We are allowed to run max 5.3 FDR (with 5 cell) or 6.3 (with LiPo)...

That makes more sense. Most of us here are running LiPo with no FDR limitations, and seem to end up between 4.6 and 5.0. While it's not mod, it definitely doesn't feel slow. The difference between and undergeared 13.5 and one that's properly geared is usually pretty significant. Once you get them right, they rip.

With those limitations I can see why you might find the motor a little slow. You aren't allowing the motor to wind up. The motors sweet spot is around 4.6 I run lipo and couldn't imagine running a 6.3 FDR It might be better to go with a brushed motor if you are held back with gearing.

So what is the verdict? Is this new WE better than the old one? Anyone did a back-to-back comparo? I need to justify a $500 purchase.

In all honesty (and this has been pointed out before) your not gonna see a huge difference between a WE car, and one that has been given all the "regular race" parts (short arms, gut top deck etc).

Simply put the WE is supplied to mimic the current setups most of us run, whereas the original 416 was supplied with parts most people don't sue any more (Long arms, one way etc).

Is it worth it... if you have a fully hopped up 416, probably not. If you don't have one, then it's certainly a more sensible buy than an original 416.

Im planning to run both stock (17.5) and eventually Superstock (10.5) Is it worthwhile investing in the new motor mount and one piece top deck?

Also Ed did you ever make anymore of those little carbon braces for the steering?

Someone posted recently that the new motor mount is designed for lower turn motor as it more reinforced so it will not bend easily. I only run 10.5 but I got one coming for spare as someone might hit me side on.

Im thinking of butchering my spare shock tower as the 2 holes align perfectly for the steering bracket mod. Just need to trim out a little with a dremel.

There's a company in Finland that does a copy of the new one piece upper deck, it comes with the carbon steering brace also...check some pages back on this thread... Good service, got mine after 2 days...

after a recent run i was loosening the top deck screws to release any tweak in the car, and noticed others doing the same.
i looked at the shock towers and then it dawned on me... why aren't the top deck holes countersunk?! has anyone tried this?
any reason not to do it??

Scotty no need for the updated motor mount for 10.5, my stock one has survived all the hits I gave it in the last pointscore and is still as new

That would be v-dezign. Their service is great; I had mine within a couple of days (thats quick to the land down under), but the exchange rate from AUD to Euro sux so I'd just wait for the Tamiya one if you want to upgrade. On the track the deck is maybe worth a tenth or so

I think it's mainly around accuracy - if you countersink one a little off that'll tweak the car

... and the removal of the steering brace screw is a tuning thing (gives a fraction more steering), not a tweak thing
