Well i cant see any specefic between the ft things..but i have not looked so close..
So i have 12 packs with this car and there is nothing like it...it is the best, but other hand i did find a descent setup .
It handles like a dream in the air, it take bumps sick good..
sadly i built the rear diff not so good, so it broke, but i fixed it and it is rock solid...
Cant see any reason for the CF chassi but Pimping ya car...the chassi is real stiff, and it works real good..
after 10 min of hard motor is app 80 celsius, esc app 55...
Broken outdrive..fixed now..i love the gear ones..

Fixing the rear diff..

AE RC18B2...the new era?

Going from 20 rear to 15..

Hi J, i have cut them only 2-2.5mm from rear end of can..and just taken of the protection yellow,orange and blu silicon"cable..so only the cables are out, as short solder tabs..so i can se the collor, still "inside" the holes where the cables are in..

not sure if it can be seen here?

well done thomas. I did that same thing to mine a long time ago, as it's basically "straight-wiring" the motor ... and so as to eliminate the extra 9 connections of the motor bullet plugs that have a propensity for failure, and poor connections which hinder operation and performance

6 packs today...the tires where SICK grippy...need to cut them...

Tapered pistons, i changed back, cus i used wrong oil, and they were not identical drilled as the other i use...But there is not much to say, this car, is a mean one, it is fast and it takes most of the bad bumps on our big track...
