Has anyone had luck with the 416x in parking lot mod racing? I'll be running on a bumpy unprepared surface using 7-8turn or 4.5 motors

Those with Smokem chassis, how thick is your chassis? How do find its handling on carpet with rubber tyres?

haven't run it on carpet but it's 2.3mm thick, the weave is different to the stock one so it probably behaves more like the 2.5mm

Good luck mate! they were rare as hens teeth when the 416 first came out. I've never seen a setup from any of the TRF team that didn't use the kit sway bars tho

CraigM, for asphalt, is it a better handling chassis compare to the stock one? What differences have you noticed?

Compared to the stock chassis on the original 416, it rotates harder and changes direction better, but in low grip I had trouble getting the power down with it

you should be able to get rid of the tweak by adjusting the link lengths. Check the Jilles video on how it's done. Otherwise tamiya also made white and milk blue sway bar sets so you might be able to source them somewhere. They look a lot better than those poxy coloured ones

Just buy the colored bars and spray paint them or sand the color off.

if your desperate sand down the coloured sway bars with 1000-1200gritt paper, make sure u keep it round and not sand the sway bars flat, and paint them with tamiya black paint, use really light coats and let them dry well...

How do untweak your chassis if some of the flat screw head are protruding a bit or not even flush with the bottom of the chassis?

Use some droop blocks. You can place them so they only touch the graphite. Jilles does this in his Videos.
