Ah okay, that sort of makes sense about the braking.

What got me curious was reading a article about one ways. The article was dated around 2007. The author showed with a good setup, the front one way can be used quite effectively.

I wasn't sure if anyone uses them today, or had the cars/motors changed that much?

Lots of people used to run one-way on foam carpet (as in the post). For rubber carpet and rubber asphalt no one uses them and they are illegal in some rules. That aside, even if you can get them to handle they are terrible for racing because you can't battle without brakes

No brakes would be a big problem.
Thanks Craig.

How often do you guys rebuild your shocks? I've noticed some oil around the Damper stays and piston rod ends so I'm wondering if after 2 months the seals need to be replaced?

From what I can tell it looks like the clear oil in the kit is 900 wt and the yellow is 400 wt, which do you use in the dampers?

Yellow in the shocks the 900 is for the diff. I would go thicker in the diff though. But if that's all you have, just use it

Just curious but how many of you with the base 417 kit cut the motor mount to add more flex to the overall feel of the car?

I installed the motor mount from the 417X, and it gives the car a little more flex as well. It also makes changing motor or pinion gear a lot easier with the 2 extra motor mounting holes.

Doesn't that option require drilling a hole in the lower deck?

No, it's a direct bolt-on.

Awesome thanks! There are 3 pieces to that set up correct, a left, right, and lower, do you use the lower?

Hi all, I just recently purchased the 417x used. I've been wanting to get a 417 variant for a while now. What I'm curious about is, what are all the 417 variants and what order do they go in?

My assumption is 417, 417 w/gear diffs, 417x, ?, 417 v5. Is this correct? And if so, what is the model where there is a question mark?

Also, what are the benefits of each upgraded model? Is there a major difference in handling from the 417 to 417x to the 417v5? Thanks, I know that is a lot of questions but I've searched online and within this forum and haven't found answers to these questions.

Same here, I wasn't really concerned about getting more grip, but I was NOT happy about the original motor mount when using 17.5 motors & small spurs, the 417X mount was by FAR the best way to deal with it....
