Just guessing that you are Joven M. Am I right??

if so, can you share your experience at Tamiya final in Japan?? Like besides racing, did you guys get to buy some goodies at the event? Like EvoIII or WCR MII???

Also, when you guys are racing in Japan, is it true that only stick packs are allowed???

Thanks~~~ Please share... it gotta be a exciting event to go to...

Hi TRF-Powered,
Racing in Japan for me, was THE best r/c experience ever. Not only racing in a great atmosphere but the people there in Japan were top notch and the food was delicious. They were nice, helpful and funny. They had numerous parts we couldnt get in the states, so some people from the team got the chance to take advantage of that plus with a 30% discount. after the races, basically we just toured shizuoka, and tokyo. The tour of Tamiya Japan was cool too. I actually got the chance to fiddle around with the evo III that was on display that the race. The drivetrain is unbelievably smooth and pretty light too. And yes, any tamiya stick pack is only allowed. The new Tamiya 3300hv batts that were the handouts, were pretty impressive. I would love to go back someday.

Good Luck! JM

Ditto what Joven said if you get the chance it is the greatest R/c experience you can have. If asking would have got us the EVO 3 all 4 of who went would have about 3-4 EVO's each there was no way no how we could get one yet as for the WCR's they aren't around unless you happen to luck on one sitting on a shelf. There was alot of limited release 04 and Mini parts at the show to get and they just popped up yu had to keep an eye on the for sale area all the time

From my observation:
Gear Box:
It will be similar to the TG10 gear box. You just need to unscrew 4 screws and the ball diff is out. Unlike the TB EVO 1 and 2 series which needs serious screwing to take it out.
Spur Gear:
It uses a special spur gear adapter which you can make use of the 48pitch or 64 pitch spur gears. I have the adapter for the spur gear but I can't seems to find the correct spur for my TB Evo2. It is made by CROSS
Arms:
Similar to those of the 414 and Ta04.
Weight:
Should significantly lighter than the EVO2 series.

Well hopefully, this car is able to change the roll centre as well just like the 414M series. Keep our fingers cross

When i was at the tamiya worlds Surikarn said that at the moment the 414 is faster than the evo III but he thinks with a bit more development the evo III might be faster. When he was testing the evo III at the tamiya test track the tyre wear seemed really heavy with loads of tyre dust in the shell. Rick

Hey rtypec,
do you have a good setup for the 414 at socal? Also what class are you racing in. Ill talk to Fred and see if he wants to run it. Maybe we could have a Tamiya take over at socal.

Wassup Fandango err Fangio. I just got back from Tamiya with all of the parts to make a 414WCR From what I've heard, Fred has a really good hi-roll-center setup for Socal. As for a stock 414, believe it or not the basic setup works really well there. Yellow springs f/r, 50weight oil f/r, 5mm ride height f/r, yellow sway bars, 3mm droop all around (adjust accordingly). That's pretty much it, and smooth driving My new project is a 414WCRR (World Champ Replica Replica and hopefully it'll be ready by then.
