Just out of curosity, what patrs on the car were not from Tamiya?

Thanks
ohh, just like in formula one racing, you let the mechanic do all the engine works and the driver tells him what he wants or what's wrong with the engine good tandem though, the tamiya mechanic and marc rheinard driving the car

I own a 415 and am thinking about getting the LW suspension kit for it. I run carpet with foam tires, seldom rubber, is the Lw suspension kit a good idea or not?

A couple of us ran the 415 at the snowbirds with great results! However, in order to fit a 28mm foam tire, we had to run the HPI steering knuckle with the wheel axle from the old suspension.

The old suspension works very well though, and requires no mods. I ran my car this way most of the year.

Are you talking about the pro 4 steering knuckles? do these fit, or do you have to dremel a bit

Yes, for the pro4. The package from HPI comes with one knuckle and one rear upright, so you have to buy at least two packs to get the complete set.

No dremeling, but I forgot to mention that you need 4 5x10mm bearings. We also like to put a thin shim on the top and bottom of the knuckle.

Rainbow Ten has Atlas's diff covers, both the 415 and 414-version fits on 415 diffs. Search for "Diff" and you should find them. I have them on my diff and it's not gritty at all even after more than 15 packs.
Actually, you can use a circlecutter and some lexan and glue to make your own covers. I tried this but it was a mess gluing them to the pulley

Cool thanx for the info guys. Ive had another problem with the diff. When I try to tighten the diff the diff nut has stripped the inside of the outdrive. Im not overtightening it because the diff still feels very loose. Anybody else run into this problem?

I've setup my 415 with the stock suspension running 28mm foams no problems and no mods.

Parma and TM Racing foams have fit with no clearence issues. The rims of the TMs are actually a little bigger then Parma's so they fit even better to clear the king pins/ballcups.

I own both the LW and stock suspension and found it was just easier to setup the car using the stock suspension.

Yeah 28mm foams fit the standard suspension, I just didnt know if they fit the LW suspension. I really dont see a advantage to swichting to the LW kit, especially for foam carpet racing.

Overall the stock suspension is more durable and requires no mods to run the foams....that's pretty much the reason I run it that way.
