Hi,

Anybody can help me!
If you use an aluminum ball differential instead of the original plastic and want to replace the teflon "spacers" or "ball holders" (I don't know what you call them)where can you get them separately or what can you use instead?

Thanx in advance!!

I can help. It's called ball diff bushings. You get 20 for 1.20USD from Tamiya America.

Well guys, just when you thought that chassis number one would be in a museum somewhere in Japan, guess what showed up at the track this Saturday ? Chassis 0001/1700 Hmmm...one screw for the spur hub, two for the motor, and three the motor plate, I'll trade you motor plates Taka cuz mine will make you go faster hahaha. Here's a pic of Taka and chassis one in action.

Vic,

Glad it worked for you, I actually ran a liitel kick up in the front this weekend to get the car to cut in a little harder,

But i think I like it the way before

Casey,

One question what difference does it make in theory if I attach the rear upper links to the tower instead of the bulk-head?

reflekt,

The titanium turnbuckles from Tamiya comes in pairs, and it uses a square instead of a hex as adjustment nut. Using Tamiya turnbuckles allow you to stay TCS legal We also have the 5.5mm spacer kit, which allow you to adjust the roll center of the 414M2 I believe.

rtypec,

if you're going to SoCal, bring spare parts!

one question...

i was wondering, the steel turnbuckles that come with the TRF414M2 kit are 7 3x38mm turnbuckles and 2 3x18mm steering linkage turnbuckles. now....

the 3x18 i can get with just a pair. but the 3x38mm turnbuckles? speedtech, u guys only sell 3x32 and 3x35? would either size work? or do i have to get 3x35mm to replace the stock 3x38mm turnbuckles?

also, can i just save myself a buck and get the cheaper 3x32mm turnbuckles? or do i have to get the 3x35mm ones? let me kno. thanx. peaches.

Is the TA03 steering knuckle compatible with the 414X?

Anybody run the Protoform Vauxhall body on their 414M2? I wanted something other than the 2.0 Stratus that I do run most of the time. I looks alot like the Protoform Primera body that I ran a few years ago from Protoform. I think the Vauxhall should be a nice neutral body with good steering and good downforce. It is very sleek fitting on my 414. It looks good too!!!!
