On a small track it is great. Acceleration is phenomenal. Jimmy Wright i believe, got the 3rd fastest lap at the King Of Cal race and on a big track(160x80) Lightfoot got 2nd with it at Hobbytown Corona. It is definitely a capable car and with a few more things to try out, i don't see why this car could not be a star. Just like anything, there is such a thing as over gearing, but once the sweet spot is found, i don't see why it can't be a contender.

I am finding out the Ballistic motors are near impossible to fit. My Duo doesn't want to fit without the 3mm motor spacer or a lot of dremeling the adjacent brace. Are there any motors that just fit?

I also stripped two of the screws on the front diff. I'm sure the thing will separate now under load. When will these parts be available stateside? I have a diff to run in the meantime.

The Speedpassion V3.0 motor fits just fine. Not sure on others.
As far as diff screws, use the Tamiya allen wrench..it is a perfect fit and doesn't strip the screw.

Hobbywing motors fit perfectly (see my previous picture) with no adjustment needed.

Hope it helps

i had to dremel away 1.5mm of material to fit my hobbywing motor (v3)

BUT! it fits perfectly if you lay down the solder tabs a little (leaning them forward instead of straight up)

LRP X12 motors fit fine.

Would suggest replacing the 2.5mm E Clips on the Pulley assembly to 2mm Clips.

He said its a DIY job, nicely done too.

Tamiya mounts can get confusing, a guy on here called TryHard (Ed) has posted some very good stuff on his website - here is a link to the suspension block section:

Hope it works!

You use the split suspension blocks from the TA05 v2 and i think you're right in that the 415 ones are used as well.

To be sure though check out the options section and parts numbers at the foot of page 21 in the manual.

Goodluck
