tamiya xanavi nismo gt-r g35 body fit the 417, I am trying to get some bodies to work with my 417, but some do not fit, the nsx did not fit, and the axio corolla did not fit, as it was released on the ifs setup, but the subaru cusco fit which was also the ifs set up, so does anyone know if this body will fit , I really like it, thanks

Use the older NSX bodies starting at 2004 Ebro, Lambo, Skyline, Ferrari, these work also Mercedes, Honda HSV.

I purchased some custom painted bodies and was intending on running them on a x ray t2 008 that i never ended up getting. Can someone tell me if the xray T-3 hole pattern fit on a TRF 417? From pictures I've found on the net it looks like it will.

Many thanks in advance...!

Front hole spacing is the same. Rear hole spacing on the Tamiya is about 1/2" different than the XRay, I can't remember if it's narrower or wider. What I've done is oval out the holes and shoe goo a piece of lexan to the inside of the body.

Do you guys prefer the 417x over the 417 and is it worth it?

Thanks
