Hey Guys! Just my 2 cents, but we have about 5 guys at my local track that run the MS on carpet with rubber and we pretty much make up half the A main. So I think the LW susp. will work. I also have had a few good hits from others and a board jumping out in front of me and have only managed to bend some pins and crack one front hub carrier. That took me a week to notice. I think the car is great in the hands of a some what experienced driver, Not a novice.

Hey Anthony! I am not sure as my b-day is the day before. I am not sure what is happening yet. I also may have the ta-04 for you that weekend if I can't get a hold of the guy I was going to sell it to.



ANYONE! Am I the only one who noticed the HUGE amount of slop from the axle bearings? I figure I can change the camber and toe about one full degree which makes some setup really hard. Any ways to fix this or are the Tamiya bearings for this that bad. I have never noticed this on any other cars.

That's an extremely brief question which none of us can answer really without knowing more information. I love my and would recommend it to anyone, but it depends on whethers parts are available readily to you, what class you run, what budget you have, etc, etc, etc.

Yes, it is excellent, but so are many other cars. If I were to run stock, I'd be using the Tamiya Evo4 for example, but I run Modified, where the 415 reins supreme in my opinion.

I was wondering if anyone here knew of a good battery strap (graphite) that would work with the 415MS? Kind of like the ones that's available for the T1FK05, Pro 4 and the Yokomo BD. I hate using those tapes.

By chance does anyone know do you need different inner hingepins when you switch from the MS 2.5 lower chassis to the 3mm stock 415 chassis?

The pivot blocks are further apart on the stock chassis so wondering if you can use the same inner hingepins.

---

Also anyone have the part number for those pins....sorry at work and want to look up some things.
