I can't make any direct comparisons, but I'm very happy with my Exotek 416XL. Most of my racing is outdoor on a medium-grip asphalt surface and I've never had a problem with lack of grip. Er, except when there's dampness and it's like driving on teflon

I do like the option of the carbon or steel battery retainers when I experiment with different motors/weights.

Phil.

I am considering getting a gear diff. What diff oil should I use for low traction track and bumpy track? If it helps, track temp is high at ~50C.

Please recommend brand also as I know different brands have different weight ratings.

I use 1000 (Ultimate Racing) in the rear diff of my 417, and I ran at a low-traction track this weekend, with decent result.

Depends what motor/esc combo, size of track etc etc... I run anywhere from 5.0 to 7.0 fdr, using either tekin or hobbywing.

I question around the HPI Silver Springs that seem to be the prefered spring for asphalt tracks.

It's suggested to use the HPI silver springs, but they are hard to come across. I notice from the universal spring chart on the threads that they are meaured at 16.2lb/in.

I also notice from the same chart that the Tamiya Silver springs are measured at 16.1lb/in. Are these the springs that come with most standard tamiya's, or a different spring altogether. If they are, could they be a good starting point instead of using the HPI springs.

Very new to the 416x,so any help would be appreciated.

I think the reason people use Hpi is because they are linear and the tamiya ones are progressive.
But I guess u can give it a go.

Hello everyone,

just a little question about the final ratio on a TRRF416X:

I drive with a SP 10.5R motor and a SP GT2.1 Prostock esc on big track, and people in my club told me I had to have a final ratio of 5.7.

So I look in my gears for this ratio, but I do not have 38 teeth pinion motor.

And as I have the Tamiya original 0.4 module spur gear, I do not know if I can wear this with 64DP gear motor, as RW, for example.

So, can I put 64DP gears with module 0.4 spur gear? Or do I have to find a motor pinion 38 teeth in Tamiya 0.4 module to be compatible?

Thanks for your answers and see you soon,
G-rem
