The tires that came with the kit, are they tamiya type As or Sorex tires?

no tires come with the kit... just standard 0 offset tamiya dish rims.

Thanks for the info.

EEyan asked me thru e-mail if I wanted to represent TAOB Racing here in Scottsdale, AZ but not too many of the racers here use Japanese TCs. Mostly Losi and AE. Just me (TB EVOII modified and 414M SSG) and another guy who uses the new Yok SD. Waiting to get my my 415 from SpeedTech. Should be a blast putting it together. (Oh by the way did I mention I'm FLIP?)

Hey JR... nice to see you post here... I'm also waiting for Speedtech to get their shipment and off to the "building" room I go... hopefully soon... (btw, TAOB is not all Japanese equipped...)

Is there any advantage to using the 1° options over the standard if you still get 2.5° toe in??

Thanks for pointing that out to me, EEyan. Not too many people like Tamiya TCs here due to the lack of LHS support. It's only when the 414M won the IFMAR last year they started to look at Tamiya differently. Oh well, to each his own liking which vehicle to use.

Well I'm proud to say I was Driving TRF cars well before Surikarn won the Worlds....
Had the 414M before that time too....
I'm a tamiya man through and through....

Well it was actually a lightweight 414M with blue parts. It had the high standards of the original 414M with the look of the 414M2....

It's more of a tuning option. If you use the 1° hubs, you'll have to increase the toe using the blocks so that means you'll have more toe in on the inboard side. If you use the 2° hubs you'll have less toe in on the inboard side. It's a small change but it does affect the way your car feels, experiment with it and see what happens as I am not confident enough with my tests to explain exactly what happens when you switch.
