yah i dont race any mod so no real need to stay with the 416. dont get me wrong. its the best 41x car ive driven. fits my style real well. just want to try the evoVMS since it has evolved with the 416 steering and easier spur gear access.

Thanks.
why not invest in the top deck..and you'll be near 416WCE spec already. top deck is only $20 or so?

That's exactly what I'm going to do. Haven't seen many advantages yet. Here's what is new with the WE...where's the advantage?

* The carbon lower deck comes in the same thickness but has a new battery position. I use lipos..doesn't matter where the holes are.

* The carbon upper deck is integrated with the rear upper brace for improved flexibility. This I'll buy separately

* The new motor mount also features redesigned sections and can provide excellent support to high spec motors. The fastest motor I run is 10.5...not sure if this will matter

* The large sized urethane bumper closes the gap between the chassis and body reducing battering. I glue foam pieces on the bumper to get the body to fit perfect

* New front and rear drive belts. Installed

* Short reversible suspension arms with reversed suspension mounts. Installed

* Front Direct Cup Installed

* Teflon sealed ball bearings. Aftermarket bearings installed

* High Lubrication Dampers. Installed

I still have my Evo IV/MS. But it tweaks too easy. Most of the racing I'll be doing locally will be either 17.5 or 13.5. I just love Tamiya shaft cars. Hmmm might have to go the TB03 route. But I don't wanna spend any more money on RC cars. Sucks...... jerk! j/k

the TB-03 is the SOLE reason im going to the evoVMS. with the evoVMS.. you have the revised bulkhead that came in the evoIV MS... 416 steering.. easy access spur gear. what else can i ask for?

and yup.. i only race 13.5 and 17.5 ill let you guys know once i get mine.

Nice to see a few 416's in the top 10... Alex Hagberg has seriously stepped it up in the last year though, impressive.
