Anyone have a low grip, carpet, set up for a 417? All I can find online are set ups for the 417X and 417v5. Also what are some of the things I can do the settle the rear end down? The car really wants to step out on me if I get too deep into the throttle or when coming out of turns it gets real twitchy.

The BIWS set-up is what I used on my 417 when we raced with no additive on rubbers, this gave me a car with good cornering.

This is great thanks! My current set up is close to this but I see a few things I could try, mainly I'm running the stock 1E rear suspension block and I see you were using 1D. Also just curious you don't have anything filled in for suspension mount spacers, does this mean you were not running any spacers at all?

Thanks

Anyone know an alternative to Tamiya's adjuster (ballcup) with already a hole for 2mm hex using existing Tamiya ball stud?

I know about using the exacto knife to slice the top off but seems like a lot of work when I can perhaps purchase other brands that will fit.

Use a body reamer, it makes a nice clean hole.

Yep, 0.5 all around, although I did 2 races with and two without them. I would try it with first (I'll update the sheet, cheers for letting me know)

Hey guys, here is my raceberry setup from AOC finale at Yatabe Arena. My car was fairly good so I set my sights on b-main but just missed out qualifying 21st. Finals were a bit forgettable but overall it was an unreal event!

Unfortunately tamiya was not in attendance because it was the same day as Kono's wedding

I just got a 417 V5 with the airation shocks. The piston feels tight. What shock type is every one using on carpet.

Did you actually run the aeration shocks? What was the reasoning behind different weight oils front/rear?

I did enjoy watching the racing on the 'net

HL shocks are the normal shocks

The harder rear oil is only for carpet I would say, it calms the car especially on power and gives more corner speed

Just inquiring on the use of a one way- front and or center spool.

How the front or the center one way change the behavior of the car?

One ways don't have as great an effect these days. With a brushless motors on zero drag brake, the car will roll into a corner like it used to do with one ways and brushed motors. You will also lose braking to the front wheels with one ways so if you hit the brakes hard, it will be like pulling on the handbrakes...
