Default Finally Complete

I'd like to thank board member Nipple, for helping me complete my 414




Anyone have the Tamiya greenish-blue type setting wheels. I have some unused sealed 414 setting wheels for trade. I'd rather buy them though

X414X: nice ride man, glad you finally finished it . it looks like new!

Does the original 414 use titanium screws or steel screws?

Thanks icon.

I'm still lost about the type of countersunken screws. Any help? I'm pretty sure they aren't titanium, but not sure if hex or phillips head. I do know it has too many heavy ass steel cap screws.

whats up ppl's. i'm gonna switch my turnbuckles to titanium from the regular steel turnbuckles from my trf414m2 kit. but i'm thinking of using associated's tc3 blue anodized titanium turnbuckles. however, those turnbuckles are 4mm and not the tamiya metric 3mm size. so i'm forced to use different ball cups. and someone suggested using RPM blue ball cups. BUT, i tried to pop one of the RPM blue ball cups on the ball connectors, and the ball connectors are too big! is there a way to switch the ball connectors? so i can use the rpm ball cups? or am i forced to keep the tamiys ball connectors? :\ thanx.

x414x, great to see you've finished it....
I know that the whole 414 series uses hex screws for all the countersunk machined screws. All tappers are phillips head.
Still trying to figure out what they are made of....

i just thought it'd be cool to have both blue turnbuckles and ball cups.... but i guess i'll just have to use the lunsford... . the tc3 ball studs are 14mm long and the tamiya ball studs are 17 . anyway, thanx for ur help. peaches.

how are the stock tamiya screws? do they strip easy or are they tough? and one thing bothers me, what original tamiya body would fit the 414. it seems tamiya has a bad habit of predrilling holes on their touring car bodies for their specific cars (TA series, TB series, etc).

Tamiya screws aren't bad, but there are better...
As far as I know all Tamiya bodies are predrilled for their regular series cars. For the 414 series you will have to redrill the holes to suit.....
Good Handling Tamiya bodies include the NSX, GT-R and the best in my opinion so far, the Ferrari Modena....
