80 is about the biggest you can put. I still recommend 64DP for a better precision in your ratios.

BTW - rumor has it Tamiya America will be releasing a 4mm lower chassis for the 415MSX in the near future. Carpet lovers rejoice.

well, if yo are trying to convert the LW to std, you will need the different wheel axles, as they are different, along with new bearings... the LW uses 5x9, where the std used 5x11, i think...

Lightweight bearings are 950 (9x5mm) and I believe the std ones are 1050 (10x5mm) but a confirmation from someone who has them would be better.

Wow, it seems like it's more expensive to put the old suspension on an MS rather than a Lightweight reversible on a standard 415??

Default build tips

I have ordered a 415 refine 2 kit i could do with some build tips for this car.
Do I need to round the chassis edges and glue them and file the battery slots?
Is it advisable to drill the shock pistons out to 1.2 mm to reduce pack.
Do I need to get ceramic balls for the rear diff i have been told the old one wears fast.
Is the kit setup a good starting point for rubber tyres at D V?
Any tip would be helpful for me to know Plus i really don't want to trawl through 219 pages to find out this info !! I hate the search engine:P
