Pics of both towers can be found on page 214 - http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...pagenumber=214

I think rtypec (Rod Canare) posted his base setup for the Tamiya track somewhere in this thread. I would start there, Rod should know that track pretty well.

There are several set-up in this thread, you'll just have to go back quite a few to find them! This also depends on your driving style!

The difference in the towers is there is one more hole from shock alignment compared to the original tower. Some racers just drilled another hole in their original.

What is the difference b/t the 415 shock towers and the 415MS shock towers?
I did a comparison on this a while back.

For the front tower, the holes are about 1mm wider, and also about 0.5mm lower.
Also, you lose the 5th body post holes, and the extra camber link holes.

On the rear tower, there are two differences
1) the extra 5th hole on the outside
2) all the holes are around 1mm lower
Also the rear body posts are lower, and you lose the extra camber link holes.

EDIT - Beaten to it.... check SCML's post.

To save search time, here's the standard 415 setup that I used last year. There are a number of good setups posted in this thread and I believe Mr 19T Champ Charlie would have one as well.

I've done this too now.
Took my MS tower, bolted it to the std one in the position 4 holes, then whipped out my dremmel and a 3mm drill bit, and hey presto!

I've found that with the std suspension, it's difficult to get low enough rear ride height with an MS tower, especially if using the alloy shock collars.
Originally I went back to the std plastic collars, but i really really don't like them.
So i drilled the 5th hole in my std tower, put the alloy collars back on, and mounted the std tower (I had to lengthen the shock again too, to get the right droop level).

You are only allowed to run regular diffs @ the Reedy race so no need to experiment playa.

I thought you could run either a front diff or a front spool? You are not allowed to run a one-way.

I stand corrected. It says that must be four wheel drive and 4 wheel braking.

Just got one of these 415s with the stock and LW suspension.

Can't wait to test it on carpet/rubber tires!


The stock chassis seems very stiff compared to my Pro4 chassis....which is nice since I run a newer ozite carpet.

Default Spool

Does anyone know if M.Rheinardt is using the Titanium Racing spool or an other one?
Any help will be appreciate.

Bye

using the stock suspension...

which swing shafts do you use... 42 or 46mm?

just trying to figure out the combo of swing shaft and wheel axle to run the stock suspension.
