Does anyone know of a spool for the TRF 415. If so what is the part number? I would prefer a Tamiya 1 to stay TCS legal. Does the one from the 415msx work on the original 415.

Thanks,
Larry

Larry,
I bought one from Vellrip. Tamiya Part# 49358. It is for the 415. I do not know it the MSX version will fit.
Hope this helps

Dave,
Thanks, I found that one but no one has it because it was discontinued. I did find it in pieces from Vellrip it is the same as the one that came with the Marc Reinhard edition car, just ordered it up from him.

I can't wait to try the car with the spool, it sounds like the spool is the way to go with the burshless motors now. Plus I might want to convert my 415 to a RCGT car, I am setting up Matthew's TA05 for RCGT now.

At one point I thought the same way but ended up going with a double diff setup. The key is the right tightness and bias. Then again I am sticking with 17.5 turn instead of my dabbling with a 13.5.

A spool can cause your car to push and can wear out front end parts quicker.

You need P/N 53921 Tamiya TRF415 Aluminum Front Ball Differential Joint Set. I have a NIB Tamiya one along with (2) NIB P/N 49358 Tamiya 415 Front spools.

Tale a F103 and rip out the silvercan, stuff in a 19T in it, and tape on a make-shift wing to keep the back down in the sweeper. Found out that high_speed=tire wear. After a few runs of power sliding through the sweeper, we had 0 mm ride height. 4.5 brushless project underway for 2010 outdoor season. F1 Unlimited anyone?

Where is this track in Southern California? I've heard rumors of it. Also, what is the requirement to run there? Do you have to bring a Tamiya on-road?

The track you might be thinking of is the Tamiya R&D facility in aliso Viejo, CA. I believe the adress is 2 Orion but you can call tamiya and ask for specific directions. I have been running there for many many years it is a great facility and great people. it is open on saturdays everyweek and there is no fee. you have to bring your own power or charge your batteries at home. But yes the only requirement is that it is a Tamiya car. Other than that you can have what ever upgrades you want on the car. Come down to join the fun if you need help the people there would be more than happy to help you it is a big family community. So come on out any saturday 9am-4pm. Come have some fun!!
