Hi, That effect is achieved by varying the position of the battery? The rearward position is the original 416, but if you put the brackets must be put in the position advanced.

Thanks and regards

thank you for your help...
I've cut the mount and I'll be trying it out tomorrow afternoon. Hope it works.

Alternatively, you may try soft shock oil and spring and more flex...

cheerios.

Wondering if someone on this thread runs
Spectrum dx3r pro
Hitec servo 7965mg
Kit servo saver

I'm having an issue where either the horn realigns itself or the servo (which is brand new) does, while driving. And not necessarily with me hitting anything or anyone. It happens within the first couple of laps and pretty much ruins the rest of the race.

I have been told to switch servo savers as the kit one is a bit unstable but I am pretty sure this is no different to the 416we and this has never happened to me before. However I am using different electrics.

So hoping can guide me down the right path before I go spend a bunch of needless cash.

Definitely try a new servo saver, and make sure you have the proper adapter for your servo splines in the saver.

You can try the Kimbrough one, lots of great feedback on it being an upgrade.

Can someone tell me if the arms, hubs, cvds, etc, are the same for 417 compared to the 416we?

Had a race last weekend but the track was kinda bumpy and I stripped two spur gears. It could be due to the loose motor screws or could be due to the cut mount. Anyway, the car don't really feel nice at this track after tihe motor mount is cut. Will try at another track and see how it felt.

I wouldn't recommend you to cut the mount unless u got spares mount lying around. Not sure if we could use the 416 mounts on the 7.
