Your welcome Jimmy. The kit doesn't include the MS shock towers so you could buy them seperate. Or you could just wait for the release of the TRF415 MSX conversion kit late this month or early October here in the US. The MSX kit includes the shock towers & the new low CG bulkheads which I'm waiting to purchase myself (just waiting for the exact selling price from SpeedTech RC). Other guys were able to pre-order the kit straight from Japan for around $150 w/out shipping cost.

Default DJ Pro Suspension + MSX

Has anyone got the DJ Pro Suspension yet? I know there were some initial batches that sold out quick - but what have peoples experiences been with them?

Ive pre-ordered the MSX kit but wondering if to add the DJ Pro to the list - or wait and see what people think of them together..

$150 USD? I am confused (and worried) the list price for the conversion (part no #49378) is $400 according to the tamiyausa site. So I was happy to pay the nice people at etamiya $280 USD for pre-ordering as you always expect to pay more if you want something now.. I also enquired of a few Japanese sellers and they gave me a similar price..

So where does this $150 come from?

(Panic starts setting in!)

you can pre-order the MSX kit from www.rc-champ.co.jp i think it shows 16800 yen, roughly 155-ish. due sept 28, they said.... send 'em an email to check for sure.

they had a package price with the DJ suspension for like 21800. keep in mind the have some pretty steep shipping and paypal fees, as well, just so you are prepared!

Has anyone bought from them before around the same amount ($150 or more) & how much was the total (fees & EMS costs) after order has been processed & shipped to the US?

Coz' if it's going to be the same amount when other stores & SpeedTech finally come out with the actual selling price & shipping costs included, then I'd rather wait for that instead.

Any reply will be appreciated

the last transaction i had was when i got my TA05 right before the Memphis TCS, back in july. ill have to see if i can find the email that had the fees involved... seems like i got the kit, Ti screws, both oneways, swaybars, Aramid belts... total in parts was 19659 Yen, shipping was 5400 (!), plus Paypal fee of 1564... total was 26623. im not sure if the EMS Shipping fees are figured on total weight, or $$ value... you can email them and get a total, im sure. they told me it was due in Sept 28th.

Can any one tell me why or what to do about the sway bar on my 415 having side to side play. It's like the mounts are molded to big. If this has been covered here before sorry 300 pages is alot to go thru. I did find where someone used set screw collars in between the mounts to keep it from moving.
