As with the other pics, this is the only place you can view them at the moment, along with the forum on my website, but there will be a section on the site soon which includes these pics.

Dudes,
what does the "rebound stroke" in the setup sheets mean?

shoemaker: di ka naman nagtatanong ng set-up tifs eh. subukan natin itono yan pare. experiment tayo ng shock mounting positions.

I HAVE A QUESTION GUYS .... does the 414M have adjustments in terms of caster and roll center? i noticed from the pics that there seems to be just one camber link mounting position ... is this true or is there a way to lengthen or shorten the camber links?

rccarracer - If you have any bookstores that import Japanese magazines, you can easily find them there! Here in the Bay Area (California, USA) there are several bookstores selling issues of RCWORLD and RC Magazine as well as special Tamiya magazines.

Potato - It appears to be a custom car as I can see TC3 suspension components and possibly a Cross Pro 3 chassis.

Hi Guys,

I have just finished mounting the front roll-bar of my 414M to the top in a slightly different way of those Japanese driver. Have a look, comment welcome.

Joehwee,

Nice mod!

Got few question for you.
1.Where did you get the blue-block thing that you mount your roll bar?

2. Where can I get the top piece of the front bumper holder???

3. Did you use all titanium screws??

TRF: Thanks and answers to your question are as follows:

1) The blue mount is just a piece of alloy with 2x 3mm hole, the hole to mount the roll bar bracket is treaded.

2) The top bumper mount with the kit, I think it is meant for the TAO4 bumper. What I did was to cut off the two support and reamed the hole to fit.

3) Yes, I have change all my screw to titanium screw.

There are many holes on the both front and rear shock tower to adjust the "RC". About the caster, you can use spacers to rise the block (bulkhead block).

It does more than that. Your steering response will be much faster., also steering is much balance now between left and right. At least that's how I felt.
