Mike I did similar on my EVO

1. Use CA and place them back to back with smooth to the diff ring grit to the diff gear

6.Yes use the Losi pads they work fine and only 2-3 dollars I think. They come with at least 4 pads and maybe even 6-8 the pack I got had 8-9 of them.

Hope it helps

Correct if you want to re-use the ring you could re-polish the rings to remove the CA. I would just purchase new ones

hey difuser,

Just got in from Rain City with Kevin's former 414. Picked up a full second over my previous best lap and I'm nowhere near done dialing it in. The TRF414M2 is unbelievable.

Thanx for the heads up, I couldn't be happier with this car.

mike f

i did indeed use CA to glue the parts mentioned, and i uses CA for all steps where i mentioned "glue"...

the reason for doubling up the sand paper is to achieve the correct thickness so that you do not need to waste a set of diff rings (and the sand paper does not glue well to the steel diff ring anyway)

when you double them up, make sure things go in this order- rough side/smooth side, glue(CA), rough side/smooth side...

where the "rough side/smooth side" is one piece of sand paper.

then you can glue (CA) this double thick piece of sand paper to the black plastic ring holder that is part of the 414 diff out drive set. this allows you to change out the outdrive if they become worn or damaged, and just switch your spool pad over to the new outdrives (like i said, even better then losi's idea)

OK peter. Thanks.

So your not using the diff rings but making replacements with sand paper then gluing them on the black plastic rings, correct

I do not think Xray parts will fit perfectly for your matters. There is Japan company called RACY who makes that think you looking for. Unfortunately, I could not find it in stock anywhere (beside in Japan of course).

here is link to see how it looks like (go under 414M topic),

In case any fellow 414 users here have fortunate to compare TB EVO3 with 414M, please share your comments. Thanks in advance
