Ok I hope that someone that have already the car would do this check for us.
thank you

Go race TITC instead. It's at Surikarns new track. Plus it's a closer flight for you. I'll be there in late March though.

Just got the car, had a quick check and the arms both front and rear appears to be the same length as the short rev. arms used on the 417.

Rear belt is 189mm, or 63t.

I got the cars as well.

Anyone know what plastic from the 417 will work on the 418? Just don't want to unload my 417s with the parts that I can use on the new cars.

If your talking about suspension parts. The suspension set up from the 417 will fit without any problems. But I have no idea if the 417 and 418 parts are interchangeable

When do you think the spare parts will go on sale? Arms, steering hubs, and C hubs. Want to try it on my 417.
