(I'm not allowed to post links because i don't have enough post.Just delete the unneeded SPACE character after the http)
If i'm right that is a cooling thing for the motor,fresh air cames from under the car chassis and it is cooling the motor,so if someone knows the item number please tell me!
Thanks

Not sure if the motor runs cooler but it does provide a solid space to secure your speedo to and it's blue.

adding more shims to steering pushes the steering rods to forward = more parallel links=more twitchy car
that's right isn't it?
I don't like ultra responsive twitchy car, my xray is so easy to drive and very forgiving with 3th ankerman position which is angled...
5.5mm shims sounds a bit too much to me how many mm you guys recommend ??
thanx for all answers&advices

hey, how did you break the spool cup using 44mm CVD?
I broke one last week with the 44mm bone indoors
after a hard hit.

What kind of track are you running on? Mine exploded on carpet with boards. I was lucky to get more than a run out of them. Jilles suggested using 46's in his videos, so presumably we're not the only ones that have experienced the issue.

Are there any tracks near Oceanside? I grew up in Carlsbad, used to race at Hot Trick & E&L back in the day.

I'm looking at getting a 416X next month since I just sold my Evo 5 MS but I do have a question. Can you flip the drive train/belts left to right and right to left like on the TC5 and XRay to better balance the chassis? I assume you could only if you run a spool up front.

Aside from the belt tensioner on the upper deck it appears everything would work. As long as the battery didn't interfere with the long belt.
