M = Medium Grip
S = Super Grip
They are also 26mm not the standard 24.4mm i.e. larger rollout

Some people find on carpet that the M grip provides better traction than the S grip.

Trying to order parts for the FF03, but it appears no one in America or Hong Kong has universal drive shafts for the FF03 even though they advertise them on their sites.
looks like the car is going in to retirement already
So much for promoting the car here in England
Floored by a shit diff set up

NiMo ... I believe that part of the problem may also have to do with the diff bolt and nut. They are only a 2mm bolt.

The TRF201 which has an almost identical diff uses a larger diameter bolt.

You could try this larger bolt and nut combination soon as 3 racing have an option part on their FF03 parts list which is coming soon

It is an 2.8mm bolt and winged nut. This needs to be combined with their larger inner diameter thrust bearing that they will also have shortly.

As I have said numerous times, this diff is very similar to the M05 diff which has had a lot of issues. I know one racer who used a bigger bolt and thrust and has had no problems

Here for your reference

There are also a lot of other good looking options coming to suit brushless motors in these cars

Yep, but only in one certain position, with the solder tabs facing towards the driveshafts.
