Just think about the new tamiya gold (titanium coated) suspension shafts and damper rods, I see on Marc's car from the Euros that he was running the same on the front swing shafts. I recall someone saying that Alex Racing made the damper rods and they were sold as tamiya. Do Alex make these 46mm swing shafts or are they a future Tamiya hop-up?

Pic here ...

HYBRID,,1200yen,HO-118 TRF415/TB-EVO4 SUSPENSION MOUNT PLATE
Here's a picture of the Hybrid suspension mount plate. It's for roll centre adjustment and if I understood the translation right you get two 0.5mm and two 1mm thick plates in one set.

Internal ratio of the 415 series is 2,1875.

Most who run 64pitch gears in mod use a 102t spur I believe.

Does anybody make a spool that doesn't break for the 415?

Been running the speedtech spool and in 3 meetings have snapped one and bent another.

Only parts I've managed to break on the car in over a seasons racing.

those are perfect...should make rollcenter, pro/antisquat/dive adjustments easier.

I think they are actually 0.7mm and 1mm like the spacers in the 415 kit although mine only arrived today and I haven't measured them.

Thats for the suspension shafts, I've already got them. I'd like the swing shafts for the universal drive shafts.

Thanks for your reply though .

Hi dw,

You also can try Tamiya spool part#49358 (TRF415 Front Direct coupling (Spool)). I got one and it seems to be good.

One version of a spool is to build a complete front diff (Yokomo parts as described on Tamiya USA) but without balls, then just tighten it completely. I ran this solution in my Xray when the spool broke.
