Good to know. I am not a newbie to RC just a newbie to the onroad scene. I plan on running my new mamba max pro in the car but have not decided on a motor yet. I have a spare associated DS1015 servo that I will throw in it, overkill I know but it is what I got. Got the DX3s so I just need a motor and I am set.

TB03 is a great car. And if you ever want to go and race it, you'll have a car that people hate to admit they got beat by

The sealed drivetrain design is awesome. I recently made a rally car out of a spare TB03 I had....driving it though the dirt, jumping off things, driving down gravel roads and no issues yet....its been really fun to mess with. So driving it on the public streets near your house you won't have any issues.

Its a tough car, you'll enjoy it.
Will this lipo style fit with the wires coming out of the side?

Also, how important is is to have hard case over soft lipos?

I cant speak to the Lipo fitment issues, as I don't have the car. I can say that a hard case Lipo is safer then a soft lipo.

HPI Pro4. car was amazing! out of the box it's set-up is almost perfect for asphalt and rubber tire carpet.
kyosho trf-5 (plastic ready-set car) is a close second.
