Bumper problem? It's the same bumper from the 414m2 kits. Maybe they molded them wrong? I dunno. I get to race my 415 tomorrow on asphalt. Skipping out on the TCS up in PA due to certain things. I'm gonna try the "every other tooth" deal on the belts for stock class. I'll let yall know what happens...

Default HOLMEN?

The older short springs (rather soft) are part # 53333 these are the brightly colored red, yellow, and blue and are the original short set. Sold in a 6 pack, 1 pair each.

The newer stiffer shorts are sold by the pair. For the red 53630, yellow 53631, blue 53632, white 53633.

Default hi

Some queries abt the 415, how do you hold the battery down on the chassis? Is there anything "locking" mechanism I can use like velco so that I can change the battery easily?

You can use battery strapping tape or if you can find at your hobby shop battery velcro straps for side by side battery configuration.

tape is the best thing to use. they have the really heavy duty tape you can use like the ones sold at speedtechrc.com or you can use 3M strapping tape. velcro is good.. but might scrape at the bottom since its so thick. might affect handling and ride height.

strapping tape is only $1 here and its about 50 yards worth. cheap enough that i change my tape every battery pack.

Out in europe ? Are you kidding ? I don't know where you live but either in UK or France it's NOT out yet. The few drivers using them bought them in Japan.

SoCal Raceway has 4 kits in as of Friday night 4/19, but I have a feeling they'll go fast. They're $409.99 I got mine

Anyway I'm not getting one, and if I was to, I'd get it from japan. But it's well known that the french and UK importer are wankers...

I didn't get to cut off every other tooth though. I passed out last night. So I didn't have time to paint up a new body for the car. I didn't finish up my F201 for TCS (it's still in pieces.) Work has me drained! I even woke up late today. So I didn't get much practice.

But the car ran great in Stock Touring. First qualifier I needed more steering goin in. So I took out the kickup. Next round I needed alittle more goin out. So I shorten the rear link to the middle hole on the Optional rear hubs. That helped me alot. After that the car felt pretty good. Took TQ and the win. Next weekend I'll bring out my Yok and make some comparisons. But so far it's run faster than my Yok did last year. We'll see. Plus I should have a belt clipped by then to test that as well. If I don't sleep too much...

Ohhhh something else... what do you guys call this car? In other words... how do you pronounce it? I'm just curious. I always say it's a Four One Five. But others say it's a Four Fifteen. Just something I've always wondered... Oh and the car was very quiet... nice... I like that...
