Do tamiya produce that one?

2.5mm is the thinnest they go to if your racing carpet you need to use a thick chassis to reduce flex and grip.
If you want a thinner deck made up try www.fibre-lyte.co.uk they have the cad file for the chassis just specify the thickness you want.

They represent the evolution of the platform - the 415 being the original / beginning. The "MS" and "MSX" were upgrades and eventual kits. The MSX Refine 2 being the most recent. The guys here will be able to clean this up, If, I'm off a little.

415 was the first one that came out, subsequently tamiya released 415ms which includes certain upgrades like reversible susp. arm, 2.5mm chassis, etc.
after that, they came out with another conversion kit to make it 415msx. Those who buy the conversion kit and upgrade their 415ms might refer to it as '415ms converted to 415msx' and of course the conversion kit will also fit the standard 415 and hence '415 converted to 415msx'

hope that explains.

so '415ms converted to 415msx' is the closest version to 415msx refine 2, they just short of 1 center post attached to the rear bulkhead.

Just sent my 415 MSX chassis and top deck off to fibre-lyte for them to cut me a new chassis and top deck for the evo v steering setup. They are also going to make a cad drawing of the top deck and add the hole for the center brace on the MSX.

Hi,

I know that some of the Tamiya guys used parts of the Yokomo to make a front diff.
The new aluminium diff from Tamiya looks just awesome... To be honest... I want one... Can anyone tell me whether it has the same measurings as the Yokomo diff?

Thanks
Cheers
Chris

Thanks for all of the help guys! I got a few more question if you don't mind:
1. why does eveyone use yokomo front diffs?
2. what if the FDR on this car? i don't know the Internal ratio
3. what is a typical gearing on this car for 19t motors?

I am going out to run it this weekend and am really getting excited. Got to go buy myself a Mazda 6 shell
