Today I went to my LHS, so I can pick up my " TRF Gear Diff" LOL what a joke; it's a branded spec-r gear diff, with upgraded o-rings (same as spec-r), but Tamiya install/build instructions. WTF is that all about?????? Double the money for a Spec-R Gear diff?

I'm very disappointed with Tamiya. I hope they have a good explanation for this. A lot of people are going to be upset and I'm one of them.

Hey, it's not like they're trying to fool anyone...

Translated Tamiya Japan product description

TRF417 Gear Diff Unit

IFMAR ISTC 2010 SPEC-R.
Two consecutive IFMAR ISTC World Championship 2010 World Championship was actually used in the memorial project as a total of four wins in a SPEC-R released in Tamiyasupesharupakkeji Gear Diff manufactured. SPEC-R has different Gear Diff made by Ball and a regular setting, it is possible to adjust the count by a fine setting of silicone oil. The case itself, less pain, so a closed Def longer maintenance cycle than Ball.

Is there any differences between the C-Hubs, Uprights, and sleaves in the front end of the 416/416WE/416X?

I purchased what I though would the same part for my 416WE and, it wasn't the same dimensions as the broken piece. The arm on the upright was longer, the upright was physicaly taller, The c-hub used different sleaves. I scrambled around, hunted through part bins and made it work, but pain in the butt.

Is there any difference between the front suspension parts in these cars(416/416WE/416X), did they revamp the design, what am I missing?

Sounds like you might have got the wrong parts, maybe from the 415. The uprights and hubs have been the same throughout all 416 models, though the original 416 came with the long arms, and the c-hubs have been beefed up along the way but have retained the working dimensions.

Thanks for the input. I got the car second hand so the only other conclusion I came to is the original owner used parts off another Tamiya car. Everything should work moving forward, I just hope I don't break too many parts.

The price should be around the same or slightly higher than the 416X that's still being sold here in the USA.

I think you'll find it's not that expensive when it's released...

... On a related topic, I'm now taking preorders. The 417 can be yours for just AUD$1000
