Those should be JIS screws, so a matching set of drivers is needed. Or grinding needs to.be done on Philip driver to makd it work with these screws. Most people just replace them with hex screws. Actually, with Tamiya's tool set, JIS screws arent that bad to use. It is quirky thing alongside Tamiya' s refusal of admitting lipo exists and use of mertic modulegeat instead of standard module for gears.

You wouldn't happen to be from the USA by any chance? I'll never understand why they insist on being pretty much the only country in the world (well, there's Liberia and Myanmar too) that refuses to use the much more practical metric system.

But that's because the TCS is the North American series and they haven't gone with an actual Tamiya motor. Nor do they run actual Tamiya tyres in mini class.

JIS is hardly quirky. "Japanese Industrial Standard". But their insistence on buiding their cars to suit their own range of LiFe batteries is very frustrating. I've just been tearing my hair out trying to get a Lunchbox Mini to run when you don't have cost-effective access to Tamiya's own electronics and batteries.

I hated that TA05 M-FOUR was built with Tamiya LiFe battery in mind.

A lipo fits in it just fine even the square(assuming from the very flat part of the battery compartment) ones it was shown in the video

I was just looking at the pictures. Id seen a early post about Tamiya and Lipo. I watched a little of the video. Not much for reading sub titles in videos

Uhmm, how can we just breeze over the fact that the lower bulkheads are molded into the chassis?!? Similar to the M07

i wonder what they learned..

I would modify the mini Lunchbox to work with a 2S Super Shorty battery.

And upper bulkhead is molded into top plate.. Tamiya did lot of cost cutting on this chassis.
