416WE is a very good car. Too many changes to covert WE to X.

Honestly the 416WE is a great car. To change it over to the X you basically need all the bulkheads and the motor plate, chassis and upper deck, 4x8 unflanged bearings, new front sway bar.. Your WE should be competitive still, but it would be easier just to get a new X kit than convert it.

The best thing to do would be to have both bodies and just test with each before you race. Some tracks will be quicker with different bodies. I also read a post from Jilles saying the LTC-R is not suitable for very hot conditions where tyre heat is an issue

I could definitely see that as being a problem with the LTC-R. Lately I've been doing a lot of indoor running, but I'm sure the tires would have overheating issues with it outdoors in the summer especially.

Haha, nice TRF416 clone!
No flaming,

Doesn't your belt rub against the additional body mount?

Yes is's a clone
But has many tamiya parts and i really like it.Works awsome.
The belt is about 2mm away in any directions from the mount.
After tesing the car there is no sign of scratches on the alloy thing so the belt never reached it while i was driving.
Also it depends on the car,my front belt runs on the left side of the pulley,but my friends runs on the middel and i can't make a center mount for him becasue the belt always reaches the mount.
I'm glad that mine works great

That Square bumper thing will bend downward after a few good hits, and will then rub when you're cornering, making the car feel tweaked 'cause it won't turn one direction.

Just get a Parma T2 (or TC5) bumper, trim it down a bit to fit, and the front of your car will be nearly indestructible.

Also, for those who were interested, I got an email today from King Golden letting me know the LiPo chassis for the 416 is now available.

How hard are those Parma bumpers?
I recently ordered one of the Xray brand hard bumpers, and it is mega stiff, like a piece of wood, i cant see how it has any impact absorbing qualities, is the Parma one as hard as that?
