Is acetone safe to use on 416 graphite chassis? I'd rather just use that. Also i didnt file down the edges, i just CA'd it out of the box. This should be fine?

Thanks!

typical that is the hight from the bottom of the outer most part of the a arm from a setup board, i have been using this method for a wile and it seem to be more consistent

acetone should work to remove the excess glue that ran ontop the plate
dont worry about skipping the sanding, thats fine

Hi guys first post so please be gentle. I was wondering if anyone who runs the tamiya spool in their 416 has had any problems with it. I was at an outdoor meeting yesterday and ran the spool and had to keep replacing the black plastic pieces that the anodised cup goes over. I had to do this every 2 runs and wasn't hitting anything. I was using a 10.5 LRP Vector motor geared at 5.4. This is the first time that i had put the spool in the car and i'm quite annoyed at how weak this spool is compared to the 415 and MSX spools i had in the older cars.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cool thanks, I'll give that a go when I get home. Will this wipe off all that white cloudy stuff?

Use 46mm bones up front. That'll fix the issue.

Also check that you don't have the eccentric bearing holders around the wrong way (the dot should be up, arrow should be down). Otherwise the outdrive collars rub on the bulkheads and the outdrives melt

Anyone run the spool with foam tires on carpet?

If not- whats the best way to diff the front? just put the same as the rear in the front?

Yep, direct fit. Wheels shouldn't rub or do anything funky either. Tamiya makes an optional 2.5mm chassis if you really wanna.

Just started building the spur gear section of my 416 last night, having a hell of a time finding the 0.2mm shim (BR2). Is this a silver or blue part? I m pulling my hair out.

I went and got myself some Loctite CA as well, the liquid type. I found this method much easier. All I did was drop it on the edge and let gravity pull it along. Do I have to go around all the internal edges as well?

Thanks.
