I'm running a similar setup in the diff as yours, but with Acer diff balls, but with the Yokomo plates and diff covers. I race outdoors and the diff has not given me any hassles at all.

Maybe "Fnt" meant "front". Maybe they call the left side motor mount front? Is there a picture of it somewhere?

they are metal shielded. generally you do not want this in the wheel but my experience has proven that near indestructiveness of the 415 (and cost control whether it was planned or not. easier and cheaper to replace a steering arm than $10 bearings.) when i hit something the steering arm holds its form and just sheers off the kingpin or strips out the bottom screw lol.

Do you think the TB Evo. 5 could be a typo and they meant the TA05, I don't see a new shaft drive car on the horizon with all the hype and success of the Belt drive cars everyone is usinng now

Judging from this, I don't think it's a typo: http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=58371

Arrow RE: TB EVO V

I did notice that on the "coming soon" section on the Tamiya USA website. After reading the description of the kit, it looks like they are incorporating some features from the 415MSX design (bulkheads, steering assembly & alum diffs) wherein the new steering design could be based from the prototype that the TRF drivers were using @ the TITC races months ago or it could be the actual steering design that comes standard w/ the 415MSX kit. The only new thing I see is the short span rev arms.

Also coming soon as well are the hex slotted ball connectors 5x5mm & 5x8mm similar to the Sqaure one's (STM-11AX). The difference is that the Tamiya ball connectors don't need a nut driver wherein the one by Square you can use hex or nut driver. I believe the one's by Tamiya were the ball connectors the TRF drivers used on their MSX kits steering assembly & upper links to the bulkheads at the TITC races. (see attached picks)

Default Atlas

I use acer ceramic diff balls, and have atlas diff covers to prevent dirt from getting in. I also use ae stealth grease in my diff. I only have rebuilt my diff once since I got my MSX, that's since january. I usually race at least once a week, and have been racing indors and outdoors.
I'm curious about Atlas diff covers. I've looked around and can't find other references to them. Can someone explain how they work and where I can buy them.

Thanks!

Here is my betting the Evo V will have the following new parts:

Pro 4/Cyclone length arms but reversable (marc was seen running a 415 with these arms)
New steering setup ala latest team driver 415 update.

The other part RC TRF415 Fnt Alum Motor Mount Item #53921 i think will be the finned layshaft cover like david was seen running at the last indoor meeting.

I thought that part #53921 was for the 415 front alum diff joints on the Tamiya USA website?
