I have the square c-hubs as well, and it works. I have also seen my friend run the stock carbon c-hubs and the square alu. knuckles, and not break a c-hub ever, with some pretty decent hits. It would seem that you just need one alu. piece to keep the other from flexing and breaking.

I usually get parts at RC-Mushroom, Rc Mart, Tower(very limited selection)

I believe the 417 uses alot of the same parts, so parts availability should be good for a while. Certain aftermarket parts are hard to find.

Having recently bought a used 416X, I've already damaged 3 plastic front outdrives in the first 2 race meetings (indoors on carpet). I've read/heard of a few different solutions to reduce the risk of damaging the outdrives, but which one would be best?

1. Change the front driveshafts to the #51092 46mm steel ones.

2. Change the plastic outdrives to steel ones like these.

3. Change the spool to a gear diff filled with very thick oil (not sure if Spec.R or 3Racing). A couple of the other 416 drivers have gone the gear diff route (front & rear), and found that the diffs perform very well.

Going to the 46mm steel dog bones is the easiest/cheapest solution, and it certainly works.

I agree, the 46mm steel bones up front is the way to go. Get a good bumper, too. The Parma T2 bumper is a pretty close fit and does wonders.

Anyone have a lead on a TRF Lipo chassis?

Based on what I have read, the Smokem and TRF lipo chassis are about the same, is this still what the general thought is?

I'd prefer the TRF one...if you have a bead on one let me know please.

TIA

Brett

The smokem and TRF chassis are quite different actually. The smokem LP is stiffer and the FX is less stiff, the TRF is right in the middle. It depends on your track as to what is best for you

I recently acquired a 416X lipo car, its very different to anything I have had before. Which plate would you recommend for carpet med/high traction?
