Well it depends on electronics......but mine weighed in only 5g. over ROAR weight with rubber tires including personal transponder, and a 3 racing motor heat sink.

I would agree and the maintenance is quite low because it is semi enclosed. James it is still not a top of the line car in standard form. The batteries are set quite wide. You know what I think ...... Evo 5

Funny...same thing happened to me. I'm usually quiet... but after reading abt your experience, I wanted to find out if others experienced the same. I've been thinking of getting universals but not sure which to get. Any recommendations? Thanks.

Hey my girl and I are building Two 05's One has a Sphere/Neo 4 Star Spektrum and I will be insalling LiPoly from Orion/ peak. Her is a first time car I set her up with a cobalt stock motor JR synthesized and a Quantum two ESC . We both went carbon graphite hop ups,Trf shocks, front universals Any suggeations on spur pinion size on a large asphalt track? Also what's the largest spur that will fit this car ? I also wondered does anyone know where I can get 1A Suspension blocks other than on my 415MS. and last question I ordered a Subaru body from speedtech rc does anyone know it's handling characteristics?

I've used the 3Racing universals on the front of my TA05 (stock suspension) for 3 race weeks and haven't had any issues or noticed any wear.

The steel one is cheaper, but lots heavier, but also, MUCH MORE DURABLE!

problems with non genuine cheap aftermarket parts are that they are very low quality. Those top cad CVD's could be very weak and can snap in a accident.

Buy once and forget about it
