for those that prefer MIP CVD's I have tested the HB/HPI MIP CVD axle
fits PERFECT on the 416. The bone however, does not. I tested a corally
bone from an RDX/PHI and it fit perfect.

For those that want to stay color matched Im not sure what MIP CVD bone
would fit that is tamiya blue, never seen it.

Probably the same as the Xray ones, run forever in spec but if your track has a heavy braking section in mod it will snap within laps.

The xray ones work just fine with 13.5 on the tightest layout you've ever seen . 13.5 is what he mainly runs so he should be fine.

They could also be HPI springs. HPI silver springs are available in black with silver marking.

Guys, do your 416WE has even steering left and right? Coz mine always understeer when I turn right, turning left is fine with lots of steering. I also notice my car changes direction quicker to the left than right. I have check and set my steering throw evenly on my set up station. I m using Sanwa 801SDX servo and the steering rod is almost 90deg from the saver to the steering rack. Is it my car is tweak or unbalance left / right?

Could be bent driveshaft in the front
or.......uneven droop settings
or.......endpoints out of whack
or.......rebuild front shocks making sure both the same length and pack .
