I prefer cars that can't finish turns.

hi, are there any carbon lipo battery holders for the 417x, like on the xray, better question would be, does anyone make a carbon battery holder for the tamiya 417x, instead of using the tape, thanks

Simple answer, no.
If you do want a battery strap, you'll have to mod one from another car.. could look at the ones from the TA05 range? I know thats has a carbon strap option part.

Zaraz, I adapt the HotBodies 67841 part to my Smoken 416X chasis, and is awesome!.
Look this photo.




My new 417X is coming and I don't now if I adapt the same part to it or use front body post and battery holder that cames with 51253 part attached to new lipo battery holder part 13454833 and 834 or buy another hotbodies 67841 part to the 417X.

King regards!

are you running boost or non boost if youre running boost 113 is good depending what motor brand you run and how big is youre track size ? for non boost 113 will not work you have to go alot smaller spur gear i use 88 and to gear it again what is the track size and what motor are you using ?

The best place to get info on the diffrent suspension blocks and what they do is here...

http://www.thard.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=30

Read the first part then just below is a suspension block list you can down load.

Hope this helps

I need alot more corner entry steering.

I have played alot with roll centres, oils (350cst to 500cst, rebound, no rebound, holes in the caps, no holes in the caps), springs (HPI blue, silver, pink and gold), wheelbase, ackermann and even some front arm sweep (1D FF - 1XB FR).

The car is good from the middle of the corner to the exit but lacks to much going in. Nothing I have tried so far has had any influence on turn in. The car is new, tyres (MM32) are new. LTC-R shell 5mm forward.

What have people found to help with the very initial turn in?

Hi,

I've got problems with my car (TRF-417)

In the Hungarian Tamiya Cup we've got slippery carpet.I use the car with 10.5T brushless motor.My problem is find the traction in the carpet.I've cut the motor mount and the upper deck for more traction but it isn't help.I use 450 oil in the dampers and MR33 B oil in the gear diff.I don't know what can i do for more traction.If someone can help me would be very well.

Thanks,

Mate
