Default M-03M

Hi...I am interested in purchasing the tamiya M-03M. I have done all relevant research and even accessed the rc.mini.net website(thanks to rctech). Most if not all suggest the M03M to any other chasis apart from its successor the M03R. My first question is I really love to get the mini rover body on this chasis - length wise (i think not)....can someone who has done this advise...please.
2nd. Is the ball diff better than gear diffs? - my choice is TA03.
3rd. The supplied speed control tamiya 101 - will this run on 27 turns and 23 turn motors...(lots of speculation...please help)

The Rover body will fit on the M03M just fine if you remove the chassis spacer- that makes it a short car. SAme with the M03R- it comes with spacers to make it an M or an L (BMW Cooper).

Gear diff is fine for most applications, but if you have the money go for the ball diff.

The TEU speed control is pretty basic- it will work fine with silver cans and some stock motors but- I'd suggest upgrading to a tougher ESC, even an inexpensive one. Or a used one (plenty of Novak Cyclones available on the for sale thread, etc.)
I've never lost.
I've just been a little bit behind when time ran out...

The Tamiya speed control is fine with 27t stocks. It may be basic, but I've had no problem running a Monster 27t with mine, and that motor is plenty quick enough for a mini....
