I had some good success with the 2.5mm chassis on asphalt, but it was track dependent. It actually gave the car more grip, but also more understeer. I think the V5 chassis is the best if you where after a new one.

Cheers,

Thanks for the info. Yes I do want to get a new chassis, now with the V5 chassis do I have to get all new bulkheads too?

Thanks Tiko

I have a 417 with 417x top deck and chassis I was wondering about the motor mount should I cut the stock 417 motor mount or leave it alone, ill be running on med grip asphalt or should I just convert it to the v5 with top deck chassis and servo mount and motor mount, or is another option the Raceberry kit. Also if I cut the mount does anybody know exactly I should cut it? Thanks

On the previous question about the split block spacers could I just run .5 flat washers on either side vs the actual Tamiya spacers??

cut it down the middle of the bridge that joins the two sides, search this thread there are pics. You don't need the new motor mount for the v5 chassis, the old mount fits you just need to raise all of your bulkheads 0.5mm. Raceberry is better again, go the soft conversion for med grip

That works fine, but the new spacers make it easier if you are changing roll centre or blocks frequently

Does anyone have a tape free method of securing the battery that they can share. Im trying to do something like reflex racing did for the rsd6. I could use some ideas.

On the TRF 417 PDF editable spreadsheet, where are the axle degree parameters measured?

"Front Axle" 2 or 4 degrees
"Rear Axle" ___ degrees
