Spec sheet does say FRP, so I would hope it was included

Are they oil gear diffs front AND rear or just rear?

Both front and rear have oil-filled gear diffs. The rear I'm using the oil Tamiya included in the kit, the front I'm using 100k oil for a semi spool effect.

I would heavily suggest using this stuff for the front diff.

I used 100k because that's what I had on hand (I use it on my rc8.2e). It makes me wonder why anyone will use a spool diff when there are these super thick oil available

Yes, it does. But that doesn't clear CARBON fibre or GLASS fibre. The original is glass, the new one is carbon. The part in the Pro II manual is the glass part number.

Nice. What is the purpose of the black sleeves on the wiring?

Cheers,

They have no real purpose other than looks. The esc I'm using (hobbywing justock) has presoldered wires and the solder the factory use cannot be removed with a soldering iron. I decided that its easier for me to just put this black sleeve than drill out the old solder and solder black wires on.

I took the car for a quick drive outside. Although it's noiser than the ta06, the sound is actually nice (not screechy) and it seemed to get quieter as everything started to settle in.

Did they update the motor mount or is the exotek one still necessary to get the fdr down?

I'm sure this has been asked before but i'm new to this car and i see in the instructions, it has two gears. I wanted to know if there was a spool for this car?

Looks like Tamiya will be releasing their own motor mount soon.

Regarding the dampers:

Are they touring dampers with lower profile threaded section and shock cap? Or are they the M chassis damper bodies?
