I didn't buy this 'kit' per say, but ended up with it anyway. I added the carbon fiber chassis, trf shocks, one-way mid pulley, one-way front ball diff with machined aluminum pulley, rear ball diff, with aluminum pulley, aluminum ball raced steering arms, stabilizers front and rear, aluminum spur gear holder, all titanium screws, blue seal bearings, titanium adjusters in all the connectors, Front and rear aluminum uprights, all 4 universals, no limit Jaguar ESC, 11 turn Venom motor, made here in Idaho, 25 tooth hardened pinion, super servo saver, aluminum servo stays, aluminum center pulley to work with the one-way, hardened center shaft and a nice factory painted Corvette CR-5 body to top her off. I used the low friction belts, as it was a SS when I got it and the original ones were too short. If you are going to do this car like this, buy the pro or TRF kit. It is a long way towards being what you will want to end up with. That said, you will also need a set-up board for any car that has all the adjusters the recent ones have. Otherwise, you are guessing and are going to have a hard time getting the same set-up twice. A little tweak goes a long ways. I set this car up per factory specs. I ran very well and is super fast. The one-way front diff and center pulley mean you carry no friction to speak of into a turn. This is good and bad. It does not slow down like a regular set-up does when you jump off the trigger. It does come flaming out of the turn having lost far less speed. Once you get used to it, it really will improve lap times. This car, for some reason is not as well mannered as my EVO 3. It is very close in speed, but the EVO is nicer in the turns. I tried to keep the balance and COG as low as possible, but the EVO is just further along the evolutionary trail. I am going to do a Grasshopper 2 next, then a Wild Dagger followed by a sleeper, the ff01 Honda Civic Hatch. I would like to build a 415, and probably will next winter. I highly recommend this chassis and aparently, the factory agrees, the 415 is mostly a TA04. Shaft, belts, will the question ever be solved? Not by me.
