No, they don't seem to wear out at all. Could be a glitch in ordering them. Where have you checked that they are out of stock?

This is a very good fix. While you are at it to help strengthen the plate, CA the inside holes where the ball studs mount and also CA the edges all around the outside of the plate. This does strenghten the plate. I have seen a few break where the ball studs mount.

A tip I've got for the gears.

Take a hobby knife and a bottle of CA glue. But a ring of CA around the thin gap between the gear and the shield that keeps the belt from coming off. The gap is on the outside, opposite of the side that touches the belt.

Then take the knife and run it along the line of CA to remove excess.

This should keep the shield from coming off and your gear will last longer.

Like they said CA the stering plate at the holes and arounf the edges, And then get yourself a servo saver for your servo. This will help prevent the steering plate form breaking. Slop is not really a problem.

hi guys, sorry to interrupt your Yokomo thread, a tamiya 415 driver here. looking at getting the BD battery tray. instead of using tape all the time on my 415

i need the posts and the plate, i a bit confused with the part number as i don't have the manual. what part do i need

BD-118G MR-4TC BD GRAPHITE BATTERY PLATE
BD-118M MR-4TC BD ALUMINUM SPECIAL BATTERY POST
BD-118T MR-4TC BD BATTERY TRAY

also does the strap work good? coz i see it is held only by body clips and not a screw down one. is there issues with it? is it adjustable?

any help appreciated

thanks

I never had issues with the strap, but lately i've gone to taping in the cells though simply to keep out as much tweak as possible.

As long as you use the foam on the battery plate, the battery (3700 and 3800) will be tight and secure.

I've tried looking for them. RainbowTen carries Team Bomber, but not the belts. I can't find them anywhere except Speedtech. I think they will be getting them in the next few weeks.
