Thanks for all of your help guys. I fixed it using a 404 layshaft and spurhub. The wobble is gone now so it must have been atleast the layshaft that was faulty. Once again thanks for the help. And for all of your help...here's a really blurry picture of Taka's chassis number 0001.

Once again thanks for the help. And for those who don't know, Taka A. is one of the "brain(washed)childeren" of the 404 and a really cool guy to hang out with, so I suppose he'd be entitled to first dibs on the 414WCR

Default Let it snow, let it snow...

Snow days are great days for building! After about 2 weeks of not being able to get to my 414M2, I finally had the opportunity yesterday because of the snow. I'm about 85% done (still need to do the steering, shocks and shock towers.

Thus far, everything has gone well. I am kind of concerned about all of the little spacers used and the little ends that go on the end of the inner hinge pins. I know that I'm going to loose something while tuning at the track. I love the fact that, so far, only 2 hex wrenches are needed to build the kit.

All parts seem top notch, and fit/finish has been great. I did have to do some slight filing to get the front C hubs to not fit so snuggly in the A arms. The rear diff is extremely smooth. I'm amazed how much I can back off the diff screw and still not get any diff slippage.

Can't wait until spring! Only 4.5 months to go!!!

when i built my kit, i noticed that the differential was smooth too. but what i suggest u do is tighten it a bit more. cuz once u run the car and "break it in", the differential screw could get loose. and then u gotta tighten it again. i guess it's not that big of a deal. but it's just a hassle u kno u dont wanna run into. also, ditch the hex tools. and get some good hudy tools! i couldn't stand the hex tools when building the kit, but i went through it anyway . anyway, congrats on ur new 414m2. i kno u'll love it. peaches.

reflekt: Thanks for your suggestion on diff adjustment. Concerning the hex wrenches, I should have been more clear... I used my MIP/Thorpe hex wrenches, not the hex wrenches included in the kit.

Question:

Do you guys use Locktite on the screws that screw into the bottom of the bulk heads?

lol. thats cool. i was just under the assumption that u used those little allen wrenches. lol. anyway,

the bottom screws underneath, that hold the bulkheads can get loose sometimes. but usually they dont. just make sure u always check ur car before u run it. check all screws. i dont think u'd wanna loctite those screws, cuz u never kno when u might wanna loosen the bulkhead for some reason or another. just make sure u check the screws before every run. peaches.

I'm thinking of getting a 414mII, but the only thing I see problematic in the battery strapping. I hate dealing w/ tape is there a solution to win me over?

You can use some battery straps. I am using some buds straps and they work really well.... The onlt bad thing about using the straps is if you get in a bad collision they can loosen up and the packs may slide off the side some, setting the balance of the car off some. I have been really happy with the 414M. No more breaking parts since I got it...... and I hit more than my fair share of things....

I've used different methods of keeping the battery pack down on the chassis. but yeah, like u, i also feel that battery tape is pretty annoying to use. although it's the best method, but there are other ways. i find the express velcro battery straps to be the best. u can tighten as hard as want, and the pack wont budge. works best with a saddle pic as seen in the pic, but u can also use a stick pack too. but this can have potential to be nudged out of place if u take a hit. anyway, hope this helps. peaches.
