For the first time since I was a child and had a Tamiya Hotshot in the mid 1980's, I got myself a new Tamiya Enzo Ferrari and finally finished building it. Now, the 4WD option is nice but am I right into thinking that the car will run a tad bit faster and be less controllable if I took out the center driveshaft and gearbox on the frontend effictively making it a 2WD road car?
From an engineering standpoint, it seems to be alright but I don't know what the pros and cons are in doing this and am hoping to get some of your input on the matter.
What I want to achieve is less control on the car making it more fun to play with. I will not use this on the track and want it to run a little faster without having to buy a new motor and speed controller. I also find the car very noisy in spite of the amount of grease I used for all the parts. I want it to run quietly.
And as far as modifications go, are there paper gaskets I can get for these toys or do I have to make my own? This way, I can seal the differentials and use straight weight motor oil to quiet it down even more?
I apologize if these are all such unorthodox questions but please understand that I haven't had an R/C in 22 years. The last one I owned was the one I got for my 10th birthday.
