Great job winning the Snowbirds. The best race I have ever seen live. I will post video I took later today.

Also thank you for the help with my new 417.

wider = less grip, but more stability

Hmmm this is why i want to know, here in the UK two very well known drivers say more / wider shims on the front hex for example give more steering as you are changing the kingpin angle, but others say different? so i wanted to find out from the master!

Jilles

May I know if the 416 Spec R diffs are the same as the 417 Tamiya gear diffs?

Can you tell the difference if I were to have both placed side by side?

I'm no Jilles (great result at the 'birds by the way 2 in a row!), but from my experience, wider is more stable, gives less initial turn-in, but maybe a little more corner speed. Narrower gives more initial bite into the corner, and reacts faster.
I played with this recently, couldn't get the car to bite into the turn on a small technical track until I went from 1mm to 0.5mm axles spacers.
