Default trf415 questions

hey guys just bought a 415 and need to know a few things about them.
Any parts prone to breakage?
How often do I have to replace belts?
Is it safe to run brushless in stock form and how quick do you think it will go with a Novak ss+ 8.5?
What type of gearing everyone is running?
Do they make a plastic bit to go over the top of the battery to hold it in place rather than Velcro?
Any hopups recommended?

And just give me your opinion on the chassis

Cheers,
Pat

Is it safe to run brushless in stock form and how quick do you think it will go with a Novak ss+ 8.5? yes, and pretty fast
What type of gearing everyone is running? depends on the track
Do they make a plastic bit to go over the top of the battery to hold it in place rather than Velcro? what r u talkin about? u r supposed to use fiber reinforced tape
Any hopups recommended? msx conversion, if u can pop for it

And just give me your opinion on the chassis
overall is a great chassis. the only thing is taking half the car apart to get to theh diffs, and the msx conversion solveas that

Cheers,
Pat
hope this helps

i have been running my 415ms for over a year now and have only changed the belts once! parts that break...well if you tap a board at speed, you will probably bust a c-hub, steering knuckle, or front a arm. i have gone through many since i run on a tight indoor asphalt high grip track. i run a 5.5 gear ratio with a 23turn stock motor. (thats all they race over here in japan)
have fun with your new kit!
