The SMC 50C fits in this car nicely. Hopefully it doesn't swell (slightly) like the 40C's, otherwise it gets to be more of a hassle.

Mine has no slop. Maybe the slop came from the servo saver which after some hits will create slops.

OK, I just ordered up a WE. Normally I'm one to read a whole thread when I get something new but I've read far enough back to make my eyes bleed so I'm calling that good.

I've got TryHard's site and that answered 95% of my questions.

It sounds like my ThunderPower 5000 40C packs will fit. I plan on getting a ppd lipo plate (just the bottom).

Any chance the Diggity brace or one like it will fit the WE? Any other way to fit a battery hold-down or should I just tape?

Thanks!

Parts is hard to fine on most of the online site, where do most of the racers buy there parts? I tried rc mart, rc market, rc mushroom and our LHS and no one seem to carry the 416we parts any suggestion?

This shop here in Switzerland is good (they get all you need if you are not wanting to go to RC Market etc yourself, BTW RC Champ is really good)

Also, this shop in Finland is good on Tamiya 416

Thanks...good ol' tape it is then. Do you still recommend the ppd lipo plate? My packs don't have the bumps on the bottom so I presume I need something to locate them laterally.

What about this one:

What's up everyone. Sorry I haven't been on much lately to check up and answer questions, been working on some projects that will be coming around very soon! Incase anyone does have 416 related questions and aren't finding the answers in the thread feel free to pm me as I still check those daily.

Hope everyone's racing is going well!

i think all is rosey in the TRF416 camp

we have had a lot of rain here in holland lately and there was a 1:5 race last weekend at our track so we couldnt train and now the track is full of small balls of rubber from the 1:5 tyres so no one wants to train at the moment

i am building a new indoor track above my work and it will be finished in a couple of weeks for all the dutch and European people who want some dry training this winter

Rebound is the amount the shock pushes out after it is squashed in without the spring on it

i ALWAYS build mine as Jilles does with no rebound

this is quite hard to do without getting air into the shock but what i do is fill the shock and remove the air as you would normally , then i push the shock shaft 3/4 to 4/5th up the shock , place the rubber bladder on and press carfully but firmly on the bladder with a 2.5mm allen key to get the air out , then without the foam insert in i screw the top on and check to see how far the shock pushes out
