Yeah, you've noticed sharp eyes, haven't got the chance to do that yet. Will do it soon. ,I'm trying to find the best ESC to use. Do you have any recomendation.

Veecee,

I've placed all my electronics towards the centreline and push the battery out a lil bit (if necessary) to balance the car and it works great. One thing for sure is that my corner speed is slightly faster compared to the ori chassis!

Cheers.

Default 416X

Anyone know if the Spec.R 44mm universals fit on the 416X?

I see in the kit that 42MM shafts are provided. Is there enough room to clear the 44mm shafts?

You've got lead weight added?

44MM shafts will not work in the rear unless you run a wider track width. They hit the diff screw.

We are talking front... Is 44mm too short? Should I search for a Spec.R 46mm?

sorry then I would run 46mm up front. They fit wothout issue.

I thought you were talking rear because the kit comes with 42mm in the rear/44mm in the front.

46mm shafts in front make the car understeer and push, this is why the X comes with 44mm shafts. Also is why the X has more steering than the WCE which came with 46mm up front.....

The WCE comes with 44mm up front.

If you read the thread Gillies says the 46mm shafts up front provide smoother steering and also make the spool cups last longer.

The 416X has more steering mainly from moving the battery to the position from the original 416.

i never knew the length of the shafts could effect the handling characteristics

Sorry but that's not correct, the X has more rear grip due to the battery and diff location...

I've used both 46mm and 44mm shafts and it makes bugger all difference. The 46's are nicer on your spool cups though, and Jilles reckons the thinner dogbone smooths out the steering compared to the 44's.
