Hey guys I've just got my hands on a TRX 415 MXS. Now I've raced with a TA04S tub chassis...and a XXX-S G+. Now I have the XXX main Chassis set-up book. I'm trying to get a good place to go to get info on how I need to set this car up for carpet rubber. Also, I'm looking for insite for how good this car is on asphalt?
Thanks again for all the help.

The 415 is very smooth and awesome on asphalt. As for rubber tire carpet setups, just do a search in this thread (upper right corner) for "vegas" and or Martin. He has his setup from Vegas posted up for 19t and Mod.

Martin Crisp, the author of the XXX-Main Chassis Setup book also run the TRF415MSX. Sometimes he comes onto this forum and post some setups.

Thanks for the response. I'm currently re-building another std 415 from spare parts I've collected when the 415 came out. I eventually upgraded my 415 to MSX specs (lt wt arms, 46mm drive shafts, MSX conv kit & just ordered the MSX bottom deck from RC Model & 46mm titanium susp shafts but still waiting if they will sell the alum ctr post for the rear bulkhead that extends down to the bottom deck).

Most likely when my re-building is complete, will have to figure out what to do w/ my fully hopped up TRF414M.

Finding Marc's setups is not an easy task. I have heard that the reason you never see his setups is because he never records anything or puts anything to paper.

A few pages back there was a link to his setup that he used in Japan. Rubbers/asphalt/Cold conditions.

This is the only Rheinard setup for asphalt that I have seen. I haven't tried it, I like my setups to much.... Ha..... I will try it sooner or later tho.

Hi Guys,

I've just bought the LE white colour spring set.Was condering do they have a slight difference in sping tension due to extra powder coating??

If they have extra powder coating, then Yes, the tension will be different. I removed the power coating from some Tamiya yellow springs a few months back, then I ran them back to back with new Tamiya yellow springs (with coating) and there was a slight difference. It does soften them up a fraction.
