I found this in another forum. This fellow bought the brushed version and put in his own electronics. Plenty of room.

Very smart what he did!

I like the wheels and tires!

He seems to be any organized and neat guy with the way his bench is.

It looks ok but I'd much rather they stuck to the old nomenclature and the 'Sport' moniker was used for a budget version of the pro model.

I would agree. The feature I like the most is the sealed drivetrain.

Does anyone own this kit? Please share with us your thoughts and pics...

Ha, I'm guessing you found those pics on RCcrawler. That is actually my car, I started that thread over there.

Glad you like it though, and I'm hopeing Exotek does come out with a few options for this car

Why yes indeed! I like what you did to your car. I stumbled upon your post when I googled the RS4 Sport 3. You see I was searching for a chassis that has a sealed drivetrain for the track conditions here. Unprepared and full of small bits of sand. Belt drive was not really my choice.

Please tell us more about your chassis. How's the weight and smoothness of the drivetrain?

Your work area is neat as well! Very nice.

Hi.

I've seen your amazing videos!

Well if you click on the link above, you'll see the car's features. They appeal to me.

Drivetrain is what I really liked of all. Metal gears!

I'm guessing that kit will fit my TCX arms and C-hubs.

They do list a "high speed gear set" as an option in the manual, but the picture shows some different looking spurs. I'm actually kind of confused what they mean by it. It only lists one part number. Perhaps a typo, or wrong picture was used. I'll take a picture of it when I get home tonight.

Please do.

Here are a couple pics from the manual. It definitely says high speed gear set, but it also looks like a spur/pinion combo. Seems odd that they would bundle those two together not knowing what motor/esc/battery you have. They even list another spur right next to it as a 66T, stock is 75T.

I really don't know what they mean by it, unless it's a spur/pinion that is specific to their Flux version. Who knows.




This is the weight as it sits with wheels/tires, body, electronics, everything. I didn't get a chance to weigh it with all the stock electronics. So this is with a Tekin RS, a Tekin redline motor, a savox servo, and a 5000mah 2s lipo.

Slightly heavy, you could probably get it lighter if you removed the sealed receiver box. Might be a good VTA starter car though.
