I thought Kentech was joking but it's true, there is a TA-06 coming in May. So, this gearbox will fit the FF-03 and it comes with a gear diff. If it's true I'm will be waiting anxiously but not to buy the kit but for the FF-03 hop-up which will probably be available soon, I hope!

I use the plastic outdrives, shoo-goo doesn't seem to stick very well on the drives. Any tips?

Thanks.

They melted when I took it apart, will get some aluminum ones instead. Do they make disks with notches that fit the aluminum drives?

I do not believe that Tamiya make D-style diff rings which is a problem if you hope to be TCS legal. The diff out drives are made to accept them so you would think they are available.

the ff03 looks like a fun car, very tempted to buy one
