quick Q.
Was browsing on R10 this afternoon and came across this

0013400153847,TAMIYA,2400YEN,53847 46mm ASSEMBRY UNIVERSAL SHAFT SET(2Pcs.)

Now, is this the Ti coloured shafts we've been seeing?
The part number isn't either the alu or steel 46mm swing shafts... and doesn't match any other parts of the universals, at least what I can tell.

Ed

No, I'm affraid it's not. It's the universals in 46mm that came out when the TA05 was released. They are steel with steel axles.

EDIT - Bummer...

ok, cheers ballsie...

and agreed... bugger

On another point... I want to check that the spring rates on my chart are correct. Has anyone got the rates from a different source?
The reason I ask is becuase spashett was using HPI Blues yesterday, because they are apparently slightly softer than the Tamiya Yellows. However I've checked, and on my sheet, the yellow is ment to be 2 lb/in lighter

I've checked my calculations, as the HPI's are specified in gf/mm (1 lb/in = 17.9 gf/mm)... and it still comes up with the Tamiya springs being softer.

Thanks in advance
Ed

that's not them either - i already have that part. It's the rod that passed through the suspension arm into both suspension blocks.

After a little break i am getting ready to jump back in. What is everyones opinion on the MSX. I have the original 415 but with the lightweight suspension so it should work correct? I run at SoCal usually so it would be for high grip asphalt stock racing, maybe some 19 turn. I dont want to spend what looks like will be $275 for no reason other than to have a trick looking car. Although that is almost reason enough for me as much as i have been on the track lately.

Sorry, I guess that 46mm part threw me off ! My standard 415 hinge pins are longer.

Default body shell

Hi

I will be geting a 415ms at the weekend and wonder what would be a good shell to get? I was thinking of a mazda 6. The only thing is I will be racing at big, fast flowing tracks and small tight tracks. What do you all think?

Hi Tony
Mazda 6 is a good all round bet, as is the Dodge 3.0 and 2.0. Also have a look at the Ride bodyshells, the Mk2 Stratus and Accord TSX in particular.

Just out of interest, where will you be running with the car?

HiH
Ed
