Default 05 Pulley

Do you need the one-way unit from TA05 to use the bigger pulleys on 415 or can you put the pulley right on 415 one-way unit?

Thought Id give you my set-up / results from a long weekend of carpet foam tire racing with an MSX R2. The Carpet Winter Champs in Gaithersburg Maryland brought out all of the top drivers on the east coast, including a number of guys who made the A-Mains at the Snowbirds. For example, Jeff Cuffs was there who won at Snow Birds.

I was really pleased with my overall results. In fact, a lot of guys who mocked me for being the only guy running a 415 R2 were later checking out my ride having out-qualified a lot of them. In summary I qualified less than of a lap or 8-9 sec behind TQ, Jeff Cuffs in both sedan stock & 19T. The competition was so tight; I qualified 8 & 7 in the B for both stock & 19T respectively. Keep in mind I only race electric a few times a year, so this was huge. (I did not run the mains as I had a 5 hour drive home on Sunday night and left early)

My set-up was close to Marc R. Las Vegas Set-up, which I downloaded from the Tamiya site, with the following exceptions:

Stock 2.5mm Chassis 4mm not yet available
Springs 30 lbs front / 25 lbs rear
Blue front sway bar
Droop or Up-travel: 1.5mm front / 3.0mm rear
Rear block: A/C (only because I ran out of D blocks otherwise would have used B/D)
Rear Toe in: 2 degree (used a 1 degree hub)
Front Block: D/D (use a 4mm wheel hex, no spacers)
Track width: 190mm for both (need wheel spacer & 5mm wheel hex in the rear to achieve 190mm width)
All other setting are the same as Marc Rs.

JACO 2-satge 2x Pink Orange Fr / 2x Pink Rears (57mm)
Roll-out 26.5-27.2mm stock
Roll-out 29mm 19T

Biggest benefit: was the chassis braces I used from an old 415 standard kit attached to the front & rear chassis post to stiffen the overall chassis.

Since Im not racing for another 3-weeks, I actually left my chassis with a sponsored driver (name not to be disclosed) to help me work with some fine tuning tips to pick up a few more tenths of a sec. The set-up from Marc and my changes was a great base set-up for me

Lets just say, that I was so pleased with finally getting the 415 R2 to work, that I plan on running a few electric rubber tire races this summer. I had had nothing but problems a few pages back with my older 415 with standard arms. Im glad I decided to listen to Steven Sohl and hold onto the R2.

No you do not need to have the 1-way. The hole pattern diameter is a touch larger on the 05 pulley. To fix this take a body reamer and enlarge the holes to allow room for the screw to fit. If you keep steady pressure you should still retain the center of the original bore and allow the pulley to remain centered.

Congrats, Carl. I do believe the MSX R2 will be an outstanding carpet foam car once you get the setup correct. And that is an awesome setup.

I did go back to the A blocks and 5mm hexes in the front though...my track width with the D blocks and 4mm hexes was 193+mm (no shims) ???. Now it's around 189-190mm. We'll see.

Yes the track width was too wide in the front with the D/D combo and Parma tires. So, I switched to JACO like Marc R used and it was right on 190mm. It fit through the 190mm tech box at the last race, although a little snug. I fugured if Marc used so can I.

Ive tried fitting a 415 one-way unit with the 05 one-way pulley on it and its a no-go. The unit wont go into the bulkheads, its too wide. I guess that the pulley is wider. No problem with any spool though.

Might take a bit of persuasion but it will fit. I ran the car in both versions last weekend. With the 1-way the pulley is about .5mm thicker than the std 415 pulley. It is almost an interferance fit but not quite. I loosened all the bulkheads along with the front shock tower and re-assembled all the parts if you have access to a machinest you could ask them to kiss the 1-way to relieve a bit of material.

If you have a look at a picture of marc's car from the TITC that's been around, you can see his TA05 pulley is fixed from the other side of the one way...

He used a spool, not a one-way...

oh yeah you're right, my bad i constantly forget that they have that stupid design for the one way, i keep on wishing they'd made the same one as the racing one way for the TA04
