Beware- KY9 who invested a load of money in the Tech Racing stuff said that the ball ends that come with their turnbuckles are NOT compatable with the original Tamiya brass balls...you need to change those too!!

Wot...no front one way!!!

the Tech turnbuckles come with different ball-ends for the ones that need it. Some of the turnbuckles utilize the same ballends and connectors

I don't know about the "lot of cutting needed" stuff. I kinda like hop ups that just drop in and.....you know.....work! I wonder how long it will be before other companies start developing hop ups for the car.

I modified the stock motor mount and cut a rectangle in the chassis for the motor to freely adjust for a 27 tooth pinion. Motor does not break the plain of the chassis so it won't have road rash.

Did anyone else get two sets of some parts in your kit? I had two sets of the beveled gears, spur, and motor mount.

So, the aftermarket parts FOR the F201 don't fit??? Nice. I'll wait for someone to make working aftermarket parts.

Just the motor mount. the front and rear universals, delrin diffs, and front one-way fit perfectly. Graphite chassis is soon to be released.

I think the Tech Racing motor mount will work best with their graphite chassis....but at Yen 7800......that really hurts for a piece of graphite!!!!!

Rumour has it (from Manticore!) that a local (Hong Kong) company 3 Racing will start making options for the F201. Judging by what they have come out with so far for the V1R, the quality should be pretty reasonable but the price will be significantly cheaper!!!!!

You may be able to get hold of 3 Racing stuff from Control Centre!

My question is where are all these dang companies that are making hop-ups for minis and micros? I want some of those companies to realize the potential of the F201 and start pumping out hop-ups that fit and are availible here in the U.S.

Not that ordering from over seas is all that hard.
