How do you manage to fit 46mm universals in the FF03? I have mounted the differential the correct way, but on the right side it is just to tight to get it in. The left side is OK though.

Tamiya 416 servo mounts fits like a glove. Use only the straight one and not the "L" shaped one.

You have the diff nut on the wrong side of the diff,

The FF03 is starting to look like a car. Only need some fine adjustments and some electronics. The body is still at the paint shop, but I'll get it back within two weeks.

TB03 aluminum servo mounts. I think there were two packages...a left side and a right side. You can see them partially see them in the pics of my car a few page back.

RedBullfiXX, does that battery look familiar?
Hey rtype, I have a question for you. What susspension blocks did you use so that you could fit the 46 mm universals. I have an aluminum diff and the diff nut side binds into the end of the bone, and I am using 42mm half shafts. I checked to make sure the diff was installed properly and it is, the only thing that I can think of is that the 1xd set up is to narrow. What do you think and what did you use?
Thanks, any help will be appreciated.

I'm using a 1xd in the front/front and the split 1xd/1d in the front/rear. Also, I only used a half sponge on one side and nothing on the other. As for the diff nut binding, I had the same problem and fixed it by putting the diff nut/holder on the other side (maybe it's in the instructions but I didn't see it lol) In any event, gotta go get my pyro on.

Happy 4th everybody.

Totally agree with you. They are hard to come by.

However the other option is;

Its half the price of the originals and you get the "L" shaped one too

It's not in the instructions, but it is the solution when using 46's. They should put it in the manual.

I'm also using 1XD both front and 1XD/1A in the rear.

Right between the pictures of the semi built diff halves and the picture of the fully built diff where you put the diff screw in, it says 'turn the diff around'...

That's why it's a 'pro' kit...

@Old man,

Thx a lot for the info.
Those 416 servo posts look the same as TB03 ones, but i could be wrong.
