I'm trying to find that one out myself!!

Waigo is the distributer so they should have. Check out their website for address;

http://www.waigo.com.hk/index.html

Most of the other shops are in Mong Kok- Dundas st and Kwong Wah st.

A friend just bought a 414M2 Red box and got change from HK$2000. List price for 414M is $2400, For Commerative edition 414M2 it is HK$2600.

Shops to try will be Harmony Models, The shop next to Hobby Hobby (I do not know the English name!!). These are walking distance to each other in MK. Lowest price??? best to check yourself!!

anyone can also give comments.
well,...
sorrie for the late reply...

these 3 cars are all the top-end kits for tamiya...
414m and the m2,not much difference except the blue parts...anyway,i prefer the 414m...

as 4 the evo2,it's a beautiful car as well,...but given a choice such as yours,i would go 4 414m...

maybe got to see it to believe that.

anyway, i believe they have the skills to do so.....

maybe my skills not gd, so have to use a high end car to cover up
they may not win the worlds with a tl01 or tb01,but i'm sure they can easily beat any of us 'players' here...tat's how good they r...

having a top end car will not make a champion,oni top-end car in the hands n mind of a equally top-notch driver can win championships..

the ta04r is a pretty good kit also...
definitely worth considering...

it's cheaper than the 414m or m2 or evo2...

Hey guys cant you see the trend? Most of them are slowly shifting back to shaft drive. Take a look at Tamiya, ae and hpi. Shaft is really cool except the way it heats up.

Food for thought (and comment): As far as I know, the TRF drivers use 414Ms and not Evos.

Im sure Evos are also highly competitive like the TC3. But why do you think they keep it of the track?

Geetoo: Tnx for the track photo, I now remember that that was tha track which was under contruction the last time i was joining the futaba cup. I think the tamiya TCS this July will use the track, i'm still not sure if I can go this july, but my club will be competing there. Did you join TCS? what category?

the 2 cars are really gd as i know. the pri difference is shaft and belt driven only......
yes,...i prefer belt-driven cars...
the 414m compared to the 414m2,...i prefer silver colour,...
as 4 the evo2,i took into mind other considerations such as parts support...u see,the evo2 is a limited edition kit,so i do not know if the are spare parts specially made for it...i know tat the evo2 can use parts from the tamiya tg10,but wat abt some of the parts that can't be used...such as the carbon lower deck...well,these r jus some of my concerns...

so far,the oni shaft-driven car that has perform well recently is the team associated tc3...as 4 the manufacturers moving back to belt,i think...hmmm,...tamiya still has the trf414m n m2 as their top-end and kyosho has the kx-1,losi has the xxx-s,these r all belt-driven,not 2 mention t1 n mission also,...

for shaft-driven,i think we have team associated tc3 and also mugen r into shaft-driven kits...

nitro cars seems to enjoy the shaft-driven cars better,but for electric,i think belt is still the way 2 go...
