Nope, that'll be the parts for DCJ's for the 417...

I'll run my 414 if they allow me to keep my 416 steering rack on it. What wing is everyone using now for nsx bodies? But, I really don't think tamiya will bend the rules. I just bought an Evo5.

Does any company make 6 degree C hubs for the 416/417 (or another model that will cross over)?

I run Xray front knuckles and C-hubs on my 417 and the only mod required is ream out the Tamiya A-arm holes to accept the X-ray outer hinge pins.

Do the driveshaft lengths stay the same? I'm trying to get everything needed ordered at the same time.

How do the Xray pieces feel on the track?

You can add positive kick-up to the suspension blocks by adding more shims under the front block in the front. Same affect! That's what I'm doing right now on my chassis! My little secret!
Just my 2$

You would probably have to get a clarification on the steering rack from Fred but I wouldn't see why not, it's all Tamiya parts!
As far as wings, the high down force and the low down force were both being used last race, most are using the NSX but the 416 that TQ'd was using a Lambo body and Rod ran the new Audi body, Timmy my son ran the NSX. So take your pick! The Tamiya B3's are like always very track temp oriented so just as before, set-up can change from day to day! The spec tires can be on the edge when the weather is cold!
Just my 2$

not really as adding/removing shims under the blocks changes both kickup/dive and caster.

What about 0 or 2 Tamiya based C hubs? (not xray pieces) Are they available to fit the 417?

Everything is a direct swap over. Bearings are the same size also
