Hello
Does TRF415MS comes with normal differential or one-way in front?

I think i will buy TRF415MS. Is it still competitive car?
What spare parts must i buy at the begining and what tuning parts must i have at the begining?

Yep, your right and i'm wrong. Dont pick on me, I'm sick and full of pain killers and feel like I've been bashed by a yeti.

The 415s all come with one way front diffs and front one way centre pulleys. Don't know if the MSX will come with the one way or spool.

Straight out of the box the only thing I have that isn't kit on my 415 is a RC Square transponder/servo mount. And some aluminium uprights on the back. Otherwise the 415MS has the best of Tamiya's parts in it.

I'd wait out for the 415MSX. Most of the Tamiya factory racers are giving it rave reviews, and it is a better car maintainence wise. Wait till November (rumoured) for it.

Also check your droop levels. Running off a Yokomo Gauge, I tend to run either #4 or #5. To get more inital steering, try more rear droop.

Just out of interest, can you jot down your current setup, will make it easier to see what to adjust.

I thought the MSX was a conversion for the MS when it comes out

At RCRacer.com.au we had our Japanese Correspondent talk to a representative of Tamiya and they said that it is being released as a conversion kit first and they will decide after that whether to release a full MSX kit upon viewing the MSX conversion sales. Check out this link in the 3rd last paragraph - http://www.rcracer.com.au/reviews/jap_nats/index.php

20,000 Yen estimated street price = $178 USD. OUCH! I think it'll be worth it for me though.

Yes, it would be easier if we knew the whole setup.
yeh, increasing the rear droop will yeild more turn in, and I would probably go back to the red sway bars, the yellows seem to work fairly well in high traction situations but I find they do decrease turn-in a bit.

If you could let us know your whole setup in would be better.

Have you experimented with shock mounting positions much ?

A spool is a locked diff, so when you go around corners, both wheels will be spinning at the same speed. Supposely great for mod cars, not all that useful for less powered cars. It is a Tamiya optional part.

Dunno about rebound stroke.
