I just ordered the aluminum diff halves and sway bars from Tamiya this morning. I also ordered a few sets of the idler gear to replace the damaged one I have and also some spares. Get the diff halves while available.

I've had my first run with my FF03 PRO and it was a plesure to drive it.
I've made some small adjustments about the setting and it made a big difference.
Only negative thing is the sloppy spur gear holder, after 30 minutes of driving my spur is totally wasted cause of it's being sloppy
It was a brand new FF03 102T spur gear
Overall the car performs great, great handling and well balanced in corners.
Even the speed at/in corners is amazing, i don't think there is a big difference between a FF03 and a 4WD at/in corners.
With a good set-up the difference will be minimum.
I also noticed that the car is (compared to a standard TA05) very light.
My car weights 1370gr with a heavy body (that also is being reinforced with alu tape) and a Lipo orion 3800 battery.

It sure is a great car and i could recomment it to everyone.

No center pulley, no belts, one less diff assembly, 1 less set of driveshafts, fewer quantity of bearing, smaller rear bulkhead.. All weight savings and less maintenance..

Bah...just build it. The stock ones are fine until you need to replace them, then use the good stuff Just remember to glue the diff rings with whatever you think works. I used a super microscopic thin coat of shoe goo applied with an exacto, then put the rings on and spun them to evenly distribute the glue, then built the diff with loose tension to put atleast some pressure on the rings until the glue dried. Finally adjustments were done in car.

Ok a quick question for those that have already fitted the golf bodyshell, how well do the marks in the bodyshell line up with the body posts ?

Got to run mine today, had to do almost no set up changes from kit settings, but I have noticed an excess of wheelspin/diff out when steering not straight.
Speed was good with a sealed can motor, 41mph.
