You just use the stock 416WE top deck. The one supplied with the chassis kit won't work so just set it aside or see if you can sell it to someone who owns a 416X.

Guys I tried to find some information on that but could not find or did not managed to used the search engine the right way.

I have heard that using the 46mm shaft on the front is better, what does to the car performance.

I am running the 416X with gear diff and the car is really great, the best investment in rc I have ever done.

The 46mm shafts keep the plastic spool outdrives from breaking so easy.

Default Exotec, or Tamiya

Based on your experiences, or opinion what chassis would you buy:

The Exotec Lipo chassis, or the Tamiya Lipo chassis??

They both look great and I would love to try one on my 416 WE

Cheers!

That is the only advantage of it I assume?

If you plan to race any TCS events, I would purchase the Tamiya release (I plan to get 1). For my second car, the Exotec, Smokem, or the ProDrive offerings will be explored.

Pay atention to Loic Jasmin at the Euros. I think is using the new Smokem FX Chassi. He is on A-Final pace.

Very good point! I do plan to run TCS next season, so I'll head up with the Tamiay Chassis. From what I read it will fit the WE without issue as long as I use the WE top deck...correct?

Cheers and thanks for the reply.

Also, where can I order the chassis online?
