Cool, no rush

I was just thinking, why is there very little support from the Tamiya team. I've noticed that setups from the Losi, Xray, HPI, & Schumacher pro's are very easy to get from the net, but it is almost impossible to find a Reinhard or Spashatt or Howart setup?

Or am I just not looking in the right places

ANy help on how big a circle to have and f its smaller than 5.5'-how do I make my car have a smaller circle and still be TCS legal?

Thanks all,

It sounds like the steering plate is on backwards! Dumb question I know but I had to ask!

Hey Ray, where are the steering turnbuckles located on the hubs ? You want them on the forward hole. The plate should have the holes leaning towards the back compared to the bearings holes and yes, the screws do hit the steering. What I did to prevent that is simply countersunk my rack (that's how it was on the very first 414 anyway).

Y parts are the blades, which includes the new diff nut retainer for the alloy outdrives.

My LHS has a 415 MSX in, I was looking at it and it looks high quality and the price on the parts is right. Is it all that much better than the TC3 I have right now, I love my TC3 and its hooked up, does the 415 have a huge advantage over it?

Of course the TRF415MSX is better than TC3. Once you drive a belt driven car, you will prefer this drivetrain after because it is so much easier to drive. Also, it is much quieter than your TC3 for sure.

My son has a trf 415 with the DJ suspension upgrade and he loves it. Next to Xray the build and quality of a tamiya is outstanding. We raced TC3 for years and he swears this is the best car he's had to date. Drive train is smother and the car is more durable than a TC3. Like you know Broken arms and tweaked chassis are common place on that car. Shaft drive cars tend to accelerate harder off the corners but then loose their punch where a belt drive car is more progressive. If you can afford it it's the way to go.

Have you gone to the tamiya usa site. There are some set ups there. Hope that helps.

My first question would be... what is your racing surface? Foams/carpet? Rubber/carpet? Asphalt?

Square HPI Pro4 spindles. Just go to SpeedtechRC.com and look under Square HPI parts. You'll find the part number there. These are the ones I use to clear Jaco foams. If you use Parma foams, then you can use the stock/kit spindles/setup. But you will need to use the silver 6mm wheel hexes with the red 1mm axle shim. I have this setup on my EvoIV, but with Square aluminum EvoIV spindles.
