I don't think I know enough Chinese to write out a setup sheet in it..

Cutting the top deck helps take out double-steer entering corners with mod motors, try it out and tell me if I'm wrong.

The rear gear diff has 4 planetary gears inside but you can run it with 2 gears to change the feel of it(and make it lighter too)

There has been a revision to the thrust bearing assembly that will resolve the issue with the diff's longevity. It is available to the public now.

There is a new thrust bearing assembly. The original one did not hold up so well and the diffs did not last. Serpent identified this issue and released an improved thrust bearing that will solve the issue. Purchase the new thrust bearing and install it and the problem is solved.

Clear enough?
