All (4) screws line up? What diff oil do you have in the rear? I hope Tamiya USA allows the lowered towers to be legal on the 417.

I've been checking petit rc for 17.5 blinky med grip carpet set ups and seen different shock oil brands used, trying to find a good starting in losi wt? I've seen and have all the conversion sheets for brands and cst to wt but some have muchmore listed also ....some charts are showing mm 450 equal to 50wt seems little heavy

What are the handling traits between stock undrilled shocks and those with caps drilled for aeration on this car? I bought mine used have the drilled shocks so I don't know if there is any benefit to switching to undrilled caps.

I used the 417 motor mount. Works fine with the YOKOMO gearing. What is SRP?

Has anyone got a good VTA (Vintage Touring) setup for the 417?

I have a 417 v5 with soft Raceberry chassis. The track I race on is low grip tight asphalt. I'm guessing a good start would be a low grip chassis setup from somewhere like Petit RC, but are there any other changes I should add to that?

If anyone has a 417 V5 chassis they would like to part with, please PM me. While testing for the upcoming TCS races managed to blow out the rear toe block screw . I guess worst case, I get a 418 if a V5 chassis cannot be found .

Thanks,
Jimmy

I have a used V5 chassis. The only thing is that I have to look for it(I know I have it). I would say the condition is 8/10. When do you need it by?
