Looks like he solders in his batteries and plugs in his motor (?).

He's using the newly designed orion v2 endbell which uses mini corrally style plugs. It helps to stop the wires from coming unsoldered in extreme heat.

They are just additional holders/mounts.

that is stopper you can get it from nitro throtle linkage. i basically just like the set screw on the stabilizer holder but it if you using stopper you can adjust the play of the stabilizer.

Yes, but you'd have to replace a majority of the parts, so you might as well buy the Hara kit. Unless you don't care about color and just want the newer parts.

so which are the parts that are most useful that we should get from the hara edition to add to the ordinary version?
cheers

I went through a similar pain getting the suitable parts. Here's a list of the more confusing bits!

But really, for the cost it's not really worth it. Especially if you're planning on buying a bunch of parts for racing.

Needed parts:

Hara alu dogbones 61338 x 4
Alu rear diff 61332 (includes plastic blades)
Narrow diff pulley 61050 (replaces old pulley+ suits new alu diff)
Hara one-way holder 61323 (purple!+new drilling pattern)
Narrow one-way pulley 61051 (new drilling - works with new or old one-way holders. But old style pulleys are not compatible with the new hara holder)
New edition one-way cups 70713(to work with new hara dogbones)

you'll also need new bulkheads(re-enforced), new shock towers(thicker), new shocks.

The main advantage is the new alu diff (smoother/lasts longer)and the improved cvd's(stronger+lighter than HD).. but in order to use them there are lots of compatibility issues so it's not cheap.

Not sure if anyone has answered this, but I was able to look over Andy's car the Tuesday he came back to the UK - the fan is Shoe Goo'd to a small bent piece of clear Lexan that is in turn Shoe Goo'd to the chassis.
