Default not really

these tao4's are not pure bred race machines the tao4 pros are good but there is only a certian amout you can tune them i run one but only indoor and it's fun not competitive. go out and get your self an Xray tc3 c4.1 yr4tc 414mII then you will be able to tune them. as for to4s just setemup for your track or what you think makes sense then use it thats the best sort of thing.(slippery serface softer tyers less camber more rear toe etc.)

fasterdanu,


What are you talking about. The ta04 can be very competitive. I agree that the sport version is not that great but a full option 04r is very worthy and has almost all the setting options as a 414m2.

stratus, Their is a whole thread on this chassis ask away and you will get the answers you need.

here is a pic of 1 of mine that is very race worthy and has beaten many tc3's and Losi's and so on.....

I'll have to disagree with both sides.

The TA04R is a very competitive machine in the hands of the right driver. In singapore here, we've got ppl using 04Rs taking down all the top of the line cars (like all versions of xrays, 414ms, tb evos, TC3s, MR4s et cetera. You name it, it's lost to the TA04R). Purebred race machine or not, apart from the equipment you've got to consider 2 other factors: Driver Capability, Driver's Setting Capability. That 04R driver happens to be so darn good

On the other hand, why can't the 414M run in small technical tracks? The ability to adjust the wheelbase on the 414M to make it even shorter than the 04S, Pros and Rs can prove to be an advantage (or in my book, a liability). The wider track width assists alot in the stability department. I have yet to try the new 04SS arms, so no comments there. stratuskyo, may I know who's your shifu?

Since you are located in singapore, have you been to a CCK race and check out the settings of the various people? I'm sure no one would stop you from looking/asking!

Alvin,
You bring up a very good point of driver and setup. I run my car on a high bite carpet track and the stock 04r setup is very nice I had to change very little.

What sort of track surfaces do you want to cover stratuskyo?? let us know what you want and lets see how we can help..

fasterdanu, You have obviously not seen the full potential of the 04R have you????
My 04R is now fully hopped up with every option available and as far as looks go, there is really not a lot of difference between it and the 414 apart from the alloy bulkheads!! I have more than once left the local TC3s, XXX-S and even an Xray T1 wondering what the hell is going on.... and they are no lesser drivers than I am. I have put a lot of hours into my 04 and I think its the best value for money race worthy car there is.
Not to forget that it was the winner of the Tamiya 3 hour endurance race which included TBs and 414X cars!!!

What's your set up and what type of track/material are you running it in?

Will post my setup tonight when I get home.... Track surface is a freshly done parking lot which is very smooth. Traction is better than average but is excellent when prepped with sugar water. Track surface temps are quite warm to hot due to the climate where I live. Circuit is fairly tight with turns of 90 degrees or sharper with short straights between. One main straight of average length.
