Given that, I'd go for the FF03. It would handle the dust better I should think.

Thank you for the tips. I managed to fix the dif issue. a little bit of glue from the hardware store and tightening the diff a little re solved my issue. the 5.5t motor is quite powerful and yes there is a little wheelspin however the speed control has programming so i set this up. It is super fun, i am amazed at how stable this FF03 runs. right now i think its best i change the spur gear to 102t and pinion to 29t which will give me less spin and more speed. I bought the stock tuned motor which i will run in the car for Tamiya cup coming up in september in my country South Africa.

Rubber cement is available quite cheaply from most hardware stores, it might be sold as a shoe repair glue.

The upgraded motor is going to put more load on the drivetrain, naturally - personally speaking a 5.5 is a waste in a front-drive car because you will just wheelspin the performance away and create a bunch of other handling problems - these cars are at their best with relatively slow motors.
