Now on with the proper subject. Murai formally of TRF who has now departed to HPI was a stern believer in the racing side of Tamiya (TRF), notice how the top of the range cars developed a few years ago first with the 404x and onwards to his final car the Evo3, This was when Murai was handed the design area or TRF. The previous designer was a stern believer in the TA03 and from what information we found out last year in Japan he was still there and still a believer in alternative drive trains.........I dont believe till there are pics of the car that one can say it will be either a SD or a belt drive, or even a mixture of both again. Rick
rick i still dont see what u are getting at.
have you ever driven a 414 of ur own?no
the most competite tamiya car uve driven is ur evo3 sl.
so how do u know which one is better.as stated a few pages back u said the evo3 was better.
but it hasnt won no were near as many races.
so my point is why are you making points here?
most of us here have a 414 and know the history of it.
i just cant see what ur point is.
also if the evo3 sl is sooo good then why do they still develop the 414 and build a 415?
also if it was a sd then why not just call it an evo4?
and then they wudnt have had to made the sl.

Rick,

just oe remark : Miura was not the designer of the Evo 3. I add this to prove what I'm saying

Taken from tq-racing "Toshihiko Hara, the TB Evo3 designer".

Anyway, I knew it because at last year's tamiya euro cup final, this guy was there and told my mate he was working on a new car, which will be shaft driven. When my mate told him about our project based on a 414, he said they could be interested, but that mainly the development of the 414 was over.

IMHO 415 will for sure be a brand new car, otherwise it will be called 414 something or 424 (remember the first was called 404X), and I don't think they will make such a mistake as to get back to combined drive trains (I hope not at least).

And for me, a brand new car would be welcome, the 414 series are quite good, but there are so many things to improve. I have been driving 414's for 3 years and have a really good feeling with it, I can even be fast with an undriveable car, because I know how she will react. But it ends like a little boring, that's why I bought a SD, I'm as fast with each of them, but still there are things I have to discover with the SD.

If the 415 reach my expectations, I might get one, even if I have to sell my SD.

People, People !!! We're supposed to be friends here !!! lets all calm down, light up some candles and chant ....Ta Mi Ya, Ta Mi Ya !!
Now that I have your attention, it's time for a dumb question. I've heard that in Japan the batts of choice are stick packs. True?? If so, has anybody got experience or opinion on how they handle with that layout?? I've thought of trying it but I haven't run the 414 in some time. I guess you could say "it got shafted !!" And just a note...I too dislike saddle packs. part of the reason I went to the Evo. My understanding is the 415 will allow for SxS packs.

Yup,

Most classes in Japan uses stick packs (why do you think the Ta04 did never allow any saddle pack configuration ?), mainly for their most popular 19T class.

Since it has been used last year in tamiya cup, so far I can tell is it runs allright, but still a little slower than with the saddle pack.

Do you guys it's worth the downgrade so you can put the receiver?
I am running Ko propo 2143 right now.
Which is 0.08 and 111

The futaba is like 0.11 and 83

How much room exacly do you gain?

Quite a bit....Its not really a downgrade unless you need a servo that as fast as the one your running.The 9550 is a nice servo in a small package.

First of all how do you think you know what cars i have got and what cars i have raced? I have used my 414WC on a few occasions and was mightally dissapointed to say the least, as was the whole Tamiya UK team. The car seemed to lack duration and speed despite using Reedy motors and Batterys direct from the states. One of these drivers is now a UK national A finalist with a different manufacturer so you cannot say they lacked knowledge. Rick

When we were in Japan i was under the understanding that Murai was the Evo 3 designer, i mush have got this fact wrong. Anyhow My mate is off there on the 19th so i am sure he will do some digging.

Also at the Tamiya Euros and at the Halifax Reedy race Marc Reinharts (spelling) Dad gave the impression that the next tamiya car would be the next evolution of a shaft drive car fixing the current faults of the evo3 gear stripping issues. Rick

If so, which servos did oyu guys use? (Digitla prefered because i have HRS / Can use FM if i have to though )

Look onto the left of the picture. I use the FUTABA 9550 and then I can lay the Rx onto the chassis.

Rick : that was my impression also, from what the TRF driver present at the euro cup final this year told (don't remember his name though).

That's mainly the reason why I said that actually we have no idea what the car will be.

And anyway, we don't really care about who made the Evo 3, right ? As long as the next car is better...

ok.
wcr is world champ replica.
so how is it so bad?
team tamiya dont even have a uk team.
like suzuki,reinhard,surikarn etc.and most of the people in the uk who did drive the 414 said it wasnt any good but it cant be bad bc its world champion.
maybe bad driving or set up skill.
my 414 has never lacked duration or speed.
i think i smell something.
