I don't run a 417, but I do favor a high traction indoor track.

I like to run Jilles basic rubber setup, with roll centers "higher" meaning inner camber link position with less spacers...this reduces traction roll.

The only other change I make is front and rear camber about -1.

Approximately how much weight are people adding for the new 1380 weight rule? I know it depends on the electronics installed. I just want an average to determine how many lead weight packages I should order.

Well with my 416, I'm about 30 gms under, and my layout is similar to my 417, just haven't got it put together yet. That's with a rs pro, futaba rec, and 9550 servo.

So is it safe to say at this time there is no direct fit spur gears available for this car? I understand you can just drill to 3mm holes in other gears.

I ordered some spurs thru speedtech the other day that are supposed to be designed for the car. Just haven't gotten them yet to give you a definate answer. I believe they were by RW.

I believe the new style xenon gears fit as well.

Edit: What he said ^

Any spur with a 4hole mounting will fit, which the Xenon's have too.
Kimborough, RW etc need the extra hole.

Personally, I just brought a stash of 113t Tamiya spurs...

I know Tamiya's gears are supposed to be a different pitch, or whatever, but when I ran them with my 64P pinions, it was the quietest sedan I've ever had. What's the drawback to the stock gears?

Kawada spur gears fit perfectly.

there is no drawbacks! I'm running the factory 111t and I bought a bunch of spare 111's and a few more 113's. I agree also, very quiet, perfect mesh.
