must be me then.... had it happen with both types (std and Ti). Tools are all good too (pretty new hudy's). Never had any trouble getting any out with threadlock either... Tamiya's stuff is the best i've used.

@ Tral. Yes LW stands for lightweight suspension. The MS comes std with, as do the Evo4 (both std and MS)

HiH

I use only Hudy-wrenches and replaces the tips every other year to prevent round heads... The standard Tamiya-screws is a pain with the shallow hex, Take Off's Hard Steel "Chrome" screws is the sh!t
Weird is that, Almost all Ti-screws (Yokomo, Take Off, Speedmind is those i've tried) seems to be a bit oversize in the hex, perfect for getting rounded..

You can use the standard 415 as long as you use the lightweight suspension from the MS.

Tamiya does not sell the outdrives separately at this time. I had the same misfortune, and I sent an e-mail to Tamiya America and they are helping me out. I would suggest you e-mail them as well.

Hi All

What is the benefit of using the different hinge pin blocks to adjust how wide the car is? IE the car is wider when you use D/D on the front as to A/A.

d blocks widen the car which gives more stability in the corner but is harder to get in the corner.
the a blocks give better intial turn in but less stable through the corner.
indoors on carpet use d blocks on ashelt use a blocks on front

What is the difference between A and D blocks in milimeters?

Are XA XB XC and XD block wider than standard or narrower?

Although this is probably the most frequent question in this forum, I'll ask anyways -

I want to get a used TRF 415 soon but I'm still unsure which of the three versions is most suitable? I'm not gunning for a national or world championship and I race once a month but I do need a more suitable car to replace my Racer TC3 that I've had for three years.

The standard 415 is as tough as nails and will serve you well.

if carpet go for the stock 415 with sum upgrades.
if ashpelt then wait for the 415msx.
