Thanks REFLECT! Those look good! I see you use the original battery tape slots did you countersink them? Also dd you have to make the C/F straps or do the X-Ray pieces work?

when you put these straps on, you must use epoxy the battery strap slot and then drill and countersink the screw hole for the xray posts, that way you will insure that you will not tweak the chassis. i will post some pics soon.

the toe in blocks are one of the most important things to buy for the 414

no reflekt
the part is called a suspension arm block and then it will have the letter c or d after it to differentiate from the degrees.

Default 414M2 dogbone/CV alternatives???

Are there any lightweight dogbone/CV's available for the 414M2 from Tamiya or another manufacturer (MIP, etc.)?

Also, is there a FAQ for the 414 series of cars? I'm mostly interested in learning what parts are interchangeable between the other Tamiya cars. This has probably been mentioned here, but there are so many post to page through, and without specific numbers the Search Engine dosen't help very much.

Concerning the parts, I'm specifically interested in know the part numbers for converting my 414M2 to full time 4WD (front diff & center).

Default Re: 414M2 dogbone/CV alternatives???

You can use this part: Part # 53502 - 42mm Lightweight Rear (and Front) swing shafts. The have the number 42 prinited on them (39mm are for TA04)

All you need to go full time 4wd is a standard TA04 ball diff for the front and a std TA04 layshaft and center pulleys.

The part numbers are on the back of every set of instructions for the 414 or ta04 series.

Actually to convert the 414 to full time 4wd you can use a second fixed pulley like the one on the spur side, all you have to do is file a small slot on the one-way side for the set screw to lock into.
