The tech car proved its self sat with a A-main win in stock on carpet. going to wait till I get outside to try the 19T out in it.
ko.. anytime. both cars are awesome. my R3 is proven right now in stock for parking lot racing. my drivetrain is super free (PM me if you have any secrets you feel like sharing. hehe) so im not gonna mess with a good thing. the 415 is smoother than the R3 tho. but i like both cars equally. maybe at the next parking lot race ill swap it around... ill do the R3 in 19T and 415 in stock and see what happens

The white belt is similar to the blue/white shirts that they wear. Can't touch this.

Hebiki it is the same as the Yok rear hub. It really is just more fine tuning options to get the car handling better.

Inboard vs. Outboard toe--Like Rod commented it works similar but feels different it also relates to the sweep of the arm imagine the whole arm working vertically with the hub only having toe or the whole arm working with the sweep to it the tire does not "see" the same amount of toe during the suspension movement. As its vertical travel will have a touch of forward movement when loaded.

Another trick for those of you running alot of spacing under the front link try running the D block on the front toe location to give some sweep to the front arms. This will give a touch of mid corner steering and change the feel without having to add kick up in front and having off power weight transfer issues.

Rod as soon as the car gets here we plan on running the spool problem through it. I am thinking of a second car just for proto work.

Dan, the D up front is for the Evo3 lol. If I'm not mistaken, the 415's uses something different, I haven't been paying too close attention yet.

Oh yeah, fix your sig...Tamiya TRF isn't that saying "Tamiya Tamiya Racing Factory?" sorry bud, couldn't help it.

It's all the painkillers. I would not be suprised if it works well on the 415 also.

just be careful as to what you write down for the description (package wise). i had a couple items held by customs because they assumed the items were food related. had to provide proof as to the contents within and the costs. i chose EMS as a method of shipping. it took about 3 weeks after before i got my parts.

i'm not here to scare anyone from purchasing overseas, just with all the Flu this Flu that. customs are getting tighter on inspections

just my .02 cents...

Rainbow Ten is very good...
I ship with EMS, as racer does, and it gets here in 5 days max.

R10 also reduce the cost of the item on the customs declaration in order to have it go through customs without you having to pay tax... (This is here in Australia, not sure the case in the US.)
My two TRF415's were over 100000yen, and should have been taxed on arrival, yet they place something like 8000yen on the declaration.....top guys.
