No the kit inserts are cheapy foams, the Tamiya pieces are molded

Default Mission frame

Thanks King-G

Yes I have machined a gear adapter; it’s a very tight fit to get the spur gear on this side and there is no way to do it with the kit pieces unless you can drill the shaft and machine the stock spur gear… and some spacers (e-mail me for instructions if you want to try). The only geometry change is the batteries, which are now straight along the chassis (since the spur gear in no longer in the way). Overall the chassis is about 10mm narrower than the stock one. The next two chassis will get a new battery strap that will allow the batteries to be move forward about 9mm or so by turning the strap 180 degrees around.

I made the motor spacers only as a prototype to check the feasibility, as it turned out they worked very well.

impactplayr your pic request is gone to my webmaster...
if he can stop tinkering on his Mission long enough to post them LOL

Post Keyence ESCs

I am pretty sure the Keyence Zero V Extreme and the Zero V Extreme 2002 are the same thing. The only thing that I noticed that was different was that the 2002 model has a better on/off switch on it. I dont think there is any difference between the two except that the 2002 is just the new 2002 model. I have them both and they dont differ in any way except that the 2002 has a different design on the face plate but I took that off and put the heat sink on anyways so they both look the same now. I will check them both again to see if there is any different settings in them. I have replaced the wires on both of mine and they have been working for a long time now with no problems. I'll keep you posted if I find anything else different between the two.

Im not certain but i think the 2002 model has holes in the solder pads to solder the wires straight up like the quantum. Other than that and the faceplate i think there the same.

Team AE.....the diff pulleys retail for 12.99 each......and what bigger diff balls are you refering to? The diff balls that were in the Axis series cars were bigger but the Mission uses the standard 3/32 diff balls.
