What I don't understand is why are they using the TA05 center pulleys and spurgear adaptor? What's the advantage? The pulley's are the same size so you can use the stock 415 layshaft pulleys with the TA05 diff pulleys.

Was his car the same as Marc's car at the TITC?
Nope he has LTW rear arms on his car. Just with the little moulded balls for the roll bars cut off. Look real close you can just about see.

Looking for Spur/Pinion, Tires,Springs, Shock Oil, and Motor for mod info. Also is there anywhere else I need to look at racing? I grew up in southern Cal but haven't lived there since '94. Thanks.

Tires = Sorex 36R's with yokomo super thins(these should work well at So.cal and tamiya tracks)
Springs = yellow of coarse!!
oil = 40-50wt.
Spur/pinion = any combo that will put you in the 6.0-7.5 final ratio range(Tamiya large track/ sweeping turn--So.Cal Med./ tight turns)
Mod motor = V-2
Stock motor = Monster or Cobalt27

Starter going through 415 last night and realized the only thing really left from the original car is the chassis and the bearings for the outdrives! Anyway the wheel bearings are pretty bad already as far as grittyness and slop go. Does anybody make a bearing that is a higher tolerance or something. The smaller bearings for the ltw suspension just did not hold up very well. Also what is final verdict on the ta05 pulleys. Will they bolt right on with the 415 center shaft or do i nedd some unobtaium to make it work!

Nope, TA05 diff pulleys are 36T as opposed to the 415's 35T, pulleys are 17T as opposed to 415's 16T. So you need longer belts, the stock belts won't fit.

Nope 16t so stock 415 should fit just have to run the belt a little looser than stock.

Bottom line is you should be able to use the TA05 diff pulleys with everything else stock (from the looks and mathmatically). I just don't get the advantage of using the center hardware from the TA05. Only reason would be easier access to the spurgear and the only thing it would be changeing would be the FDR.

Agreed, if the centre pulley was bigger there would be an advantage of having less wrap, but a slightly bigger diff pulley only has an advantage of allowing lower gear ratios for low wind mods.

Maybe that is the only reason they are running them. I wonder if the diff pulleys are dyeable.

don't know, i run bigger centre pulleys but i'm not fussed about gearing for low winds since i mainly run 19T indoors and outdoors i don't think i'll go lower than 8T. When running indoors with 8T as the top drivers do here, they sometimes have to go to 9.5 or something that stupid.

I'm gonna take a stab that the TA05 center pulleys are lighter then the 415 Al. ones. I'm also going to guess that the plastic TA05 center pulleys "bite" less into the belts then the Al. ones do. Though I could be wrong.
