Talking Improvements on the 415ms that you would like to see on the 416, whenever that may be

It's that time again, Tamiya engineers are back to the ole' drawing board with their CAD designs just in time for next winter.

Things I would like to see

1. better alxe bearings

2. LW suspension are made out of the same material as the stock 415 arm

3. Remove side to side slop on the sway bars brackets

4. Front diff available as a option

I'd love to see an easier way to access the diffs/change diff tension. The front belt tensioner helps a little, but the front belt will still have some twist to it. Other than those two nits, I gotta say I love my 415. Just don't screw up the handling, plllllease. Like when they went to the Evo 3 to the Evo 4 they fixed the wrong problem...the front gear was the problem, not the handling IMHO.

deffiently reduced suspension slop... although baring that the only other thing i can think f is bigger hub bearings. Never really used a diff that much, prefer the one-ways, or even a spool.

Regards
Ed

1. Countersunk upper decks.
2. Countersunk shock towers.
3. Two piece bulkheads for easy diff and belt adjustments.

Other that the 3 suggestions, the car ROCKS and is very STABLE.
