Do you have a part number for the thicker upper deck for the 415? Keep in mind, that I am not using the short MSXX upper deck, but the original 415 long upper deck.

I'd rather play around with the thick lower plate and control the flex using the upper deck.

Thanks again for your suggestion.

I've been working on this chassis for the past year adding and changing bits and pieces. There are few things I would like to add to the chassis such as battery holder system, ball cups, turnbuckles and a nice bumper.

I really enjoy tinkering around with these vintage chassis bring them up to current performance levels and allow for newer body shells to be used.Flipped the transmission so ESC wiring will be cleaner.
lovely! My T1 Evo is also ready but the body (will be honda accord or stratus).... you beat me by a few days !

find a 415 ms chassis. Youíll like it much better than the standard 415

Just converted my Yokomo Bd7 to a fwd car for the 2022 season. Had an MTS FFv3 but the front motor mounted cars just did not click with me.

Current motor position is just a bit farther back compared to the Mugen MTC 2 FF car. Tested it today and happy to report it is competitive against the field.

OVA, nice to see it working for you. For my Xray I flipped the upper bulked clamps and shock tower entirely to shorten the upper shock screw and even put the shock tower weight inwards. Maybe it can be done with the Evo 5?

Default HPI Pro 4 (Short Shocks in Rear...?)

Hello

​​​​​​(HPI Pro 4)
I'm having somewhat of a problem installing the Rear-Shocks in the 3-Hole (Suspension-Arm) and the 1-Hole (Shock-Tower); without changing the Rear-Droop. Shock seems to short on one side to be adjusted for softest Fine-Tuning Setting.Can that be achieved with the Pro 4? (I've installed item # 75194 the Competition Aluminum Shocks)

Does anyone have that problem?

Thank you

Letís see what I can do with this Corally RDX.

Quite the thing of beauty. It might fair well
on carpet, but I feel like the chassis is a little too thick 3.00 mm lower and 2.9 mm upper for carpet racing. This car was designed around foam touring and Corally was a formidable contender in this forgotten touring category.

Modified the old TA05 further by removing the front shock tower. New setup was good, 0.6s/lap faster and my driver was happy.

Looks interesting... make a custom 1.5mm chassis and be happy. Rest looks top quality...
