Very nice build Rod.
Curios though, why not run the battery the other way to have shorter wires ?

For flexibility with different +/- terminals orientations. I'll cut them eventually.

good point!

Made me think about my 4WD '65 GT350 and '68 Camaro USVTA cars!

Although in RR form this chassis would make the perfect 911...

Not actually, cos I have seen one, and they kept the motor in the same place (mid mounted) although changed it to another make.
Porsche do make a 4wd 911, but the motor is still over the rear axle.

As redbones suggested, if you didn't flip the diff during assembly (an easy mistake, as the "twisted arrow" is a little subtle) the inner screw assembly will be really wide, affecting the driveshaft fit. Come to think of it, this may be the problem for the binding dogbone guy above.
Thanks guys i go check .....
I also installed a 44mm universal with TB03 wheel axl.. it solved my problem.

That would be awesome! Tamiya should make one with slightly wider rear tires++

the manual says to use 1/2 of the pink foam inside the drive cups. I install 1/2 on the side it said but the dog bone moves. Is this how its suppose to be?
