hate to point out the obvious but

1 - how do the cells fit, the blukhead extend into the slots.

That centre mount does not look secure enough AS-IS , the motor would probably twist too much....

if there gonna publish something,then they should get it writte.
another example.
in the review of the worlds,they said surikarn,chose the tbevo4,he didnt,he wanted the 415,but by time he went to change chassis,it had been marked.after its marked,you cant change it.
thats just an example.
also they said,'new tamiya signing adam rogers'he hasnt signed anything to do with tamiya.he is an privateer on the chassis front,only backed by TIR and LRP.
i read racer,so i cant slate them that much,but i do chuckle sometimes to myself.
The Adam Rodgers quote is in Radio Race car seen it when i was reading it in the news agents Under a pic of him holding his 415.

Also with the 415/Evo 4 thing if Tamiya state he chose a Evo 4 then that is what they are going to print. They like all other mags will not print a statement that would get them in trouble with a manufacturer.

Its an RC magazine, not a Government press release. Lets get some perspective.

Hehe, guys, it's news about toy cars, yes expensive toy cars, but still toy cars. The new TRF417 has only 3 shocks. It is really a monster.www.tamiyanews.com

The truth is, no one knows apart form him and a few others, you don't even know for sure what happened, so why argue about it. Fact is, when he decided that the Evo4 wasn't quick enough, it was too late, it wasn't tamiya's mistake but his own for letting a car he didn't want to race be marked. Period.

Moving back to the original point...
Racer has on at least three seperate occasions I can think of, named the car (the MSX) wrongly... thats not coincidence, or a one-off mistake. I'm even pretty sure (and I'll try to find the report to support it... EDIT: Just check the report from Barham, 416 in the text, 415MSX in the tech chart!) that one of the reports I read had them quoting the car as the 416 in the text, but in the tech chart as an MSX... simply put, that smacks of PPP, and idleness.

Also, currently not very happy with Racer, after their JRXS article... but thats another story...

Been using it for months, i like it, makes the rear very stable. For indoors, forget it it don't work, or at least, i haven't been able to find a good setup for it.
