Having no roof also meant this little 'speedster' of Aarons had less drag and it got around just that little bit quicker. Very novel, and it was a hit with all the guys

TFG

I was being a smart arse on the "Who won" comment. Looks fun driving on a velodrome.

Tell Tim I'm disappointed he didn't break 100km/h. We go forward not backwards.

Nice looking Speedster but the guy's driving on the wrong side.

You can't.

Aaron cut the roof off a normal LWB Mini Cooper and glued in an interior off something else (he doesnt know what it was from).

Need some advice on choosing a gear diff for my M05.

Not sure if I should go with the cheaper 3Racing gear diff, or the Spice/Team ABR diff. Are there any differences?

I'm coming from the stock diff.

Also needing a body, are any brand bodies more durable then others? I've put a decent crack in my tamiya shell

I cant say to much for witch body's might be more durable, one thing I do with the body for my VTA car is use "shoe gue" in the front end after painting. Granted it dose add weight, but it dose help it last a lot longer.

Havent used the ABR/Spice unit, but the 3 racing diffs are based on the sakura tc diff. More than up to the task.
My main piece of advice is to stock up on the plastic blade clips, they are a consumable item and relatively cheap and easy to change. Check after each run and you're good to go !!

Shoe Goo works great, especially if you lay down a strip of fiberglass drywall tape first and sort of laminate it in place. Makes your car darn near indestructible.
