Thanks!
Saw the numbers in the manual too.
Nice if they could be made of titan instead of steel.

It's more expensive but I still think the Jurgen diff for the 415 out of Germany is the best choice at the moment.....

How much was that again? The Jurgen diff? The Yokomo diff is just much more accessible to me. And would last all winter season. But if price was right... Jurgen diff might be an option....

Hey,

Hope someone help me...

I don't like stock turnbuckle set of TB Evo 4 (black steel).

I like to convert it to blue Alum turnbuckle set. Problem is how i know to buy size of turnbuckle cos there only blue is:

3x18mm
3x23mm
3x32mm
3x35mm

TB Evolution 4 had:

3x42mm
3x28mm

Anyone can help me?
Use the 32 in place of 28. You can use the 35 in place of the 42 or you can get titanium 42mm from tamiya (same as evo3)

No offense but Alluminum turnbuckles? I didn't think they were a good idea when the 415 came out and I still don't

Check out some TC3 Ti-turnbuckles....They may have the right lengths and they are blue!

My buddy gave me the same grief when I ordered aluminum turnbuckles for my Evo4. I ordered some TECH racing turnbuckles for the Evo4, the sizes I used were the 3x32 and 3x42. If the actual turnbuckle is too long, you can cut the ballcup or cut the turnbuckle with a Dremel.

My 415 currently has Aluminum turnbuckles and screws (Knocking on wood), and I haven't had any problems. Yes, Steel and Titanium are stronger, and Titanium is lighter but, BLUE is such a nice color!!!

Bro, You don't have to use a dremel to shorten those alluminum turnbuckles....Just pile into a wall and SSNNNAAPPP...Shortens it plenty
