Hi guys,

I was wondering what is the difference between the 417x and the 417, and is there a price difference.

417X is a move towards a more aggressive 417.

More flexible chassis and top deck; three piece motor mount, and new shock towers with additional mounting holes.

Now that the 417X is coming out, I'm sure the 417 will be cheaper, not the other way around!
I think when the 417 first came out the price was about the same.
The issue is now they are no longer making the 417, you will have a hard time finding one. I'm sure somewhere in Japan or Hongkong at some hobby store they are still available.
Just my 2$

As I drove my car last night, one of the things I noticed with the X is that it somehow is smoother around corners and carries a lot more speed than the
417. I didn't feel it was more aggressive. It just steered better all around with
little or no hint of understeer.
And, this is with just a spring change. No major changes to the stock set-up.

No car can really be a "complete package" car but this one comes millimetrically close imho.

Good to hear. Was this a result from carpet, or asphalt?
