I made my TRF419 a single belt from a TA07.

possible
I'm not sure, if the RM01 pitch damper #54342 will fit between weight and upper deck, but if yes, then it would be an alternative.

I really doubt it would have any affect on handling.

Default Pre cut bodies

Does anyone know if any other cars run the same body mounting?
With all the pre cut bodies out right now I would like to try one but have never seen a Tamiya listed so I was hoping maybe one of the other cars would fit

The infinity IF14 shell fits on the TRF419X (should fit on a std 419 if you flip the rear body posts. Pics in the link

I feel like a total noob, but how the hell do you get bearings out of the bearing holders?

Two answers:
Precut body T4 2017/2018 fits TRF419x. I use Bitty M410.
I remove bearings from hubs using hook tool. This one used in nitro to set or remove exhaust springs.

I have that tool and I attempted to use it. I basically ripped apart my fingers as I tried to pry the freaking bearings out.

Ok this is how i got the bearings out. I used some tweezers to get inbetween the plastic and the bearing just enough to create space for a flat head screw driver. Then I put in a flat head and twisted it to make thebearing separate from the plastic significantly more.

I put end of the hook on the line between bearing and plastic. Put a little pressure then move along a line. 2-3 time a bit stronger and bearing pop up. True - you have to watch your fingers as hook may slip and attack your thumb

Are your referring to the diff bearings? Try flipping them around on a spool/diff and pull on the holder to release the bearing from it.
