Yes and no

Maybe yes, since 414 heads are usually grip heads (the car's intended purpose). But ya, I admit I've posted too many drift specific questions. Sorry. I'll just stick with the more common parts-compatibility questions then

No, since this is the best thread with the most knowledgeable and experienced 414 people that know which components (from other Tamiya cars) are adaptable and compatible with the 414s (important aspect and information, for both drift and grip...basically, 414 upkeep and parts usage, spares and compatibility).

...and that'll be on a full carbon, aluminum and high-quality Tamiya chassis (No Eagle or Sakura stuff). Nicely balanced with center mounted motor and battery.

Idk about you...but <$300 for a Tamiya TRF chassis that's drift capable, sounds a LOT cheaper than those $500 chassis kits you've listed.

You also forgot..those chassis you've listed aren't really modded much and people STILL need to buy the parts I've listed. The chassis you listed are basically front bias layout and balanced for drift (and not much else). They still don't have WA front axles, WA steering, CS ratio overdrive, etc. If you search or read threads/blogs, people with those drift kits Still end up modifying for more WA.

So my current 414M car, and also my plan for mild (and reversible) drift mods, is cheaper and at the same time high quality.

Yes, your car is a drift 414M.

Ok then, since you want to start a new modality, I suggest that you start a thread with that specific topic (414M drift) or post in another site specific to drifting.

I think that EDWARD2000's reply is correct. That way, you (and I) will not sidetrack the topics here saying that the 414M, 404x, 414x, 414 are touring cars and not drift cars.

Here's another 414M specific question:

My 414M didn't come with the stock plastic battery holder/mounts parts. Does anyone know the Tamiya part number for those 414m stock parts; or, a battery holder/mount that fits (without needing to drill)?

I bought battery velcro straps (for now); but I would like something more solid-holding and cleaner looking. Note: I am using stick-packs.

I believe you bought the worlds edition. The bottom deck came from the factory with the holes already removed from the chassis that holds those plastic parts. You'll have to design your own.

Yes, I have the WE. And yes, there seems to be no holes (except for slit-holes for straps). I guess straps are fine

Btw, Juan...I read your older post about Evo5 spools and Evo6 gear-diffs fitting very good on the 414M. Let's say if I wanted to put a rear spool in my 414M (for drift), which Spool do you think would fit better in the rear and which should I get - the Evo5 or Evo6 spool? (since the Evo6's gear-diff fits perfectly; I'm guessing the Evo6's related spool would be the same...I could be wrong though)

Thanks

The Evo5 spool fits the best, but the Evo4 spool works really well all so. The Evo6 diff basicly drops right in. But the belt is slightly of centered. I purchased some 15t aftermarket pulleys to fix that problem. But since the gear diff is going in the front. You won't notice the diff pulley not being centered much. And since your drifting the chassis and racing it. It will be just fine. I can't remember at the moment, but there is a company that makes 32t pulleys out of metal that will work awesome for you. Will help with the bling factor as well. There chrome with Tamiya Blue on them. Should help you alot. You'll need (2) oneway pulleys for what your trying to do
