I'll wait for the next model of it, just ran the new LiPo chassis on my X for the first time, wow it made a difference from the Demon kit I was using. Wasn't happy i have to start using tape for my batteries again tho.

Missing the brace above the steering, too much flex for me, and too easy to tweak the top deck in a hit. The chassis looks identical to the X LiPo chassis, maybe a few different holes. With the motor moving forward, weight coming away from the rear of the car means less rear grip.

415 to 416 was a big difference, 416 to 417 not much of one, almost the same amount of changes as the 416WE to the 416X, should just name it 416XX or something like that.

I would think that the 417 is designed more for lipo than 416 as for those who had that need to upgrade their existing chasis to a more lipo friendly one.

I don't think that moving the motor towards the center will reduce the rear grip as the weight of lipo compare to the older batt makes the car overall lighter so I think that move will not effect that much.

Having a solid motor mount does transfer most of the driving force of the brushless motor to the wheel.

Only my opinion.
