What hobby shops carry Tamiya 415 msx refinr 2 parts in Souther California? I will be there on business in the coming week and I would like to pick up some parts as Speedtech is out of the parts I need.

Thx
Go Directly to Tamiya if you want, they are in Aliso Viejo (Orange County) And while you are there admire the track.

Post TA05 Alum Transponder Holder

Quick question.

Would the TA05 alum transponder holder fit on the 415?

Thanks.

The only other shops that would carry any 415 parts are Ultimate Hobbies in Orange and So Cal Raceway in Huntington Beach. However, check with Steve to see if he has a shipment coming in just before you arrive.

I don't know, but I used to use a RC Square 415 Transponder holder/servo stay. You can find them at Rainbow Ten or Speedtech RC.

set-up question

Evening all,
Got a question for you on setup. Had first outdoor race yesterday, and had a few issues with the car. Was fast as anything else there (which I was quite pleased with), but I did seem to suffer with a lack of rear end grip, would have the tendacy to almost snap round on the entrance to the corner. Other times it would just loose all rear end grip for about a lap, however I think that was more to do with the intermitant rain....
my setup was:

Front:
LW suspension, mounted on 3rd hole
3rd hole on shock towers
B-C blocks
4mm hex's
60wt oil, 3 hole pistons
yellow springs
-1 deg camber
4 deg hubs
ride height 5.5mm
droop 5mm

Rear:
LW suspension, 3rd hole
3rd hole on tower
X-B blocks
1 deg hubs
middle hub hole
5mm hex
60wt, 3 hole shocks
yellow springs
-1 deg camber
droop 4mm

Other:
std MSX role centre and inner stud position
Peak DS 8x1
Mazda 6 body with std wing
3mm chassis

I was thinging that a change to X-C block (2.5 deg rear toe) would do a good move, aswell as maybe lengthening the wheel base, but don't know if thats the way to go?

Cheers
Dan Chambers

Missed that part, lol.
B on rear front (flipped with spacers)
C on front front

X on front rear
B on rear rear

Previosuly ran A-B on front with 5mm hexs, but I found the 46mm bones were too long, so made the switch to B-C with 4mm hexs to try and keep the track the same.
Used locked centre pulley and spool aswell.

Cheers
Dan Chambers
