how long ago was that?.... everyone that I've talked to says..lately they are not replying or taking any overseas orders. I confirmed an order with them in Dec...and never replied back about payment etc... so I took my business elswhere...
I'll stick with a more reliable source like RainbowTen, RcModel, Control Centre, and Hobby Mania.

what their putting out is stupid. And the support is not their we as racers know more than Tamiya USA does. Hey like I said, I love Tamiya but I am not going to be a fool again and buy into the limited EVO crap. The only way I will buy tamiya again is that the price comes down and the support get's better. If your a collector great but if your a racer you better have Deep Pockets.
Its funny, i'm in the same boat as you....I just bought the 414M2 for like 220....i remember it being significantly higher about a year and a half ago. I just wait until my LHS tries to "Blow" them out, and they drop the price to something more acceptable to my wallet. Besides, the 414M2 is still very competitive....

If you look closer you'll see that the entire drivetrain is under an angle, sort of like Schumacher did with one of their cars a few years back.

Default diff

looking at R10, there seems to be parts for:
51054 TRF415 FRONT ONE WAY PULLEY 35T and 51055 TRF415 BALL DIFF PULLEY 35T

If the ball diff pulley is for front and/or back I don't know.....

There's also 51058 TRF415 DIFF JOINT but again as to whether these are front or back I don't know.

Looking at previous TRF cars, I think I am correct in saying a front diff has always been available. Based on this, I would be confident in predicting that a front diff will be available for the 415.

That would be cool then If its available as for Tech racing making one they dont so that is why I asked if the 415 will have it as a option so I could snag one up for my Tech car.

Thank you for the info
