Wyd, yes it uses the 950 bearings... however I've had no problem with them since switching to alloy rear hubs. It seems that the plastic hubs on the LWT suspension just allow the bearings to move too much, which knackers them.

So does it use the driving shafts/unis from the LWT suspension?

The more I read about it, the more I want it (I run tarmac mainly). However only have the standard 415.

I don't have the Tamiya spring set yet, so I dug through my old ancient HPI spring sets (pro1 and pro2 era) and measured them.

Measured values
HPI Gold #6826 10.28 lb/in
HPI Silver #6825 8.35 lb/in
HPI Blue #6847 7.78 lb/in
HPI Red #6844 6.05 lb/in

The HPI gold and silver are measuring close to what the HPI site specs them out to be. However, the HPI site isn't even in the ballpark with their blue and red springs. They are supposed to be 14.8 lb/in and 13.3 lb/in respectively. I wonder what they were smokin?
Xtreme R/C Cars just did a big spring test article. Your findings (actual rates don't match advetised rates) are pretty normal. The really shocking thing is the discrepancy you can find in pairs or springs! Ray Speed and Schumacher are the only companies whos rates are correct and have closely matched pairs.

It works great, but the LW suspension isn't bad either. Need to sell it to get some new batteries.

To put on a regular 415, you will need the 2.6 x 25mm shaft that holds the hub carrier to the A-arm P/N 51099, the 46mm swing shaft P/N 53724 aluminum or P/N 51092 steel, EVO IV wheel axle P/N 51094, Universal drive shaft joints P/N 53500, 5x9 bearings (x4), and then use extra spacers on the hinge pin to take out slop. The 415 uses a 48.5mm hinge pin, the lightweight MS version hinge pin is only 46mm and the DJ arm is designed for the 46mm hinge pin on the EVO IV and 415MS.

Are the bearings used in the uprights in the DJ suspension the same size or bigger/smaller than the ones used in the standard 415 uprights?

Dec, they've said a few times now that it uses 950 sized bearings, which are the same as the LW suspension. The older suspension (TA04 style) used the 1050 bearing, which is a bit bigger.

I didn't know the size number for the standard suspension, Simmo

Ok, smaller, so I have to get more bearings as well.
