The yokomo BD7 96t spur is also a good fit

I know the 418 uses the taller alloy ball studs but you can just add an extra 1mm shim to 53969 which have the hex head like the alloy ones. These steel ball studs are ALL I run in alloy parts like bulkheads and steering arms & rack on my Raceberry 417:

Get the fluorine coated hex balls. Only a small extra cost (200yen RRP)

I had already swapped out the kit ball studs for the fluorine studs (54208) which don't have the 1mm built in spacer.

Is there a way you convert you 417x to 418?

Not economically I expect. They don't really share many chassis/suspension parts in reality from what I can gather. Lots of little minor/medium changes. Most are interchangeable though.

Good portion of the driveline (diffs, driveshafts) are same or very close.

Suspension is all new for the 418, but connection points and geometry are unchanged.

to convert your 417 to a 418 you'll practically have to buy everything from the chassis and topdeck, all the aluminum bulkheads, steering arms, and all the overhangs (arms, uprights and hubs). not to mention the swaybar parts (which are not yet available) and shock spring adjustment collars if you have ocd. .


most cost efficient way is to get a Smokem/Raceberry conversion kit for the 417 and slap on the 418 suspension bits... not quite a 418 but close.

I just had a quick look at the manuals....

I reckon you could keep bearings, turnbuckles, ball cups and hex balls and about 85% of the screws - plus the rear diff and both sets of driveshafts but that is about it!

even the spool is new!

The suspension blocks too...

They are just new stronger revision with the same geometry.

Just add more shims until there is no play but the assembly still spins freely... I think I have 0.1 extra in there.

Well in that case you might as well use the arms as well!

I can't imagine too many people rushing to buy the new blocks when they become available to replace their old stash!

There is a downgrade too - the suspension are shafts are no longer the Ti coated ones!
