What are your experience with geardiff on front? Thanx
I switched from spool to front gear diff recently and it's working like a charm for me. Instead of oil, I'm running it with Mobil 1 axle grease (red stuff) I learned about it when I ran 1/5 scale. So whenever I want to tighten up a gear diff to the max, I run it. Its heavy, doesn't over heat an remains consistent and it doesn't need maintenance

You can also use AW grease in the front gear diff.
Makes it real sticky and won't get loose when it heats up but gets a bit tighter

I have a love and hate relationship with the AW grease. I was at west coast RC and all I had was the tube. Opened it up and it went all over my hand.. I didnt have any alcohol or soap, so i couldnt get it off lol..

It is good stuff that's for sure.. Funny thing is it costs about the same price as a half pint tub of the Mobil 1 lol.

Well just fill it with 30.000 silicon oil, let see how it goes and I will try the greese next.

FYI to all the 416 guys, the Xray NT1 rear gear diff is pretty easy to fit in the car. Just takes some care mounting the pulley to the diff. Otherwise, it drops straight in (no shimming needed, uses stock bearings, dogbones fit outdrives).

From memory, the bore of the Xray outdrives are a larger diameter compared to the Tamiya. So the driveshafts might float around a little unless you change them also. Xray driveshafts aren't cheap...

They do float a little bit. If it affects the car on the track, I do happen to have an old 007 laying around I can pillage driveshafts from.

OK ,tested the spec r geardiff with the 30.000 silicon oil in it and it was great,i did have to change the front driveshafts(the stock are to short) from 44mm stock to 46mm,other then that was cool.
raced on carpet and car felt very smooth.
here my setup

The floating driveshafts didnt seem to affect the car any, it was good enough to TQ mod at our club today.

I don't think xray bones will fit the car anyway, they are much longer

Default 416WE or 416X

I'm sure that this has been asked more than once here but I just can't find it. Here is my Question guys, what's the difference between the 416WE and the 416X and which is a better car.

Thanks, TIKO

The xray bones do fit actually. IIRC Xray measurements are not the same as Tamiya. The only thing to watch out for with the xray bones is that the pins may have to be shaved down so that they dont hit the inner ballstud if it sticks below the bulkhead cap

That would make sense, I can't for the life of me see how xray would fit an extra 10mm on each bone without making the arms super long

Pretty sure Tamiya measures pin to pin, and Xray end to end.
