Maxepower, is this the TA04 set @ ultimate? or is this specific to 415?

owe'in ya both a beer-
Keith
This is the 415 kit that Ultimate Hobbies has. Tamiya isn't making this kit anymore but like I said Ultimate has (4) of the 415 kits, which are probably the only ones in existance on the planet. So these kits come with the 46MM swing shafts and all the shims, spacers, screws, uprights, arms,connectors, etc. etc.
So you better get one before their all gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So.........Don't say I didn't warn you!!!!!!!!!!!

Rubber tire? Bad set of tire perhaps? Sidewalls?
Suspension is great, the ride height is around 7mm all around, radio trims seem to be all good and the car appears to be fine tweak wise. I mounted the MSX on an MS chassis and I have to say that while my car was a bit funny to drive because of the tweak, I generally agree with you on the behaviour of it. I believe that it is something however that you can dial out so I'm not typically fussed. I may try something like the center post mod but for the moment I'm just going to view the MSX as a different car to the MS, so therefore requires a different setup.

Ummmm, I run Modified and with Rubber tyres, Take Off 27s actually. I did change tyres as well as I thought that might have been what the cause was but it still didn't appear to be much different. When I do find the cause I'll certainly let you guys know.

BTW - thanks for everyone's input on my problem.

Keith
The HPI hubs are using 10x5 bearings. And yes 8 of them if you want using them front and rear.
9x5 bearings are wrong, these are for the 415MS/EVO4 hubs.

The postman just brought my 415 MSX kit.
But the Tamiya T-shirt also isn´t included.
In the next days I will rebuild my 415 then using the new parts.

At least I got a MSX what wasn´t that easy. So better a MSX than a T-shirt.

When i spoke to Dave Spashett at the Barham mod national, he told me that becuase the CoG of the MSX is lower, you can get away with running the car softer, as this will allow the car to roll more, and hence generate more grip.
I think the two things I saw were
1) shocks in position two on the arms (outside hole, two hole side)
2) slightly softer springs, HPI Blues I believe

However, I do think that this was with a 3mm chassis plate... but not entirely sure. I'm gonna look into swapping between 2.5 and 3mm plates on my MSX, and see what diff i can find. (don't particularly want to do it... pain in the arse, as I know the 3mm one is tweaked badly on the front right, and has been for about the past year ... thank F for an MIP tweak station!)

@ MDawson; If you could, can you post some pics of the centre post? Quite intrigued as to how you've mounted it with regards to batts and so forth. You could email them, and I'll post them onto my website (pm me for an email address).

Regards
Ed

t-shirt too small... fits me "snuggly" apparently, according to some of my so-called mates ..... and I'm generally a UK L or XL.
Personally I think it shows off my "curves" wonderfully....

what is the better for carpet tracks: use a standard 415 with the MSX kit (3mm chassis) or the MS version with MSX kit (2.5mm chassis+LWS)???

thanks.
