Yea I race at RCO sometimes. I plan on being there soon. Although after January I will probably be there a lot because I want to get ready for the TCS race there. I plan having a 04-R. Are they legal?

Hehehe! Thanks for the compliments.

Well I finally DID break something on the 414M. I broke the torque rod ballstud in the caster block. Time to get some new TA04 blocks. This car is INCREDIBLY durable.

As for my bazillion Tamiyas, here are some shots of my super TB01! The camera is kind of crappy. The "williams" folder is with my new camera and has a bunch of really great shots of the FW23 that I took a few days ago.

Do you really want a 414X? I know a guy who has one that has never been run. Somebody on rctouring wanted one but that board vanished before I could track down his email. Send me a pm if you are seriously interested. I finally have his email

Also, does anybody know what or if there is a replacement nut for the threaded shocks? I don't like the dual setup because my fingers are to fat.

Anyone ever try to put the toe-in (1.5 degree; the one with a dot on it) block for the suspension in the front block of the rear suspension instead of just putting in the rare block of the rear suspension?

Issac- yeah the 04-R is legal in the GT3 class w/ the silver can motor. The hot setup Chris gave me last night is blue springs up front, white in the rear, 70-100 weight oil all around, 3 on the Associated droop guage.
Also don't try the car without the torque rods, the car has no steering at all.... The Alteeza body is stuck, but has more steering and slightly less top end. I will be triing the Ferrari 360 Modena soon.



I really like RCO they are good people up there. Hope to see you there, they have 2 TA04-R's in stock right now incase you are interested

GT-1 or GT-2. I don't think there is a GT-3.

Talking YEAH GT-3....

Yeah GT-3, they kinda made their own class for the weekly races, cause they have cars that wouldn't be able to compete in the gt-1 or gt-2 classes, that way any tamiya car w/ any tamiya hop-up can race in that class. Instead of having 2-3 classes with only 1-2 racers, thay place them all in GT-3.... I will be there this weekend, if all goes well, if you have time stop by.....

IMPACTPLAYR, what's torque rods? Are those the rods connecting the upper deck to the front carriers?

TIA!

I own a 414 and you can`t copare the ta04 to it. (I am a good driver) but the ta04 is a good car, but its not 414 series.

I saw on Tamiya's website about TRF414M. There is a pic of David Jun's TRF414M at reedy race. He as some kinda of blue threaded shock and his front bumper is very different from the stock bumper. Anyone has any idea what that blue shock and front bumper are???

if so, please also give the part number for it.

I think the front bumper is just the TA04R's bumper with the top bumper holder piece... is that right???

The bumper and the plate that holds it aren't TA04 parts, I believe that the dampers are standard TRF units only they have been annodized.
