How is the durability? I dont expect to be ramming walls as fast as possible but will it take some abuse?
Getting the dremel out on the car will only do so much, yes it will make it lighter, but you may loose some of the chassis strength on a kit chassis.

Ive had some great results with the ta05 and I will put some of that down to the chassis, its strong, good quality carbon (make sure you superglue the edges to stop any delamination) and very good on carpet with the right setup.

Ive raced it for a year and not broken anything the chassis at all. Need I say more?

3racing parts are really nice today, most of their parts dont require any dremel fitting. they have increased their quality ALOT in the last years, but havent increased the price

alot better than for example GPM.. havent had a good thing from them for years..

In the mini-world (mini-z, 1/18 cars) # racing, Atomic and GPM are THE names for hopups. I use a lot of the 3Racing stuff and I love them.
