My evo came in at 1353, ready to race. Going to gain a few more as I add the wing and the stickers.

Need a little help. Need to see how the brushless motors are put onto the FF03. Can someone post pics of how they did it and what you need to do this.

For standard sensored bl motors you'd need a spacer between the motor and motor plate for the soldertabs to clear the left motor support. Tamiya makes one for the TB03D (pictured)

LRP X20 17.5

just need a long sensor wire... with the LRP you dont need the spacer between the motor and motor plate because you have enought hole to put the motor at the right place and the soldertabs are perfect fit !!

BL motors with the solder tabs on top may not fit as the motor cannot be inserted deep enough. The cooling plate mentioned already might help in some cases.

I went with a Speed Passion 17.5 motor that uses the bullet connectors on the end bell which eliminated any issues.

After having installed the motor in mine, I ordered some 16g wire and plan on pre wiring the motor, installing it, and then soldering the leads straight to the speed control for length.

What combo spring and oil do you use for the front suspension of your FF03 EVO because in my case in the long fast corner the plastic bumper and the frame rub the carpet alot... my ride height is set to 5.5 mm I use Tamiya blue spring in the front with Associated 45 grade silicone ?

I think it is not easy to find a good set up on the evo front suspension. I have not run it much yet but I have made no progress on the set up so far. See picture for a Evo set up from some driver at TITC Race

When I ran mine this past weekend, it was unpredictably snap sideways loose. Sometimes early in the turn, sometimes in the middle, sometimes late. Was dependent on how much weight transfer you had in the car, how much wheel, and how hard you were on the gas.

No matter what changes I did to the rear, it didn't help fix it. Car felt different, but center off it wasn't an improvement. Next time I go back to the track, I'm putting the baseline rear back on and try changing only the front.

Next Saturday I'll try a new configuration for the battery. I will try the same configuration as the Tamiya M05 to see if the car will be more stable and fast cornering than the initial configuration

I dropped the idea of ​​style M05 battery. I reassemble as before and decide to work little harder the balance side... 60g of the opposite side of the battery and that's it !!
