I'm really not sure about the S1 as, like you said, no manual yet. TQ has them in stock so maybe they can tell us if it comes with ARBs.

You would need the little attachment fellow for the front/rear bulkhead you linked as well as the ball cups with the set screws and the wires themselves. I've not seen the wires for sale yet BUT, I'll bet that they are the exact same from the xRay T3. They attach in the exact same location only with a simplified design over Xrays (Basic ball cup instead of the double ended joint Xray uses., looks like it would be a direct fit IMO)

I am going to say that most likely the tamiya ones will fit. Not the long ones but there standard sized ones. But the spec r ones should be cheaper and they are the commonly used wire dia. 1.4 and 1.2 mm

I say tamiya because the suspension is tamiya based . The drivetrian is xray based . But the layshaft pulleys and spur mount is photon based.

+1 for that.

No one locally runs a 417/416 but there is a yokomo BD7 and a Xray T3 I think so I'll see if I can compare wires this Thursday, unless someone else has time before then.

Thanks guys, I see you can buy all the plastic ARB parts. The wires are the only question mark.

If all else fails, go to your hardware store / hobby shop and buy some music wire.

I'm sure Adrian knows that he's been around for quite a while on this hobby.

ReflexRacing.net and TQRCRacing.com both show it in stock.

I think Reflex got a new shipment this week, They are local for me so I have to support my local business! Granted, you can't go wrong with either shop, (Christian at Reflex is the shipping MAN however and usually stuff is in the mail the same day you order it.)

Welcome to the fold! You won't be disappointed! Jeff linked his updated setup a couple of pages back and it's damn good.

Mine is slightly different as I run asphalt and he runs carpet but it's a great setup regardless. I'm thrilled with the car and I was running some worn out Sweep 36's.

I'm going to switch to the RSD soft bladders and some AE 37.5WT oil this week and try to replace my ball cups with some AE/Tamiya units to remove a bit of the slop the kit cups bring. Also managed to get the flanged bearings for the lay shaft, waiting on them to come in so I can remove the 15 shims and crap I've got in there now.

Did you ever make a new layshaft setup Jeff? I'd love pictures, etc.

no not yet. i plan on getting started on a new quick release layshaft setup within the next couple weeks. i will probably have it modeled in solidworks by middle of the week and try to machine some up to test out shortly after that. also thinking of some other things as well. Another idea would be to make new bearing cams to give the ability to change diff hieght.
