Look for a TA04 for sale. Couldn't cost more than $25. The TA04 center pulley is better in my opinion than the 414 center pulleys

Couldn't I just grind a notch, or drill a dimple, further out on the stock 414M center-shaft?

Even if I pushed the spur-holder out 8mm, there is still plenty of room left on the stock 414M center-shaft for the spur-holder to hold onto and be in place without any wiggle (like a good 10mm of shaft left still).

You wouldn't have to go 8 mm. That would be to far I think. Install 8mm and the motor plate. Then then drill or make the flat spot for the set screw just past the motor plate. Give it a shot. It should work

I actually did just that, a few hours ago (notched a flat slot with a saw) . Worked well and looks much better now (though, I still want a proper TA04 center-shaft).

I can actually use the top screw now and it even has good clearance. I also used 7mm worth of spacers (I might add 1mm more...8mm really seems like the perfect spacing for a Tekin Redline Gen2 motor). Look very nicely centered.

If you run a spoil or a diff in the front. The car rotates a lot better moving the camber links to shock tower. I usually use the longest hole on the top all around

And just bend the motor tabs slightly up so they don't scratch the bulkheads

Ya, I'm gonna bend the tabs when I solder and wire everything up. Don't want to cause any electrical mishaps either.

Since you removed the front diff, what are you going to do to get the gear ratio correct? I broke a belt on my tc one time and the car went half as fast. Just wondering what your plan is to resolve it as I like the Idea of a rwd tc chassis.

See my reply in my other thread.

It's going to be a Rwd drifter mainly.

Anyone know if the EVO4 blue steering arm (left and right) fit the TRF414M? They look quite similar.

My 414M WE came with these 2 rear/rear blocks. Can someone please tell me what they mean and how much toe-in they each are supposed to provide?





At first, I had the blue 3-dot one installed. But, I found it had too much toe-in and gave me too much straight-line correction and stability. I then, installed the silver 1-dot block yesterday, to give me less toe-in. (also note: the rear/front block has no dots/markings).


My goal/desire is to have both 0 and 1 rear toe-in to play around with. Do I need new blocks to get 0 or 1?

3 dots should mean 3' toe in the rear of the rear toe block (also known a RR). This will give you 3' total, if you are running 0' rear hubs.

The front of the rear toe block (also know as RF block) should have no markings, as it is the pivot point for where the rear toe is measured.

Hope this helps sort things out. Remember , put aw grease on the suspension shafts before they go into the toe blocks!
