Just put some medium loctite on the screw if you don't have that try some white glue. that is totally normal when you screw metal in to metal.

Hello guys,

We have indoor carpet track in Chino CA.

If you guys plan to go to IIC, it will be a great IIC Warmup race.

Also, Click Here to visit the Tamiya 417 Parts Store.
FYI, Thanks.

Perhaps they are not as realistic as the normall TC or GT bodies from Tamiya?
Don't know the rules tho.
Or perhaps it is it's availebility?

The B4 is an aero shell, not a scale shell. That is why it is not allowed. It would be unfair to use this shell as I was built as a racing wing with just a nod to a real car.

If you would allow this shell then everyone would use them, and you would have lost the whole identity of scale racing which the tamiyacup promotes.

Also re cutting the mount, try the car first without doing it before deciding if you need to cut it.

Hi all

My first onroad car and its a 416we couldn't see the original thread and thought that most here would have started with the 416 anyway.

My question is do I need to have the servo saver or can I just use a alu arm?

I ask this as I have tried with the arm and it seems to turn more one way than the other, and I probably shouldn't have a huge difference in EPAs

Does the supplied servo saver solve this?

If so then how do I put it together?
Do I need 3 metal rings?
I think I have 3 gold coloured ones (the same size) and one black one (larger) is it just a gold one and a black one or do I open up a gold one as well?

You need to have the arm slightly off from centre leaning towards the middle of the car. It still might not be perfectly centred but it should be close.

I wouldn't use a tamiya servo saver, use a kimborough type as tamiya ones come loose quickly. Most racers use alloy arms, as long as you are confident of not hitting barriers and have a good servo.

So I ran my 417 on carpet for the first time since Winter...

Handling wise the car was pretty decent however I had a few problems.


I was using Jaco Blue tires(old ones that a friend of mine had) and the traction was lower with those tires compared to my usual. That being said the biggest problem was actually the rims fitting the hex. I stripped two wheel hexes out as it seems the hex on the jaco rim are too big for the tamiya? There was slop and eventually they let go. Anyone know if this was a problem with Jaco tires of old? I worry as this is the hand out tire for the IIC...

The old Jaco rims had some issues, there newer ones are ribbed around the hex for more strength.
