They work just fine and you dont have to grind anything to get them to fit or for clearance. They use a thinner inside bearing so everything clears.

Cool, thank you very much for the info Kevin. I was using the R1 lightweight uni's but had one snap on me a couple weeks ago. When the funds permit, I think I will get the Tamiya units.

I've been running the Spec-R gear diff in the rear of my 416 in MOD TC with a 4.5 motor. So far it seems to work fairly well for 2 weekends of racing. I have not had any major issues with leaking oil from the pulley, however I do notice that oil is coming out of the outdrives. I am using green slime on the case gasket. Should I be using something on the outdrive o-rings to seal it better? Right now I am using AE black grease on them.

Also on a sidenote, I installed the Spec-R CV2 dcj's and they have held up to 2 weekends of MOD. They have quickly developed slop, but they are still working. How often should I be rebuilding/replacing parts on the units?

Default 51333 rear up rights

The 51333 rear up rights have zero toe in correct?

The 51354 is the TB03 version with softer plastic right?

Yes you are correct.

Also remember that the softer plastic will last more high speed crashes then the carbon based parts because they give a little bit under pressure instead of just snap on impact the very first time.

Thanks! The reason for my post was, I had my car on my set up station, and my rear toe in measured 4.5. In the rear, I'm running XA front, and D in back, which should give me 2.5. So I'm confused... Am I reading my set up station wrong? Do I have some mysterious rear uprights?

check EVERYTHING, make sure NOTHING is bent. When Tamiya was my main car i ran i learned that it was the most touchy car ever made, but as long as everything is on-point its untouchable really. Check all you bushings that go into the suspension holder, check the blocks themselves, check inner hingepins, outer hingepins and maybe just change your rear hubs, they may just be worn out. also check to make sure the arms arent worn out either.

Thanks for the input. Will do a check at home when things are calm. I was checking at the track and there are too many distractions when you are running 3 classes lol.

that looks like the one I have in my 416x - but i know the x has narrower bulkheads (i thought that's what I read)...so worse case you might need some shims to get the spool where you want it

No, 416 bulkhead widths are all the same. The 417 bulkheads are narrower than 416, but the bearing offset is the same between both cars

Are people still buying/running these things? I'm cleaning up 4 of them to sell. They've been collecting dust for a while and deserve to be on a track.

Also, I've got a used genuine Tamiya LiPo chassis in good shape I'm going to part with.
