Maybe time for a new thread for the 417 now that we know the car is coming and the first pictures are published in Japan...

2012 season???? That's soon:weird:

Looks like a 416 with the lipo kit, whats new?

Following Tamiya's naming conventions, i would be EXTREMELY surprised if they tried to pass that off as a 417.
More like a TRF 416 WEXYZ

No that's more marketing stuff!
They said: "Ready for the 2012's championship"

From the TRF Twitter feed:

"TRF417 integrated motor mount, the new ball differential Center, 19T, and adopt a common front and rear bulkhead. Battery Center has received outside the motor."

So, 20 years after the Avante, Tamiya decide to bring the centre diff back to electric!

EDIT Maybe I have misread the specs...

About the Item
-The chassis design is focused on weight distribution and high-traction characteristics, with *the new
maximum chassis weight rule in mind. *The 2012 world championship regulations state that the Max.
chassis weight will be restricted to 1,350g. (1,450g in 2010).
-The TRF417 has an optimized chassis layout for high-power lithium batteries and brushless motors.
-One-piece aluminum motor mount offers extra strength and durability to handle high-power motors,
enabling transmission of the motor power to the drivetrain with minimal friction loss.
-Compared to the TRF416, the motor position has been moved about 2.0mm towards the center to keep high
traction during racing.
-By using a 19T pulley, the secondary gear reduction becomes 1.94, which is very close to the ideal rate
for brushless motors (2.0). With this, the car has less flexing resistance on drive belts and speed loss is
minimized when the throttle is off.
-Newly designed steering linkage is not connected to the upper deck, providing improved flexibility to hold
traction during cornering.
-Newly designed ball diff housing and plates provide extra durability.
-Identical front and rear bulkheads.
-Comes equipped with short reversible suspension arms and TRF416 uprights.

Newly Designed Parts
Front/Rear Carbon Damper Stays
Front/Rear Aluminum Bulkheads
Aluminum Motor Mount
Aluminum Center Shaft
Aluminum Diff Joint
Aluminum Steering Arms and Linkage
Diff Plates
Wheel Axle
Cross Joints
19T Pulley
Carbon Lower & Upper Decks (thicknesses TBA)

hope to get more pictures on the 417 soon.:nod:

veecee 09-08-2010 04:47 AM

That 1-piece motor/center-shaft mount would be worth a pretty penny! :eek:

KHoff7 09-08-2010 06:33 AM

Well that was a let down.

I remember looking at your 416X Experimental chassis. You used the the front bulkhead on the front and rear, as it looks like they will be doing with the 417. My questions is (without having my car in front of me) do the front bulkheads bolt onto the rear with the standard 416 mounting hole positions? Or did you customize that with your chassis?
