I know! I was really disappointed too. I was planning on doing a whole new shell with the new MSX stickers!

I'd have loved some MSX stickers too, not just 415MS stickers again which aren't even as good as the std 415 stickers. Ahh well...

odawg315 - What are you on about?

Ohh okay, an auction. Link doesn't work so I don't know what you are talking about really, but doesn't matter.

I've built my MSX kit now. Didn't take me too long and the build went together really well. Its amazing how easy things are to do with this car. I removed the diffs to test it out as well as adjusting belt tension and it can be done SOOO easy with this new conversion. Can't wait to get out to the track to see how much better it handles as well.

Hi
you would NOT need to use the that sink, as a heat sink tends to cover the vents within the motor, therefor affecting its air flow optomisation. the CCF is a stand alone product, and will help to keep cool the brushes as well as the magnets from going soft within the motor.

@trackside trucke

If you take a closer look at the heat sink you will see that the vents are NOT covered. I've been using it for quite some time and it works great. Sometimes the magnets of the motor stop the ventilators.

TRF415 & TB EVO 4 SUSP BLOCK


Quick question re susp blks of the 415 & EVO 4, in particular the X susp block. Are the blocks the same in regards to their height from top to bottom when on top of the bottom plate? Or are they only used as the label suggests for which kit (TB EVO 4 Susp mount X #53712 / TRF415 Susp mount X #51069)?

Thanks in advance for the replies.

Talking RE:EVO blocks and etc.etc.

My understanding is they are different in height. Not sure about from hole to hole! I've used the Evo blocks on my 414M2 and it worked great. I believe it was C-A front and A-A back with no spacers underneath.

Just wanted to give everybody a heads up! I was at Ultimate hobby and they had 5 MSX conversion kits on the shelf and 4 Lt wt. suspension kits for 415 also!
Not sure on the prices.

This heatsink has open areas in it so that you can put those where the vents are in the can so it still does have those. Plus with the shaping of the heatsink, air can flow over it easily as its in the same direction as what the car is going. I think that there could be a use for both, just I don't think it would fit because the heatsink goes considerably higher then the CCF mount.

Anyone know if the older yokomo mr4tc special outdrives will work when building a front diff for the 415?

Hi Tony,you may want to check out the Tamiya USA website under the TRF page for the parts needed from Yokomo to make a front diff.Part numbers are there also for reference.

Thanks for the reply Max (MaxPower) & also on the heads up re the MSX conv kit @ Ultimate Hobbies. Checked out their website & also free shipping for internet & mail orders. The only thing they did'nt have on their website was the lt wt rev susp kits.

I previously installed 415 susp blocks on my 414M (extremely TRF'd hopped-up). I'm still in the process of setting it up to run properly for my asphalt track. I currently have in the front B/X & the rear B/B. I know the 414 has it's own thread but since you mentioned your 414M2, was wondering if you can post or pm me your set-up on your 414M2 when you get a chance.

Thanks again.
