I just got my new MSX and now selling my spare TRF415 with the MS Up-Grade Set(MSX), LW suspension, KO Propo VFS 2000 esc, Futaba S3550 servo, some hop ups and spares if anyone is interested. It's on ebay starting at $350. Picture attatched. Item number: 6017756777


The new MSX is really nice. I only wished it came with the blue screws!

The MSX is very cheap to buy, so its tempting for me also to sell my MSX converted chassis for the Refine 2. That way I would be able to get an Alloy rear diff, new chassis plate with extra bulkhead mount support to the chassis that the converted MSX chassis does not have, amongst other things.

I am sticking with what I have though.

haven't check the shocks, but i think it's smooth cap, same as the other MS

ya i think the significant difference is in the additional stiffener. if i were you i will just buy the optional alloy outdrives and rear hub carrier. that way you would save a lot more hehe. as for me, i didn't have MS kit, so I bought this one , my first TRF kit...

Haha, I've already got the rear alloy, plus the front alloy caster blocks and uprights from Square. My chassis is pretty blinged up.

Default 415

Hey guys,
Just wanted to post this. If anyone is looking for a really clean 415 that's fully loaded to the gills, I would appreciate if you check out my thread in the F/S forums. Hate to sell it but a family issue came up and I really need the money, especially now before the holidays. I will be loosing a ton on this car. It's an incredible deal and it's practically brand new!

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Moderators, if postig this here is against the rules, please delete this post!

Thanks in advance!
Joe

Has anyone run into any trouble with the TAMIYA spool? I never really tried it. It looks weak. I been using the one I got from Speedtechrc.

I don't care much for the Tamiya spool. I have one for my Evo4 and one of the plastic drive cups broke. I have a Speedtech spool on my 415 and it's still going strong. YMMV.

The tamiya ones are very weak...But its very lightweight...I have the 1st speedtech 415 spool...And still running strong...I have the tamiya ones...But dare not try using.I prefer reliability to outright performance...
