Hi Hugo,

All the top deck screws are 3x6mm. Part # from the manual is TAM9804212. I'm not sure you'll be able to order them too easily though, might have to be a special order item (it's a 7digit part#).

HiH

Yeah - I can't post pics anymore either? I even cleared out the 2 MB of pics that I have posted online to see of that would help.

Check your PM for my e-mail. Thanks in advance for helping me out.

Most are using the LRP Sphere TC Spec. Seems to be the most popular choice atm.

Isn't Jiles Grosscamp and Viktor Wilke sponsored by Speed Passion? I'm not sure but I thought I heard something about that. I know I seen the new ESC and all the adjustablilties including timing, drag brake ,etc.etc.

Looks very impressive. The rest of the brushless systems are going to play catch up with this designed ESC.

They are for motors, but I've yet to see a pic of the cars with a SP speedo...
GT does look interesting though.

Hi Guys,

I'm planning on buying a 416 at the end of the month. Was just wondering what spares I should buy with it and what option parts are worthwhile. I'll be racing 5 cell modified so want to get the car as light as possible & I'll also be running on a variety of tracks so I'll need handling options. So far I've spotted the titanium screw set and the 1pc front axel, and I'll probably need a spring set (though I have the xray ultimate set) and the rear toe plates.

Also if you guys have any building tips that would be great

Cheers,
Craig

The fit and finish of the Square c-hubs and front knuckles is superb. I'm not sure who makes those aluminum rear uprights, but they too are very nice. I love the extra hole, it might come in handy.

Now I need to figure out what (if anything) will break instead of the pieces I updated. Maybe I'll end up going back to the composites. Weight isn't an issue generally, since I can move things around with LiPo, but I'd hate to break something I don't have many spares of, like hinge pins. I guess we'll see.

Definately get some aluminum Chubs. Whether it be 3Racing or Square. 3Racing seems to lighter with less strength than the Square ones. They are $12 a pair vs $30 a pair for the Square units. I currently run the 3Racing ones with no problems what so ever. Although I think my friend bent his. The kit Chubs are firm and seem to be the weak link in the car. Scroll back several pages and you'll see pics I posted of the 3Racing Chubs on my car.

I would also buy the EvoV or LW Short arm set. That's all I run right now. The LW Long might be better for low traction tracks. Everything else I would use LWS.

Of course pick up spare spindles and rear hubs. I do not see the need for aluminum hubs. But if that's your thing, go for it. The extra hole might be nice. But I prefer a lighter suspension. And get some spare inner hinge pins.

One nice thing to have too is spare steering tie~rods. They can bend or break easy in a wreck. Switch to Ti ones if you can. Or just carry a spare set with you.

Thats all you really need. Maybe a spare bumper with extra body posts. And some different suspension blocks. 1E, 1D (416 version if you can), 1C (maybe 2), 1XA. You can even get a spare 1B (416 version) and 1A (416 version) if you want.

Get the spool when it comes out for Mod along with some spare outdrives for the spool. And get some steel bones for the front. The kit is all aluminum bones. I run 46mm EvoIV steel bones up front with my MRE spool.

Springs, what ever you want. I run Tamiya, Hara, HPI, XRay, and AE springs.

Also visit TryHards website for the "Need to know" section on the 416.
