Just a heads up for anyone wanting to replace a diff pulley. Apparently so many 415 drivers have converted their pullies to TA05 pullies, that North America is pretty much out of them!

Funny how that oh-so-perfect 415 needs parts from the lowly TA05.

Those 415 owners should leave our parts alone.

Screw that concept... I'm gonna toss on the TechRacing 18t pulley on my 415 and keep my stock 35 pulley get an even lower ratio... 1.94444! Hmmm or... I could convert my TA05 pulleys on my TA05 to 415 pulleys!!!

Ever so slightly free'r/smoother. But hard to tell til I actually get to race it on asphalt and break in the belts. Right now I have them semi tight. But it still spins free by hand with spool up front... I did run the car on carpet/foam this past weekend to break them in alittle bit. The new carbon tub chassis does feel pretty good and stiff enough for stock. At least better than the plastic tub.

Anyways, I'll run it head to head against my 415 next weekend. See what I come up with. I'll run similar setups as well (springs/suspension blocks/motor/gearing/shim setting/etc..).

Have you tried with stock belt ? 'Cause I'm going to use those blue aramid tamiya option belt.

I also see from the pict, you are using the blue alum susp mount.
May I know what you're using front and rear ?
I probably want to order some of them also but I confuse which ones should I choose ... 'cause I'm not gonna get all those alum susp.
About these 415 alum suspensions, are those the same as the ones from TB Evo IV ?

Hai Jam-ehz,

Is this front susp. block is 0 degree (p/n TAM53685 front bridge susp. mount A) ?
I think I need 2 pcs of this type because seing the man. instruction for TA05 the belt (fr/rr) should go under the suspension block while 415 only fr.

Please inform me ... thx.

You can't use the stock or blue belts with this conversion. They would be too tight or short. That's why TechRacing included the white low friction belts.

Also, my suspension blocks are 415 blocks. EvoIV (original) are different. They sit 1mm higher. It was mentioned several months back about this. But all the blocks labeled.. "1X"... or "1C" etc.... are 1mm lower than the "X" or "C" blocks etc... Notice the "1" infront of the letter. I use 1A/1A"bridge" up front with 1A"bridge"/1C rear with 1degree rear hubs. But you'll find most setups with LW suspension with 1XC and/or 1XB as the inner suspension blocks for front and rear. I'm moving away from this for this year. Same with my 415.. 1A/1A"brige" front and 1A/1E rear (with 0degree rear hubs). This is typically my spool setup for stock/19t. Maybe alittle antisquat in the rear 1 or 2mm.

OK .. thanks for the info.
How about the 53712 - 53717. They're options for TB EVo-IV susp. mount X, A, B, C, D, E ...
Are those the same as TRF415 51065 - 51069 susp. mount A, B, C, D, X ?
(I don;t know why E is not there for TRF415 ?)

About the belt, have you tried loosen the adjuster, yet ? It's only 2 teeth different than the orig. pulley.

I think it's low friction and stronger ... other than good looking bluish-thing

Thanks, I'll skip the TB EVO-IV mounts anyway.
And I see no reason to get E mount.

I'm gonna buy only those all 415 mounts with 2 pcs of 53685.
And plan to get the 53899 lt. reversible with the alum shaft (48mm) and steel shaft (48mm).
