I forgot, yes the C hubs, rear hubs and knuckle arms fit, I used to have that problem, but since I replaced them with the Aluminum ones from SQUARE RC, no more problems!!! www.rc-square.com
the ons for the TBevo3, 415, 04 fit your 414 since its uses the same arms, except for the 415MS and if you use the conversion kit.

Your still lucky! When I was 14, I was drooling seeing kids my age with toys my parents could not afford! I started with a TL01 a few years back! Consider your self lucky you have an RC. Don't rush on getting a new kit, at our local track w got spanked by a guy with a TL01, and in the last asian Tamiya Cup qualifiers, a lot got beat by a TT01!!

For the meantime, drool on thse parts for your ride!! Scroll down! Just don't spend anymore on your kit, just save save save!!!

yeah, I am quite lucky, Im trying to go out and earn the money myself by getting a paper round, if I can find one. I already have a fair few hop-ups on and the essential ones anyway. Ive bought new gears to make it have a bit more top end to now and added ball bearings aswell.

Do you know any sites that actually do have most of the replacement parts, I heard if you break the chassis, shock towers or bulkheads that youre out of luck as their impossible to find.

The best place (and possibly the cheapest) is on ebay...

Actually, on a 414 - the bulk head is aluminum, so its gonna be rather difficult to break is...

The chassis and shock towers are also carbon fiber - again, rather difficult to break...Even for a newbie

As far as parts, anyplace (tower hobbies) that stock TA04 parts will carry most of the breakable parts...they are all interchangable...The 414 came with hardened suspension arms, which are friggin impossible to break (I've broken 1 in the last 5 years)...the steeriing knuckles are the same on both cars, the hub carriers...

KK, I know walawala store do the upper framer but nowhere do they do the stock carbon fibre chassis and fdront shock tower, hopefully all the other parts will be TA04 parts or the majoity of weak parts

if you break a carbon fiber chassis, then you got some major issues...I ran the 414 for about 6-12 months, and never broke a thing on it...and that included some spectacular crashes on a high speed banked turn on a oval/road course

Tamiya' reputation is very good in the breaking department...it will take some serious abuse or freak accident to break something on that car...

I wouldn't worry about carrying a "spare" chassis - its should take a beating before even warping
