Both cars are very close,For me the Xray is alot more aggressive going into a turn(c hubs) it also has better accelration(with the 1.77 pulley kit) and has more room for the radio gear.You can win with both cars,but where I race at parts are easier to get for my 414 than the Xray.

Whoops I thought you were talking about the saddle pack mounts.

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
just to clarify on the confusion of names: in japan there is a Masayuki Miura who was on the development team of the 404, 414 chassis. He moved to HPI. I doubt he was involved in the Evo3. At HPI there is another japanese team driver called Masayuki Murai who is also an A Main driver.

Hi Guys,

To all the 414 and 04 driver/owner: What are the difference between the 414 and the 04? Since they are both belt drive which one is a better kit?

some comments on this thread are so biased n intolerant. Some made it worse by 'pretending' to know everything, while d fact is almost none of d comments were correct.
-M.Miura (not M.Murai, d long time HPI member, now Sales Director) never designed any of d 414series. Mr.Miura was d test driver, who helped develop d 414family.
-TB series were totally designed by Mr.Hara, Mr.Miura never involved in d projects, Mr.Suzuki was d test driver.

-TRF414's drive train is one of d smoothest in d market. if one has difficulties in making it smooth, then one can only say that they lack d skill n experience in building RC racing cars.
-TRF JAPAN incl. Surikarn never experienced any run time problems due to drive train etc.
-TRF415 is real, if u would come to d Reedy Asia 15-16Nov, u could see some of them up close
-TRF415 is a complete different project. not a member of 414family

I guessed Kyew posted his, while I was typing my previous posting. just a small correction: M.Miura is a member of Hot Bodies. ok, we know they r a family member of HPI, but just to be precise ;-)

To mr TRF racer and others

this name calling crap is getting old.

Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion.

You don't agree, so what I for one don't care.

Let's move on, jeez it's only toy cars.............

Of course, everyone is entitled to his/ her own opinion.
But there's a difference between opinion and facts.
You don't confuse people by spreading wrong facts about who is who and who did / does what.

you are right of course, but I think we lose sight that we are all fans of these toy cars, and just like to talk about them.

I can't see the point in arguing about it...
sure doesn't make me want to come on to this forum.

I was looking at the pictures on the new TRF415 thread. The car looks very real. But it looks to me like several of the suspension parts are shared with the current TRF cars as well as some design features (e.g. suspension blocks for the hinge pins). Is everything new or is some stuff reused?

Are you still involved with the World Champ? What's his take on the car?

The advice you gave in the early days of this thread still helps me today. Thanx.
