its the tray designed for the TC5. i just gotta dremel some material off for the servo mount and the motor bulkhead support. i only use orion 3600/3800s. im gonna open them up, redrill the holes and flip them upside down so the feet are facing upwards.

I ended up pretty close to what Martin had. I believe he said it was close to one of Victor's setups. I will have to check them out and let you know. I didn't have a Speed 6 body and had different shock oil. I threw away a A-main run in the last round after putting a spool in and trying to figure out how to drive it. Car was good, driver failed.

I have spent a lot of time looking at both very closely...the answer is simple if you are going to run rubber tire buy the 416. It is such a beautiful car that performs like no other on rubber tire car out there. If you want a foam car the 416 might not be the best choice.

There seems to be three options:

3 Racing (0 & 1 degree):
http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....oducts_id=2464

Unknown:
http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....oducts_id=3369

Square:
http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....oducts_id=3912

I've been using the unknown version, since that's what was first available. It works well, though maybe just a tiny bit sloppy on the bearing tolerances.

Also, that Square bumper is the greatest thing ever. I spent a small fortune on spares for IIC and didn't break anything the entire weekend. RC MARKET, pls to be having more soon!
