Surikarn Chaidajuria can hardly speak english. Maybe just a few. He is 22 and a son of a reputable lawyer in bangkok. I heard he's father covers most the expenses during race and just a few from TRF. Hmmm.

It seems that tamiya is doing some hard pushing for non japanese drivers these days.

actually, I believe the rear belt is the one that's different. Although there is some debate about the front belt: the 414M2 kit gives you the TA04 frontbelt (and the 414M-specific rear belt) whereas the 414M came with both belts being 414M specific parts.

but anyway...

the suspension hinge pins (the longest ones holding the suspension together) are also longer than the TA04.

The two cars are by no means very similar... I'm sure I'm missing quite a bit of stuff out. If you're attempting to piece a 414M together, you might want to double-check!

Well I'm sure that Tamiya will be falling over themselves to promote Surikarn now......just like they did with Dave Jun!!!!!!

Congratulations!

It's good to see tc racing being competitive and factories are forced to work really hard to come up with ever advanced new models.

Thank you.

I am looking for stronger and smoother bearings for racing.

Have you tried bearings from other companies than Tamiya?
