Neither. Check my pics a couple of pages back and discussions around them. I think the manual is also posted a few pages back too that you can see them in.

Ok, thank you. But with which chassis did you try it? The 417x original one?

Questions?? V5

In the process of building my V5 - just wanted to confirm that you don't ream out the suspension arms to make them move more easily? Thanks

Correct, do not ream the arms. I use 0.75mm spacer in place of 1mm spacer on each hinge pin, otherwise you can sand the arm to get the correct play. If you haven't already done so, check out the Pro Tips with Jilles Groskamp videos on youtube/redrc. They are for the 416 but most stuff is the same on the new car

My rear arms were a bit tight. Was considering reaming, but on recommendation from Craig, all I did was reduced one of the hinge pin shims by about 0.2mm and it freed it up beautifully.

Funny that everyone has the same problem with the suspension arms and having to drop the shim sizes......hope Tamiya is reading and corrects this. Not nice to have to go and spend more money on shims when you have already spend a pretty penny on the worlds best chassis! I know it says in the instructions that it will require shimming and filing as it for experienced racers but the original fit is rediculously tight.

Anyway all sorted after dropping a shim size as mentioned by CraigM.

I did however have to file the inner part of the rear suspension arms on the outer hub side (using the 2 x 0.5mm shims either side of the hub). I could have done the hub but the hubs are usually replaced more frequently so decided against it. Anyone else notice this or did I get a crappy batch of arms?

oh BTW.....I really enjoyed building the shocks !!

Not sure if it was because they were new (compared to the usual TRF's) but I found they really went together well with no mess at all!

If you crash, the aluminum may have a slight bend. You will not be able to tell and your car might have a slight tweak. It's nice bling though.

Yes, I filed mine a little bit to get the hubs to move freely.

Had my maiden run with the V5 this evening (just a timed practice session) and posted my best time ever . Does feel quite a bit sharper than my 417X, so looking forward to the year's first meet in a little over two weeks time.

Hi, do Tamiya make any 6 or 7 degree c-hubs? Carbon/plastic would be prefferred over any aftermarket alu ones.

If you have part numbers that would be great.

Thanks,
Chris

No tamiya don't make a 6 deg hub. I believe some people "encouraged" a 6 deg xray hub into the 416 so you could try that. Out of interest, why do you think you need more castor?

Hey guys,
My v5 topdeck snapped accros the red mark on the other side where I have the wheel spacer keeping it together

Since they arent seperately avaliable yet, which top deck out of the "x" , 417, and 417 with cut front brace would be the most appropriate replacement until the v5 top decks are released ?
