You can use the babelfish translator from altavista.com and paste text snippets in it (those "??????????????") to have it translated. Works pretty well for me.

As far as I understand those special packages in their shop are combos. For the TA05MS 42103 is just the kit as described from Tamiya.com (no body, tires, motor etc.).

42103s2 for example is the kit from Tamiya with the titanium screw set from champ. Thats what babelfish says when you paste the short description in it.

42103s3 seems to be a combo with titanium and blue aluminium screw kit.

42103s1 seems to be with the kit plus a Tamiya body (51257), a motor (GT 25T 53779), a set of 2 pinions (53691), low friction drive belt 53706, B3 tires, inserts 53582, a one way (53953, not sure about this cause it is listed as a one way for the DF03 chassis) and a battery pack 3700HV. To figure out the part numbers just replace the "OP" (option parts) before the 3 numbers with "53" to get a 5 digit number.

Again: What I listed above is what I figured out for myself. No warranty that it is correct! I just ordered the kit. Maybe I will get the titanium and aluminium screw kit later.

Mine arrived also today - thank you Champ!

I was happy as I noticed that batteries are about 9mm closer to the centerline than in my 05R which is "right-balanced"...

rampal, can you take a picture of the motor mount attached to the lower deck? id like to see the battery side of the mount. to see how Tamiya "shaped" the motor mount so that the batteries moves in 9mm as mentioned in previous posts. thanks!

I think from Champ they are about $335 + shipping

I think one of the big negatives is the reduced size behind the motor for the esc. For those of us that have brushless systems...I am doubting the GTB will fit?

yo' Hebiki!!!

I probably will take a while to build this one, as I have tons of work and travel to do... hope it helps.

Three comments:
1) I miss the air scoop, it should be here....
2) I will try to put my GTB in the receiver area, and the receiver behind.... o even on top the servo (KO low profile and spektrum micro receiver)... the only annoyance will be the GTB cap....
3) As in the MSXX, there are tape holes for 5 cell... sweet!!!

by the way, I bought mine with titanium and blue aluminum screws, total price kit + screws was 43800 yen

It was around $380USD including shipping & PayPal-charges... (current price is maybe few bucks higher as I got preorder rebate)

rampal. thanks my friend!!!

not sure if anyone else is thinking this.... but what if you took the existing bottom deck...made an exact duplicate, BUT with one modification... move the motor mount forward so that the belts are equal length. then use an existing top deck from one of the many companys that already has a graphite conversion.

would that be a neat idea? (jason from BMI are you hearing this? )
