Default 3 mm chassis

I have a 415ms and the chassis was drooping in the middle. So I went out and got a new one 3mm part# 4005103. Why dont the screws line up on the arm mounts? I'm holding the new chassis over the old one. If you look closely you can see all but four screws line up. Do I need to get longer hinge pins? And how does this affect rear toe, kickup, and antisquat?

Exclamation MS vs. STD. chassis

The original 415 that used the 3mm chassis came with the standard arm, where as the MS came with the lightweight arms which are narrower so they used shorter hinge pins. You will have to buy the longer hinge pins and add spacers!
I think the changes will be minimual if you space the arms the same as the MS, but with the .5 mm thicker lower chassis you will definitely see a change in the handling!
Just my 2$

Would it be a bad idea to use this 3mm one? I race rubber tire on carpet. Med to high traction.

Thicker is better for carpet!
That's why Tamiya is coming out with a 4mm chassis, just for carpet application!
If you like it with 3mm then maybe try 4mm later on!

I can't imagine that the traction at the TCS race will be super high. A 2.5mm and 3mm chassis should be more then enough at Trackside.

Fred K. ran his MSX and won the Novak race easily without a 4mm.

I really thought the 4mm and Diff would be focused more toward those running carpet/foam.

i think Anthony(Nexus) is correct.... the stiffer chassis is good for foams, thats why its from Tamiya USA instead of Japan... they dont have any concerns about foams, from what i hear.

on rubber tires, the 2.5 or 3 should be fine... with the rubbers you are looking for more bite, rather than trying to take it away from the foamies..

They made a spool, which is also good when running foam tires.
