Default Bd7 2014 motor mount?

Had anybody with a Raceberry 417 attempted to fit the new 2014 Yokomo Bd7 (lower) motor mount and (single sided) layshaft mount into their Raceberry 417 chassis? Its tough to tell if they will fit without seeing the parts in person but I am quite curious.

I have a full Raceberry conversion and it does not look like it will work after comparing the 2013 & 2014 exploded view but I could always be wrong...

I didn't know that Yokomo have lowered the motor mount. All that really needs to be done is the vertical piece needs 1mm cut out of it to make it perfect with the rest of the 417 bulkheads

The motor height appears to be the same but its the "new style" half height mount that appears to mount with the two lowrst holes in the motor. Tamiya is a little slow in changing as quite a few cars have adopted this style mount--T4 14, Photon Ex, 14 BD7--probably some others I am missing.

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.
Well I was unable to find any online store that had the stock 417V5 chassis plate so I decided to order the Smokem 417FX chassis plate. So far, the customer service has been absolutely great and the response time has been phenomenal! I should have my order in the next few days. I can't wait to try the new chassis out

You'll have to adjust your wheelbase and ackerman spacers as the chub mounts 2-3mm further back on the front arms. Other than that, it should drop right in.

Yes, I built the front and rear A-arms, the steering knuckles and the rear uprights into my 417.

I can say, that the parts fitted perfectly (built according to the 418 manual) and the car feels very, very good, but unfortunately I cant' deliver any "hard data" (e.g. lap times), because I have no "home track" where I practice regularly and have reference times.

One thing that I found was, that to attach the 417 stabilizers to the rear A-arms I had to use the outermost hole in the arms, whereas the 418 manual shows the middle hole (there are 3). This is due to the 418 stabilizers having a different shape.

I did order the 418 stabilizers to test them, but didn't have time to try yet.

I'll be interested to see how people go with the 418 arms/uprights on the 417, especially if the 417 is running a Raceberry setup.

However I have enough arms, chubs and uprights to probably last me two years at the moment.

Hey guys, just checking to see if anyone has a used or spare lower deck (chassis plate) they want to sell for a 417x car? Looking for a good TRF 417x, 417v5 or a Smokem FX chassis for one of my cars. Less interested in the stiffer Reedy 2.5mm chassis plate. PM me if you have one available. Thanks!!

Can anyone tell me if the 418 shock towers are a direct bolt on to a 417x?

I think Harbor Hobbies has one on the parts wall. Give Eric a call at The Track to verify it is an X revision plate.

I have them on mine. 418 shock towers, 418 suspension, 418 sway bars, YOKOMO BD7 center gearing.
