I did find this http://supertec.wordpress.com/2010/0...e-2010-update/

If I remember correctly the 417 motor mount was promoted as being thinner by 1mm + to move the motor closer to center than it was on the 416 chassis. So we are talking about moving it in even more than that.

Craig M, where does the Yokomo motor mount place the motor compared to the V5 Tamiya mount in relation to the center line of the chassis?

Awesome! Thanks!

As for those yokomo parts do we have a list of which ones they are? Do you have to run their belts? Will they work with the stock chassis?

Jay can you repost that west coast set up?

Try clicking on each highlighted box. It will display what the setting is for that item. Won't however, stay open if you click on the next item. If you go to PetitRC.com in another folder, you can transfer the setting info to it by clicking back and forth and print it.

I don't know the exact details but it is markedly closer to the centre, I think further than you will be able to achieve with the standard mount even with milling. The motor is a lot further forward with the raceberry conversion too.

I'm not sure about this modification TBH. I remember seeing a video of Hara talking about the new TCXX and he said they had better results moving the motor further out compared to the TCX

It's fine on my laptop, but I have that problem on iPad with the editable sheets. Maybe Jay can save as jpeg?

Someone was nice enough to put it on petitrc.com for me. I am traveling at the moment so that will be the bet way to see it. I you have questions about it feel free to ask.

Only $60 from Speedtech just the deck will be stiffer at 2.5mm thick vs. 2.25 for stock 417x chassis. http://www.speedtechhobbies.com/inde...roduct_id=2201


The V5 chassis plate is available for about $80 but it will also be a little stiffer than your 417x chassis plate was, and you will need the $30 TRF center servo mount too or some shoe goo to mount your servo. Lots of choices!!
Is the reedy chassis good for medium grip carpet and asphalt? How does one determine which thickness chassis plate will work on different track conditions?

Hi, Can someone confirm the difference between the PRS spurs http://banzaihobby.com/radio-control...-spur-gear-64p
and the VSS spurs http://banzaihobby.com/radio-control...-64p-spur-gear[/QUOTE]

They look the same to me

Hi,
I went last year and raced my TA06. This year I am looking to make it out there
with my 415 V5. I am very familiar with the area and the track. I have raced there several times.This race is a blast if you are really into touring car racing.
Best,
John
