Likewise as well, Hi Chris!!! Bought mine off of Ebay for under $60 w/ shipping included. Shock set is easier to assemble (tightnen up) coz of the groves the top & bottom caps have compared to the ones that have a smooth finish.

On another topic re the MSX conv kit & the Refined kit, which is worth spending for, the conv kit or refined kit (which includes the extra post for the rear bulkhead, the newly designed bottom plate & possibly the adjustable new rear diff)? I asked this question a few posts back and no one responded. Thanks though for any reponse.

it depends, basically the benefits of the msx are:
- lower CG
- Better accessibility to diffs, spool, and center spur assembly.

If like me you spend lot of time rebuilding diffs and trying one ways/spools etc., it definitely is worth it.

On satoshis car, please note the HPI springs which are shorter and a bit more consisntent i ve been told.. all top racers here use them.

I think wait for the refine 2 would be better.Not only it comes with a new chassis,also with the alu stifferner that thte convertion doesn't have.And most importantly,its has the new adjustable diffs!

Anyway,I just gotten my MSX convertion kit today!!

I can't wait to go home and fix it up!!!

Oh the beautifully machined alu bulkheads....Sweet!!!

Hmmm....

I have a feeling that Marc R wasn't running a spool in his foam car at vegas, and was actually using a diff... my resoning?
This pic... you can clearly see a metal rim between outdrive and pulley....

Yes you´re right. In the German forum he said he was using a frontdiff in the foam car.

What I'd like to know is, when is Tamiya going to release a battery bar for the 415? Any ideas on that? I should be getting my MSX conversion kit from RainbowTEN soon!

Or does anyone know of any aftermarket company that sells the battery bar? I'd prefer Tamiya's since I can't use aftermarket parts in Tamiya races.

I think it's safe to say that 99% of foam racers use a front diff. If you asked every guy in the A Main from IIC or any other foam national I'm sure they would say they ran a diff.

I just wanted to know why it is better to run a diff when using foams??? Is it significantly better than a spool or a one way??? (on asphalt and not carpet - I'm referring to).

I just received my Shooter spool, looks really fine and should take a lot of abuse. But they do require 46mm swing shafts right? My 42 ones have a slight problem just reaching the outdrives

your correct, the foam car had the diff (a Reedy race proto). His rubber car had the one-way set-up.
