I wonder what Jiles is testing on his 418 already. Looks like new shocks and also a different top deck.

I saw another picture where he had ARC short shocks on one of his cars, those shocks look different again

Interesting that speedtech are already doing preorder, I think usually asia gets it before the US though. In two weeks I'm going to Japan for AOC so hopefully I can pick one up while I'm there!!

So the 418 is using a similar centre pulley as the Yokomo/Raceberry. Will be interesting to see how a 417 Raceberry goes against a 418, and how interchangeable the parts are

Banzai Hobby in Japan have had the 418 available for pre-order on their website for approx. the last 6 weeks.

I'm sure no one can tell me if the 417v5 servo mount will fit the 418 i don't like the 418 floating servo.

The look the same to me, other than the lack of TRF Racing Factory being stamped on the 418 mount. I guess we'll find out as soon as someone gets their hands on a 418

Just an FYI:

If someone is planning on selling a nice 417 lot to purchase the new 418 please send me a PM.

Thx...
