well, i saw a real 414X a few years ago when it came out. My friend got one and built it up. it was so nice. everything functions smoothly. unfortunately 500+ was not the type of money i could come up with back then. i'd trade my kawahara RR for that car.

Usagi,

Any idea how many units were made for the TRF414f?

What would a front motor 414 look like?

the first series of the 414x and 414 were limited,

414x american they said 250 to 500 in the usa
414 japanese they said 1500 to 5000 maded

But I swear the higher number is the true production running around the world these days. But other will say this is not true.

500 or 500,000 made. doesnt do me any good if they are all beaten, abused, and no longer available . i'm so jealous of my friend who had the 414X.

I know, but since there is no real proof that tamiya produced the lower number, the higher is a more real numer.
