Don't put any o-rings on the piston rod, it's useless and will only reduce the amount of droop you can use.

all right! i hear the p/n 76017 TRF Lightened spur (R.C Edition) is worth at least .03 per lap!!!!

good luck at Reedy, Rod!

This is truly a sad day! No more Calsonic logo's on your car! It's o.k.
Change is good!

Anyone try the DJ rear suspension mod with the non LW suspension? Might be into the DJ setup for my 415 but I run the stock suspension setup.

Not a clue Anthony, not a clue!!

I know Spashett was testing with his standard 415MS before he left for USA, I am sure he would have been working on something else if they where going to run a different car.....

It might be that the Japanise drivers are going to run the new TA-05, but guess we all will know tonight

Yeh, my guess would be a TA05, but you really never know.

Tamiya had the TA05 on dispaly at the RCX show this last weekend. But the TA05 is a tub based belt car like the TA04 so I doubt that anyone would be running one competitively at a Reddy level of racing, unless it runs for exhibition or marketing purposes only.

Don't, it's quite disappointing. It's only updated bulkheads ala BD or Cyclone. Supposedly lower CoG with the top deck being lower, but I fail to see the logic in it, since there's so much more aluminium high over the cells on the rear right bulkhead, not to mention the two stiffeners between the bulkheads, to actually lower the CoG.

So, as there are none of the things I wanted to see on an updated 415 (like a new drivetrain with larger pulleys for durability, or the motor closer to the centreline, just to name a few), I'll stick with my actual car thank you.

But a couple of them are only 1.198 - still should be a good practice pack though.
