the battery compartment and if we are going to use those hard casing lipo battery and the cables are those with banana plugs, are we still able to use it?

2nd thing is the battery cover, required 4 screws to open up? and do we have to open and close whenever need to access to the batt? doing that may cause the screw hold become loose.

please advice.
Banana plugs can be used but the center balance plug is blocked.

The bottom plate screws into nuts and not the plastic chassis so will not loosen the screw holes.

I'm wondering the same thing. What do you need to do in order to run a front shock tower? Car looks good.

Check the manual on the Tamiya web site. It looks like the kit comes with parts for a conventional front shock tower setup as well as parts for the IFS setup.

Your right. It has a separate step for the vertical front shock setup. I can't wait to get this thing. I love my 05 and loved my Losi type R. If I can find a sweet spot between the two I will be a happy man.... for under $300!!

From a couple pages back. PDF of the manual for the Pro is linked to right off of that page. I can't make it any easier since they won't allow direct linking to the manual.

I've pre ordered mine and anxiously waiting...
This will be my 2nd sedan I've ever owned, I currently have a Cyclone TC
Would this car be better left alone with front and rear gear diff or with a front spool ? I assume I can also just add really thick lube in the front diff and have a similar effect as a spool ? Am I correct to think this ? Thanks for any advise..

well, the magazine test used 100k. I might start with 30k...
The kit standard 900 F/R is too light for the front imo.

The way I understand it, overall demand in Canada is much smaller than US, so they get theirs by air freight while our allotment languishes on the slow boat.
