Can anyone inform me of the proper pronunciation?

Tamiya

Ta MY uh
Ta Me uh
Tam yuh

growing up we called them TaMYuh, but, and just getting into the onroad side of racing, im not to sure how to pronounce it, and have heard some slight variations at the track.

whats the correct way?

If you're referring to Japanese the closest would be ta-me-yah, listen here on the opening (nostalgic video btw):

For anything else, whatever works lol.

So I'm curious about the TRF420. I've recently picked up a second hand Kyosho TF7 really cheap. Love the car. Kind of think I should get the TRF to fill my want of a new high end TC.

What are people paying for it?

​​​​​​How does it compare to the TF7?

I have yet to drive it since the weather has been crap here.

Do the K parts just slide over the pulleys or do they snap in somehow?

They slide on. They can move when on the pulley, but once the belts are mounted to it they keep it in place.

Is the yokomo blade fit on tamiya dcj?

What is the size of this yokomo c-blade? 3.5mm or 4mm? Thank you in advance.

I donít think so. The motor mount is more narrow. I will measure up when I get time to confirm it.

This works on the ta07 which uses 419 diffs. Are the other variations of 419's that different?
