They are referring to the 20t pulleys on the shaft. (replacing the 19t ones from the 417)

I'm sure that's just their way of saying they're out of stock and on backorder. The car isn't discontinued lol. Can't be

I'm frequent Tamiya's site.. usually when something is out of stock it says out of stock. Most likely its an error of some sort.. unless the initial kits with the extra parts have a different part number and the standard kits will have another..

In any case, I will be buying this from the likes of Banzai or RCmart when they restock it.. after 10 long months of being a free agent (aka unemployed) I received a firm job offer. This will be my self congratulatory gift.. I feel its well deserved.

The kits without parts being a different part number is probably the most logical explanation. Didnt even thibk about that

Apart from the two types in the kit, are there any more roll bars that we can fit on the 418? the 417 ones do not fit.

Type in the code "rctech10" and get 10% off. It may even be the December kits with bonus parts, I don't know. This offer is good till the end of the month.

Thanks, I had a feeling that was what they meant but the wording was suspicious. Why not call it a 20 tooth pulley? Perhaps lost in translation. LOL

How many degrees of steering throw are you guys getting? I'm currently set up with one degree of positive toe and I'm getting 14 degrees equal throw without touching the radio settings. I'm using a Savox steering servo.

Can somebody help me out here. I got the car finalized. I'm running a bls551 with the kit servo horn. I'm not getting equal throw both directions nor am I getting maximum throw available with dual rate and epa turned up. Do I need to offset the horn? Move the link to a different hole on the horn? Try a different horn completely? I'm confused
