I believe the ones for the fwd car will work. I haven't felt the car has needed them yet.. So have not bothered

i understand, but i had some problems with entering fast corners.
at first, the sabre will not turn into the direction of the corner, and then, after getting slower, the car moves smooth and directly through the corners...

normally a sway bar helps in this situation

i will check out the fwd ones... thnx

Had the chance to race the mini sabre last weekend, in 13,5t fixed timining blinky class. after a long time absence my driving itself was poor. and i missed about 0,3-0,4 sec against the other "real" TC drivers. (Xrays, Yokomos, ...)
maybe a spool would bring some 0,1, 0,2sec but i was running 1.000.000 diff. will order the spool in the near future for a try

but still it was funny fighting with this underdog...

Haha good stuff. Should have mine this week. Hoping I have an esc small enough to fit back there.

here an short video, the orange car is the sabre mini.
as you can see, some grip rolls costs a lot of time, but i think this was due to the shorty batteries and the unbalanced weight.

nevertheless a lot of fun

This chassis is very cool. Does your oil diffs leak at all?
Also I'm sure it is, but these are 210mm wheel base, correct?

I have the FWD Sabre Mini and figured out how to mount a Tamiya Rover Mini body without drilling new holes on the body. I was checking out the 4WD's instructions just now, and I think I can fit a Rover Mini body on this as well, if 210mm.. hummm.

building it due to instructions, it is 210mm.
i got about 220mm by turning the spacers around. so that the ride BRZ body fits perfectly, and the long batteries will also fit.

the mini body did not fit, due to the front bumper. i did not make it run. but it wasn't my biggest wish to get it fit

Thanks, Aitutaki! Does your diff leak at all?

On the FWD, here's a picture of how I cut the bumper, mounted the front posts, and rear posts, to get the Rover Mini body to fit my FD. I had to use my M-Four body posts for the rear and drill new holes on the lower deck (if anyone wants to mount it). I think I can do the same on the 4WD's..

From the instructions manual on the 4WD, I would have to place the receiver on top of my servo and mount the ESC where the receiver goes to make room for the rear posts.
