blade- dont get too set on the configuration yet, as you may want to slide the battery forward for balance. you may want to look into the RSector top deck, no more taking out the posts

1 also have the heavyweight pivot post in the rear and the esc is quite heavy...

also think i might get the 3racing t bars as they are half the pice of the tamiya's

btw...the r sector conversion looks awesome

Use acetone and you can get the tire off nicely.

Acetone will melt the Tamiya rims for rubber tires but works great for the Tamiya rims for foam tires (which are the rims for the Pit Shimizu tires fortunately.)
I use acetone for both the 104 and 103 foam tire rims.
I've killed Tamiya rubber tire rims for F1s, Touring Cars and Minis.
Just sayin, been there wrecked that.

I'm running a 2.7 at the moment with heaps of room temperature wise to drop down further. I think a 2.4-2.7 would be a good

These are the only other bodies I know of; heard they were thin so be careful.
