(more steering=softer front, harder rear)

wierd.... well nop...... it only happens when u use swaybars .....
i took off swaybars and its back to normal ...
softer front = more stearing but the car somehow does not feel right .......

does the response feels quicker and since the rear is softer it scrubs speed off at the back giving a very very mild handbrake like effect and that why it has more stearing ???


are u actually throwing the rear end out when turning yet the car does not spin out but insteed it pushes stright like a bullet upon acceleration ??

maybe it does have more stearing just that its SLOW and scrubs LOTS of speed off at the turn .... ??



and if i am not mistaken if u take the settings to the extreme ends say the varying springs rates is just too much from front to rear u will get opposite effect from whats to b expected
did lots of homeowrk on this car but theres still lots to do ...
well post anyting u know ... it mite be helpful



try giving exact setups and exact springs used and tires + shock mounting locations

TY

Talking Wanted

No one reads the wanted section and, you guys are my demographic anyway.

All I need is 3 Tamiya Screws. $6 for 3 3x15mm Tamiya screws. These screws have no parts # and came with the 414 and may have come with other older Tamiya kits. Screws must be same as in pic.

Just wanted to find out if anyone has had any problems with the rear belt being a bit on the tight side? I have a brand new 414m2 which has a belt that is tighter than other cars I've had. Stock setup.

out of the box, the rear belt is tight but after a few runs, it seems to loosen a bit. but that's ok, because it doesnt cause any drag. plus, it may be better that it is tight because there is no rear belt tensioner that prevents it from skipping.

...nope, no problems with my rear belt here. Is it "really" tight? Seems weird. There is no other way for it to be that tight. You do have a 15-tooth pulley on the top shaft?

Will they be very expensive?
Are they Hex driver screws?

It would also depend on the track condition (hig/low bite) relate to your car weight. I think that's the most reason why sometimes things are the other way around.

Ok. Maybe I'm not used to the tightness. Hopefully it will wear down a bit and become looser after a few runs. Its not that bad but I can recall that my TA04-R was looser at the rear belt. Maybe the 414m rear belt is not as long.

judging from your signature, I assume you own/have owned a TRF414 and the TRF414M?

If so, is the TRF414 rear belt the same size as that of the TRF414M?

If the 414 is the one with the limited plate number, the belt is much smaller. Even the bulkhead is different in shape and size/holes placement. The 32T diff pulley is much nearer to the 15T center pulley.

Strange, my LHS assured me that the 414 and 414M rear belt is the same. Anyway, if the 414's rear belt is smaller compared to the 414M's, then at least there's a better chance for a remedy (tensioner) than if it requires a bigger belt.

Anybody have a close-up shot of the rear 414M bulkhead? Here's one of a TRF414.
