Will they fit directly or will I need to do some trimmming?

Cheers.

Hey Ballsie,
They fit almost directly, especially if your using the Pro4 axles.
You will need some 10x5 bearings for the hubs, and a 0.7mm shim to place on top of the hub (the hub is lower). Also, they are wider, so place the wheel out further (i countered this by using 4mm hexes, vs 5mm ones I was using on the LWT hubs).
I've got a set mounted on my car at the mo, and really like them (more steering due to changed ackerman, and lower axle height). Just make sure you use the rear most hole on the hub for the steering link.

HiH
Ed

yes, most parts are available on part trees or as Tamiya hop-up option parts ... depending on what you are looking for. The only part that I have not seen are the shock bodies individually.

Hi Guys,

My 415 arrived last night, and looking to get a decent setup for this weekends big race. Ill be running double pink/orange double pink Jacos on ozite carpet. Its a flowing track, definately not tight. Its a std 415, looks to have hardened arms, 3mm chassis. Im pretty limited on suspension blocks, from what i could see this morning before running to work, it had 1D 1A, and i think a 1C in the rear. didnt catch the other one. Has a few in the box it came with also. Currently has a centre one way and front one way installed, and im stuck here because the only other option is a spool. Didnt seem to come with a front ball diff. Ill try to make one from the parts it came with, but not sure (didnt come with a manual either). Ill be running a GTB 5.5R, 3800's. Any help to get me sorted would be GREATLY appreciated Any online manual would be a major bonus Im after a consistent setup, something i can drive easily Many thanks guys

-AJ.

2x HP73507 Front and Rear Hub carriers
4x 10x5 (or 1050 if you like) bearings (8 if you want to use the rears too)

Axle wise, you can use either
TAM53499 Tamiya Universal Axles (as used in the 414 suspension)
OR
HP75187 PRO4 Universal axles (NOT the MIP CVD ones)

Either of these will be a direct fit to the 46mm dogbones, but with the Tamiya axles, you'll need to use axle spacers to take up the play. These were designed for the std hub, in which the bearings are spaced further apart than on the pro4 hub.

Also, when putting the hubs in, you'll need to use either 0.5 or 0.7mm shim to take up play between the knuckle and c-hub. Place on top, to lower the axle height (which is part of the whole point of using them )

No, I didn't paint it myself. JCART RACING - www.jcartracing.net does all my paint work.
