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.

I've always found Modelfixings to be a good source for small quantities of unusual bearings and hardware.

You do not need Tamiya one. For the main pulley this is 840 flanged [MF84] (TRF419X /WS) and 850 flanged [MF85] for TRF419XR. Avid, Acer have them. Shipment is reasonably fast.

Does anyone know if there is a low friction set of belts for the 419x that are TCS legal?

The only low friction belts, i know, are from TOP RC.

Front 513mm - 171t:

TOP PO-PDT014


Rear 183mm - 61t:

TOP PO-PDT015


Same white belt material like the TA07R one. TCS legal? Don't think so...
