year i thought that but in reality iy is quite different
i use to have hot bodies and tamiya and we used to interchange prts a bit and i thought that was cool too
1 belt per month 1 drive shaft every two weeks that was life
Then we bought the Serpent for my son of Walters Hobbies . and the first thing we noticed was how much it reacted to any adjustment.
the car is responsive to adjustments.
being used to buying prts here in aus you tend to buy a lot going to a new car so i bought the 4 corners.....the price was half what id been putting up with from one of the other leading brands and our supplier always has prts in stock so with no + packaging +waiting i was rapped
and so we have travelled forward and culled of the other brands two years ago
We have now 3 411 of different vintages and they all can be set up between VTA...21.5.....MOD at will
they all respond to adjustment and the optional prts well
They have been converted at times to prime an secondary to allow us to set up quicker by arriving with two different cars ready to go.
The fact that the olders one respond similar to the later car is a credit to the manufacturer
Spare prts consumption is down and as for the diff its not the issue as its durability and consistency make up for any of its other faults.
Our suppliers support and this forum are the reason we have stuck with the 411.
hope this helps your choice and you enjoy some quality racing time
