I think you only could get them in Japan. Remember, Tech Racing and Tamiya made the TRF415 series.

Interesting reading regarding the rear toe-in. I might experiment with that this weekend.

For those of you who run spools, can you tell me which one is best?

I'm about to get a few tuning parts and have decided to get a spool - question is which one?

is the Tamiya spool the only one that comes with a spare set of outdrives?

I have used Speedtech spools for other cars in the past and they are awesome. I ordered 2 from Steve when I ordered my car since he had buy one get one free on them. I also just ordered a Tamiya one for the TCS. I am curious though if Tamiya sells spare cups for it or will another manufacture's cups like Titanium Racing's?

I haven't tried any other spool apart from the Tamiya spool as i can't be bothered to order another one . Seems ok just don't hit anything full throttle into a corner . I got my spare Tamiya outdrives for the spool from rc-champ, i think they were about 750YEN .

I have both.I'll prefer the speedtech spool to the tamiya because I want the reliability,as I'm not a very Pro driver,so mistakes bound to happen. Even a friend of mine who is a top driver at the club also prefers speedtech.

But the tamiya spool does give more steering than the steel speedtech one.

Default Best Spool

bender, the best spool you can get has to be the titanium racing one.
It is much stronger than the Tamiya item and very light weight, it's avaliable in two specs.

I'd go for the for competition spec because the outdrives are well chunky and light being delrin. You can get replacement outdrives, the difference being the way they attach is much better design than Tamiya replacements and is a lot cheaper than replacing a worn 1 piece spool.

That one looks good I like the idea of having delrin outdrives too.

Just got to find somewhere to buy them from, UK prices are too expensive for me
