Your're also a collector like me.

If ever you decide to assemble will you run it?

I just received a beautiful Tekin Gen2 10.5T motor for it. And, since it's a modern brushless, it doesn't quite fit. What's the best solution to make it fit? It's off by only a couple millimeters. Do I just add Spacers between the bulkhead and motor mount?

Yes. If you can find a TA04 center shaft. You will be able to completely center the motor

Ended up using 4mm of spacers for the motor-mount (5-6mm would work better; but then the motor mount plate would hit the spur-gear-holder), and 2mm of shims between the spur-gear-holder and motor-mount so it doesn't rub.

Thanks. I'll keep my eye-out on that center-shaft.

And, how many millimeters of spacers to make it "perfectly" centered with the aforesaid shaft?

Depends on the motor. But 7mm-8mm

Didn't know that TA04 center-shaft part is rare/expensive until now. Plus, another $25 for the required spur-gear-holder (since it's different than the 414M). Making it a total of $50+ just for that small TA04 center-shaft upgrade.

I think I'll pass, and just stick with the stock 414M center-shaft, with the upper motor-mount screw removed (to give room for the spur-holder).

I use the 414m spur gear holder. Tighten the set screw into the hole where the pin goes. Works perfect. And I highly recommend installing all 3 screws in the motor plate

Ah..cool to know I can use the same 414m spur holder.

But there's gotta be an alternative center-shaft that works. Maybe Yokomo, Overdose, MST or other Tamiya car. The only TA04 center-shaft is a whopping $50 bones on ebay :/

If anyone is interested, I'm considering parting ways with my 414M updated chassis. No time to race it and rather have someone else keep it on the track. It's a great car and performs nicely. Won its first outing. pm me if interested.
