There are no problems with motor torque with a brushless motor.

Hong Kong and Japan, it is nice looking car and it should work great in theory but I could never get mine to hook up well.

And you would continue to do so if you don't look in the right places. Get on the Tamiya website, find the manual, look up the part numbers and then you know exactly what you need. I think you will find that most current TRF parts fit the car as long as you don't need to replace the chassis plates. This is also a good opportunity to experiment with other TRF parts not intended for the car but which may fit.

I had Tamiya TB Evo 5, good car but eventually LHS stocks common used parts. However if you have local Tamiya agent they be able to special order from Japan.

If I were to compare the TB Evo 5 & the MS. For sure the Evo 5 MS has more steering. Which indeed much better.

There are also cars such as TB03. But the acceptance is lower.. I m not sure in US/UK.

Oh and just being honest. I race a TB-03 and its a sloppy disaster. I don't recommend it.

I'm not seeing a belt either, but there's a shaft going from end to end.

Even if you can see from the photo if its a shaft or a belt, the bevel gears are a give away. The biggest problem with this car is that it never made it to production and one 1 or 2 prototypes exist. It hasn't been proven and even it you still want one, you can't buy one.
