Nah, no need to wait. I plan on rebuilding the cars this week, so I'll get it posted. It's really not much different than what I was running with the X. Inner camber links are 3mm in the front and 4mm in the rear. Double gear diffs seems to work best for me. 2000cst in the rear, and OFNA diff lock (the kind in the round white tub) in the front.

the more the merrier!! The asphalt at the "c" seems to chew up foams depending on the compound, and i like the super fast part to run your 417 in mod, i was reading and they say there are a few things they changed to make it better for mod. Im gonna get one soon.

Ran the 417 for the first time tonight, I broke a C-hub getting greedy in the sweeper. No parts around here for the car so...can I use HB, xray or something for now?

BTW: The car handles very precisely, solid performer.

I'm not entirely sure but I'm told tamiya plastic parts and some hot bodies parts are compatable between the two car. Not sure though, haven't tried it.

Use the tamiya ISF caster blocks, they rarely break. They're a little flexy but work great.
