the 'lower' end tamiya kits have never come with hex screws...the "r" or "pro" kits sometimes do, but definitely all the TRF kits come that way

I usually get my screws from rtlfasteners.com - good prices and nice packs

here is the updated version of the one I have - http://www.walmart.com/ip/BLACK-DECK...river/24811778 - and its less then the one I got

the one i have worked for putting wheel nuts on so it should have enough umph for the kit... like I've said, never once had to use an electric screwdriver for any tamiya kit (minus the enduro cars, because of time limits - tt01 built in under 40 minutes, including all electronics), and that includes the older ones

sometimes using these things over stress the plastics and cause more issues in the long run then the couple seconds it saves you

Default 28, 29, 30, 31 & 32) mounting motor, servo, ESC and receiver

I always like this part the most. Had to scrounge up some electronics to get this thing going. Just using the stock motor for now. I have a case full of 27t stock motors that need used up. This is just for fun for me and my son.

Yea this is definitely one of tamiyas entry level kits. I liked building it though. It slowed me down taking pictures along the way but I feel like I caught a few mistakes I made. This is a huge step up from the ff01 fwd. When you do an enduro race the build is part of the event?

Test drive today was cold out but I found a nice patch of fresh pavement to drive on. Had fun with it. Got board with the silver can and put in a epic27t. Killed the diff. Put in a spec-r gear diff and gearcase when I got home. I'm gonna have fun with this kit.
