I just use the standard 3mm shims like on the camber links... it's a pain as you need four per set, but given how rarely I change that setting when racing, no biggie

I don't want parts, I want to know why Tamiya parts (417 and others) seem hard to come by. Is it a US thing?

Getting parts in the US is sort of the bane of Tamiya's popularity here. Tamiya USA would rather sell plastic tanks than race cars.

Nice to see a sticker about the Reedy results on the new kit!

I'm thinking about buying the new 417 with gear diff & was wondering if anyone can tell me which online shop has the best price?
Also is the 417 made in Japan or in China like most other kits?

Cheers Azza..

Not really hard to come by. If TamiyaUSA has it, we can get it!

hey boss... 5 on the front, 3 on the rear... actually went to RCI again today, but the race got postponed so just practised. Pretty much went round the houses tessting all sorts of different things, and at the end of the day went back to those settings, and set consistently my fastest lap times ... well until I stripped the gears in the front geardiff

Have you tried cleaning gum on the front gear diff? thinking to try it this week since I can't get hold of 500k diff oil.

Tried it in the FF03, and certainly works. Just add a little silicone oil to it to make it easier to push in.
