Depending on how tight\technical the layout is a one-way will still work, if there are plenty of braking zones for mod then a spool or diff will be best.

Sage the car will take any gearing format you want to use, so you can use your current stock of gears.

If you get the original 416 then the suspension arms are the same but the 416 uses 10x5 bearings in the hubs where the 415 uses 9x5 bearings in the hubs.

If you get the 416 W.E. then you won't be able to carry anything over because it comes with the short lightweight arms.

Ricky you could always do the short arm conversion on your 415, I hear it has a pretty good effect on the car...yes I will be doing the conversion on my 415.

Sage if you're going to run mod then yes, you'll need spare belts and pulleys, always make sure your pulleys are in good shape especially the centers otherwise you're just going to tear through belts.
