I use Xenon spur gears with my 417X, and have found that they are thinner in the centre section than the Tamiya spurs, and using the kit blue spacer alone isn't quite enough to prevent the spur from having a little side to side 'wobble'. I just bought another kit spacer (mine was from RCMarket http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....ducts_id=10301), put that on the opposite side of the spur, and that cured the wobble. I haven't seen the Panaracer spacer, but presume that will do exactly the same job.

Gotcha. either that or as Toon says, use a second Kit spacer. I must have been lucky with my spurs so far.

Now for an actual problem I have. First run the other night, it went really well (in 17.5 Blinky) with the kit settings but then developed a weird noise, possibly like bad gear mesh. Tonight I have a real close look and listen - sounds like the rear diff - pulled the diff apart and it had NO oil. Kit oil had all leaked out. It seems to be a fairly easy diff to build. Did I miss something basic. The seal still seems flat and in one piece. Did I just not get those 4 little screws clamped down hard enough?

I don't think they were very happy with their cars at ETS but Viktor's winning setup from the charity race in Scandiano is posted on his blog

Nope, it will not fit on the 416.

There are a couple of ways people tend to build the diff to get it leak free.

Here is one method: http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/tami...DiffalaMcPhee/

I do not use this method. I follow the video from Jilles Groskamp but use the TDX smart shim and Kyosho P5 o-rings. I also use AE green slime on the o-rings and paper gasket. Since building them like this I have 4 leak free diffs =]

Thanks Quantra. I'll remember those.

I may have found my diff 'noise' issue too. Not ashamed to say, maybe a learning experience for others too. Let's just say I'll double check the thickness of the shims I use next time Rebuild tonight. Test tomorrow. Hopefully that was the source of my leak too.

Default Metal bevel gears

Anyone switch over to the metal bevel gears? Building now and considering putting them in as I build.

About to pick a v5 up and will be running blinky 17.5. What spurs fit the car? Also are there any "must" upgrades or is the car pretty much ready to go?

Yeah I reckon they're awesome. Haven't touched my diff since building it with metal gears, TDX shims, and kyosho o-rings. It's finally the diff we all wanted
