Hey guys. I need some help. I've inherited a 414MII from a friend but it needs some parts. I've been looking around and can't find a hobbyshop that carries them around. Appreciate if you could point me to where I can get parts for this car online. Thanks.

Yep its 2mm. I would also say you are better running the evo blocks than the 414 blocks as i have seen someone snap one of the rear corners off there 414 when running raised roll centers when they were t boned. I do not think this would have happened with the evo 3 blocks but you never know the block might have bent but a block is cheaper than a chassis. Rick

I raised the rear of the 414M 10mm and the front 6mm. What a difference~! The car was fast and easy to drive~! (We'll for me at least).

my center one-way died!!!!
anyway, got a question for you all again
was wondering what effects it will have if i keep my front one way in, but change the center one way to a fixed pulley? will this totally stuff up the handling?
also, any chances of fixing the center one way? it slips when accelerating (not supposed to of course!) soak it in motor spray? metho?
cheers!

There's no fix, the one way bearing is dead. Maybe you can try to find the same one way bearing and try to change it...

Anyway, using a pixed pulley will not change the car provided your front one way is equally free on both sides. If for any reason one side gets locked, then your car will be undriveable.

damn one ways cost an arm and leg here in australia!
so if my front one way is equally free, there's no need for a center one way?

Not really, but you're never sure nothing will go in your front one way and lock one side. However, it never happened to me...

Probably this has been asked before but this thread is too large to search. Does anyone know if the XRay (saddle pack) battery hold-down bar can be used on the 414w with some modifications? Any comments greatly appreciated.

Yes it can, no modifications are required but the screws do not quite sit flush with the bottom of the chassis, you might want to countersink a section of the 'tape slot'
