As for the C-Hubs. No, the 05MS ones are the same as the 415. The TA05 IFS does use the same types, but in a plastic, rather than graphite material.
If you want to get close, try 415 C-hubs, but with HPI front knuckles. It puts the axle at the same height as the 416, but the steering link ball joint is moved in and forward slightly.
I was running that combo today, as my spares hadn't arrived in time.... worked fine
tryhard, do you have the part number for the HPI steering knuckle? and im having trouble finding spare parts for the 416 online, rcmarket seems to have all the things i want, but they dont sell a lap counter, and rc mushroom has a lap counter but doesnt have the 416 c hub. anyone else know where i can source out my spare parts on the internet?

Try PrecisionRC. I just ordered a bunch of 416 parts from them over the weekend. Hopefully it'll be here before Sunday. I broke my CHubs and had to use 415 CHubs for the time being. Maybe try EBay as well. I'm not sure when TowerHobbies will have them in stock. But they do have them listed. Try RCModel, RCMarket, Rainbowten, RCChamp, etc.

For chassis tweak, are you asking about 416 chassis tweak? If so, I find this chassis very very hard to tweak.

Does anyone know if any companies make aluminum 4 degree C-hubs and\or aluminum 0 degree rear uprights for the 416?

I've been breaking the composite chubs pretty easily, so I wouldn't mind seeing if aluminum ones cut down on the breakage without transferring too much energy to something else.

I bought some of the non-composite chubs by accident, and decided to give them a try, even though they're quite flexible. It seems to have cut down on the breakage, and given the car a little more steering as well.

Hello Guys,

Attached my set-up from DHI Cup last weekend.
Marc's set-up was same, Viktor only used 0.5mm rollcenter shims and front 0.5mm anti-dive.

Hey Jilles,
Congratulations with your first Tamiya result.
I'm sure that with the Tamiya, you can win the World Championship!
