Is it December yet? :cry:

Yep, already cleaned up my pit box to sell any bits I dont need in anticipation.

Although saying that the Sepes racing tuning set is going to keep me sweet in the meantime :)

I'm actually very curious to see if the steering fits the 417 and removes the slop.

aside from the suspension bits, i wonder if anything else is compatible with the 417 chassis... :)

It rained (poured) for 1 hour it took 1 hour to dry the track 20 min of practice then we raced.
Brooms squeeges and 2 blowers and a group of determined racers that were go at drying the track, not knowing if it was going to rain some more! We got the race in it was fun.

+1, a little more durable too imo.

Useful on narrow tracks with unforgiving track markers! I haven't broken anything on my ta05 and it's taken some beating.

If it's the same diff. Then the shock towers should fit
