SpecR geardiff o-ring is smaller in diameter (inner and outer).

CraigW,
I believe you're looking for 51470 Maintenance Parts Set for Gear Diff2 Units. It has the o-rings, 0.01mm shims and pins in the same bag.

Default rear toe-in different from left to right?

Guys:

using 1XA and 1E blocks in the rear, but my setup system shows me that I am 3 deg toed-in on the left, but 3.5 deg toed-in on the right...

Has anyone experienced this before? How can I rectify? Perhaps I need to purchase new mounts?

Any experience would be appreciated!!

try loosening the screws under the blocks and re-tightening them. Also, check all the blocks for any kind of bend (this can happen after hits), and if bent, replace. If it's still the same, it's most likely just some slack in the setup system or bearings... put it down and run it.

Don't worry, Chris. The new chassis is only a couple of tenths quicker

Hi guys,

Going to be getting back into touring after a few years off. I have narrowed down my choices to a couple of cars - namely the X-Ray (used to run them all the time), Associated 6.1 and the 417.

What are the main "issues" with the 417 - what wears out really quickly? I want to go something different - and the Tamiya is where I think I would like to go. I drive for the Durango team in off road - so I dont mind something a little different. I am looking at the 417x.

I appreciate your time in answering

Cheers

Darryn

With the introduction on the gear diff - the 417 series is as solid as you can get. Probably the only part that takes on some wear is front cvds when you run spools.

Unless the car is abused, you can run 50 packs before you might notice serviceable wear.

In retrospect I would have purchased C-hubs and Cvds as the only spares. The rest of the parts for tuning.
