You'll need the following parts for a front one-way on the WE:

One-way housing: #3454520
One-way joint: #9444623
37T one-way pulley: #54023

Thanks for posting up this setup. I'll give it a try this weekend.

How do you measure the droop setting front and rear?

Ok I am leaning to the 416X over the T3 and Photon for this fall/winter indoor carpet rubber.

I have never ran Tamiya. What parts do you recommend to have on hand? This is a shot in the dark but does anyone know where to find a carpet setup for 17.5 tight track?
I just hope the results will be even close to my Losi.

If you check the main Tamiya website they have a basic setup for carpet by a factory driver in the TRF site.

Get the car first then worry about the parts later,, Dirty Johnson.

Droop is measured with droop blocks under the outer hinge pins i.e. not under the set screw bump on the front arms

The setup works a treat for me, it's the best I've had my X. I've just installed a gear diff to try, looking forward to testing it out!

What shop in america has spec r gear diffs for the 416 in stock? Looking to adapt something, but in the mean time I need a spec r. Might have to adapt a Photon gear diff.

Does Atomic/Spec R have a america distributer? Got to get them into our shop.

Speedtech imports both Spec R and Atomic, but they are out of stock on both for the moment.

C-hubs, Rear Hubs, Front arms and dogbones. And get titanium turnbuckles. The stock alum ones are very soft.

C blocks I've never broken an arm the whole time I've been running 416s. The C-hubs are also a lot chunkier now than they used to be and they're a lot harder to break.

I find the best parts to carry are actually for the drivetrain. Keep heaps of driveshaft blades on hand and replace them regularly, as soon as one wears a bit it will break and ruin your outdrive$ in a lap or two. Spool cups are also a must to keep spares of - it's best to run the 46mm driveshafts to prolong them a bit more

+1

spool cups are regular replacements for me every 2 or 3 race weekends.
arms are tough

i've broken 1 c-hub thus far on a very small, tight carpet race with 11.5R and turbo

never bent any suspension blocks. hingepin, yes.

I just got these in the mail today. I hope to test them out Saturday. I got tired of replacing spool cups...
