I still thinks its worth while running the TA05 pulleys because its a better internal ratio to work with (well for Modified anyway) and I think the TA05 pulleys are better, you don't have to do any gluing and I think they are made from a better material.
does any body know what the ineternal ratio is on an 415ms/msx with the ta05 front and rear diff pulleys and center pully.

I bought some RPM ball ends, but only discovered that the Tamiya ball studs have larger balls once I fitted up a new turnbuckle with new ends....how annoying!

Any ideas? Suggestions from UK users would be most useful, as an order from the likes of Champ etc can be quite expensive once I get going!

Thanks

Andrew

Err they're not as bad as you seem to say i hardly ever have them pop off and only on big crashes.

Cheers, Charles
Xenon makes 0 degree castor blocks for the 415/EvoIV. Xenon also makes better 0 degree rear hubs for the 415/EvoIV suspension as well. I have both. but have yet to try them out since asphalt season has not started yet here.

Lower arms, front uprights, C-Hubs and belts. Those are the only spares I have (maybe also worth getting some spare flange tubing, which goes bottom screw on the front upright).

Default MSX on foams..

Looks like Tamiya had a pretty good day at Carpet Nats.

Jimmy Jacobson BQ'd Mod foam....from listening to the live feed it sounded like R.Burch punted him big time in the first few laps.

Josh Numan also made the B.

Hopefully one of both of them can share their setups.
