Is the new bumper any harder than the old one, or just bigger? An optional bumper that's harder than a wet sponge would be awesome.

What length CVD's should I be running with the short arms and a spool? I'm using 44's, but it seems like I'm destroying the spool inserts very easily.

Hi guys,

Next week (if Dutch customs still likes me) I'll be a proud owner of a TRF416 World Edition.
Based on the (building)experience with the 416, does anyone have some suggestions about the buildingprocess? Any points of attention?
Another thing: I ordered 44mm steel swing shafts as a spare(part#54078), but do these fit with the shorter suspension arms? Since it's not possible to download the 416WE manual, I couldn't find that information...

Thanks

I want those blue springs

Blue Sharpie markers are faster than any other color. I've tested them all.

Otherwise, who knows!
Jag 88 hit it right on the nose .. the screw is there because the motor is out of the car. They were only running 5 cells and this guy was running them in the forward position. If you look at your car you will see that you can take the motor screws out (atleast the bottom one that is) with batteries taped in the car.

Actually John, they were running 6 cell at the worlds... so it's not possible to get to the lower motor screw with them in place, as this pic shows
