I'm with you there. I'm going to Snowbirds at the end of Jan, and plan on taking two 416X's (mine and a loaner). The X w/LiPo chassis is such a fabulous car, there's just no way it's suddenly obsolete.

Why is your lower deck different from the release photo from Tamiya?

What is the spur gear?

Do we need specific gears to fit the new centre shaft and to move the motor?

After opening my box I'm very pleased with the changes they made to some of the components.

Short list:

diff is a little beefier with d-rings, no more 1 piece thrust bearing
cvd's have spring clamps holding the pin instead of set screws
motor bulkhead is sick!
F/R bulkheads are sick too!
center layshaft is sick!
new steering rack is sick!

The only thing I'm a little dissapointed about is no gear diff included. I already have 2 of them but

I am stoked to build this thing! Off to prep the chassis and build some shocks, it needs to be built for a TCS race this weekend

Standard springs are blue and yellow so you get the complete set. Suspension blocks are 1C x 2 (front), 1AX and 1E. HL cylinders for the dampers. Anything more you wanna know?

Will start building and post build pics tomorrow. Carbon prep night tonight
Kentech,

Would love to see the new ball diff? Is it fully covered or the same as previous design?

Thanks.

Dynamic hobbies in Canada. I think they had 1 left.

The diff is awesome. The new out drive halves fit perfectly inside the pulley making it not necessary for the stick on covers. There is no room for anything to get into it

About the TRF417 and what's been asked then...

Yes, chassis plate has cutouts that are not on the official Tamiya pictures and not on the team cars from last weekend's ETS race. They are on the drawings in the manual and on the setup sheet though. Was a surprise when I opened the box. I have no explanation.

Spur gear in the picture is a Xenon VSS spur. Tamiya includes a 111T and 113T spur of new design with holes to allow motor adjustment (wrench through hole to get to rear motor mount screw). These are available as spare parts (51440 & 51441) already. Spurs with only 6 holes (think RW supalite) will not work (will post pics tomorrow).

White ballcups are indeed made by Square. Wanted them because of looks only but they're not quite as smooth as Tamiya's own low friction cups so I will be changing to the original ones.

Blue screws are not standard.
