You need Tamiya #42205.
Seriously, they are too different. It isn't worth it buying all the parts to upgrade it. Just buy the 417X. It will save you a lot of hassle, and you will get a new and fresh car.

I am headed up there this week to test out my 417x. I am using tamiya medium inserts and shaved the middle because there is some extra rubber flash. other than that I am using David Jun set up

If its a new track I usually try the third hole in both front and rear and then do some test laps.

What? Your kidding right. You need a set-up? Are you still using your "Infamous 414"? There's a 414, 415 , 415X, 416 that TQ'd this last TCS , 417 and 417X take your pick on what set-up!
