Yeh, ideally though you would want to get some proper 64dp spurs to go with the 64dp pinions. Tamiya pitch (0.4) is 95% or so 64dp and works okay, but would not be as good as using true 64dp with true 64dp, if ya know what I mean.

The regular 415 goes for $350 at Speedtech, but the MS Refine 2 should be coming out soon.....hopefully, it's not *too* much more than that!

Given that Tamiya now has the MSX conversion, I think most guys are looking to scoop-up used examples (that's what I did, anyway), so you'll probably have a hard time finding one for less than $200. Scour the "For Sale" section of the forum regularly.....no doubt you'll find one there

Its actually a direct center pulley, not a oneway. Basically just removes the center oneway and then gives you the option of running a spool if you have one. I just leave mine in anyway so I can swap between a spool and oneway easily.

I have done some practicing with the MSX with LWT suspension. The car is very good and consistent. I think that the sweet spot of setup is a lot bigger with this car as opposed to the old one so that you can find a good setup quicker. That's just from my experience. I can the car with and without the center post brace (a MDawson trick) and generally found that the car pushed a bit more with it on. As I was suffering from understeer anyway, the times improved but I think that if they were both setup right, that the results would be similiar.

Heya GUys.


Ok i am having a prob with my MSX......

It seems to be VERY lacking in mid corner steering/grip....

I am running ED's set-up from a few pages back, but i have changed to a oneway to try and get a little more steering.....


Any ideas?


Glenn
