Tamiya was leading most of the qual. and heat in the reedy race. I think Surikarn had a few understeering problems. But notice here team mate came second place. The 415 is preety sucessful in its first outing. I guess there going to evaluate the car based from this race, so expect a few change heheheee

Does anyone know where I can buy the stock black carbon chassis? Haven't seen one on ebay and Tamiya USA wants $112 bucks. I got the SSG chassis but it doesn't take stick packs.
Any pointers will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Poop, you can either go with the E3 blocks or the WCR blocks. I have not personally tried the E3 blocks. The WCR block is a bit weak, one tap and this might twist specially if you elevate this with shimms. Looking at the E3 blocks this also might cause some problems with the steering links if shimmed. I used the original silver block and filed this down in an angle to clear the belt. i also used another belt tensioner w/c came std with the 414M2 S edition.

Default even more q's from me :)

Hi all,

thanks for your help so far!
i visited this hobby shop yesterday when the guy inside kept on showing off that his car's (a corally) wheels can carry on spinning off the ground for over 10secs with just a slight push (with no motor connected). when i got home, i tried that on my car (trf414m) and only the front one ways will carry on spinning for only a very short time after leaving the floor
can your car free spin for over 10seconds? how did you do it? i've already tried lubing all bearings with some good ball bearing lube, although much better than before, still aint as free as the "show-off's" corally

It's not about how many seconds your car can spin. It's about how well you can drive!

Yeah Stonedgti is right, plus if the car was an Assassin, the car's just crap. It seems free, but there are parts touching everywhere when the car is running. One of my good friends had one of the first ones, and out of the box he lost 1 minute of run time compared to his TC3. He had to work a lot on the drive train to get a satiffying result. Also, materials are crap, especially for the arms. Delrin is just not a good material, too much sensitive to heat, not strong enough... From one run to another, the car is not the same, a real lack of consistency. My friend just stopped using it after 4 months and got back to his TC3... and his results.

Anyway, about the 414, there are some tips, and I'm going to write an article with all the tips I found to increase the 414M's handling. I'll let you know when it will be online.

Just show this guy how a TRF 414 M works on the track, he'll be surprised...

RCSpeedo:
i guess that means i must do a bit of body mod then i really dont want to cut things on such a beautiful car

Cobra81li200:
but he must have done something special to his bearings for them to seem to spin forever right? and that's what i want to achieve seeing that i must run a johnson 27t motor at my club so anything that could put less strain on the motor would equate to more power to the ground.

any tips on freeing up my drivetrain? so far, i've taken out one side of the metal bearing shields and lubed it with some bearing lube. it seems to have really loosened up the bearings so i was wondering if taking out both sides of the metal shielding off would free it up even more? hehehe.
do any of you do this or is it not recommended because of all the crap that could potentially go in to seize the bearings?

i'll be looking forward to your guide too!
thanks again for all your help guys! i really appreciate it

One shield is ok, the other ne it's not recommended...

Have you tried Microlon ? It's a metal treatment made to reduce friction, and especially dynamic friction. It works very very well and it has been introduced to the RC industry by HPI (Microlon is a very big company and the product is well known in car racing).

Yes you can, when i use to use foam tires for my 414 use to put some ellegi 26mm tires all around. It requires some shims due to some rubbing in the ball cups.

Im assuming your going to be running foamies
