Hehe... I got the same response from people who saw me with the kit last Friday... all thought the white box came with the kit bacause of it's "perfect" fit... well, actually, it came from a Trinity Hauler bag... really good to keep the wcr box in tip-top shape for years! =)

Naaaah... think I know my Tamiya better than that!! Have seen the WCR on the store shelf before, its only got the colour sleeve on top of the black carrybox.

(why I didn't BUY that WCR then I'm still wondering...)



Good to know, I think Trinity sells spare cardboard too but not cheap.
As you say, its great to prevent NIB shelf-wear & roadrash.

Tamiya has a 3-tier bag too, but I think its boxes are exact same size of the 414 box. If one chucked out the cardboard one can fit 3x 414s into the canvas shell.

well i've been in the hobby since august 2002 only, i've had my 414M for one month only, i used to qualify in the c-mains using a hand me down motor and crumy tamiya bats, now, with a better motor (p2k2) and gp bats i have been qualifying for the b-mani, missing the a -mains by a few whiskers, our track is flooded with U.S. based cars, mostly tc3s and losis, i hope to do better in future races.

we were supposed to have a big race this saturday, but, having an outside track, the weather was just uncooperative, hence, it was postponed to the 14th of june, i'll keep u posted on my porgress and that of other trf runners here.

I did get lighter which allowed to play around with the weights.

I have some old pics, before I made all the latest improvements.

Have a look..

ok, i thought it would make the car faster. by the way nice ride dude. do u still have your lower and upper deck? our track is kinda rough and abrasive so i need to keep a spare set of upper and lower decks, i've been havng problems securing them.

414's look super nice in SSG!

You won't feel any significant speed increase/decrease. Aluminum diff pullies have more rotational mass - more theoretic top speed. It's just a matter of if you want to spend the money for the looks.

The Front one way diff is new from Tamiya. The original and alumn. pulley won't fit on new one way.

The belt tensioner is made by Square and I use Barracuda R2's antenna stand.


I was going to do more like alumn c-hub, Ti drive shaft, alumn. rear hub, and alumn. knuckle, but I can't use those parts in TCS.

Yep, these are TB EVO Susp.Arm holders. They are also a lot lighter than the blue ones.

More fragile also!
