The only thing I have had to replace on the car was a bent screw. I did get the car second hand though and didn't think about the other parts being replaced already. I know I have put the car through a serious torture test and it is very tough.

I would suggest the 416WE, it has all the optional parts that people are running on thier original 416. I have been running the SMC 5000 28c pack, and it fits right in...

That seriously seems like a fluke... I have chipped the outer edge of one when I bent an aluminum bone on a hard hit, but I haven't been able to brake one of the plastic cups. As of this time nobody I know of has an upgrade for the stock one, I would suggest he put a new outdrive on it and try again, with the aluminum outer sleeve it should be extremely durable.

Any suggestion on which connector is good or better that deans? All my packs are deans and i m thinking of trying the Traxxas connector. By the way is intellect 3800 35C a good battery?

In the past, I've been able to just peel them off with some force. The shoo goo can be removed from the case by hand. It does tend to discolor the plastic a bit. The trick is to try and not bend your weights so you can reuse them down the road.

Lots of activity in this thread lately. It's good to see more interest in this car stateside. Perhaps other hobby shops will start stocking more parts. I mentioned to Stormer that I'd love to buy parts from them, and they said they've been considering carrying 416 stuff, so we'll see.

I hope they do, I would probably get all my parts from there.

Make sure that the 44mm driveshafts are in the front or the spool outdrives will break in notime.
