I want that motor mount to but for $32.00 that is outrageous. I may just suttle for the motor heatsink. Im not going to run fast motors only the stock motor. Since this is a vintage rc car im going to take it easy when driving and drive it to scale.

If I have the money, I'd put in a set of Novak XBR 8.5 in it...

I might use Sidewinder 5700kv coming from AutoXMan...

Dust shield for the chassis!

I was wondering if it would fit the TB-02.. the answer is no... [:'(]

nice! So do these have a bit more shock travel than a regular on-road car or no?

I don't know if it does or not, but I think it has slightly more ground clearance! You take a look at the shocks on this thing, it looks like it uses longer connector at the end, but I don't think the shock itself is any longer.

But in regular touring car, you don't really compress the shocks all the way anyway even when you push the car down. So I'd guess that it also has slightly more travel.

The center driveshaft is made of steel -> HEAVY.. [&:]

Compare to TB-02, which comes w/ lightweight aluminum unit, no hop-up required!

Did I say heavy?! Check out those metal gears... [X(]

TB-02 uses plastic gears...

Tamiya plastic gears are super tough anyway.. I'd definitely prefer the TB-02 setup here.. especially gears are rotational weight..
