4mm chassis! Yes Please!
Alloy diffs front and rear!! For carpet please make the diff screw 3mm
the 2.5 screws tend to break. Corally(2.5mm screw) drivers are have that problem once in awhile. Xrays (3mm screw) never break. Just my 2 cents

Here's pics of the diff's I designed and machined. They use Xray style bellville washers and thrust washer with 3mm screws, and delrin blades I also made (same size as corally blades).

I thought you were too busy to make these insane creations of your s now. E-mail me would ya????? [email protected]

Okay then, I fail to see how that doubles as a battery box for 11 packs?!?!? Was there foam in the box as well?

Probably, you stack the packs in the bag inside their cartons they came in when new.

I would also opt for the 4mm chassis (along with a stiffer top dock). I have been running my RDX more and more on carpet. I am sure a thicker chassis for the 415 could remedy that though!

You do not need HPI parts to run foams on a 415. Running the stock 415 suspension, with the correct blocks (I haven't looked at my car in a while but I would say off the top of my head A and D blocks) the carpet guys are running will allow you to place 1.5-2mm worth of shims on the axle so the wheels do not rub while still being of legal width. You will have to shave some material off the top of the ball cup that is connected to the top of the castor block however...not much and this mod will not effect the strength of the ball cup!

Koabich you can also use the LW ballstud/link mount it sits about 1mm lower and gets rid of the rub
