Yeah, they are really good. They speak English too if you call them. Never made a mistake in my orders (I've bought a lot of stuff from them).

Default Front Diff and Fixed Cener Pully

Well I heard from Tamiya Japan that they currently don't have any plans to make a front diff or fixed center pully for the 415.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was able to use the HPI pro2 female outdrives to make a front diff. You will need to move the ridge that holds the bearing in place closer to the pully by about 3.75mm on both sides.

A buddy of mine has been able to make a center pully from the TA04 fixed double center pully. It is too wide but, by shaving some material you can make it fit. You will need to make the actual pully's more narrow along with some other work. I will try it likely on Sunday to see how it works. It is a 15 tooth pully versus the 16 tooth pully that comes with the 415, so the gearing changes slightly. We still need to verify if the grove spacing and height on the TA04 pully will match the belts for the 415.

I hope this helps those foam tire carpet types....

In case you are interested, attached is the Champs setting used for the recent TITC.

PS: Bottom memo is: He do not use original configuration for rear toe block.. so just refer to the rear mount.

I do not know how it handle as I still have no time building the kit.
