went with the 416 setup yesterday on the 417x, changed droop to 5 front and rear, increaded rear toe to 2.5 and it handled like it was on rails, cant wait to give it another crack tuesday night.

Wheres a good place to get bearings? went with the tamiya kit ones and the front diff carrier bearings are shot allready (explained the slow down in qual 2 last week)

That happens when the bullheaded clamps are too tight on the eccentric bearing holders. You can lightly sand the holders until the clamps no longer rock, or use 0.1mm shims between the bulkheads and the clamps to take the pressure off the bearings.

416 setups need a little adjusting to be right on the 417 due to the different shock towers and bulkhead heights, you might be able to go even faster

I heard about the dogbone blades being too soft and eating into the outdrive. People are switching them to another brand like AE?

I have been looking everywhere and I cannot see the reason there is a hole in the steering post support and upper deck... did someone make a post or something to connect the two for additional support?

It is shown in the manual, from memory you use a 3mm thick shim ,screw and nut.

real easy to assemble- not.

The original 416 had a bridge that attached to the upper deck, it was rarely used.

They are fine you just need to keep an eye on them and change them once they get sloppy. Its a 50c part, don't let it ruin a $10 part because you wanted to get another run out of it!
