Talking sway bars

Comparing sway bars. The fronts are on the bottom the rears on the top.
The 418 bars are smaller and angle slightly different. The front sway bars are very close, should work but the rears are much larger.
Just my 2$

Cheers, Yep I have a full set for the 417 so I will look at making them fit.

BTW the hiro seiko screws are actually darker than Tamiya blue, I have them and they are not as close a match as Square screws (still very close though).

Today was my 3th race with the 418 and the car was once again super fast and easy to drive.
The second fastest guy (the overall winner of last year) was always between 1&2 rounds behind me.
Very pleased with the car

Would that also fit a 417 v5?

I got mine today and they are awesome!! Quick and easy install, everything you need is in the bag. I had a few spectacular flips today and the battery stayed put. This is an AWESOME product.

Wow nothing to talk about in 5 days! To continue the discussion on the battery mounts I should be getting two of 418 belt tension posts tomorrow and I'll be going the route Kentech went. If anyone's curious Tamiya USA has them in stock in fact they seem to have quite a few of the new parts in stock but no pictures so you just have to go off the part number codes.

Does anybody have a chart or a link to a chart that shoes the different toe angles with different blocks installed? Tried finding one and reading back with no succuess. I feel as of now with the A block rf and E block rr that's 3 toe in so maybe a C or D rr will be better. But a complete chart showing all the combinations would be nice

just to help remember, increments are .5 between letters...

A-A = 0
A-B = 0.5
A-C = 1
A-D = 1.5
A-E = 2

"X"-marked blocks are narrower than those without with X being the widest and XD being narrowest

(widest to narrowest)
F
E
D
C
B
A
X
XA
XB
XC
XD
