The Evo6 shocks are definitely larger.

I have one of everything else but the 418 shocks. Tb04, mini, 417, black, you name it.

Same as me, even have the aerated ones

As mentioned the 419 shocks have more internal volume, the plastic piston top is larger to match. Its all internal so you will still be able to use the same springs retainers etc.

Its a very nice kit, has pretty much everything you want in the box..unless you want blue screws... and we all want them

419 has different pistons and shaft retainer for sure.

My rear diff leaked for first 5 runs.. Will need to check next race to see if it continues. The new. Diff also uses new sized gasket which I don't have yet...

Does the diff still use the stupid little self tapper screws that are supposed to be 1.5mm hex but no 1.5mm hex drive - except for the crap one included in the kit or one that is worn to buggery - fits into?

Those damn screws suck!!

Yesterday I was on a new carpet track with Marc's setup. I drove like soap and my diff was also leaking.

Wonder if the trusty orange Kyosho o-rings will work in the 419 diff. I haven't had a leaky diff on my 418 & 417 for two years.

Anyone track tested the 419 on asphalt yet? Any feedback?

Does the 419 diff fits nicely on the 418?

Hi,

here is my setup from ETS Hrotovice (CZ):
http://www.rc-square.de/downloads/20...-Hrotovice.pdf

I have to say, that the new Diff is really good. Just built like the manual says, and only 1x refilled on saturday evening. So much more durable (mechanically).

The feel of the car was good. Very similar to my 418IIX. Had no direct comparison, as I drove the 419 in Mod and the IIX in Stock.

From setup point of view no experiments were done. I've played around with different wheelbases and a bit with the ackermann steering spacer (ended up with 0.5mm). The motormount was fixed centrally (with one screw in front and rear). Basically Marc and Viktor were also driving this setup (only difference: The Alloy Lowerdeck - which was reportedly more easy to drive on that conditions).

Important: All my setups are based on the "old" 5mm ball connectors (which are, compared to the 418/419 ones 1mm down type).

Thank you Dai for your Setup Sheet and your Tip with one screw for the Motor Mount

As always, I have a video made by the new 419 on youtube:

Simmi, couple of queries

Why the roche cups - aren't the new ones blade free? Didn't want to try them?

Shorter turnbuckles are an oddity. I was thinking of grabbing a BD7 (Lunsford) kit to use, the equivalent are all slightly shorter than typical Tamiya as well.

What screws have you used - your button heads all have a little lip?

Did the 419 new kit come with the body post blue mounts?
