It is heavy and changing of pinon and spur is really troublesome.

This may be true but, I think the ultimate question is "does it work?"
The xxxs is heavy, but no one will doubt its performance. I have on occasion heard gripes about the M and how taping in batteries is a hardship(shrug). If the car gets you to the front.....

Pyramid: You are right about the 414M. I think the 414M is a high performance car that most people didn't aware of. It is an expensive car, but it is a fully hop-up car that I don't have to worry of getting expensive option parts to make it run.

Yes, people will think Tamiya is Tamiya (just like I tought before). But once you own it, it's worth the money. Looks like the most expensive chassis kit, but with major options included, it's still consider cheap. Also, when you building the damper, oh...it is so smooth and easy like you never tought before. I think Car Action awarded Tamiya damper as the best shock (not sure).

I hope you enjoy it. (glad not bringing bathup kind of chassis in the track?)

About changing between C1 and C2 (C hubs) discovered so far,
Beside lowering the front ride height by about 1.5mm, it also FREE up the little obstacle when you built the C hubs according to manuals. What I meant by obstacle, built like manual, you will find your front knucle that is being hold by the C hub wont be able to move smoothly till the end (do not attach the sterring turnbuckle yet). There is the time where the knucle will hit its C hub housing. To get better view, built like manual and try it, you'll find out.

About the performance? I still have not got chance to try it.

Joehwee mate, I'm not liking this whole steal my avatar thing!! hahahaha.....

About the C hubs, Pyramid your spot on in my books, from what I've experienced when you swap the hubs there is little in the way of a change in handling, but I run them swapped for the reasons you mentioned.

Yes, just swap them from what it supposed to be according to the manual. If you said driver's site, it may not be the same site between countries.

Put C1 in the servos site

Ready To Race 414M Weight?

I was just wondering what your 414M's weight ready to race with batteries, etc in them. I just want to get a general idea, with Sanyo 3000's in the 414M.
Thanks
