BTW Does anyone know hwere you can get the Racers Paradise storage box? I know they have on their site but I can't read German. Here is a pic of the one I am asking about.
Thanks. There will be some other pictures but there are not too many left.

These toolbox is sold under the name Polybutler. There are two different sizes. I know at least you could get them at Ebay Germany. I donīt know if you could get them in the USA.

Racers Paradise is just a shop/racetrack who sells them also I think.

If you canīt find the Polybutler on Ebay USA just send me the link to the Racers Paradise shop. I donīt have it. Maybe I could help you. But I fear shipping costs may be very high as itīs a little heavy.

next pictures is showing the prototyp aluminium rear diff made by Jürgen Horn for the 415. Itīs installed in one of the cars but I donīt know whoīs car that was. Itīs not easy to see but if you look close maybe you notice the Corally blades used on the driveshafts.
Will be available in about 2 weeks. Final version will be blue anodized. More on this in the report before.

Hmm what exactly do you mean? Complete rear axle or wheelaxle?

Marc used a stock wheelaxle as used with the 415/414/EVO3. Rear suspension and bone is the new one from the EVO IV. You just have to enlarge the hole on the arm for the 3mm outer suspension pins.
Rear upright is the 1° from Tamiya.

Just looked again at that picture. To be correct he used Titanium wheelaxles but in exactly that length.

Thanks for the pics V12. Great Coverage!

Just a note on the TC3 pic that you posted... but is it me... or does it look like the camber link mounts like a TC4?

Hey V12 can you help with this.
Looking at that pic (rear end of marcs car) it looks like he's running a c block on the rear suspension. To get 2deg of rear toe with the alu hubs, wouldn't he have have to been running a A block as the forward block?

IRCC you said they were running the C/A combination on the front as well? wouldn't this narrow down the overall width of the car?

Hope you can help

Ed

TryHard, remember, they are running he new suspension arms which I are longer. The Evo IV uses A blocks all around except for the very rear block to adjust rear toe. But they also use wheels shims. On my Evo IV.. I run a C block in the rear to get 2° rear toe in...

thats the thing, I am using the new arms on my 415, and running with D and B on the rear (C/A up front). The car isn't over width though, exactly 189mm when I last measured. this is using all the std bits a supplied in the kit (including the 1.5mm wheel spacers).
I wonder if using the alloy hubs means the suspension has to be moved inboard on the rear a little to meet the width?

I just found it odd, as IIRC, making the front narrower (ie C/A blocks) gives the car more steering, which is what V12 said the track needed. I would have thought doing the same to the rear would give less....

just a thought
Ed
