Default 415 Tamiya/Yokomo Front Diff

Here's what I put together awhile back but took the website down...

Parts Needed:
Yokomo ZS-501 Diff Halves or ZS-502S for steel outdrives
Yokomo ZS-506 Diff Rings or Tamiya 50880 TA04 Ball Diff Plate Set
Yokomo ZS-507 Thrust Balls and Washers
Yokomo ZS-508 Diff Screw and Locknut
Yokomo ZC-S100 10.0mm spacer shim set
Tamiya 51055 TRF415 Ball Diff Pulley
Tamiya 53379 3mm Lightweight Diff Balls
2qty Tamiya 53030 Ball Bearings
2qty Tamiya 53126 Ball Bearings

I'll have the actual website up and running again soon. Some people on this thread might remember I had parts and pics of everything needed and almost step by step on how to put the diff together.

Hi Steve,

RC Alum Diff Joint Set - TRF415
Item #53889 (COMING SOON)

High precision aluminum parts allow diff adjustment without removing joint from chassis, and are easy to perform maintenance on.
*Compatible chassis: TRF415, TRF415MS, Chassis with Item 49378 TRF415MS Up-Grade Parts Set, TRF415MSX


I'm not sure exactly what this comes with it.

No, the outter hinge pins are different diameter. You'd have to use the Pro4 suspension arm if you wanted to use the castor blocks. The inner hinge pin for both the Pro4 and 415 is 3mm diameter....

The Tamiya website has the Dave Jun set-up. It's a good baseline for the MSX!
There will be a couple of them. One of them is for the MSX! I think it is! You can fine tune from there!
It will work at the Tamiya Track!
Use RP-30's, Takeoff -27's or Sorex 32's. All these tires work well at Tamiya!!!

Thanks. How do the RP's work. I have never run anything but Take offs out there. As far as the conversion goes i would try Steve at Speedtech first. Ultimate had them last time i was there but that was quite a while ago.

RP's work good once they warm up! If the weather is too warm the Take-offs might overheat and make the car a little slippery towards the end of a run!
Still, both are very similar!
