For those drivers that use Sanwa servo's and want to try the CSO floating servo mount, dont bother. The servo cant be mounted as it hits the steering bellcrank. Just hold off for the proper Tamiya version for sure

I have a 417 with cut top deck, cut motor mount but not the shock towers from the 417X...
I run sorex 32 or 28 though.
If you say your car was planted, I might try that
Thanks
I didnt use a setup station or anything, all by eye.
Using a hobbywing sensored motor, with a hobbywing xerum 60a 2.1, with 6000mah 65-130c.The motor gets fairly warm, but not too hot.

400CTS in all 4 shicks, blue's on front, whites on rear i think, tried to get 0 toe in on front, 3 degrees on rear, 5mm ride height with a litthe bit if droop, 5mm hex's, cant remember what holes the suspension go on. The tires get rather hot too, there needs to be 26 shore!

i race on mid small carpet

Try this, it worked very nicely at TITC. Make sure you use LTC it's the only fast body when the grip is high!

Default Cooling Fan direction?

I'm quite certain that there is a better thread to ask this question, but for TRF417 drivers, what is the preferred motor cooling fan direction? in other words, should the air be directed towards the motor, or away?

Strangely enough, I'm getting conflicting responses on my side....

Appreciate!!

I have always run my fans blowing on the motor. I guess my question would be is do you put the fan in front of the motor next to the speedo of behind the motor??

Thanks for the info. I have mine in front of the motor.

According to my LHS, the fan show blow away from the motor much like how it's done on a car. Some people say that cooling is better this way. Just wondering whether anyone has done back to back testing....

Thanks again!!

Have a friend who did testing with telemetry on the best fan cooling position. He said that ideally the fan should be placed in front of the motor blowing into it. Can be up to 10-15 degrees cooler than from behind. Problem is with a brushless setup and the speedo in front of the motor, it's hard to get your 3 wire hookup from speedo to motor with the fan in between.
