The position of the balls that attach from the servo to the knuckles?
Can you have the balls in a different hole on the right and left?

Vic - The C1/C2 thing we are talking about are the steering uprights (the plastic piece that houses the bearings and universal.) If you notice, as per kit settings, the left upright says "C1" and the right says "C2." By switching these (making C1 on the right and C2 on the left) there is an effect on the handling. I think what it does it raise the front roll center to give you more aggressive turn-in, but I haven't tried it myself yet.

Hrmm... it shouldn't have an effect on speed..

Still with the Knuckle arms

Am i right in thinking that Using the outer linkage mounting for the steering gives a less aggressive feel than the inner one.Oh and is that the only effect the two holes have ?

Default Attention all 414m owners!

You should check out Rainbowten's website under RC news.

Appears that Tamiya will be releasing a whole host of hop-ups for the 414m chassis including lightweight front and rear bulkheads and motor mount, upper and lower decks in the silver carbon colours (as well as new silver carbon F/R shock mounts).

Pricey stuff, but they will make your 414m very very very desirable!

I'm drooling already and am hoping that they will simply release a new kit with all of these parts.

Kilruf,

I'll let you know. I should get the body next week. As for the SSG Chassis, I probably saw the same pictures as you did, and that's off the Tamiya Feb. 2003 release, so I'll definitely try and get those in as soon as possible. I'm not quite ready to let go of my 414M2 just yet (I got a EVOIII to try this weekend). The 414M2 has been one of the best car I have ever driven.

Here's a qn for all the TRF insiders and Ms. Cleo's among you...

Ok, so we know that Tamiya plans to release some really trick parts for the 414M sometime in February... anyone know/think Tamiya will release a new version of the 414M to include these new parts?

C'mon... somebody here's gotta know something!



(I'm thinking of ordering a while of hop-ups from Japan real soon... enough to substantially increase Japan's export figures... unless Tamiya plans to issue a new 414M. I would wait in that case...)
