And quite a bit darker.. Square has blue screws that look like they should match Tamiya.

I am about to put the short arms on my 416 and has a question. There are 2 sets of hole on the arm that are for the shocks and roll bar. (one set of holes is more outward than the others) How do I determine which set of holes are for the shocks?

Thanks.

Any of the holes can be used for the shocks, the arms can be flipped so that you have the option of making smaller adjustments. On my car, I'm running the outermost holes on the front, and 1 in from the outermost holes on the rear.

It's a nice feature, as now instead of 2 holes for adjustment, there are 4.

Well my new 416WE is running very nicely and was fast enough for pole position Friday night. But, as fate would have it, a few racing incidents and some back markers made the Main quite interesting. Eric Whipler passed me with 2 mins to go and all I could do was push hard. The car was excillent !
Will said my car was SICK ! Thats good right I cought up to the Whip but an off line excursion and another scary moment was too much for the 44mm aluminum swing shaft. Finished in 2nd with 3 wheel drive. Eric was driving fast as I've ever seen a 05IFS. Nice run BTW Whip! I'm praying the metal ones I ordered are here before next Friday.

which servo-saver are you guys using on your 416? I see many squares on the photo's and I heard that Kimbrough are also really good, but... which one do I have to take? There are so many types, not only Kimbrough but square makes also more than one...

Do you guys shim your spur gear assembly? Mine has lot of play, you can move it left,right. The instruction says to put one 0.2mm shim on each side of the shaft before you put the flanged bearings, I think its not enough or is it designed like that to have some play for whatever reason for it?

I use 3 shims on the left and 2 on the right side, all of 0,2mm. The spur has just a very little play and the belts are perfect in the middle. On the belt tensioner I use a extra 1mm shim and it looks all perfect now

I'm using the kit servo saver with the Tamiya aluminum horn.

Thanks, any more building tips? I just filed the front and rear edges of the upper deck as it seem to be a bit longer. I noticed this when I trial fit it with front, rear bulkhead and steering system assembled. Somehow I have force it into place. Now it fits nicely. Did you guys also filed the upper deck? I hope i made the right move.
