They will fit on a std 415. The last ref are the C-Hubs.

I ran the car today with the DJ suspension, and let me tell you, it's absolutely ballistic. The rear is planted, and it's a track that doesn't forgive a bad setup, seen as it's very very bumpy and demanding in terms of corner speed. Started off with blue on front and fluo yellow on the rear, no roll bars (the rest being exactly as per DJ's setup, apart from the rear toe set to 2), and ran it like that all day, then decided to go softer on springs (yellow front and fluo red on rear), and connect the yellow roll bars, and i gained 4/10th on my quickest lap, with the car being consistantly quicker than my previous best lap time. I felt the car was putting the power down so much better, not as much sensitive to the bumps, all due to the softer springs. It's strange because on the track, it wasn't that different, I'd have said the car was slower to be honest.

Can't wait for next week end and the nationals on that exact same track

Yippe just won an auction on ebay for a 415 , already thinking about what i need to get for the car now. Looking at the DJ suspession module, spool, fixed centre layshaft, toe blocks, low friction belts, anything else ?

With the DJ setup on the rear using 0 degree hubs what toe blocks will i need to get between 1.5 and 3 degree rear toe-in ?

I think i read something about spools and a very light one a few pages back, if anyone knows where to get them i would be greatful.

any tips on stock ( 27t ) gearing on UK tracks would be useful too, may have the car in time for the next BRCA stock National at my old home track of Ashby with alittle luck.

you'll need to get the X-A and X-B blocks to get 2.5 and 3 degrees, and X-C, X-D if you want to use a narrower rear end.

I wouldn't get the DJ suspension for carpet with foam. Just stick to the stock suspension, since it's much more durable.

The C-Hubs that comes stock with the car are fine and you will hardly ever break any. part number is just on the top of this page. Only parts you can eventually need are the front hubs (called steering knuckles by Tamiya) since sometimes the thread for the king pins gets off.

Do not get the DJ suspension if you are running carpet foams.

I test fit a set of GP3300s in my 415 today...they will fit depending on what bars you use. The ones I had just barely touched the belts. With a different type of bar they would fit no problem.

Thanks for that review. Generally a car that feels slow, is actually quite fast. Well... it seems that way when you watch the best guys, because the car is in so much control.

Anyway... was your testing done in Stock or Modified? Very interested in getting this suspension as the track I primarily race on is quite bumpy in places.

I ran it at Ashby in the UK, it's probably one of the most difficult tracks regarding setting your car up in the country. A top Uk driver told me once that if you can get a car to work at ashby, it'll work anywhere else lol. Anyway, I used my 19T to start with, since next week's nationals is in 19T, but my motor is useless outdoors, it was actually just about quicker than a stock. So, as there weren't enough people in mod/19t and we were all in the same heat, I threw in my 12T.So to answer your question, I used both, and the car itself was really good with both stock and mod in.

Ashby used to be my home track when i did more racing than i do now, won the club stock class championship in 2002 ( rc-lab ) again in 2003 ( TB EVO 3 and EVO 3 SE ) and the national Torc championship stock class in 2003 ( EVO 3 and EVO 3 SE ) and i have to agree if you get your car dailed in at Ashby you can get it setup for any track in the country. Ashby set-ups work very well at places at Wrexham or Broxtowe with just a change of gearing.

Not raced a Tamiya since the end of 2003 due to sponsorship but now im getting the 415 i feel like im coming home again. Lets hope i get the car and parts in time for this weekends Ashby national or i may have to spend a few days digging out my old EVO 3 SE and seeing how the old girl can go.
