Yeah, one of the racers at my club has the stick pack chassis for his 415. Which makes me question why you would want to do that.

Why can't Tamiya come out with a proper side-by-side battery strap

What would the effect be to run that in the upper hole rather than the bottom hole.

I have read the setup posted earlier but I would like to know more of a setup for a U.S style carpet layout where you run D. pink orange D. pink foams and have a diff up front. What I mean as U.S. style layout is tighter more switchbacks with 180's and chicanes.

Anyhelp would be appreciated. I was Losi Xray guy untill I got smart and bought the best car out there.

One last question what are peoples thought of running the refine kit on the carpet with foams. Don't tell me well Reinhard won with it because the guy could drive a shoe box and win. I mean from the normal racer's point of view.

This a picture of the track and the layout that I am runnning on
Anyone??????

That's actually a stick pack chassis for the MSX as opposed to the standard 415s. I agree though, if you want the BEST, then go side x side!

Default TA-05 MS coming soon

I went to the Tamiya Fair in Shizuoka this past weekend. I saw the new TA-05 MS on display.....i'll post pics later today. I knew it was coming....415 is going to be obsolete soon.

I'm sure there is a successor to the 415 coming soon, but not immediately, since the 415MSX/Refine2 is coming out soon.

I can not see the TA05 MS being a better car however.

for the rear, i found the outside hub pins are too short, so you need the longer pins aswell

If they make a carbon double deck chassis plate, it will be better than TRF 415 series for sure.

I am sure what u saw was the same car they had at the tokyo hobby show. It was a car that maizumi built specifically for the show. They did say then that it will not be out for the near future.

the link to it is in the 05 Thread but a few pages back.

Hmmmmm, I disagree. If that were truly the case, then why isn't the Cyclone and BD like the TA05!?!
