New Tamiya air intake feature


Note the bearing for the center shaft, looks like with different spacers you can raise and lower it. I bet its to fit bigger spurs in place when using the white pully's

Its been a while since I've looked at this forum, focusing on nitro on-road. Another Car???? Great...I picke-up the 4mm chassis for 2007 carpet season...I hope the new car does not change to signficantly. Perhaps I should sell one of my 415MSX's

for me, the cool-can-fan seems to be most effective in cooling a motor. Is the idea of the cooling duct to mount the SC on top of it?

Unless the new car has some really cool features and noticable benefits, I'll stick with the 415MSX for a while. Although, most of my enjoyment in this hobby comes from building a brand new chassis...so I'll probably get one.

It cost 63.50 for a new lower chassis plate to be cut and a new top deck cut.

I ordered the whole Evo 5 steering setup from RC champ. I did have to turn the posts down a little and also take some off the shims as well. All very easy stuff though and well worth doing.

Rick,

I think you should put together a kit for us to purchase from you. I think it turned out great.

I doubt we see a whole MR Edition 415, but I believe a conversion set will be sold by December with the Evo steering setup. Stands to reason looking at the release dates for the 414, 415, and 415MSX.
