Is it worth buying the new 417V5?

Anyone know the part number of the new blades that come with the 417v5? Am planning to order some spares but don't have access to my manual at the moment. Thanks

Thats because the official date for release is later this month. HK / Europe has got their stock early.

Only as a special order partnumber still. Tamiya will probably release it as a normal spare part later which means supply will be better. For now though the car is so new you might struggle to find them yet.

#9224034 RC Swing Shaft Cap: 42240 - White

Here you can see all new special order parts listed:

Will add some more pictures of the finished car later and edit what needs editing but most of it there now. Hope some of you find it somewhat useful.

x2. I'm sure, being new to Tamiya, I'll have more questios as I go, but to start with - I'll also be putting a Gear Diff in the front. Is the existing Diff (42197) http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....ducts_id=11366 a direct drop in?

For the front diff I suggest picking up a set of the steel outdrives (#54425). This will let you run the diff without blades which get destroyed quickly up front.

Thanks Craig. Had just typed and posted a reply the same minute you did. I think that answered my next question.

Are you running on the carpet track at all? The putty diff up front was much better when I ran there last year. Just smoother and better rotation
