Good question, I think maybe the original 417 deck with the rear cut

Hi guys,

I just bought a used Tamiya TRF 417X from a friend, the car feels amazing and I love it.
But I have one question, would it be possible to fit the V5 servo mount on the 417X? I wanna know if it could physicaly fit under the top deck? Forget about the extra holes on the chassis, I can take care of the drilling....
I know Smokem makes one for the 417X but I wanna use the car for TCS races in Canada and I wan't the car to be all Tamiya.
Thank you very much in advance for your time.

It depends on the traction level. A lot of indoor carpet "club" tracks have low to medium grip carpet. At my local track the carpet is low grip and the new servo holder made a pretty significant difference in low speed cornering.

LOL... You are right.. I was thinking of my area I guess. Most of our indoor carpet tracks are high bite, sometimes very high bite.

@Craig: Thankyou
If the track is "low bite" it frees up additional flex to the chassis. BUT, there are other things that you can do, springs, roll center, sways that will make a greater difference than a servo mount. If you are at the limit of your car setup, then I would try the servo mount last.

I think u have to make a hole for the tap on the servo mount, however its not round so i might be hard to make it fit proberly.

The mount looks cool, but I promise you. It won't make the car faster around the track. Basically what I'm saying is don't worry about it. Shoe goo it if your worried about equal flex. That will save even more weight.

Default loose off power suddenly

Currently have this issue suddenly on my 417x.

My car tends to loose off power. Running on a low traction asphalt.
Box set up with minimum changes. just out of sudden it's so loose.

following set up is what i did to make the car handle well.

box set up for WB except front upper camber link 2mm spacer, rear upper camber link 4mm. toe out 2.5 degree. Ackerman 1mm spacer. droop front 4 and rear 5.

I find that howcome the car handles so differently hence I revert back to box set up but the car handles the same.

Currently car set up is "box set up", what i only change is front inner block 1b, front upper camber link with 3mm spacer. Front toe out 1degree. camber 1degree front and rear 1degree. droop front 6 rear 5

Spool in front and 1000wt for the rear. Running on ride spring front yellow and rear white

The car is still very loose off power compared to last time


Wonder for RCA is it ok to run such a difference on the upper camber link. and ackerman. Or I shld as long as the car handles well, differences doesn't matter.
