any more to france since he's located in Germany anyway.

I'll have him ship the local spools to me and I'll distribute them so the SoCal guys can save on shipping hopefully.

No problem. Jürgen ships to any place you want.
