With all the crazy prices these days...I can't wait till Tamiya came out with 414M3 or any evolution of 414 after these ones *sigh*

Well the kit is around 42,000 yen here.. And they are in plently in the shops here.

geetoo: trade my 414 with your surikarn? have you assembled it already? i might pass by MRCS this sunday, hope to see it in action also, do you think there will be a conversion kit for the 414M? not necessarily the aluminum bulkheads because those might be expensive, but the other hopups?

Great car with MAD corner speed with full diffs in the car. I couldn't believe what I saw. If the guy at my track puts oneways in his car the race for 2nd will be great. I'm a die hard Losi guy but I have to give credit where credit is due.

You can buy all the World's cars hop ups (except maybe the gunmetal colored dampers and motor plate w/serial #) and apply them to a 414m2 (that you can get for around $250-275) and it'll be cheaper than the 477-550 for importing a World's car.

If you still want the Worlds car, I've seen many on eBay and you can alway ask Hiro (link in my previous post)

You think that's bad? Some idiot just bought one for $650 off of Ebay... I love the 414, but not that much. Thought the World's would be a good chance for me to finally come back to the 414, but I'm spoiled by shaft now. I've got the Evo2 working really well now, especially in mod.

So you run XRay? We just got in the new aluminum hubs. One of the factory XRay drivers here had them a month ago and finally we can get them. The car is MUCH more predictable with them and seems to accelerate much better. That and they look great!

Is it true that the 414m2S are now allowed to compete in the TCS? I'm hoping, coz its so unfair they allow the TB evo2 which is very comparable to the m2 in terms of alum bulkheads and parts.
