Sorry mate no go, had the problem when I broke a CVD, and had to order replacements from Tamiya Japan.
It is just to short on every corner of the car.

probably because of the adjustable toe function on the 414M.. i think its the toe blocks that causes this.. you can actually try other brand universals... maybe yokomo?

I know Yok CVD's don't fit, they are to long, but I have heard that Atlas CVD's for their YM34 fit, but haven't tried them.

RCCarRacer,

I think it's because the 414M's outdrive is shorter than the one that belongs to TA04. So, unless you use TA04's outdrive for your 414M's diff units, the alum. lightweight universal shafts that is meant for TA04 will be too short.

Is it true that the new 414M2 is more like a TA04R hopped up to max? I heard that M2 share the same screw pattern with TA04R for the bottom chassis. is this true?

I replaced my Front One Way with a TA04 Ball Diff, and works fine.

The 414M2 is said to be the same (except the blue parts.) On the Yahoo! TRF Club, a representitive said that current 414M owners shouldn't be worried. However, he mentioned something about it being sold at Hobby Shops. If they mass-produce it to sell at hobby shops, it will give away the "secrecy" of the car!

Can you give me the url for that Yahoo TRF club?

Are you guys talking about the front oneway outdrives (sorry I didn't read the whole thread). If it is, I think Tamiya sell them.

Tryed that as well, but no cigar, still to short. I have the TA04 outdrive front and rear because I run a full 4WD setup. I think what ME-student said could be the problem.

The reason why TA04 cvd's dont work is because of the pivot blocks. They make the car wider then a ta04. The diffs are all the same. Its the spacing of the block that makes the car wider and moves everything else out that much further.

Agree, that's why my TA04R was only 182mm wide!
