Probably too much work...

I believe you can drill a small hole in the pulleys and place a pin in place to "lock" the two in place.

A guy locally bought something like that and said it was a limited production run of locked center pulleys.

Default MIP CVD's

Does anybody know what part #'s I need to change my front universals to MIP. I thought I read somewhere a ways back that this was do-able! I know Speedtech has MIP's in stock but he didn't know with what combo of part #'s to use! Any help would be appreciated!

hey guys,
Just going over my car today, getting setup for the weekend. Was changing the shock oil over, and noticed a slight dead spot on my shocks.
Took them apart and had a little look at the pistons. Anyway, they were fine, but there was a fair amount of movement between the piston and the 2 e-clips....
Solved it now by placing 1 0.1mm shim underneath the piston. Theres absolutely no dead spot now, shaft moves straight away

Just thought I'd let you know....

Later
Ed

Insead of using shims We were told many years ago to bend the e clip slightly through the center to tighten them up. Basicly bending the two ends up. And installing them on both sides of the pistons.

This weekend the Indoor Nationals in Germany are held in Dortmund at a big model exhibition, rubber racing on carpet. Will start tomorrow. Today there was something of a warmup race on the same track and from what I heard most of the drivers were there already.
Just read a message Marc Rheinard TQed and won the Modified class easily being the only on 26 laps.

Results:
1. Marc Rheinard - TRF415
2. Marc Fischer - Corally RDX
3. Benni Gröschel - HPI Pro4
4. Jilles Groskamp - Xray FK05
5. Patrick Gassauer - Yokomo BD or SDW

I´m not there but I hope there are some informations throughout the day. A live report was planned but had to be cancelled for any reason.

Thanks for the tip, I'll give a try next time i take my shocks apart... For now though, I'm happy with how the shims are working. Piston would still spin on the shaft, but the was no up/down play.

Yes, it is a good idea to install the shim from the beginning, because even in the beginning there is play in this part. I make it so that the piston no longer can rotate on the shaft.

Need some help here guys! No response to this thread!
I have some wheel hop with a spool. It causes the car to push when this happens. I've use anti-wear grease and kept a close eye on the wear of the joints but I think MIP's will help out a lot!
I know somebody has tried this, I just don't remember who? Thanks!!!

I had my first race meet with my new 415 (a week and a bit old) and I was very happy with its pace. Given that two of the best rubber racers in Australia were at the meet, my best laps were consistently around 0.4sec off theirs which I was fairly happy with. Their grip levels were just awesome though... to the point where you could simply HEAR the grip and the tyres squealing even at slow speeds. I don't know what they are doing to their tyres... but its just amazing!!

But yeh.... in a comparison between the 415 and the Evo IV in Modified, I'm quite content to say that the 415 is the superior car for that job.... and I feel that they would be fairly similiar in performance at stock and 19t also. Overall.... VERY happy with the 415. Only thing is.... my low friction belts haven't broken yet but I have a BIT of the belt thats kind of tearing away, like fine strands of it. Has anyone else had this?? I did the last final on that belt too and it worked out alright.
