The aluminum outdrives are worth a try. Also, have you tried threadlock on the diff nut?

Long arms ?
Would that be the - Tamiya EVO IV D Parts Suspension Arm?
and how much longer are these to the short ones?

I don't have to worry about width as this car is running for fun, and I have a 200mm HPI BTCC Mondeo shell waiting to fit on it, so can go up to 16mm wider than the car currently is.
Then it is the question of which drive shafts?

thats the right set of arms. the "long" arms are exactly 1mm longer than the arms that come with the 416.

tamiya also makes 6mm alum. hex clamps as well as offset rims to help you make up for the 16mm difference (if you dont want to invest in additional suspension blocks)

the X/XD, 6mm clamps plus the offset rims.. you should be fairly close.

416 and FF03 have the same arms. so the FF03 arms are 1mm shorter than the evo IV arms you posted about earlier.

DOH!!!!!!
bit of brain fade there .... lol
think I'll stay with current arms and go for wider sus holders.
Would need 46mm shafts if I go for X or A holders, correct ?

Can see an order being placed with Speedtech
