yup, you use the old MR4TC belt car rear diff to make a front 415. mainly most all of it, except using the 415 pulley and diff balls.

(actually, i used a dremel on a junk one to mock it up- lol...) seems like the length is fine, and there is minor shimming on either side of the diff to take up some slack. that F201 idea might work too, but i didnt have any of those to try! pix to follow...
a buddy mentioned to me the other day that he thought the Yoke diff was my discovery, so i had to go check it out... back on page 56-57!

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.

Here's Surikarn ITSC setup. It works well but you won't be able to use as much spacers under the blocks as him without dremelling the wishbones. However, you can use the same setup with Evo3/4 blocks and the following spacers :

front end :

front 0
rear 1
turnbuckle : 2.5

rear end :

front 2mm
rear 0.5mm
turnbuckle 5mm

I've tried that setup, it works great on asphalt and on carpet aswell.

regarding the blocks it goes like this :

414M blocks are the lowest, 415 are 1mm higher and Evo3/4 are 2mm higher (than 414M blocks).

Mr Canare has just made me think of something. Why wasn't there a new setup sheet enclosed with the MSX conversion kit? There are new adjustment areas that could be filled in, etc such as the upper inner arm mount point on the bulkheads, etc.

Anyone keen to make one up? (tryhard..... )

OK TRF'ers..

I am new to the 415. I have the MSX, and have yet to run it. I am desperately trying to find a light weight suspension kit for this pig. Speedtech RC doesnt have all of the individual parts to piece it together..

Does anyone here have the necessary parts to convert this??

I think you will be able to use a LW Conversion kit for the TA04/05 with some extra parts, someone else can most certainly fill in what parts needed
