Hi all,

Well, I checked Tamiya's website and there are new part release. Tamiya is now making Ti turnbuckles and Ti hex screws. Pretty sweet, but with the name of Tamiya on it, it's not gonna be cheap.

Usagi,

I found few Japanese hobby shop that sells online, and they do have the price around the range that you said. But they were all sold out, far before the release of the car. A lot of them are pre-ordered.

There are only 1700 kits in the world for the 414M world replica.

I just wish i'm living in Japan.........

The TB Evo1/2 chassis is VERY different from the 414M/2. The weight distribution is very rear-biased in the TB chassis. I like to try and shift the weight as far forward as I can on this car to get more steering and get the handling more neutral. If not, what tends to happen is that I end up fighting the weight shift too much when I'm dialing in the suspension. I either have to compromise entry speed or mid/exit grip.

On a loose track, I would replace the front one-way with a ball diff first of all. Then I would try yellows in the front with 50wt and reds in the rear with 40wt. Get your camber back to around 1-2 degrees in the rear and raise your roll center with 2-3mm spacers under the rear blocks and inner/upper links. I would also use a 414M 2-dot rear block to give you more rear toe-in and maybe run 1 degree of front toe-in at the MOST. Run a higher ride height to compensate for the bumps and a higher roll center to adjust for the higher cg. Use soft springs to soak up the bumps but higher roll center to maintain roll stiffness and corner speed. Run long wheelbase.

Keep in mind that these are just my suggestions. I've been working on my friend's Evo 2 and I still haven't gotten it to where I want it. I feel that it has to do with the weight distribution. I cannot get it to be as smooth as the 414M thus far. Also take VERY good care of your diffs and universals (grease). Because of the angle of the rear universals, they greatly affect exit steering if they are not smooth and well lubed.

Hope this helps.

hi everyone I'm a fellow tamiya"r"....i got an evo 2 and since the 414 is basically the same, i thought y'all could help.

I'm having trouble setting my car up for my local track....I tried the setup that comes with my car, but its way too loose.

I race on a short, 60X90ft ,Bumpy as heck, old ,rutted racetrack which is blown and sprayed.... do any of you have a good setup for the 414 that would work on that kind of a track?

i raced last weekend and had to run -6deg rearcamber with red springs on 40wt oil with -1deg frontcamber with white springs on 50wt oil to minimize the rear end screaching and snapping around. I use HPI 27R tires and soft inserts.(these seem to do the trick to stick) I've tried TAKEOFF 32R's but my car seems like its ice skating...even the TAMIYA type A's slide ALL over the place.

any help will be appreciated... would adding spacers to the front of the rear arm carrier help with the bumps? do i remove spacers from the front arm carrier? TOE in the rear with optional hubs? toe in the front?

Just got my TRF world replica kit a few minutes ago. The box itself looks sensational and the price is quite a killer. $500. Took a shot of the box. Take a glimpse.

How much do you think is a reasonable price, Usagi? (btw..aren't you the on from the RCzone board too?)

With all the crazy prices these days...I can't wait till Tamiya came out with 414M3 or any evolution of 414 after these ones *sigh*

In Hong kong TRF replica would cost around HK$3,600 and hardly you can find one now. I was told that reservations comes from everywhere in different countries and luckily my local dealer has three and now a goner. I will check what number I got. Btw, the price seems unreasonable but I think its worth having one.
