The teeth on the pully are lined up just fine but i can't even get the pully in the gear notches because the belt won't allow me to do that. what do i do next?

ok I finally got the TA05 pully in the frotn gear box. but the problem is that when i try to tighten up the top half it's wobbling all over the place and i can't seem to get it to fit. Any suggestions?

few questions....
have you removed any material from the one-way pulley to get the thing to fit? The pulley is wider in the centre than the 415 one (it's been mentioned on here before), so needs a little material removed, or take a little off one of the bearing holder.

For getting the pulley in, if the belt is new, you need to run the tensioners really quite loose (about 1 click off max loose) to get correct tension, due to the pulley being 1 tooth larger.

For getting the bulkheads in... not sure why it's doing that Maybe you want to try and remove some material from the bearing holder..

it's not the bulk heads (lower part) it's the top part where the shock tower and the top part connect with the lower bulk heads. When i try to screw in the top part it tips to one side and then when i take the crews out to try it again i try to srew in the other side it tips to the other side. i'm not using the right words to discribe this but. i can't screw on the top bulkhead that connects with the lower bulk head with the one waypuley inside. i gt the pulley to fit inside the bulkhead but it's screwing it in that's giving me problems. What can i do?

well looks like a shocking turn of events has occured.

I acataully got the bulk heads on the front to work after loosing up the shock tower and i got it to fit just right i put the diff in and that worked as well.

Thank you for everything but i'm not done yet i still have a few questions to ask you.

What are some good aftermarket hop up options that i can put on my 415 that reduces weight? waht type of aftermarket parts can i buy that will enhance the cornering speed of the car and make it more snappy through the infield

in other words. what are the best aftermarket upgrade parts for the Tamiya 415MSX? any suggestions?

The best and cheapest part you can get for the MSX to make it lighter and more responsive is a Protoform Mazda 6 Light Weight bodyshell

Yes it fits both the 415 and 415MS but not the MSX
