I know Reinhard was surposed to have done it, but wondered if any of you guys had. Seems a more viable route than buying all the parts to convert the std 415 suspension over to the LW stuff due to availability of parts in the UK.

Why not buy the LW conversion kit for the TA05 ? It will fit, only spacers for the wishbones will have to be fitted for the 415, look at setup sheets to see how many.

The LW suspension is the one as used in the 415MS and MSX.

Does anyone know the part no for the diff ring replacement?

I am trying to rebuild the rear diffs on the 415 and I got some stock parts from a TB02 diff but its not as smooth. I already am using new Tamiya Carbide balls so it cant be that

OK guys i need some opinions. I want to do TCS this year. I have an original 415 with the MSX conversion that i have not even run yet. I live in Socal so i can practice at Tamiya to get it dialed in, but after reading the TA-05 thread it sounds like that car may be a little easier to dial in. Which car is easier to tune? i see a few that have both. Alhough GT1 sounds like it may be more fun since it is 19turn now and Tamiya is a little on the bigger size.

The 415 is easy to dial in at the tamiya track. But, it's always fun to get new toys.

Can anyone post a pic of how they mounted their ESC and receiver on a 415?

I have a Novak GTX and a KO310Rf receiver, currently I have the receiver standing at the back of the servo and the ESC close to the motor. I am afarid the heatsinks on the GTX touch the motor mount

Pics would be appreciated

No, I don't think anyone would know except they measured it. That's why Marc Rheimard uses Xray springs.

here you go, i can't get the capacitor down and double-taped to the chassis though. maybe someone out there got a better layout. but this might give you some idea. i managed to snap this pic a few weeks back, now i'm already using VFS-1 , btw mine is KR-302F receiver, not sure how different it is in terms of size with KR-301F...
