I'm also thinking about getting the reedy chassis for the carpet season. On the other hand there's a new chassis by Tamiya themselves right around the corner (for the new 417 V5 version or whatever it will be called), which is also supposed to be stiffer.

Does anyone have some comparison information on those 2 chassis variants? I'd prefer facts of course, but am also interested in thoughts...

The 2.5 will still be the pick for carpet until a 2.5mm version of the new chassis is released. Not sure why it's being called the reedy chassis, Viktors setup sheet says 2mm deck and his chassis had no holes

I have found another that is a 72t designed properly for the 417.

See I need to get a 4.0 ratio for VTA racing down here and that is why the questions.

New to all this so it a learning process

I use the 2,25 with zero cuts on carpet, it almost have to much traction.
The car drives really great, I just have to learn to control it

Are you saying that you are using the new WX chassis?

oops srry the chassis is CSO-racing.
Unlike othes I don't have problem with the deck, mine has some thickness allover 2,25 mm.
My car is balanced too,

LF 320 RF 318

LR 350 RF 352

Car weight is 1350 gr.

Anyone know where I can buy a 417x? Preferably new but used will do as well. Or do I have to wait for the new 417wx?

Is it the item #TA-1005C from this page: http://www.cso.com.hk/htdocs/modules...ex.php?ncsn=27 or do you have the whole conversion kit #TA-1007C? They claim it's 2.2 mm, btw.

That one looks good too and it's quite inexpensive at rcmushroom...

Hi guys,

I'll post this here as if I go TC racing this'll be the car I use, do any clubs run mod these days or when getting setup will I basically need 10.5/13.5/17.5?

Do the cars come with a range of spurs/pinions or just one spur?

Finally, an actual 417 question, how does it go with 2 gear diffs? I know the new kit will come with a spool on the front but previously when running TC I always found a spool virtually undriveable so my preference will be to run 2 gear diffs!

Anyone try this servo mount yet? It's about $10 from RCMushroom.

Its absolutely Rubbish!
I bought one until the Tamiya Version is release, It came with three screw holes UN-tapped and it was already bent. I straightened it out, tapped the holes and did one run with it on my car then threw it in the bin!

13.5 boosted seems to be the popular class for clubs. Mod seems to have disappeared of the uk scene. Although they will run it at the BIWS this winter.

I use two gear diffs, and my 417 is fantastic. I dont like a spool, it is too agressive for my driving style. I use the TRF VG oil (no leaks). I run 2k in the front and 800 in the rear.

My car is excellent, loads of corner speed and predicable handling. (I am running 13.5 non boosted at my club as its quite a small track).

Thanks dude, I'm actually in the US now though! Good to hear on the gear diffs!
