Thanks! Very similar to the buggy shocks, what colour are the orings?

Would you mind writing down the kit setup? We know the blocks but I'm wondering what wheelbase, ackerman, bump steer, shock angle, camber link shims etc.

My kit will hopefully arrive tomorrow

Interesting.....no diaphragm for the shocks...

I wonder if it will be as easy to set these shocks up with no rebound.

Running 17.5 blinky on crc ozite.

My question is at the time I am running C blocks in the front with 1 mm anti-dive.
White will be the effect if I go to D blocks in front. Will it reduce even more the front end aggresiveness? I am just woundering if buying the D blocks is worth while or should I just make another change to reduce steering?

The reason I am asking I see setup sheets online with factory drivers running D blocks up front.

Nothing new. Yokomo and Associated has done it before with their touring cars.

Does 417 V5 share the same upper deck & main chassis as previous 417 kit?

No, Both are new. The new v5 Top deck and bottom deck can be used on the previous 417 models though.

I don't know myself. I think for more tuning options. Maybe someone can tell us. Here are pictures of a Team Associated TC3 shock and a Yokomo MR4TC shocks with no bladders.

It's here! I'm not sure what the bonus parts are because I can't see anything extra. I can only assume they will release a a cheaper "non-premium package" that won't include DCJs and some of the other bling from the WC cars.



Time to get building

Cool, enjoy it.

Did it perhaps come with a body?

If not, any reason you can see why it came in a standard size kit box instead of the usual 417 slim box?
