Default n00b needs help with taking off driveshaft

Heya guys. I'm VERY new to the hobby, and I am not quite sure how to do this, but this is what I'd like to do.

I got this car, and I was wanting to take out the driveshaft to make it rear wheel drive only.

Now, there is no manual, and there is nothing that came with the car since it's RTR. HOWEVER, I want to be able to mess with it some. Now my first hangup is that the front of the box says "TC-03" but, from the best that I've searched, Tamiya doesn't make a TC-03, but rather a TB-03.

From the best that I can ascertain, the body looks very similar to a TT-01, so I'll use that for reference.

So, is it difficult to take it off (the driveshaft)? I don't know how much work goes into the car to make it in the state that it is in...

The link provided is where I got it...

I can probably take a picture of it...it looks quite similar to the TT-01...either way, it doesn't look too horrible to take apart, I just don't know what all is required to put it back together...

Looks to be more like a clone of a TB02 and i would imagine it it comes apart like one. Just take the front drive shafts out and you'll have a rear wheel drive car.

You'll need to leave the main drive shaft and front diff in the car to support the spur gear for the motor.

looks like a TT01 to me from the views I see. You can just take out the front wheel dogbones and it will be rear wheel drive only like stated above. If you don't have a manual go the Tamiya website and look at a TT01 manual and it will show you what you are looking for.
