I'm looking forward to getting the new 416X when it comes out.

The most popular bodies would be the Protoform Mazda 6, Mazdaspeed 6 or LTC-R. That body pictured technically would fit, but it is a 200mm body and electric sedans run 190, so it would just be really wide and probably wouldn't handle too well.

The parts you seek are:

9444623
3454520

ampdraw.com has the one-way housing for cheaper than TamiyaUSA, but the joints are out of stock. You might need to check into the HK shops. Such is the Tamiya way, apparently.

Thank you. So 190mm it appears. I like that Audi design, maybe they will develop a 190 version. I will be running carpet with rubber tires.

Yeah, I like the body too, but I haven't been able to find a 190mm version of that Audi.

Derrick! You don't need another 416! Does that mean you'll sell me mine back!

Hey Jimmy, I can't, I have become one with my car. I'm going to try a different ratio tomorrow to see what kind of hp I can get out of it. Timmie gave me a few ideas to try. Plus I will be on a new set of tires, so I should be real fast tomorrow.

So was the air duct a bad idea or something? How come it's not in the WE kit? There's not much there to mount the speedo to -- what do you guys do?

Haha, jerk! Just kidding. I'm liking my Yok. I'll be leaving my TA05 at home tomorrow and bringing the BD5.... with new tires as well...

Can't you just buy an airduct to bolt up to the WE? Most cars I know of didn't come it one. I think only a few did. That's why I bought a few spares. I liked using it because of the reason you mentioned there... not enough meat to mount a speedo. You try shoe goo?

Yeah, you can still buy them and they will bolt up, and that's what I plan to do. I was just wondering why they went away.

You got your BD5 working good. I need to put your setup on my BD. But I am having to much fun with the 416.
