Rctech will not let you post pictures until after you have several post on this forum. Ok so are you building a kit? Some of the parts don't look like the instructions. Is that it? Some racers don't use the battery strap, but instead they use fiberglass reinforced strapping tape.

If you need to post pictures, it's best to use a web based service like Photobucket or similar. Simply find an online picture service, create an account and then you can upload and share pictures.

Looks like the FF-03 with the shock setup from the Evo version. There seems to be a DIY velcro strap for the battery and I do not recognize the plastic brace in front over the motor. Is the chassis all plastic?

I'm almost sure that's not a ff03 shock setup is different, and it doesn't look very "tamiya"

The body posts are off as well
