Hi everyone.
With the Smoken-Fx chassis I had the same problem. In my the hole were not off-center than the original but the belt most shortened. I slightly loosened the belt and everything went well.
With the new chassis and Spec-R diff in my first indoor race in this season I take the final "A" and I ended up 5th in the overall standings.
Good result if we think that for the first time I raced with the new chassis and the new diff.

Thank you Senna! I'm glad I asked.. I was under the impression that the 416X chassis had different hole spacing that would not match up with my WE components.

Yep same issue here, filed the top deck and everything is ok now

Yep I agree, it makes a great car even better

I wrote a review here, it needs to be updated to include the stuff about the top deck needing to be filed

no, you had to do the same on some of the original 416 top decks. I only needed to take a tiny bit off the ends to make mine fit nice

p.s. I've added a post on the tweak. It's pretty self explanatory but I'll try take some photos soon

Default Hole distance suspension blocks

Does anyone know if there is a list somewhere which shows all the center to center distances on tamiya suspension blocks?.

If this isn't available maybe someone could be so kind to measure some of the blocks?.

I want to convert my T3 to a tamiya steering system and the tamiya suspension blocks.

I'm currently ordering all the Tamiya parts but first I need to know which blocks I need to get the same trackwidth as I'm currently using.

Thank you.
