Just order them from Tower Hobbies or you local hobby store. Most should carry a decent range of 64P pinions.

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.

Yup. Currently I'm running A/XA on the front and XA/B on the rear of my 415. I find that narrowring the blocks tends to give the car more grip at that end. Bear in mind though that narrowing the blocks adjusts not only your camber links, but also the shock positions, in effect placing the shocks in a more upright position. Deffiently something to play around with, I was going to try a comparison between XA/B, X/C and A/D on the rear today, and see what the differences were, but it got too hot, and it was too much hassle. If it's cooler tomorrow I might dash off for a couple of hours and try it.

There has been very minimal discussion about the DJ suspension, is that course no one can get hold of them or are they just a flop idea?

DJ was on here when they were first announced but have not seen him since. I love the idea but not being able ot buy them anywhere, and zero discussion has been frustrating

Sounds like I'd like them.

Tryhard's supposely has tried the DJ and supposed to work nicely on ashphalt outdoor tracks. Indoors it is worth sticking with the standard rear end.

i've had the dj rear end for a few weeks now. i've found it gives a little more rear grip enough that i now run 1.5 rear toe everywhere i go and its stil planted. also made the steering slightly more aggressive.

I had one on my 415 but one arm already bended in a race ($$$ gone). DJ arm really freeup rear but still good traction and stable, improve steering hugely. The only problem for me: I need to buy near arm to keep using it...
