Thanks in advance.
A huge supply or arms, uprights and C-hubs, spare front and rear belts, and the flange tubs to go on the kingpin screws for the uprights are highly recommended. I brought some extra toe blocks for my MSX, but never really used them. In regards to other 415 hop ups, I don't think I have really brought any, since the MSX is good to go.

www.speedtechrc.com are probably the best for Tamiya stuff in the US.

I just bought a 415MS and the guy I bought it from had some countersunk holes drilled under the chassis and a schumacher mission or mi2 battery bar and posts will fit it. $29.00 AUD from the local hobby shop, problem solved. Only problem is I have purple battery posts OH well.

See pic.....The battery posts in the picture where the previous owners, he went through the trouble of anodizing them I will just leave them.

You can't get it yet...... it's a prototype the teamdrivers are testing.
You will need a new chassis and top plate to make it fit so I assume it will be a conversion kit or a new car later this year.

I have been told it will not make much difference to the handling, but you can make ackerman changes real easy, very nice when you move the front arms fwd/rwd so you can maintain the same ackerman setting

These posts are actually the Aluminium Body Posts for a Tamiya F201. Pretty cool idea actually. He uses them on his MSX now. With the Schumacher brace, you may need to mill it slightly so that it doesn't rub on the cells as they are quite fat posts from memory and I think I remember seeing others who have had to do that.

When I saw Dave yesterday he told me they were Schumacher ones , cause we were at Metro I bought a brace from there, hopefully it will fit without having to do any milling, I ain't too good with that sort of stuff.

The brace is Schumacher, the posts are Tamiya F201 Alloy body mounts.

What I use is actually an XRay FK04 battery strap and it works great, never had a pack come out of the car. Having said that, I have now resorted to using tape, which in some ways is more of a pain in the ass, but maybe i gives me half a tenth!
