Got my 416X kit yesterday, and about 75% done with the build. I was surprised at how many changes they made to the car, a lot of small subtle things, but they all should make the car better overall.

Just awaiting my Schumacher diff grease so I can build the diff and throw the rear end together. Schumacher USA does have it in stock for any who are in need.

Steel is the preferred choice.

Building up mine too. It seems the center motor mount post does not line up with the chassis- about .3mm off. When I loosen the 2 main motor mount screws and attach only the center post screw and the rear motor mount screw then the middle hole position is off.
Can you confirm if this is happening on yours Randy?

Thx,

M

Doesn't using zero toe result in an incosistent car? I was always told that zero toe allows the play in the suspension to bounce around and keep the car from tracking straight. If you run a little bit of toe-out, that will force slack in suspension to one side and allow the car to track straight and true. Personally I would start with a small amount of toe-out in the front.

At my local parking lot races, we almost all use dual diffs. The track setup is very narrow, so you spend lots of time making extremely tight 180's. A one-way works very well in these conditions, but restricts you to a single line. This doesn't allow you to defend your position.

The top guys at our races couldn't get spools to turn in enough. One of best runs a WE...

Mine lines up perfectly, tightened everything down and my chassis lays flat on the setup board. Nothing seemed like it didn't line up right in my kit.. Try loosening the center mounting post and re-tightening it on the motor plate with everything snugged down to the chassis.

Do you mean outdrives or dogbones? don't use steel outdrives for the spool, you will lose steering

OK,

I can not work it out. I swapped the servo with another one that I know it working perfectly and nothing, same issue.

Tightened the rear diff up abit, nothing. Chassis is completely flatů

Could it be that I have a faulty front spool? I will try more toe out tonight...

oh that sucks. Guess I'll just order a lot of them. Wonder what mechanics are involved for the loss of steering.

Does anyone use ECSs instead of the CVDs on the X? What the next best option if the steel shafts takes away steering other then the aluminum one? One more thing whats the advantage of the 46mm over the 44mm shafts
