What length should the sway bar links be? It doesn't say in the manual.

Had my first race outing with my 416. Very drivable car: plenty of steering, tight back end, low tire wear rate, stayed very consistant throughout the 5 mins.

It performs quite a bit better than 415 and its diff is awesome.

Best thing is to make sure the sway bar is horizontal when he car is is in normal position. But you should check to make sure the sway bar won't hit the drive axle during corner so lift you suspension arms and check if it hits. If it doesn't it's ok, if it does you should make the links slightly longer so the sway bar will be a bit higher.

I know they dont but I know that they are suppused to be the same length and made to not bind up or crask into anything. Personally , I like to use shock ends and a 12mm grub screw. Looks good and its all Tamiya !

The only problem i had was tire choice in practice and the Slash drivers using my car as a ramp as they cut across the track on the straight
Well I'm glad it worked for you, I wouldn't think that it would have worked out there. At least I know I'll have a good starting setup for when I come down

that defeats one of the biggest improvements on the 416 tho... now you're back to running 950 bearings.

The aluminium uprights are available as hop-up part for the 416, in 0 and 1 degree I believe

curious why you guys are using that tray? a 3800 sized lipo with a ppdbillet tray fits into a 416 with a slight modification to the upper deck to allow for a bullet connector to pass through.

I'm fitting in 5000 packs with the PPD tray with no modifications to the upper deck, modifying the + terminal on the pack so I don't lose any of the upper deck's structure.

I used the PPD tray with the SMC4000s, but the new 5200 40C pack is too high, and the 3000 or 3200 or whatever the smaller one is would be cutting it close for 6 minutes of 10.5 racing
