Now that it's official...If you guys think the lightweight spools out there are light, boy are you in for a treat with the new 415 spool. Weighs almost like nothing. It's an aluminum center shaft (looks like one of those chassis posts) with delrin outdrives that are capped off with the blue outdrive rings. The outrives are keyed with a pin that goes through the aluminum shaft, with the bearing going over the shaft to keep it in place. I don't have pictures but DJ's got them on his car...Tiiiiyt!

Sounds nice but also by the description sounds kinda fragile for those of us who tap the walls from time to time. What type of cost vs. what other spools for the 415 cost.

Yeh. I'd love to get a Tamiya one of course.... but I'm worried about longevity as well. It SOUNDS nice... but I hope it can withstand the rigours of well.... the odd bump here and there.

But think about it, Tamiya is making this with delrin outdrives, so it soundslike they will be replaceable, and with that said at least you should be able to get the outdrives Separately.

just a quickie, for those who have ordered the new dj pro module suspension, how are you going to get more than 1.5 degrees rear toe on the car when it comes with zero on the hub?

Sounds a bit too much like the TiR spool to me, no thank you...

Default LW suspension arms and stock arm

Since I've been rained in for the past three weeks. I have just too much time on my hands..Since we can mix up the DJ rear arms with the LW arms, can we use the front stock arms with the rear LW arms. I ask this because the stock has less slop and is stronger then the LW front arms.

Wyd, I dont think your question was answered fully.

The C1, and C2 knuckles ARE the same between the hard and standard materials. They different from each other though. Also this is not what makes the caster. It is the upright itself that make the caster 4 deg.

Delrin outdrives will not last, which is why Ti Racing don't even make the Delrin outdrive version of their spool any more (they are all now aluminum outdrives).

There is no reason why they shouldn't work! Talked to DJ himself about this question, and he said the kit doesn't come with bearings or shafts. It was designed as an MS hop-up, so if you wanted to use DJ's susp. kit you will have to buy the longer shafts(46)mm, I think and the smaller bearings that go in the rear uprights on the kit! Plus the spacers of coarse to make up the narrow width of the arms. Last Dave said all the testing he did was with the MS, but I myself would think that it would improve the handling regardless of what you have up front! Just my 2$.
