Thanks guy's I new the DJ rear end was released in USA but wasn't sure about conversion kit. I was going to get a new chassis but I might wait till the release of the MSX and get the whole thing.

About the TRF415MSX Conversion Kit.

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=49378

-------

Question for the Tamiya sponsored guy who have run 415MSX...

How stiff is it compared to a 3mm chassis 415? I like some of the feature that the new bulkheads allow for but I am wondernig how stiff the chassis is. Mainly because I run foams on carpet most of the year.

I'm not 100% sure, but remember this is aimed at a TRF 415MS upgrade (i.e. 2.5mm lower deck) - I'm sure someone said the MSX had a different thickness of lower deck???

It won't need the screw holes for the chassis stiffeners for the mid-decks coz it doesn't have any, I'm sure the standard chassis plates will fit the MSX bulkheads.

Has anyone run a car with the "X" blocks on their car like in the worlds upgrade
kit. If so what did you find out?

PS I think 200 is a good guess for the msx is not that bad those bulkhead's take a lot of machining. It will be nice to remove a diff, or switch between the one-way, or spool without taking a lot of the car apart. JMO.
