you'll find that tamiya's 48 pitch gears do not mesh perfectly with regular 48 pitch gears (close, but not exact).

on a similar note, their new chassis is called the 415MS Refine 2, OTHERWISE known as the 415MSX, but it would be misleading to be called the msx refine 2.
Sorry, but just because the teeth are close to the same size, does not make one "the metric version of the other" and vice versa.

That's like saying an M3 screw is the metric version of a 4/40 screw

Thinking of getting a new chassis. definitely TAMIYA! can't decide whether to go with a TA05 (brand new) or a 415. How do you guys feel you fair against 415s? Personally if it's not such a big difference, i'm leaning more towards the 05. Any comments?

05 is a great car and i believe 415ms/msx is also a great car, just that i am still trying to find a better setup to run at my local track.

but some facts regarding the two in my own, personal opinion:
you will spend a lot upgrading the 05 (well at least i do). i think my TA05 costs almost the same as my MSX now. so if you can wait, you might want to wait for TA05R or whatever the name is, not sure when will it come out but looking at tamiya's style with the previous TA-series, I'm quite sure we'll see this one.

weight difference between my TA05 and my MSX is approx 150g-200g

bearings. the only part that's with a bushing is the steering assembly. so, it just lacks 2 bearings.

yup, but if you're going to get the alum steering assembly then you do not need to buy the bearings as the hop up comes with it.

Default Tamiya R/C 540 Motor

Just setting up my TA-05 and when i went to plug the ESC into the motor the instructions said the colour of the wires are Red/Orange and Black/Blue but the one ive got is Green and Yellow.

I need to know which is the positive and which is the negative. Anyone know which one is which or where i could find out?

Thanks

Yellow is positive, green is negative.

If in doubt, look at the back of the endbell where the motor wires are soldered, the positive side is usually indicated by a little red paint dot near the solder tab.
