Interesting to see all the cut outs on it. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having a thicker chassis?

definately kick ass.... if you look down the centreline and across the side mounts, there isnt any shaving, therefore itll be stiffer. The cutouts are to keep the rest of the components as low as possible, cant wait to get my hands on one. I cant remember, but did Marc R use a 4mm chassis on his msx when he won the IIC this year? I heard he got it specially made by Tamiya, maybe this is the release of that....

I think Tamiya should also release front ball diff and full aluminum spool. This 4mm chassis should make people who run on carpet happy.

This is VERY GOOD NEWS. I was thinking of getting rid of one of my 415's and pick up a FK05 to run foams.... Not anymore

Can anyone tell me the benefit of running the Pro 4 steering hubs instead of the Tamiya hubs?

allows you to fit foam tires, which are wider than rubber tires

It may be obvious - the HPI hubs are only for the LW suspension ... as well, I believe you need to change your wheel bearings as well...

What sucks about the HPI parts is that you have to buy two bags of them since only one front knuckle comes in the package. In one bag you get one front and one rear knuckle - eventially giving you a huge stock-pile of rears

I have a MSX coming from RC-Champ also. I am not very good with oneways, so, I am looking for a center solid pulley for the MSX. Can anyone help post the tamiya part number for it. Or is there an aftermarket one?
Also, read that you can built a front ball diff using yokomo sd/bd outdrives. Is this correct. And what else is needed to built the ball diff besides the 35Tpulley, 3mm diff balls and bearings?
Thanks.

Ray.

When I was running my 415 on foams at IRP you had to use the Pro4 knuckles to fit 28mm foams up front. If you are running the standard 415 you shouldn't have to do this swap. It's only if you use the LW suspension pieces. The HPI pieces take different bearings also if I remeber correctly.

------

a 415 with that new 4mm chassis would be really nice on carpet/foam racing....just add the Pro4 knuckles and a Yokomo/Tamiya diff. Now that Tamiya has made the 4mm chassis maybe they can work on the front diff and knuckles that allow for 28mm foams.
