Hello,

I saw some modifications arround the suspension mount of the lower arm in front and back of your car. Is this from tamiya?

We used Diffoil#1000 from Kyosho (mine was from Tamiya).

Here is a pic of my car:

They are just the 2 piece Tamiya suspension blocks.

don't know if its been asked before but what is the reason for marcs car to have spacers under the motor mount/layshaft mount, obviously raising the top deck but why for clearance or is it a handling reason

It helps to prevent the motor touching the track in high speed corners, so you could set the car up with a little more roll and the motor wouldn't scrape the track.

Been struggling a bit in high traction to get my new 416X to finish the corners as quickly as I'd like. I put the WE bulkheads/motor mount in the rear with the original 2pc top deck and the car seemed better. Much as I like the X, I'm not 100% convinced it's the best setup when the grip comes up on the rug.

Stiffen the car up. On high traction asphalt I am running 19lb front springs and 17.5lb rear springs (stiffer than anything Tamiya offers). It really woke up the car.

My 416 spends all its time on the rug, and I have updated it to the WE motor mount & Top Deck. Seems to work really nice in wide range of traction conditions.

Default 416x front one way

Hi guys,

I'm interested in purchasing and installing a front one way on my 416x. I found the following items and wanted someone with experience to confirm that it fits the the 416x.

3454520 TRF416 one way housing
9444623 TRF416 one way joint

It's my understanding that the JDM kit comes with both the one way and the spool. However, I could not find the JDM kit's product manual to extract the part numbers.

If these are the incorrect parts I would appreciate a part number/s for the correct parts.

Thanks for the help in advance.

John

I always prefer raising the roll centres or using heavier oil to running stiff springs. My car always feels slow with anything harder than HPI silver on the front.

Great! I'm glad I never "downgraded" to the X version.
Anyways, if you haven't tried it already, raise the rear diff. It frees up the car a ton mid corner/off throttle. It worked wonders at WCRC (very high traction indoor asphalt), but it really sucked at my home track Norcal (med traction outdoor asphalt)
