Alloy diff and hubs are included in the kit.

Finally picked up mine at Speedtech yesterday while I was down here. Soo stoked to get it rolling! I may be one if the first ones in the nw with one of these. I'm torn about running that gorgeous toms body or saving it.....

You can save it (for TCS racing ) and replace it with a much lighter body for under $20. They're a bit wider too.

Brings back a lot of good memories seeing my Toms sitting on my desk
I just bought a 10.5 1 Cell SP motor, what size pinion would I need using the kit spur? Or do I need to change the Spur aswell, I'm running in an open carpark and occasionally at a track with a 20 meter straight.

thanks

Edit: thanks RedBullFiXX apprecaite the reply.

Gratz on the New RM

Stock roll out is about 37mm with new kit tires. 63x14 gear.
I would try it with kit gearing at your track.

At our 90x45' carpet track with a 10.5 boosted 48 roll is close. i.e. 63x18 gear
This is with my 12R5, as I only run the RM in stock 17.5 so far.

I'm not sure what the largest pinion that will fit is, as I do not run Tamiya gears ?
If you do not not have boost options, you may want to turn up the timing to see if that will give the speed you are looking for in the car park, and or the track.

Have fun, that is a lot of power for this chassis on such a small track though

My RM01 body measures + - 165mm
and the CRC "Black Art" measures + - 175mm.

ROAR max width is 172mm wide tire to tire. (correct me if I'm wrong)
The Tamiya is 165 rear and 160 front.
I widened the rear when I put the new "race" body on and it freed up the rear too much, car settled down nicely returning to the stock width, did not try widening front and rear together however.

This car looks cool, and fairly affordable. Can I put a Savox 1251 in there?
