Bummer! No 20 lapper for me and that was the last meet on that layout I wanted to try my setup from the nationals out at SMA but it didnt work that great. I think I know where I went wrong so I'll be back with some new stuff to try out next meet

The regular retail price could reach even 800 Euros. (which is 1000USD at the moment)

Many racers are buying the old 416 one and upgrade parts (2x 1C + 1x 1XA and 1x 1E + Evo5 Sus Arms + 44 St Swing Shafts + Spool + WE Belts) to get a cheap high performance car. You can even get a second rear brace and cut it. So you will have a oneway and the long sus arms in spare and save a lot of money. I think this is at the moment the best solution (and you don't have do wait for the WE).

But to have the full featured and full option pimped 416 you should buy the WE plus:
- VG Damper + Cup Joint Grease (Tamiya 42128 + 42129)
- Ti-Blue Turnbuckles + TRF Wrench (Tamiya 42116 - 42122)
- Ti & Blue Alu Screw Set (Square STM-74)
- Alu Servohorn for HT Servosaver (Square TGE-22TB)
- 1.2mm Damper Pistons (Square TGE-12P2)
- TRF Black Short Bumper
- Ceramic Diffballs (12 pcs)
- Diffcovers (RC Devil RC00018)
- 0 Rear Aluminum Hubs (Square STV-44MS)
- Front Blue Alu Knuckles (Square STV-35MS)
- Ti 46mm Suspension Shafts (Square STV-6C)
- Ti Wheel Axles (Square STV-50MSA)
- Ti Cross Joints for Drive Shafts (STV-50X)
- Blue TRF Damper Aluminum Retainers 1mm Down Type (Tamiya 538xx)
- Clear Blue Body Mounts Limited TRF
- Blue Servo Collars (Square SGE-19TB)
- Blue Snap Pins for Body (Square SGE-1TB)

and...

a Blue Aluminum Polished Steering Wheel for the transmitter (because your transmitter will be very annoyed not to be so blue like your 416 :-)
Could anybody then "Sakaguchinet" personally answer me if the WE is using short arms then insist using 44mm instead of 42mm axles, of course my favourite are Square TI ones, but really has in the stock?

Best regards

I think that depends on which uprights you use. (bearing size)
The larger bearings require the longer Axel. Not to be confused with the cvd.

Wait John, i have understood the question is not the people using 415 knuckles in this chassis, the matter is the old 416 use large arm, so the car could run 46mm axle with o-rings removed from the spool cups, isn't it?
I am just asking because i never had 416 chassis before, i am just measuring to have 1 with full option parts.

I'm out of town right now but when I get back home I'll whip something up for you guys.

I didn't realize you were running the Orion stuff now. The new ESC is awesome, feels like a Sphere TC but with more power, we ran it in 10.5 and mod and the power difference was crazy.
