Sounds interesting, my 414's have retired to the shelf (Although my 414m2 still gets a run from time to time).

please post pics of what you are thinking of doing, it will be great to see, and I think i have enough spares to build a spare car, so I might change my mind later on.

Please respond with your feed back.
I support the idea that you make a chassis for the short batteries, I have made my own version but used 416 WE parts instead and a drifting car motor mount. Some of you found it some pages back

I like this car so much that I sold my 417 and won't buy the 417X, the first time in 5 years that it happens I won't buy a new TRF TC this year. Instead I will put all the money into this project instead.

I'm personally not capable of drawing the design. But, I know a few that are. The shock towers will be redesigned with more shock holes and either more camber link holes or metal mounts that connect to the shock tower, so the camber links will be adjustable like all the modern tamiya cars.

Default TRF414M2 for Sale

Hi, I just reassembled two spare TRF414M2 from parts for sale soon so I'd figure if anyone is interested here.

One of them is in great shape with the upgraded SSG chassis and Worlds front sway bar set.

The other one is assembled from spares.

The rest are spare parts for TRF414M2 including bulkheads, arms, etc.
