No, the stock ones are tamiyas regular steel turnbuckles.
And there is a weight difference, if you take all the stock ones out and then compare the with the set of lunsford Ti turnbuckles there is a big difference!

Where to find Lunsford parts for TRF 414M ?

I had a look on Lunsford website and didn't find any references for TRF 414M nor TA04.

Ralf...you pretty much have to measure your TAMIYA turnbuckles and go to your LHS and buy them one by one. There is no set for the 414M. Most of the stores sell them for about $4-5 each. There is Technacraft and Lundsford brands. I think Technacraft ones have the one hole in the center and the Lundsford has it where you can use a wrench.

In case Yokomo could be your alternatives, here are what you need (with the condition of both front and rear upperlink are mounted on shock tower):

YOK-ZCTB20 Ti Turnbckl 20mm Pair Steering
YOK-ZCTB25 Ti Turnbckl 25mm Pair Front Upper Link
YOK-ZCTB27 Ti Turnbckl 27mm Pair Rear Upper Link
YOK-ZCTB35 Ti Turnbckl 35mm Pair Front Support


Just for info, I do not think TRF414M2 comes with lightweight outdrives. Here what it says on the outside sticker (Japanese Version Box) : Body, Dodge Stratus made by Protoform company* Sticker for Body* Masking seal for window* Wing* TRF sticker* Aluminum Swing Shaft* Lightweight Suspemsion Ball* Wheel Wrench* Hex Wrench DDriver* Turnbuckle Wrench.

Thank you guys for the infos,

I thought that TRF414M2 comes with Delrin outdrives, the LHS told me that and when you look at the pictures on Tamiya website you can see them in Delrin.

Did someone buy the new TRF414M2 can confirm the outdrives are in Delrin ?

I GOT MY NEW AVATAR!


Anyway, Has any of you tried the mod of putting the front roll bar on the upperdeck? I understand that I will need to purchase a set of rear roll bars. I have seen on magazines that an extra hole has to be drilled on the front arms to accomodate the ball studs. However I have heard that I could also use the hole at the front of the castor blocks. Which one works better?

About the differences on which holes to use, I have no idea. But the upper front sway bar did gives more steering respons (don't know how much more either as I also relocating the servos positions).

I'll try to get my camera working again and share some pics.

I assume the black box is Japanese version that comes with everything. It's equal to about SGD700 here in Surabaya, Indonesia.

Winnie was selling the Japanese Version at SGD1050 when she has it about a month ago. SGD8++ still consider high I think.
