Very nice review how free is the drivetrain when fully assembled?

Awesome! If it's not too much trouble, can you weigh the car as it sits in that picture? Have you had a chance to put tires on it and give it a spin?

Thanks!

Servo mount for front of battery, spacers on the floating servo mount, and cap screws on center bulkhead work as battery stoppers.

A picture of the rear join between centre shaft and rear g'box input would have been interesting.

What's the weight of the car as it sits?

I was thinking more fore and aft. Has tape, but nothing rigid I could see.

There's a hole near the front slot to attach a servo mount and screw. I don't believe there is hole near the rear slot.

Nice write up.

Did you mix the bars up in your description, (1.2 front/1.4 rear)?

Roll bars are obviously 1.2 rear, 1.4 front....now corrected. Thanks for letting me know.

Weight as it is now in the picture: 545g.

Will take a closeup picture of the rear input shaft / center shaft joint later.

You can see this fairly well on this picture of the rear input shaft and center shaft.

Are the center shaft and rear gearbox input shaft aligned well with no binding? This was a problem with the original TB04 PRO and TB04 base kits, which forced a revision in assembly instructions. Hopefully everything is aligned perfectly on this high-level kit.

The problem with the tb04 was the lower chassis, which warped when it cooled. It wasn't just the driveline, the cars had tweek and issues with not being straight in the areas around the transmissions.

I'm sure a carbon and billet aluminum car is going to be straight.
