Actually waiting on response to the Q about the advantage of them...
HiH

Since David is quite busy at the 1/8th on road worlds at the moment we won't have a precise answer soon... Still, I'm pretty sure they give more steering, otherwise why would they use them ? The question is, what kind of track are they suited to...

The information was of course published on rcZone last week already but for those that did not believe that or want to see the information from Tamiya directly it's posted here.

Here's a translation of the info posted:

More and more in order that it corresponds to the race/lace which is accelerated highly, the front and back bulkhead modifying the form of the upper deck, the frame of TRF415MS furthermore it is low center of gravity conversion. In addition, the bulkhead front and back adopting 2 piece structures, guaranteeing high maintainability. You can taste the running of the champion.

That jacked up price is probably just the estimated retail price, it have to land at around 400-450 bucks

Default 42 or 46mm Driveshafts

Ran my 415 w/ std susp last friday @ my LH track & sort of broke the spool (lt wt ver by Speedtech). Had a spare which was the 1st ver that Steve sold but ran out of time b4 the main started, thus losing my chance to win my class (27 stk) & waste my pole position & top qualifying times from the prev heats. But that's already in the past.

Going to the main subject of my post, I ran my 415 w/ front 46mm steel driveshafts & std size driveshafts in the rear. I got the idea of running 46mm w/ the spool from prev posts here to further reduce the chatter issues when running spools. I guess it did help a little or was it bcoz of the new design of the lt wt spool from Steve. But since I re-installed the orig Speedtech spool, should I still run 46 or 42mm drives? I 'm also currently waiting for the Tamiya spool & will give that a try as well but w/ the same concerns w/ the driveshafts & can I use the alum ver or should I run the Tamiya spool w/ steel ones?

Lastly, I'm also waiting for arrival of the Rev Lt Wt Arms Set for the TB02 & TA04, since the 415 version was a limited release and also have plans of getting the MSX conv. When I install the parts from the set - can I still use the std size driveshafts or do I have to switch to 46mm ones?

Any response will be appreciated.

Default Thumbnails?

Not to be off-topic here too much, but how do you put the nice attached thumbnails section that V12 and topgluer have used on this page.

Looking at multiple places on this forum it seems a standard look option.
You can PM me or post a reply here if it is simple. Thanks,

Well, it's only here in the US that it cost that much. If you order from Japan, it only costs around $150. I don't think EMS shipping will be $100 for such a small item.

That's way cheap if you consider that all bulkheads are included.
