I will try to find my list of part numbers but you can go to toykohobbies.com and send them an email. Thats where I get all my MY02 parts from. They have been real good as I don't know all of the numbers for the stuff I need.

Its what the 415 is based on. Need I say more. I have the 2002 car and the geometry on that and the 415 are identical. If you look at the new MY02/M which was released before the 415 you will notice that the cars are twins except for the bulkheads.

I just put one together and I'm NOT impressed.. I hope the 415 is built better.Do you have to run the kit rims or did I miss something,I know Yokomo rims fit but none of my other rims fit.In the instructions I have It looked like the top plate fits on the front and rear bulkheads with no spacers or shims,the belt hits(rubs) on the top plate.. I can only hope it runs better than it went together.

I have an old MY02 and a new 415. I was supposed to get the MY02M but ran out of stock so I opted to just get the 415. As Adam stated in his post the 415 and MYo2M are identical. I love both cars but the 415 has better acceleration, I guess it's stiffer that's why.

iam really sorry to hear that.
The TRF 415 is excellent build as with all tamiya's
ive never built a full tech car i.e MY02 but ive built the 415 which is slightly different looking at pics of the MY02.
i dont know what top plate your talking about but on the TRF415 the belts do 'rest' on the middle stiffening plate and on the bottom deck but when drive is applied they 'lift' off and they dont rub on anything.
they only rest on this because the belts are tensioned so loosly but they dont slip.

The MY02 is the same way. I am still waiting for my new MY02/M to show up so I can see if it is any better than the one I have. It should be though.

i dont know.
i cant find any pics.
i think on the MY02 the bulkheads are further apart compared to the TRF 415.
theres a mod in the 415 thread that iam gonna try.
