What's your set uo on it? Is it good with the red springs? You use the same spring set on the front? I'll try it out when I get mine.

Does anyone who has been running Tamiya's for a long time have the answer to this...

Are all these Red, Yellow, and Blue springs the same? They come in different parts sets and unfortunately Tamiya just lables them soft, medium, and hard instead of a pounds rating.

If they are different...which set is the one that comes with the 415's??

part# 53440


part# 53163


part #53333

The first packet is the one that people recognise as being the Tamiya Red, Tamiya Yellow, Tamiya Blue and Tamiya White. These Tamiya Yellows are the ones that come in the 415 kit.

F.Alonso is right,
the first set is the "normal" springs, as used with the 415.

The second set looks to be the ones used with the DJ suspension, and the third are shorter version onf the same springs (beleive they work on the shorter shocks, a'la TL01)

RCmodel HK said that they will get the MSX conversion on the 10th october.

The Shooter spool looks great, perfect that they will offer replacement outdrives too.

Default DJ indoors...msx -270.00

How much less than 270.00........... Has anyone had luck with the DJ setup in doors I have it for TCS racing due to the fact that U can only use Tamiya tires and what I found is the car wants to swap ends due to the 1way/tires..

On my Pre-order, I've been told around the 26th of sept for the release date, so 5 days later is the 30th of sept... so Oct is probably more likely

No go on the Mod nat though.... moving house this weekend, back oop north

Later
Ed

Did you pre-order with R10 or Speedtech? If R10 do they have a link to pre-order?
Thanks

I used David Jun's setup as a base setup. It's on the Tamiya USA website.

Does anyone have an extra servo saver set for the 415? I've looked at SpeedTechRC but they're all out.

I think just get any servo saver from other manufacturer will work also.

I tend not to like the tamiya one.As it will develop sloop easily.The plastic they use for the servo saver is a little weak.

dom.

you can use a kimbrough servo saver...or just don't use one and fit a regular servo horn. should be fine...i believe most people including myself run their cars this way.
