Oliver,
You've finally gone to the dark side of RC cars and now your selling your 417! This is a sad time indeed, never thought you would give up on Tamiya chassis, so i guess no more TCS for you, huh?
I have to admit, I'm very impressed with you and Walter's car they look very fast at the Tamiya track!
Just my 2$

Hi, Max. I haven't given up on Tamiya completely. I still plan to run TCS. The 417 works great. I just have too much stuff. I just need to reclaim my house. Cars and tools and bodies and tires and parts have taken over

I've been real impressed by you too Max. You've gotten pretty fast. I wondered where Timmy's fast genes came from...now I'm starting to see

I'm glad you didn't find that extra .3 - .5. You're already the guy to beat. At least now, there's still a tiny chance we'll finish on the same lap as you

Hello all,
I'm about to start building my first Tamiya (wooh finally) the 417x for a low to med/low traction tight cold outside asphalt track in 13.5 boosted. Would I be better starting with kit setup or one of Jilles or Kiyokazu most recent setups from PetitRC? Jilles, Kiyokazu.

Ditching the schuey Mike?
Personally, I'd go with one of Jilles' setups to start with, usually a very good place to start from. Or go have a chat with McPhee..

I have question about the 417x. I'm very new to this car.
What blocks and split blocks would I need for the for the front end to get steering into the turn.

And what toe blocks and split blocks should I need to get 2.5 rear toe.

And what toe blocks and split blocks should I need to get 3.5 rear toe.
Im racing at 3 asphalt tracks 1 low bite, and 2 med to high bite.

I'm running the kit setup with HPI Silver springs fr and rear with a gear diff in the rear and a spool up front with solara hard tires.

Rear would be 1XA split blocks with a 1D for 2.5 deg, 1E for 3 Deg, and 1F for 3.5 Deg standard blocks.

Front would be 1C split block and 1C standard block in the front front.


There is a pretty useful chart up here http://www.thard.co.uk/viewforum.php...1c82676d131441
