Thanks!
They BARELY fit, and that's the 5000 pack, it has maybe .1mm clearance between the pack and upper deck. However, that pack with the Deans plugs won't work with the 416X since the pack is moved further back, the wires will rub on the pulley.

I'm actually switching over to Team Checkpoint power, I've been running their motors for about a month now and they have the best powerband of anything I've tried. I also ran their batteries at the KO race and they fit with no issues, and had good power as well.

I'll be at the track on Sat if you'd like to see how the WE and X battery placement differs.

I ran my 416WE on medium bite asphalt in cold temperatures last night with the same tires and exact same setup I ran at the Snowbirds warmup race on high bite carpet. The car was surprisingly good. I can't say as though I wouldn't make changes, but I was pleasantly surprised at how big the setup window is on the 416.

Interesting.... I wonder if they have new spring rates or just painted the old spring set.

place the xenon tires in the appropriate waste receptacle at your earliest convenience then start over.

lame! Some Tamiya sized springs with HPI rating/progression would be sweet! I'll probably still get some since my milky blue set have turned manky blue tho

Just a note for anyone using the HPI springs. You'll probably want to use the wider HPI spring retainers as well. They come on a parts tree that include shock ends which you'll need to use to get them to fit. The good news is, for whatever reason, those shock ends fit the Tamiya ballstuds perfectly and the shock builds to 61.5mm with no problems.

meh, I've been using them with the tamiya retainers for a couple years now and only had the retainer disappear into the spring once

prob not a bad idea if you're shock ends need replacing tho
