Ye I think it's only the tyres. I'll post up more info after work. I have different wheels and tyres on it in that pic.

Sorry chaps, no time for good pics, just this one. That is the stock TA03F Drift wheel, with special compound tyres (damn hard). The inside half is meant to be harder than the outside.

I made my own bumper from 2 pieces of dense foam. I cut away the two knobs on the stock plastic bumper and screw it down with the aluminium bumper attachments off some other aftermarket bumper. Works very well and is very cheap. I have bumpers to suit each body I use, and they cost a couple of dollars all up!

thanks for the pic. that bumper setup is great, really shows me how i should do it. have you ever had any problems with rocks in your belt? i see that the belt is placed pretty high, so that probably helps with reducing getting rocks up in there, but im still afraid of getting things jammed in there and getting the belt/gears all chewed up.

I have never had a problem with rocks damaging the belt. It does have the upgrade (aramid?) belt on it which is meant to be stronger and thinner. Something did get stuck on one of the gears once but did no damage. Only made the car jolt whenever the belt came into contact with that part of the gear.

Don't forget that the bumper is upside down in that pic, the lower portion had to be cut that way to clear the engine case, hehe. I think the bumper supports came from a Team Atlas aftermarket bumper I had bought years ago.

alright good to know. makes me feel alot better. my biggest concerns with the car are the lack of bumper and the beltness of it, but seeing how you were able to get one on relatively easy and have had no major belt problems, im alot less scared of breaking the car.
hey phillip lam, for future reference, what parts do you have and where abouts are you located?

I'm considering selling the dual motor/battery TA03 as a roller(electronics not included unless you want a hardly used Mamba Max 5700) along with a lot of hop ups and spare parts. PM me if you're interested and I can give you more details.
