417 or 417x? 417 is 1 piece, 417x is 3 pieces.

Since you wouldn't cut a 3 piece motor mount here is a picture of the cut 1 piece motor mount.

That was my question, why would you want to cut the 3 piece mount.

417, i have the original 1 piece and so do most of the guys at the track. Trying to make the decision to stock the 3 piece for sale, or just suggest they cut the one piece if it's easy enough to do.

What is the overall benefit of having a gear diff up the front anyway?

Gear diffs will give yo ua few more tuning options than a spool.

You can run it really stiff, or run it loose if you want more steering on a high grip surface. Plus its a little less aggressive on the drive shafts.

when using diff on front I felt that I lost output power after coner even using ride gum on it, what setting is recommended for front diff when running 13.5 class.

It really depends on your track. From my experience front gear diff is good when you're running high grip tight (lots of turn-ins) track.

For smooth and medium grip track, I find spool to be more consistent.
