If you check the link in my sig, I run a website basically dedicated to the 415. there are also other useful sites in the links section on there.
Unfortuantly, I've been meaning to do some updates, but I've jsut moved house, and no internet connection at home yet...

I totally agree w/ you & Jack2 as well. Not trying to be defensive or what, just trying to help guys out who patronize Tamiya RC kits since I totally & only run Tamiya RC kits since I began the hobby way back in 2000. I thought of switching to Yok & XRay before the 415 came out but decided to stay w/ the current brand due to the extensive extra spare & options parts I've purchased for my other Tamiya kits (TL01, TB EVO 1 & 2, TRF414M, F201 & TRF415 ... TRF415MSX - still debating???).

Just my 2 cents.

Can you tell us what (if any) tuning options came with the kit ie: different toe blocks, c-hubs, sway bars etc

cheers

The car comes with NO "bridge" suspension block.

B-XB and XD-B running from the front to the rear - no spares / options included.

0 degree aluminium uprights included as are the new tiny turnbuckles for the sway bars. Only a red rear sway bar and yellow front sway bar included. Sway rod stoppers also included.

Evo IV MS suspension shafts that hold on the upright mount and rear uprights (not the screw type of the MS), more like the style of the pro 4 where they are tightened by running a grub screw up from the wishbone. Titanium coated suspension shafts included also.

Shocks are the blue knurled type, with the aluminium adjusters and titanium piston rods.

New aluminium ? blade style diff included.

Flourine coated king-pins and flange tubes included.

I think thats about it.

I'll post pics as soon as I can !

Surprised at the lack of blocks and sway bars I must admit.

Can you tell if the diff screw can be used with the plastic outdrives? Would like to retain the plastic, while being able to adjust the diff externally....

Hmmm....according to Tamiya, adjustment without disassembly should be possible. The halves look a lot like the plastic ones from your pics, so I thought the difference would lie with the screw, and maybe a hole in the outdrive for an allen wrench to pass through.....
