Those 416 servo posts look the same as TB03 ones, but i could be wrong.
The TB03 ones only mounts a single hole on the servo lugs per side. The 416 straight ones months on both holes per side.

Some one here in my local track had the servo ripped out on the lugs recently. The servo was mounted on only 1 hole per side.

Here are my car... Just love the Peugeot 406. Ordered 2x Volvo 850 BTCC for later use. Might order a few new Pug 406 also. Drive really good, had it for a spin yesterday, after setting camber and rideheight it was well balanced. Think it was a little short on steering compared to my M05Pro. Looking forward to getting Xerun 60A with Team Powers 13.5T motor. Tested it with Ezrun 35A and 12T 3300kv motor and stock gearing. Used 46mm universals on it also. Sorry about not cutting bodyposts, not run the car so did not know if i needed to move it up a notch.

Same arm, different material. 416 gets the lightweight carbon-reinforced versions; these are the regular versions. Same exact geometry though.

I just got my FF03 Pro, and was wondering has anyone tried the Spec-R DCJ (416) universals in the front?

Thanks.

Those looked to be regular steel universals from Spec-R. I ran the Spec-R DCJs in my 416 and they broke after just a couple runs with a 17.5.

That looks really good Rosso Torro. I like the Peugeot body on this chassis. I have an older Williams Renault Clio body I have to find, and I'm also looking to get a Volvo 850 body. BTW you should be able to get away with a 2230KV motor since I run one in my M03 and it runs great very good top end speed. I'm going to try one in my FF03.

Rosso Torro, do your front rims rub / scrub on the upper camber link ball cups? and are those 26mm or 30mm fronts?

Default FF03 and 46mm half shafts

Hey there, I just wanted to thank rtype for the info on moving the diff nut to the other side of the diff. Although the instructions tell you to flip the diff it doesnt tell you to flip the diff nut side and the thrust bearing to make the universals fit properly. Once I did this everything fit perfectly. I also purchased the cirtix combo from speedtech and I have been running the car on carpet with hpi x paterns and I have to say that the car really likes this combo of speedo and tires. I have been running it with the vta guys here at out track since the season is over and we don't have the amount of peaple right now to run full classes so they allow me to run with them, and while it is a tick slower than the fast guys of vta with 21.5 and boosted speedos, it is very close, and to compare with the new vta rules of 25.5 it is faster as one guy runs his car in the new format. Anyways the car is a blast to drive and handles awesomely.

I run 26mm front and 30mm rears, no rubbing, no spacers needed. The car handle great!

Thanks, I'm waiting for a Team Powers 13.5T and Xerun 60A to put in it.
I felt that 3300kv ezrun motor was a little slow, so won't use any less.
