Could you tell me how you made the 3racing spurgearholder fit in the 416WE?

I am considering switching to a Tamiya TRF416X with the lipo-kit from Tamiya. I have some questions though:

How much weight do you (roughly estimated) have to put on the car, to get it balanced left to right? Everytime I see someone with a Tamiya, they have a ton of weight added to the side of their lipo. Is all that just to get it balanced, or for bringing the car up to the weight-limit? With my Xray I almost don't need any weight to get it balanced.
The weight-limit where I race is 1350g. Is it possible to get it close to that?

With the lipo-kit from Tamiya (with the Lipo chassis), can I flip the belts, in order to push the electronics more towards the center?

In my Xray I've got ECS drive shafts. Is something similar required getting for the Tamiya, or are the stock drive shafts good enough?

Does anyone have the part no. for both the front and center one-way units for the new lipo chassis? In desperate search for it, TIA!

Tamiya (#49382) On-Road Hard Spring Set (White)

or the same set, just the entire spring is in the tension colour:
Tamiya (#53440) On-Road Turned Hard Spring Set

or milky blue with the dots instead of white:
Tamiya (#49389) On-Road Hard Spring Milky Blue

Take your pick they are the same thing.

However there seem to be coloured springs, all white and all black springs in different grades available. I'm a bit confused but I think I need the white and blue springs which are actually all white.

Can anyone explain the different types and applications, and perhaps give part numbers?

Thank you very much for this reply.

Should I also consider #42168 touring car spring short black ?

Hi Guys,

Wanted to let you know that I just ordered the Tamiya gear diff for my 416WE!! I cant wait to pick it up and start testing. I'll report back the results.


Cheers

You won't need to add too much weight to get to 1350. With the lipo chassis I run most of my weight down the centre, I have about 80g on the car but our weight is 1425. The tamiya uni's are also very good, even better with the TOP axle pin retainers which really free them up.

Both LTC R and Speed 6 are good. LTC is better for tight tracks with slow corners, the speed 6 has less initial steering than the LTC but better mid corner and high speed steering. I haven't tried the audi.

I think you'll find it very similar to the Spec R

I'm looking for some gearing suggestions. The track I run on is 80'x36', carpet, medium traction, and slightly bumpy.

I have good in fied speed, but lack straightaway speed. Spur gear 104, pinion 44. Class I run is touring stock, unboosted. Motor: LRP X-11, Esc: Tekin RS. Running a TRF416WE. Jaco Blues are the spec tire.

I'm looking for Spur pinin combinations, not FDR.

Thanks in advance.
