Smokem has 2 different chassis. The 416LP is 2.3mm with no cutouts and is stiffer than standard Tamiya 2.25mm. The 416FX is 2.2mm with cutouts and has more flex.

Default Compare option chassis

Hello,

Did somebody already compared for the 416 on carpet the two smokem chassis (LP and FX) and the one from Tamiya (TA-42182)?
Could you tell how it felt and the one you prefer?

So, somebody needs to come out with a simple, stiff lipo chassis, or i'm just gonna make my own at the shop. Smokem looks to be the best option?

Anyone try Exotek chasis?

I am soon going to put my Smokem 416LP chassis to use as we are likely to adapt the 1350 gram weight limit.

For those that have used the Smokem chassis or any other chassis with flipped belts and the servo mounted closer to the center line of the car, are there any clearance issues with the tie rod which connects the servo to the steering assembly? It looks like it might rub the upper deck.

Thanks!

When I built the diff, I used 2 of the shims on each side to prevent the shims collapsing into the orings. Even though they are only 0.1mm it meant I needed to use 2 gaskets to get a nice mesh. After one meet it feels even better now, but I might give it a go with a single gasket now that the teeth are bedded in just in case the mesh is a little too loose now

Really happy though, I didn't expect it to be that good in lower grip, cant wait to try it on a dry track and check the lap times!

I try Mugen 3000wt oil but it seem too light. Any problem on the gear diff?

Yes, it will rub a bit. You'll have to remove .5mm of the spacers on the steering rack. Other than that, everything else is a perfect fit.

I'm still running 1000 and its working great. I have noticed some slop which I believed was in the teeth but when I removed the 2nd gasket the mesh was too tight again, so I think the slop is between the gears and pins. I'll be glad when tamiya bring out their gear diff, hopefully it'll have metal gears like the TOP one

Does anyone know any online stores that have the Lipo chassis in stock. Perfect timing, I finally get the $$ together for the chassis and everyone sells out.
