It'd surprise me I think, especially as Surikarn seems to go better with the belt cars. Remember, he won the WC with the 414 and he was winning heaps when running the 415. He didn't win the Worlds when running Evo4.

Kilruf - this is true. I actually rate his drive at the 2004 Worlds very highly, esp as the car had barely been used and was heating up the tyres more then the others. However, he does seem to have dropped since his TRF days.

I always thought that if they made the TA05 a TRF car it would be preaty good being mid motor and all. Or if tamyia made a carbon chassie for it

I have got to say, I am impressed by the looks of that Kyosho car. Very nice indeed. But lets not have RED take over a BLUE thread.

Hey guys, I just acquired a 415 MSX and I'm looking for a front spool. Anyone have one they would like to sell or can point me in the right direction for one?

What's the largest spur that can safely fit the MSX?

I did a search and found that 112t will fit on the older TRF415 std. I tried that on the msx and spur gear protruded under the chassis.

I wouldn't go over 106.

depends indoors, outdoors, and what motor it is. Indoors a ratio of 6 would be suitable for a reedy but not for any other.

About rumors, I'm pretty sure Tamiya won't let Rheinard go before the worlds so that's nothing to worry about.

So Rheinard and Hara will be on the same Hot Bodies team, wow. You know I've often wondered how much much they pay these top drivers. I mean are they under contract, salaried, are paid by each race? And I wish some of the factory top racers would be required to tour just our local tracks and race with us local hacks, now that would be fun to see.
