Thanks though. I think Banzai Hobby might have them in stock. Checking with them but they are closed from Dec 28, 2013 to January 6th, 2014 for their holidays. Hopefully I'll hear back this week if they have them in stock.

The shocktowers are currently in stock and sold through the following site:

Default Smokem LX Steering Arms

Hy there!

Have anyone tried the 2mm longer Smokem LX Steering Arms?
Is it worth to try them out?

Greetings Rainer

Hey Rainer, I have the LX arms built into my car. I bought them to gain a more linear steering, because I think that all those different radiuses in the steering assembly (servo arm, steering arms, steering knuckles) can't be good. Now at least my servo arm and my steering arms are the same length and the difference to the knuckles is a bit less.

Unfortunately I have no "home track" where I practice regularly, so I can't deliver any "hard data" on the effect of the arms compared to the tamiya arms. All I can say is that - at least - the car feels just as good if not a bit better. Also the build quality of the arms is great and on par with the tamiya parts.

Christian

Has anyone tried the 418 lower chassis on a 417 yet? (high grip carpet)
Besides the floating servo mount, the 418 chassis would be a direct swap onto a 417x wouldn't it? Are the steering arm screws in the same location?

SS LS1, I just went over to my box I took my 417v5 and layed it on my 418 and all the chassis holes are in the same locations. get a floating servo mount and you will have 417 1/2.

I have a V5 chassis and the motor mount from the 418 does not fit. The holes are just a bit shorter. It will fit with a slight mod.

Thanks Vivo! I currently have the Smokem 417v7 motor mount, upper deck and floating servo mount on my sedan. Was hoping I could just swap them over to a 418 chassis plate. Sounds like it will work out nicely.

I have also a 418 on my wrenching table, and the motor mount, bulkhead screws are different! So no dircet fit!

What kind of mod would be required? Elongating 2 holes and chamfering them to accept the countersink screws? Wonder if the 417x belts would work then?

Default Roche DCJ outdrive length?

Hey ya'll
wondering about the Mr. Roche 417 DCJ bone length? Is it 44 or 46mm? I ask because I am looking for a DCJ to work with the plastic TA06 54544 direct cup spool outdrives which I believe are 2mm shorter per side, on my 417. I have never seen a length listed and I've heard good things about Roche DCJs.

Yes exactly. You might as well buy a 418 if you want that stuff to fit nicely.

Thanks for the response. Do you happen to know the Tamiya DCJ length? Again since the TA06 plastic spool outdrives are clearly shorter my guess is 46mm will be necessary. I like the idea of the TA06 outdrives for blinky 17.5 as they are much lighter AND use the wider V5 white blades. Combine those with the (lighter) 418 spool and it seems like a perfect combo for blinky.
