You don't use that. It's a outdated PT mount.

I don't have personal experience, but just letting you know that I read that those purdy clear pieces aren't as strong as the normal black plastic.

I believe thats the TA-05 limited edition parts. Correct me if im wrong but since this is a V.2 page, some of that clear blue parts will not fit on the V.2

I don't think any of those parts in particular would have a problem fitting. Bumper parts, body mounts & battery strap? I don't think those were changed on the V2.

Cookie monster beat me to it, but yeah, I say that's a transponder mount. It's not used in the V2...

Do you need to run a lower FDR? I'm running 4600Kv Castle in mine, have it geared with kit's Spur/Pinion (which is about 7.5 I think?) and the motor NEVER comes off hot... I think the little scoop below the motor also helps with the motor temp...

The ESC is a Mamba Max, which fits snug in the ESC mounting section, and the MM can take some heavy beating Wattage/Heat-wise. I've put that ESC through some torture...

My guess is 98T at the max, 96T to be safe, but Skittee is much more knowledgeable, I'm just a novice with this chassis...

I have personally installed the 96, 100 and 105 with ease and was wondering if it can go any higher. Am looking for a 108T to install.

Have fitted size 28 & 29 so far for my drift setting while on TC i have fitted 34-39. but on 100t spur you will be able to fit only 26 the lowest.

105? That's great info. You're talking about the 64 pitch size and not the metric 0.4 Tamiya size right?

Looking good! So does the V2 not come with a sway bar kit or do you guys just not run them in the GT class.
