Question for all of you who might happened to know,

What's the different (all differences) when I set up the 414M with the following paramenters in mind,

All oil damper and springs are the same in four corners but the damper install differently in shock tower. I mean rear shocks on shock tower inner most holes while the front, let say, in the middle holes in order to get about same damper tension on all four corners.

Compared to,

Front oil is #10 higher (assume trinity) and springs are 1 step harder but all dampers are in middle hole of its shock tower.

How does it affects and why??

Thanks for you time.

Does anyone know where I can get 5x9 ballstuds in titanium or Stainless steel? I am getting tired of these stinking Aluminum studs snapping off on my 04-R... Thanks.

Any news on a new TRF racing car? I'm thinking of getting a 414M (even though I have a TA04 setup very much like it), but I'm worried Tamiya will come out with a new, possibly better 414 car.

All I can say is if they do bring out a new TRF car is that they bring out the conversion kit for it like they did for the 414 owners when the 414M came out, because I would like the new one if it's good but would rather convert my 414M to the new specs.

I don't think Tamiya is going to get a car out that's better than the 414M. At least not for a year or longer, since TA04 series cars just came out not too long ago. If they do have newer model, I believe it will be a secret for a year or so. If they did the same thing as Shcuey did with Axis 2 and mission. that will be a big mistake on their marketing part. I don't want to buy a new car and two months later there is a better one come out.

Tamiya probably will get more TRF-speical kits of the TA04 series like the TA04-S TRF, TA04 R-TRF something like that but TRF-414M will stay as their ultimate car for a while.

Barry is now a team AE driver. He won a big gas sedan race a few months ago with the new TC3 nitro. Should help AE out alot.

I don't think Tamiya will bring out a new version of the 414M any time soon. Seeing how Sunrikan Dominated the race and Miura also 414M, they were FAST.

Only Hara got near Miura at the last round of the final but off course, he didn't let Hara pass so he could catch up with Surikan.

The 414M was untouchable all weekend!

Another good car on the weekend was Altas T-Model. Very fast and stable, but the driver made one or two mistakes so too bad.

Barry's car was fast too but the car didn't handle the bump as well as other cars when been pushed. ( may be 0.01 sec slower, ya)

Does the 414M chasis kit come with the aluminium setting wheel? Does the 414M instruction manual provide great details of setting up the car? i.e., shock length? Any advise for gear ratio for 8, 9 & 10 turn motor?

No there are no setting wheels included. And there is only limited info for setting the car up. I guess Tamiya believe that they don't need that as it is targeted at the "Seasoned" racer. I personally started with the setups mentioned on Tamiya Japans website from the pro races and work from there.

rccarracer: Thanks Mate. Does the kit comes with any spacer for adjusting the front and rear bulkhead kickup or anti-squat?
Can the Tamiya 0.4p spur use with the 64p pinion?

They do, but you might want a couple extra with different sizes. 0.75mm is the one from the kit, get 0.5mm for more variety of tunning.

.04 is a 64p spur gear, I dont really like the original one because they are too flex. Get delrin from GM or others.

About right height issues that someone and I brought it up before (look older post), here are some fixes I found out so far.

First, Change all the springs collar with Serpent #909405. Not only it is thinner but it also has inner rubber. You'll hate the original collar.

If, for whatever reasons ride height problem still matters (maybe you want to REALLY lowered your front end), switch the place for front steering knuckle (C1 and C2 on manual) between L and R. This would lower your front end by around 1.5mm.

I believe this is what we should have built the car on the first place. Not only for lowering the front ride height, but also (if you notice) your steering turnbuckle will sit more horizontal / flatter with its steering arms.

Moreover, get kyosho MP7.5 clucthbell sims (forgot the #s) to avoid a little play in steering arms.

Hope it helps
