This is my carpet setup.
Tamiya FF03

The only changes I've made since were to go to 600 oil in the front, removed the rear sway bar, and added the red sway bar to the front.

Hi guys,

Would like to check if 13.5 brushless motor will be too much for FF03?? I will be running asphalt outdoor...

Currently looking for new set of motor for this chassis..

That would depend on the size of the track and the type of layout it is. If it's large, fast and flowing lay out I would say your ok. If it's small and technical then I think it would be to much motor.

The beauty of the FWD chassis is that it can only handle so much power, to much and any benefit is lost in wheel spin.

Here in Australia we are using the Hobbywing Justock ESC with a 13.5 motor (non timed ESC and motor). It has the right amount of speed.

This ESC system is also being used in the FWD class at the TITC event in Thailand (already has 40 entries for the class)

I'm using Xerun 60A with 13.5T Team Powers. Low boost and low gearing, just enough to reach top speed on straight. 20T pinion with stock spur in fact.
Very happy with this setup. Cheap and reliable, cost me less than 120 USD incl. shipping.

Redundant question. Besides the TRF shocks what is the difference other than the blue bits between both the pro and non pro version? Does the non pro come with bearings?

Merry Christmas.

The pro includes the 5mm low friction ball links and includes bearings for everything but the rockers and the steering. There is no body, motor or tires and inserts with the pro.

The Pro doesn't include bearings for the suspension rockers either.

So it's safe to say the non pro is the better value. I have a set of TRF shocks that I can just throw on. Most if not all shops online are out of stock on FWD bodies

If weight&TRF dampers isn't an issue then the non pro is the better version.
This cause of the motor, body and perhaps the ESC (this isn't bad at all).
Not sure if those tires are the standard medium narrow ones or the A-type tires.

No esc included in the non pro and the body really isn't the trickest thing on the planet, no wing and can't add a wing under TCS rules.
These things like wings.

So you get to buy shocks, better body and tires (good ones) anyway.

Best deal?

Your choice.

Default on top of the TRF shocks...

If you don't care about the blue ball studs and wheel nuts (), consider the upgraded servo saver, motor plate and nice turnbuckle parts
