I'm really late to the party on this having only built my FF03 CR-Z kit a few weeks ago (been sat in my workshop for over a year gathering dust) as no one wanted to buy it. It's totally stock other than a 64dp spur and pinion and a set of Pit Shimizu wet tires...and it is probably my favourite car ever. So easy and forgiving to drive and not that slow either. I have to admit I am a little bit in love with it. Should I be ashamed?

The kit does come with Tamiya hex screws, carbon graphite chassis, upper deck, rear shock tower and front motor brace... other than aluminium ballnuts and steering racks, all plastic... but I changed all those plastic parts with graphite except front bumper and bodypost... and use TRF aeration shocks...
The red heatsink? From 3Racing...
