PLEASE say it's only a blue edition! I just got my 414M, too! I do like the silver version better, though.

I'm with you guys, the Blue edition just doen't have the same sort of originality to it now, because the original on had the sliver alloy which kept it separate from the rest. What company makes a Pro car with natural looking alloy?
How are everyone's 414M's going, getting good results?
Also where did you get that pic from, Joehwee?

I wish it was an updated chassis instead of a cosmetic change. The blue is ugly IMO.

Rccarracer: I been running my 414M for 3 races now, out of the 3 races I won the 1st race, TQed the 2nd (but finished 7th as I made some stupid mistake and broke the front outdrive) and TQed and win the last race. I am very happy with the car performance and durability. Btw i have been driving the car without any one-way.

What's so secretive about just a website?

rccaracer, Check Tamiya Japan's website. It's in there.

One of Tamiya America's top officials posted on the Yahoo Tamiya TRF club that the 414M2 is the same as the 414M but with blue anodized parts. No other changes.

That TRF414M2 uses the Lightweight Delrin outdrives and black steel turnbuckles, too! Will they be included?

Dear All,

Do any of you use a Hitec servo with your 414M kit? If you do, could you let me know, which servo horn you use for your servo saver (as you know there are 2 types, i.e. Futaba and KO included in the kit)?

I am using the Futaba type. Though it fits, but I am still not convince that the Futaba servo horn has the same number of teeth as the Hitec type, based on my past experience.

Can somebody please assist?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
