Hmmmmmm, sounds like an interesting modification. So we would need TA05 Diff Pulley and One Way Pulleys (Derlin) as well as a TA05 Direct Center Pulley? I take it that there is also a TA05 Center Oneway pulley and regular TA05 pulley if you wanted to run a center oneway.

Anyone know what they leaves your Internal Ratio at??

Also, any reasons why you see the ballcups on both Rheinard and Maezumi's cars trimmed at the top so that the ball connector is visible??

Maybe they would want to screw out the ball ends without poping out the ball cups?? Or maybe less contact on the balls and cups,thus less friction,faster steering action??

Hey Alonso,

Besides that change u will also need the following to change the drive train:

1) a different lay shaft. However the centre pulley is the same as the 05 so u do not really have to change it to achieve the ratio

2) a longer rear and front belt.

3) The front one way pulley is a bit fatter than the original so if u are using it as a direct swap it would not fit in-between the bulk heads. Have not tried the rear yet so i cannot tell u about that.

Cheers

The only issue I have with the plastic centre pulleys, coming from my TA04 days, was they wore down fairly quickly, requiring replacement at least once a season. Whereas it takes longer for the aluminium ones to wear. I guess it would be the case of YMMV.

I don't think you'd need new belts. I would have thought there's enough adjustment in the diff bearing holders to account for the minor size difference.

Default where is a good online parts supplier for the 415mxs2

I currently run a RDX but I REALLY like the look of the 415mxs2. I am stuck in the middle of nowhere OKLAHOMA until June then I am heading to the San Diego area. Does anyone know where I can get online support for this car? Who has the best prices? What shops in southern Cali support this car? Thanks in advance.......

Good pics on there... Anybody else notice the cyclones apear to have MSX diffs.... hmm

BTW, anyone got a clue on whats going on with Surikarns brush wiring in this pic? Can't figure it out meself, looks like its got extended copper shunts

http://sudacolumn.cocolog-nifty.com/...s/P1040471.JPG

BTW, deffiently looks like Satoshi was using HPI rear hubs... check them against the rear hubs on one of the cyclones

Be intregued (sp?) to know what roll bars Marc R was running though, they are not std Tamiya ones... the rear arm mounting positons are really far out on the arm... similar on the front.
Cheers

From what i have been hearing they only extended the copper shunts to try and stop it from unsoldering its self (but i could be wrong )

I'm not very good at the whole state 'thingy' in the USA but to me Speedtechrc are extremely good (takes less than a week to get from them to me in the UK) or rc-champ.co.jp

Why aren't they running Spektrum? Is there a ban against it in International competitions?
