imataquito,

The diff. grease (white clear color) is too light/thin for differential. The black grease (you apply to susp. ball) is too heavy/thick for such differential ball.

So what you need is somewhere in the middle in viscosity (near the black grease I prefer) for use when building differential gear.

I'm using Omega Brand (do not know the part number since it is given by local friend) and uses differential sticker cover (I believe Atlas make one for TA04 which is the same with 414M, but you could always made one yourself).

Has been tried in one day practice + 2 days race without cleanning and proves to be running smooth, still.

This idea may not be new, but I do not recall reading in this thread. Shouldn't be wrong to mention then

Edited: Lubricant Enggineerings, Inc - General Purpose #1223 should works fine.

try using the yokomo super diff lube... It's purpose made (designed for R/C) and it is thicker than all the diff lubes that I've seen on the market. Have had a lot of success with it on my M2 as well as on the Yoke I had before it.

Do you guys find new setups or tricks that work best for 414M?

PS: Use external grade grease for differential + sticker cover for smooth long lasting run.
#1 is used in tamiya adds and box shots for the wcr.

I don't think they would produce more then one #0001.....possibly in the higher numbers where people may not notice, but that is not Tamiya's style.

Very nice BK, have you removed the Anti-dive for the nats or are you keeping it?

Looks like it on the back, so I'm guessing you are?

black knight: nice car !!!
how did u make the car look green ??
hm ..... how much anti squat are u runing on the rear ??

if u r running 0 degrees how high did u raise the suspension up in the rear??

i am curently running rear front at 3mm and rear rear at 2 mm it helped gain rear end bite and gives more stearing off and on power ...

pyramid: hm ..... never tried those grease... tried those avalible in cans like soft99 grease spray .... not holding up too well so i used genaral purpose grease ... brown suff which is *quite* thick
and it works good ...

diff cover?? never seen one ...got a pic ??

it looks greenish because certain bluemetals reflect like that with a camera flash. I'll take some pics today without flash so that the blue shows up correctly.

antisquat, i have 2mm extra spacing for the forward rear block. 0 degrees was in referenc to front kickup.

black-night,

congrats on the car.. just for your info, original placement of front stabilizer holes in A arms is 2mm to far from the shock. After 3 bats, both of your inner edge rims and stab plastic cup will be broken.

Solution: drill new holes on front A arms 1mm nearer to the shock (more than 1mm will hit the shock itself) and use 1mm red spacer in wheel hub or use thicker wheel hub.
