Thanks for the tip Justpassedu
Are the gears metal? If not you may want to invest in a better servo with metal gears if you plan to do anymore than run it on smooth pavement.

No it's just the stock servo. I'll see how the new set of gears hold up. If they strip out again, then yea I am getting a Hitec Metal Geared for it.

Is that a 540 size?

why would anyone want a brushed version , brushless is way more efficent , only reason i could think is if you were going to upgrade to bl with another companies electronics and your trying to save a few$'s but the bl guy will give you your moneys worth in the long run...

It does look like one, but I don't think a 540 would fit to be honest.

From what other people are saying, yes. It can fit M chassis bodies. I don't know this for myself, as this is my first sub 1/10 scale vehicle, this is just what I've read.

most M chassis is only 160mm wide ..this one is 185mm wide





You only need to extend the chassis 2" to use an AE86
Can't remember who did this

Either by cutting one up and bolting strips of carbon or fibreglass on ..but that leaves a gap in the middle
Or cut two and bolt them together with carbon or fibreglass for an almost seamless finish

If you look closely at the 2nd photo You can see He used the first method, there's a gap along the side
