What are the advantages of HPI/Ride springs?
+ one more question. The manual has a odd way of giving droop settings so what is a decent starting point for droop?

This setup is for the original 417 but works for the 417x as well. It works really good, easy to drive and is very close to what I run. It works almost everywhere on asphalt and carpet with only spring and oil changes necessary. I use the stock toe blocks in the rear as opposed to the ones listed on the setup sheet.

Sorry - 417x

Kit is 4mm front and rear for droop, start with maybe 5mm front 4mm rear for low grip and tune from there. You'll have more grip and corner speed with the ride or HPI springs, the tamiya's are mainly used on carpet

Hi, does anyone have a medium grip carpet setup for the 417x? The track is 4 carpet rolls almost rolled out. I'm running 17.5 blinky.
Thanks

getting ready to build my v5. I have a bag of Steel Bevel Gears - For TA06 Gear Diff Unit
Item #54428. Good idea, bad idea or doesn't matter. Thinking of running a 10.5 LRP x20 motor. I'm not racing, just an enthusiast. I crash plenty... so reliability is more important to me than speed

I just put the steel beveled gears in my 417X about three race weeks ago and so far working great no issues. I've gone thru about 3 sets of the reinforced plastic gears since the 417X first came out so I was glad when Tamiya fixed this problem. Mostly ran 13.5 and 17.5.
Just my 2$

Just ran my 417 today and wow what an awesome car. I Tq'ed and won the stock class. Great handling still need to work out a few things but overall very satisfied with it. Can't wait to get to run it on the Tamiya America track!

Hi guys just remembered. To take the movement out of the shocker piston is to bend e-clip a little.

Is the TAMIYA track open or closed for winter?

Just did up a Ferrari body that I had laying around.
