Last time I checked the part numbers were on the Tamiya USA website.

I have heard that the new MSX kit that will be coming out in December will have a diff, has anybody else heard that?

big issue! Just noticed I cracked the carbon fiber steering rack for my MSX conversion. (Actually think the turn marshall cracked it trying to reattach a ballend)

Tamiya USA does not have the parts for the MSX yet. The part number of #4305556

Can someone overseas help in surfing the web to see of someone outside the US sells this part yet?

Not sure if the standard rack will work.

It actually cracked where the carbon fiber is milled so the flange on the ball bearing can sit flush with the plate...weak design

Huh? question is a little mudy. You mean raise the rear lower blocks up? Theoretically it makes the rear more responsive ie less traction. Something like.5mm is so subtle most racers don't even notice so most dont need to mess with these things. If you're on carpet or extreme high grip track it might be the thing to do (raise the blocks) but who knows- everyone has different opinions

Just a thought....in the interim while Tamiya's getting the parts in, couldn't you just repair it with epoxy??

Contact R10. I know they had MSX spares maybe also the steering rack. At least it΄s the best chance as they are very near Tamiya factory.

I think the standard rack is the same except for the milling for the bearing flange.

front diff part:

Yokomo :
ZS-501 DIFF HALVES - you will get two sets one for the front and one for the rear. You will use the REAR parts, these will have the equal spacing for the outer bearings. It's obvious, as the other set is offset (like it is on the rear diff of the TRF415).

ZS-506 DIFF RINGS - you will get two (I believe you can use the Tamiya ones too, but I thought it best to use the Yokomo ones just incase).

ZS-507 THRUST BALLS AND WASHERS - these are a real pain! You use both washers and about 6 of the small bearings (you can use ZC-507T if you want Tungsten Carbride Balls, but I couldn't find them anywhere.

ZS-508 DIFF SCREW AND LOCK NUT. - you will get 2 of everything but you only need to use one.

ZC-S100 (10mm): Shims for removing play from components on any car.

Tamiya :

51055 TRF415 Ball Diff Pulley - the one that's on the rear of the car as standard

53124 3mm TUNGSTEN-CARBIDE DIFF BALL SET - you could use any 3mm balls, but I think these ones are extremely smooth, they are quite pricey too

51092 Tamiya TB Evolution IV, TRF415 46mm Swing Shaft - you could use the aluminium ones too, but I used these just to be on the safe side.

I think its all about center of gravity with the MS and MSX upgraded cars. but i might be wrong..

Hey i just put my Nylon outdrives in and they are a really bloody tight fit, almost like they are oversized, do they need to wear in or what? I have the final of the drift comp tonight and they are slowing the rear wheels alot when i back off..

I know i didnt bugger up the installation at all and they are the ones meant for 415, i just wanted to know if its normal? they will probably wear in soon enough.

Thanks guys

This is not normal, if anything they usually need to be shimmed up because they are too loose! So you have a bad set of outdrives or you somehow assembled it wrong and increased the length! I wouldn't run it like that!!!
