I was trying to figure out if putting the shims under the susp. blocks on the back of the car would get me the effect I am looking for. As for refering to the blocks I think it would easier to refer to them as f1,r2, f3, r4 going from front to rear on the car.
Right, your car is stuck. If you don't have 0.5mm shims under the rear suspension blocks on your car it will be stuck. Artwork was quoting the xray book which is referring to the front suspension, not the rear.

42182 - comes without oneways

All other chassis parts and mounting parts are the same. Both chassis (main deck) is 2.25mm with a 2.0mm top deck.

42181 is available now (I have had mine since Monday this week).
42182 is not yet available.

It is personal preference and track type what conversion kit to get. Most tracks and people do not use oneways (front or centre) anymore. (except racers in Japan - hence why the oneway version is available now).

HTH.
Can you send me your chassis and I'll give you mine when I get it? you can hang onto the 1-way though

Leonard what shims did you use under your bulkheads? From the photos of Marc's car at reedy and worlds it looks like they are a wider spacer than the ones we use on the camber links, probably to make the mount more stable

Craig,

You are a funny man!!! I am sending the chassis your way until you get yours...


Serious note:

I got mine from Pro Shop Futaba - Japan.

The build and finish of the product is typical Tamiya. You can see the difference in the top deck design (slightly less material around middle on new lipo top deck).

For the motor mount mod, I used the standard camber link spacers to space it up. I too thought it would tweak too easily, but to date (about a months worth of racing)....no tweak yet.

With a new li-po chassis and the TRF drivers using the spec-r diff will this mean a new TRF 416 or 417 at the end of the yesr?

Could be a 416WX in a couple of months or end of the year. Or it could be a 417 in December. Or a 416WX in November followed by a 417 in March.
Don't think there are many people that knows...

I guess the safest bet is on a 416WX (or whatever), i.e. the car used at the worlds, being the next release.

What is sure though is that when a 417 is released it will be a totally new generation, meaning that it will have more major changes.

Has anyone seen the pictures Mark Rheinard car at R6 of the ETS? Mark's car appears to be running a different top deck compared to the lipo chassis upgrade kit. Pictures are on redrc.net > ETS > Gallery.

Looks like a smaller rear pulley and new belt to match it.

I think the outdrives are a bigger diameter - where it contacts the diff rings. Not much of a gap now between the outdrive and diff pulley.

And he's also using the WE front bulkheads...

Got to test out the new lip kit today. Same setup and track - car was more reactive and transferred weight quicker. Quite visible to see. Overall it was 0.2 sec lap faster on best lap.

Car is perfectly balanced with my electrics. The carbon lipo batty braces are great! Have to change the weight location compared with STD kit chassis. Bottom of main chassis barely marked.

Very happy 416 owner.

Sounds like I'll be buying one of these when they are in stock Do you still have to tape the battery in?
