You can also use finger nail clippers on the belt.

OFF TOPIC NEWBIE QUESTION

I think most of you guys have driven a TRF 414m, so I just wanted to find out if I can use the 414m lower deck for my TA04 TRF? If yes, do i need to modify something?

Posted here coz I couldn't find the TA04 topic. Thanks in advance.

badboy, the holes are way different on the 414 compared with the 04. Tamiya does have a carbon fiber saddle pack lower deck for the 04 and it makes it look very similar to a 414 but I do not have the part number on me. Be careful not to confuse it with the corbon fiber "stick pack" lower deck for the 04

Why are you guys cutting every other tooth? No faith that Tamiya did their homework on the belts and belt tensioners and reshaped pulley/belt teeth? You know the belt tensioner cam works both ways...you can also go looser lol

The 04 have alot different lower deck from the 414m2.
the 414m2 bulkhead mount have no holes for the 04's bulkheads.

i sugguest you take the whole 414m2.

Rod did you run at TA yesyerday or did you run the SE3?

I gave mine a shakedown in the neighborhood and the car felt real good, hopfully I'll be running next weekend.

Less teeth better effiency and more attractive to your sister. Works on a Losi most work on a Tamiya

Here are samples of the 04 saddle conversion and 414 chassis. I did an article for an R/C magazine a while back comparing the 2 chassis. Handling wise, we found both are almost similar, but have their own strength and weaknesses. But both are capable cars at the highest level... but then again, we have the 415 which should provide even higher performance...

By the way, the 04 saddle chassis was discontinued last year. Tamiya USA might have some floating around though. So if you ever get the chance to see these, grab them before they are gone forever! Mine's all locked up in a glass cabinet somewhere in cali...

Dan, I ran the EvoS yesterday and couldn't quite get it to handle right with a mod. I killed a diff and after rebuilding it, the car felt better. I played around with cutting down the mazda 6 wing and I found out that it lost a lot of stability. But in the end, the car was just not right because of the experiment, wish there was an "undo" for scissors.

Fred tried an off shoot of Satoshi's cold weather setup and it was a lot better but in the end, I think I won two throwdowns and Beale won the other...both with Evo3's. Next week, I'll have the 415 running but for now, I gotta go to the lhs to get some paint and stuff. ttyl
