Tamiya Low Friction 5mm turnbuckle ends #53601. You can pretty much buy them anywhere. Try your LHS first.

You can try precisionrc.com

gentlemen,

can somebody span the bulkheads on one of your 415's in an effort to give the spacing from the inside faces?

also, can anyone confirm that the new aluminum diff halves for the msx will be used on the evo-5?

thanks,

...just about 22mm inside face to face. About the diff halves, I have no clue.

Very doubtfull, unless the rear bulkheads are spaced different. The Evo4 ones dont fit for sure, so I would pretty much assume that the Evo5 ones wont either (bulkheads should be closer together, given the layout of a shaft car).
Then again, I could be wrong...

I am in the process of buying a Tamiya 415-MS and was wondering (probably answered somewhere in this thread but there are just soooooo many pages to skim through) what parts I would need to upgrade it to an MSX? I know there is a kit but I heard it's impossible to find one? So my question is, is there a list of HOP UPs that can be added to make the MS spec an MSX?

I just bought a MSX. I think the instructions say to drill out the arms where the hinge pins go with a 3mm drill bit. Is this correct. Is it necessary. The feel loose enough.

The primary difference is the front and rear bulkheads, and the upper graphite deck, they are completely different from the the MS. I am not sure if you can use the MS shock towers or steering bridge, at first glance I think you might, but i'm not sure. You can find the parts listed under Tamiya's website for the seperate part numbers. I converted my MS when the conversion kit first came out last year, and I couldn't be happier with the result. If you liked the MS you will love the MSX. Good Luck

As long as they are free moving when assembled, you will not need to drill them out.

Guys,
Can I use a second direct drive center pulley (part #51060), instead of the center one-way pulley(part #51061)? I'm trying to lock up the drive train. I already have the spool for the front.
