check where you mount your diff pulley. it should be on the far right side of the spool, your diff pulley should almost be touching the shocktowers when done correctly..

but they are more precise these days too. i didn't shim mine more than what the manual says and it's all good

check your pulley, you could have screwed on the wrong side buddy.

Guys, what spring feel almost the same to HPI silver or blue? It's hard to find HPI parts in my place. The available brands are xray, photon, and tamiya.

Thanks

Get the TRF spring from speedtech. They work great!

As mentioned you shouldn't need to over shim, double check that you have fit the pulley on the correct side of the spool, its very easy to miss fit

Nobody runs Tamiya springs competitively unless the rules dictate you have too. Get the Xray...

Theorical Rating
HPI Blue = 14.8lb
HPI Silver = 16.8lb

Xray 2.6 = 14.6lb
Xray 2.8 = 15.8lb
Xray 3.0 = 16.9lb

I use them all the time. The latest and greatest isn't always the best.

It's doesnt need shimming- you need to rebuild the spool! The pulley is backwards.

Default shocks

hello,
i have a question. what does the part number 42102 come w/, piston wise? 2 hole-3 hole? i'm running a competitors car, but HATE the shocks that are on it. i read that the bodies are threaded, but i have seen pictures that there are ride height spacers w/ the kit, or it looks like ride height spacers??

also, i'm assuming that the 42102 is the shocks that come w/ the 417. is that correct?

any info would be greatly appreciated

I review all the mount points about central spur gear, rear diff and front spool without founding any mistakes, and shimmed them in the right possition like manual drive us.

And also, the upper belt tensor, is to centered and I must do a drill 1.5 mm to left about not touch the front belt.

Look at this photos.





Do you have this problem? Any ideas?

King regards from Spain!

Someone had this problem a couple pages back....

thanks for picture i am using gear diff front and back. The picture of kentech does show that belt is away from mounts but once is starts rotating the belt will move left/right and will at one point touch servo mount and even belt tensioner! I went the Yokomo route and mounted my servo with servo tape and further out! Always a way
