Yes and no. The servo sits far forward, and just hits the steeringpost. You can resolve this by sanding the tabs on the servo. The mount can only be secured with 2 of the 3 screws, which is fine on asphalt. I have noticed that on carpet the servo shift when you hit the border, so I have removed it for the carpet season

If anyone is looking for some good value bearings, the arena economic rubber sealed bearings from rc market are awesome. $11 for bearings for the whole car apart from the centre shaft and they are as smooth and long lasting as all but the best ceramics

First time I tried it on asphalt it moved about so I chucked it in the bin straight away

Hey craig,

Good morning guys,

I put dbl-joints up front on my 416X, they are 44mm since then I keep breaking those plastic blades in the outdrives, should I change to 46mm bones for my dbl joints?

Thanks

Hi guys,

Drivetrain wise other than the new gear diff outdrives it looks like the new V5 package is the same as the 417X?

If so, what driveshaft upgrades are required/desirable, I remember my last trf came with Ali front driveshafts that needed swapping to (longer?) steel ones, are the double joint cardan ones now the "top spec" option? Theta r snot standard are they? What length front and rear are required?

I spoke to him at the ETS rd1 in Germany and his car was the "old" 417x. I couldnīt see any new option parts. He said it is the same car from the ETS race in Poland.

Nope i just run them. They feel a bit heavy until the seal is broken in

The new car comes with 44mm DCJs front and 44mm alu unis rear, so no need to change anything

Thanks for the quick response, don't suppose you noticed whether he was running the split mounts or the solid suspension mounts on his car, the setup sheet is a little confusing in that respect.

Out of all of the spool cups ive seen/tried, the new Roche ones are the best. The new ones are longer so there are no issues with the 44mm driveshafts. The Arena ones are also good, and great value as they come with 4 slots in each
