If you've read any of this thread at all, you'll know the 42200 is a great car. All TRF's have been. They just keep getting better and better that's all. You really won't get any other answer posting in this thread. But, they'll still be plenty of people running the 417X, 417 even older 416's and 415s around the world. Unless you're fighting for the world championship, the slightly older car will be just fine.

If the Associated Green Slime doesn't work, then replace the Tamiya black o-rings with Kyosho orange o-rings (part# ORG05).... RC Market sell them
