They are nice to be able to take one side off with out having to remove the other and you get 2 for the price of one. Unless you get the 1X block like the one I just ordered.

The split blocks are really nice in the F/R position. They seem like they'll be less prone to bending as well. It's a little bit harder to shim them, though.

Hey

I got my new ride 416 WE and only one thing is confusion

Sorry if that discussion before, but i`d like to see pic how you make your wires with LRP 5300 lipo, because it goes under upperdeck and there is no room minus wire.

Thnx

I'm sure there will be new shims soon. Tamiya are very good squeezing $$$ from us. But can't complain too much, the car is still pretty much the same since its release in Dec '07.

Re the Lipo, i think most guys here use a Lipo tray to shift the battery out a bit. Im guessing that the 417 would be more Lipo friendly when it is designed.

How is the car not LiPo friendly? The top deck is the perfect height to accommodate the typical size LiPo, which was pretty obviously an intentional choice at a time when other companies were convinced slamming the top deck was where it's at, even though NiMH was already in steep decline.

Though I guess you guys overseas have rules stating you must run internal plugs? If that's the case, I can see where it would be a hassle. If they let you use plugs, packs like those by SMC are perfect, 'cause the balancing tap and power plug exit the same corner.

The black pulleys are dialed! I put them on my new WE car. Now, black gears for middle pulley would totally get it right.

Click on the add above this forum for Li Po weights and get the one for the 416.
Problem solved. Mine was $51 shipped. I highly highly recommend one!

Do you have a part number for the 37t Black Pulleys or the 20t middle pulley?

I think it's still in testing, if you check the pictures from the Euro's all the TRF guys were running them. So maybe they're not too far from being released to the public.

Red bulkheads?

Were they running different diff pulleys with the 20t centre pulleys? maybe 40 like the Photon and BD5 to achieve a 2.0 internal ratio

The 416 really doesn't need any upgrades, it's an awesome piece of kit. The pulleys are a good idea because the 18t ones would wear pretty quickly in the faster classes. Compared to the TOP, the diff isn't quite as smooth, it's a bit more of a pain to change the ackerman and adjust the toe, and the xray style suspension blocks are a lot easier to adjust. None of that affects how it drives though, and the TRF shocks are light years ahead of anything else I've tried so I've got a set of black ones on the TOP. I also heard xray have been spotted testing tamiya style suspension blocks so the xray/TOP ones might be a thing of the past soon
