lol i ran the car in short wheelbase since day 1 ....

after running the car on per instruction setup from manual the 1st day i switced to short wheelbase on my 2nd pack ...

i find it twichier and less stable to drive but the cornering was SUPERB... and so was the corner speed on super tight turns ... but on bigg and huge sweepers it takes some getting used to ... changes direction real quick and will need some getting used to ..

merciless... on the front end it will increase sensitivity
on the rear end ... suprisingly... i find that it increases grip ....
altho on theory this isn right ....

Hi There,

I just purchased one of the last WRC here in Canada and really loved how the car handles from day one! . It really suites the way I like driving a car, a lot of steering. I have been running stock from two tracks, our local track here in Vancouver and one in Raincity in Western Washington and the car really hooks up pretty good. I am switching over to mod and would like some advise on setup and gearing. I currently run the car almost stock but changed the wheelbase to be 2.5 mm shorter for tight tracks. I also tried making changes to shock springs and front toe with fair success. I basically run a P2K with a 120/35 gearing as well as a Monster with a 120/31 with great success in our local track. We also use foam tires for mod, quite a change from stock where we run rubber. What gearing could I use for mod using a 10x2?

Thanks in advance.

Anyone know the part number for the new NSX body? Does it handle as good as the Ferrari 360 Modena body? Does the body come with a wing?

Go Faster - Where do you race? You should bring that thing by Reflex. We're racing tomorrow at 7pm. Hope to see you out there. We need more Tamiya drivers! A lot have been shifting over to XRay... BOOOO!

teamatlas,

For TCS, a lot of the racer use either the Ferrari light weight Modena 360 body or the Skyline GTR Body. The new Raybrig NSX body is very popular in Japan, and we'll have some in later on this week (I will try one out myself and let you guys know who it works)

Hey Steve/Speedtech, any chance on getting in the Silver Graphite Chassis kits for the 414M2? I've tried the Modena body and it seems to handle well. But I'd also like to see how the NSX does... I'll be looking for your report Steve.... I'll be running at 2 TCS races this year.

Default Printable Gear Ratio Chart

Hi everybody,

Here's something for the 414/Evo3 owner. This is a printable Excel worksheet that contains gear ratios for both cars using 64 pitch pinions and spur gears. Rctech won't allow me to upload them as an xls file so I saved them as a zip. All you have to do is print it, laminate it somehow, and shoegoo it to the back of your RPM pinion gear caddy. You'll never have to worry about using a calculator at the track again Enjoy!

I'm not sure but if the Evo1's internal gear ratio is 2.598, then I guess it does

Hahahaha! Only if the other Xray takes me out on the last lap on my conservative TQ run... And it was 0.06s.

Tommy's in charge of the website and he's on his honeymoon. So in other words, no we don't ever update our website. But now I gotta know who you are since you were there for Thursday night's race...

marvi - The 414 uses metric ballstuds (can't remember exactly the ball size) which are much larger than the typical standard 4-40 ballstuds found on the TC3.
