Still having no luck finding a 414X. Looked everywhere. I'm reading some of the old posts and i'm getting some mixed figures for the numbers produced. I'm just curious of my odds of finding a new 414X. How many were 414X were produced and how many 414 were produced. Usagi has said there are probably around 1500 to 1700 produced for the 414. I always thought the 414X was produced somewhere between 250 to 500.

From what I heard, There are only 150 414X and all of them are engraved with their own number. Just like the new M2 WC edition.

my friend who did own a 414X said that there should be 500 made. i think the 414 was not as limited as the 414X

Thumbs up 414m2 Worlds Edition Replica!

Has anyone seen the 414m2 Worlds Edition Replica Chassis yet? I heard that Tamiya USA did not order any of these kits.
I know there is only (1700) being made world wide, so I`m wondering if that is true? because I`m from Toronto and did see one at my local hobby shop and I have to say it is so sweeeeeet baby.
So if they are limited to (1700) kits and the U.S. won`t be getting any? then I`m going now to buy one.

Tip: TA04 kingpins! I DNF'ed four or so times in my last race because the screws were unscrewing off the upright (didn't feel like replacing the uprights!) No, the uprights were not stripped. TA04 kingpins (50882) stay on no matter what!

Exactly what I've found out, replaced mine with the 04 kingpins about 2 weeks ago because of the same problem...

I suggest you to go buy it. At least this is the one (limited edition) that matter because of World Camps winning celebration. USD500 is the market price, in case you want to know. If you could get it much cheaper, please do let me know also as I want to have another one for display (or spare, for the worst).

A lot of things are different than the 414M2 including the material of spur gears.

A-arms are hinged on CF plates which are bolted onto the bulkheads...

Default Bulkheads

Perhaps the most distinguishable part?

Note that the deppressed area where the "M" version tie rod bolts onto, is missing.
