Default Help

Ok I got my car together. Really nice.
But need some general help here.

1. I can't figue out the TA05 conversion, I thought it was just changing the original center pully (with a grub screw) to one with a pin? Does anyone have any pics of this conversion?
2. In the setup sets of Rheinard and Numan, both have 1B,1A blocks on the front suspension arms, but on the rear block I would need a 5mm spacer AND need to "grind" away a small area at the rounded corner for the spacer to fit and then lineup with the front block. Is this normal?
3. The sway bars are very loose. How do I tighten them? Or is loose OK? Do you guys run them on asphault? I left them off for now. Do I need them?
4. Why does M Rheinard always wear that hat? (just kidding)

Thanks for any help.

1. you dont need the center pulleys. they're are the same tooth count as the 415 (this was posted a few pages back).

wow, you got a lot of posts.
sry but I don't understand, do you mean the conversion is for the diff drives?

I SEE NOW, the conversion is to change the internal drive ratio to 2.25 by putting the higher tooth diff pullys (36 vs 35)... I THOUGHT it was to change only the center pully to the pin type because the grub screw could strip out...doh

The conversion is to put the White delrin diff pulleys (TA05) on the 415 diffs the diff pulley for the read is a direct fit, the front one way pulley needs modification, it is to thick, and th hole pattern is a little off.

Thanks,
Does it fit a Tamiya front spool? And what about my question about the front block? Is grinding away at the block normal?

Yes it fits the spool, but again the hole patteren is a little off, I just reem the hole I used to bolt it on the spool.
As for the One way, I used a dremel to thin up the pulley

not if your going to use an A... make it easier and get yourself an A Bridge block (not sure on part number at the moment... I'll find it later). It's a special block with the centre section raised to clear the belt.

I assume that it is a typo in Josh's setup, should be 1XB instead of 1XD
What about droop? does anybody know what the droops were.

Wasn't there also an all white, or all black set of sway bars for the 415?
