is it easy to access the top motor mounting screw on the 416WE? on mine the topdeck has to be removed then when tunign the gear mesh you must use a very thin 2mm hex wrench?

There really shouldn't be a reason to remove that screw unless you stripped the hex out, keeping it there makes it so you have 1 less thing to lose while working on your car. I've been able to use numerous brands of hex wrenches to install motors in to my cars without any problems, I guess if your having issues with it a ball tip wrench would be the best bet.

Ricky, I skimmed through the arguing but pretty sure you don't have your answer...

As the name suggests, the roll centre is the centre point through which your chassis rolls. You will note that it says 0mm is ground level. Negative values are below ground level. Positive are above. Therefore a lower roll centre (ie larger negative values) will make the car roll more - and vice versa.

Where'd everyone go?? lol

I'm pretty excited for some news we got in the last couple weeks regarding racing out my way. Within 15 miles of my house there are 2 indoor on-road tracks opening up early next month, I'm pretty much dead in the middle of the 2 locations. One asphalt, one carpet. I'll finally get to practice as much as I want since I can go during the week!

Hi everyone

Apologies for posting this again, but I fear it may have got overlooked before since it was in the middle of a rather heated debate lol!

I am looking to buy a 416 WE kit, but having trouble locating anywhere with them in stock.

If anyone knows of any shops with them in stock, please could you let me know!

Any leads greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Still here, just been very busy, getting ready for the first national, and sorting out the gf before she spends three months on your side of the pond!
Had a practise meeting this weekend, and despite struggling a bit with tyre warm up issues (took two minutes or so for the balance too arrive!) Car was very good and made some good changes that should suit west london nicely...get to try them out this weekend coming changes involved going back to anti-dive on the front, and running more shims under the rear link, and that was about it!
Also tried out my new speedo, and have to say very impressed with the RB50 so far...shouldn't be lacking speed anywhere I hope

Cheers
Ed

I've been working on it, but slowly. Next month I'll have a couple weeks off from work and will be able to actually get into it during that time.

I'm assuming they will be a direct fit, guessing the 3 in the part number is 3mm which is what you need. One other o-ring you might want to try is Tamiya 42137 low friction TRF o-rings.

It seems borderline retarded at first, but Tamiya halting production of this kit at the peak of its demand might be a lesson other manufacturers could learn from. Just think how many hobby stores are sitting on old T2'xxx kits they'll never sell. Or maybe Tamiya just has no feel or care for its customers, which is my other Tamiya theory.
