If you want notched rings, get the 3Racing diff rings for the 416, they have the D ring.

Cannon is correct, in the past Tammy rings barely needed sanding, nowadays they are like rusted old plates of pitted steel.
If the idea is for the rings to slip, why does the instruction have you use contact cement?

if i remember correctly, these are not direct fit to 416 outdrives, useable but too much tolerance, it will still slip against the outdrives. not sure how they go against FF03 outdrives

I've seen the steering "note direction" and the subtle "diff flip" in several other Tamiya manuals...it's just the way they like to do it I suppose. People get it wrong every time too and are on here asking about it!

Makes you wonder how many messed-up Tamiya cars are out there with owners who don't happen to use the forums.

Finally got mine up and running and got some practice in yesterday afternoon. It was quick and fun to drive with a 540J in it geared 85/50.

I need to find more steering, but I can work on that. It had a pronounced push at higher speeds.

It came off a little hot, but I ran it at least 10 minutes non-stop. I'll be racing it this Sunday and will check temps regularly.

I'm going to open up a few cooling holes in the area between the body's upper and lower grille areas to help cooling -- they'll blow directly on the can. With the body fitting snug against the bumper there is basically zero airflow to the motor. I'm going to get the heat sink bars as well.

Finally adjustments were done in car.

In all seriousness, thanks for posting the actual spur/pinion combo that will work with the gear cover as that saves guess work/money. There is a video some pages back that shows an FF-03 geared at 88/59 for FDR of 3.88
