Thanks in advance for any given info.
The only difference is that I mounted the ESC so the wiring faces out the side of the car.....

Thanks for your input.. The reason I wanted to mount my Quantum2 with wire facing the motor, it would also mean more colling for the headsink as winds will blow through (in between) heatsink.

Actually I have found a way, since I'm using direct servo horn (not the original tamiya servo saver), the turnbuckle link to the steering post assy is not align. Lean backward obviously. So, I will have my workshop made new servo stand to move my S9550 servo further front (should be by 3.5mm I believe), then it will align with steering rack/assy. Fortunately, it would have given me 2.5mm more spaces on the back so that Esc could be mounted like I wish and still more than enough room for the motor.

Default 415 screws

Does anybody have a list of the screw sizes and count for the 415 kit? Thanks.

Sounds like a good idea.
Other thing is I don't run the heatsink as I have placed the big power cap on top of the esc.....

Hi Guys,

We have just 1 or 2 TRF415 left over from the first shipment (a few guys passed up theirs) so those of you interested in the car, now would be the perfect time as the next batch is 2-3 weeks away.

Ask Steve at Speedtech for the screw counts or better yet, look into his Ti screw kit for the 415. It's got em all and best of all it's a bargain

So has anyone been racing theirs? I'm looking forward to some more racing and tuning this weekend. Last night I clipped the belts. So we'll see if that was a mistake or not this Saturday. If not, I'll have to toss on a spare set of belts.

Hi Guys,

Our screw count is according to the screw listing in the manual. Typically Tamiya will list the quantity and the size of the screws in the back of the manual (however, not always accurate) so we check through every single step of the manual and count the screw (and it happens to match the back of the manual this time)

However, if any of you think you are short of screws when purchasing our screw kit, please let me know right away. I will take care of it and also update it for future customers I have a screw kit for myself, so I'll find out this weekend when I build the kit if it is accurate or not.

Thanks again,

Steve Wang

Uh-oh... I have a feeling Steve wants some TCS action this year... hehehe... that's great!... I haven't seen you raced/practiced at Tamiya for months. Time to get that GT1 title back from Ling! Hehehe... (sorry Ling... just had to add that in...LOL j/k)

BTW, Steve, pls keep us updated on the ceramic bearings for Tamiya cars... I have several cars that needs some TLC from months of race abuse... and of course a set for my new 415...

Steve,

Your 415 ti screws package is right on. Actually, mine came with one extra 3x8. Is that means that I have to return it? Nah! I can't wait to put the kit in action this weekend.
