2 - Diff pulleys... Well I dont have any TA05 bits, but I do have an 04 diff and the centre pulley looks near as dammit identical to it

3 - All the carbon is 2mm

4 - I've uploaded a better copy of the manual here I'll leave it here for a few days then take it down.

You're assuming that you actually NEED hop-ups in the first place though....

I reckon all you need (apart from what you already have) is shocks/springs. Everything else is pretty much a waste of money for no performance gain.

The M03M Swift 1600 has all the latest molded parts in the kit (stronger caster blocks, steering spindles and 2 deg toe in rear hubs).

After being asked the 'Which car is better?" question about a thousand times, we decided to make a specific page on our site for the answer...

http://www.rc-mini.net/MiniWeb1/Which_Is_Better.html

Job done!

Still, there are some hop ups that don't increase performance but are more durable in the long run and may hold up better in a race.

*Aluminum turnbuckle shafts (kit ones bend on first crash)
*Servo saver ( over time kit ones lose their holding power and you get wayward directional pulling)
*Aluminum wheel hubs ( kit ones always break apart after constant tires changes)
*Heat sink ( its minimal heat dispersing but great as washer for the bolt head)
*Shims ( it reduces slop in your wheels)
*Wheel spacers ( i use it on the rear only for a little more stability)

I somewhat agree. As I recommend to the newcomers at our track, Bearings (a must), Shocks (a must) Springs (a must) Alum knuckle on the old susp (will become a must) (Swift susp plenty stout) Toe in rear uprights (a must for old susp not needed for new susp) From there hop up to your budget but nothing else is really a must. Anything you can do to reduce weight will help, with many areas of the car.
