I picked up a mag over there, and it showed some interesting pics of some Tamiya driver's 414M's, with their suspension arms almost level.

Hey Usagi,

The world replica also comes with tool??? just like the memorial kit??

Rccaracer,

Man, you went home too early. Should've stayed in Tokyo until the release of the M world replica kit which is just one more week!!!. You could've picked up one there. Or did you order one and is expecting one in mail??

Was thinking of it but I picked up another of the original 414M's from Rainbow Ten when I visited Shizuoka instead.
I like it more than with the blue alloy parts!

Hello 414 gurus

Can I use the Aluminum bulkheads for the Current 414s (M and MII) on the older TRF414's chassis? Are the screw points and distances the same?


thanks..

Not that I know of, there are 8 more holes in the 414M chassis in order for the suspension blocks to screw down, and on the 414 the "blocks" were screwed to the bulkheads, and the 414M does not have these holes to accomodate the 414 blocks.
So I'd say no.

Are you sure about the tools for the Worlds kit? I never heard that. Where's a link?

EDIT: There is none says, Hiro

>Is there a TRF414M World Champ Replica (49255) with tools? I heard that there
was on a BBS. For $477 including shipping, which TRF414M WORLD CHAMPION
REPLICA CHASSIS KIT(49255) would I get? One with or without tools (if there
is one)?

Default Tamiya stock motors

Just found out that there will be a hand-out motor for GT-2 class at the Tamiya nats this year (Tamiya won't say which one until week of race). I'm assuming it will be a Tamiya stocker. Anyone have any tuning experience with these (Type R, S &T)? Thanks.

July 31 is the "sent out" day by Tamiya Japan for the world kit.

So if you reserve it in Japan's hobby shop, they would get it in early Aug. If you reserve it in Hong Kong's hobby shop they would get it in around mid Aug.

By the way, Where did you reserve your world kit??? I have been trying to find some shop that still have them, pretty much all shop I asked are booked. Or Very overpriced.

Please share the info if you can. Thanks
