I'd rather have a nice solid aluminum Rear spool, than a ghetto diy tape/card-stock kinda thing. But I guess I'll cut up some card-stock for the mean time.

As for the front one-way...the 414M already comes with one stock
I have my doubts it would fit. But I could be wrong.

Otherwise, there would be some 414/TA04 owners who went that route and posted it online.

All I see is that they locked their diffs and that's it. It's the best way to go.

Yes, 414M is an old car - one of those old cars with pretty much all of the info already out there ...BUT you have to remember, most (if not All) of the past & searched history, information and references, is primarily from Grip-racers experimenting with and wanting a spool for only the Front, not/never the Rear.

So, past information for Rear spool fitment, is pretty much null, it seems like.

I can always just JB Weld the dang diff too, haha

Rear ball diffs are easily had anyways (if/when I revert it back to stock/Grip).

I'm watching these too. Cheaper, but at the same time a really high quality brand, and would probably work with the stock shafts.

If you find somebody who did a front spool, then chances are you can do a rear spool.

Remember this too, If what you wanted was a mild CS overdrive, you should have started with a chassis meant for it.

The Sakura D3/D4 is a good platform and I'm sure many who are reading this will agree.

Yes, I've searched this very thread and saw some old posts of a few front spools that fit.

Those Sakuras and Eagle are nice. I'd rather get a nicer brand though, maybe Yokomo or MST

That's good!

Just searched and double checked again to make sure...yes, the Evo4 and Evo5 (better fit of the 2) spools fit in the Front...but, I'm not entirely sure if they fit the Rear.

Good luck.

Let us know how it turned out.

You mentioned that you were on a budget that's why I recommended the Sakura.

I can buy a Yokomo or MST but I would still choose the Sakura D4 for practicality.

What else brands are the really good, high quality, premium made-in-Japan cars? ..I'm not too familiar with all of them. I know there's Yokomo, Tamiya, MST (MST is MIJ right?). Whereas Sakura and Eagle are made in China (meh..not my cup of tea). Any other MIJ cars (not just parts)?

I'm too hesitant on Eagle Sakura stuff. I read too many reviews of subpar quality and poor performing parts (dampers suck, certain parts with bad fitment, etc.). Hence, why I bought a nice Tamiya

Well, to me, the TA06 would have been a good platform to start with because of its design. Good for race and drift. Good deals could be found with a used one I know.

Here are other options:

1. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXCLHW&P=0

2. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBLWC&P=0

3. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBGRT&P=0

4. http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFKEM&P=0


This is purely my opinion. I am sure that there are other options that can be looked into.

Honestly, if you calculate all the parts+your labor+the agony of waiting for parts to come, it might have been better off that you just bought any of the chassis listed above. Again I'm pretty sure you'll find good deals on used ones,

like this

Yokomo SD9 Drift 21.5 USGT Hobbywing ARTR

or this

Brand new Street Jam OTA R31 Drift Car, Many Extra. Real Deal!!

To me, as a Tamiya fan, I would not alter anything on the 414M. I would restore it yes but not make it a drifter.

Maybe you'll see what I mean when you get your car.

Maybe you should look at posting your drift ideas in a drift thread

We should stop talking about other cars too, since this is after all a 414 thread.
