Can anyone tell me what color coding for the Tamiya Stabilizer set? It has black and silverish. Which one is hard?

Also what do you guys recommend on a flat high speed track? I was planning hard stabilizers up front and nothing on rear

What is the best way to make the drivetrain more efficient ?

I am struggling with speed in the mini....We run handout mabuchi motors ?

I am running universals up front with a TA03 ball diff.

Let me know...

There is no way to make it more efficient..... The problem with losing speed on exit is mainly due to wheel spin. You could change to TA03 ball diff to minimise wheel spin or try fixed axle.

With fixed axle inside ( I haven't try it ) I want to know the durability of pinion gear, spur gear, and universal. Are they going to last or they need frequent replacement ?

I agree its nothing but a bling-bling. the alum clamp type(fiined) heatsink is much better.

Your missing the alum servo holder, high torque servo saver, mo3 quick release battery, light wieght king pins, and if you're really OC, the alum steering knuckles, rear hubs. Do you have universals installed?

Car comes with alum steering knuckles, 2 deg rear hubs, and M03 universals. Only thing left that I might put are blue servo holders and blue screws.

Rubbers are actually Pit Shumitsu (not sure of the spelling)

Default Ball Diffs

What is the difference between the Manta Ray ball diff and the TA03 used in the Mini? What are the strengths and weaknesses of both?
