Thank you gents, I was looking for some 17.5 setups for the 16 model and I was able to find a couple more between those two.

The setup difference between 2016 and 2017 is near zero
Biggest points of change is rug rype and spool or no spool

Hello. Just got my new spool. Of course I failed to read the small print that you need another left hub. And of course they are now sold out everywhere as well. What is everyone using? The Associated looks quite similar. Any ideas? Thank you

Genesis RC Raceway sells Roche parts and has the item you need in stock. I have not measured an AE clamping hub but I'm sure you would be just fine using one.

Any left hub will work. Just need to shim accordingly.

Thanks. I saw the one at Genesis RC. But I'm in Canada and shipping makes this unreasonably expensive. I will try the AE hub. My local hs has one.

Will the front suspension bulkheads for a 17 car bolt onto a 15/16, is the spacing on the chassis the same? Thanks
