And to answer your second question, yes, it is possible to use the 417X motor mount on an original 417, I have it on mine now(but it can be tricky joining the section of the mount together, kinda have to do it before mounting on the chassis, or just drill a hole in the original chassis to access that lower screw on the 417X mount)....

Thanks for the info guys. I have since given up on vta, and put everything back to 17.5 touring. LoL it worked excelent that way, so i am just gonna tweek and make that setup better. Our place.to race here local is changing, so new carpet is going in the new building soon, so im sure it will all be different. Supposed to be better traction than what we had. And easier on tires.

Default Trf418 arms and knuckles

Has anyone tried using the 418 arms, knuckles and hub carriers on the 417?

Yup, I'm still running mine, now with one of my old NSX bodies for USGT(our local track is small enough that 21.5 motors can run within a couple of tenths per lap of 17.5's, so most of us went ahead & switched over), Still running very strong....

And when Bob says "very strong", he means he kicks everyone's a$$ with it. Everyone except our local ex-sponsored guy, who Bob is still VERY competitive with.

I have been running a 417x for over 3 years now, they are great cars and can be right up there with good setup. The good thing is you can drop a lot of 418 and 419 parts straight in to help improve performance slightly, a bad point is some parts are getting hard to get hold of now.
Also note the new 419x has gone back to a bulkhead width the same as the 417 probably because it works.

Default Someone knows if this diff works on 417?

I found this and I think maybe would works fine in 417 but I'm not sure.
54471 TA06 STEEL GEAR DIFF UNIT - REAR
I'm searching for alternative to 417 diff unit v2 and this one or if the 419 diff works fine and for dimensions can mount maybe are best option.
What do you think?
