since we are on the subject of tires, I soaked a couple of broken rear rims/with tires on. in a bucket of acetone. to reuse the tires, (like I have done for 2 years) and one of the tires shrunk up so small that you could not get a new rim back on the tire. the other tire is just fine, anybody else ever have that happen?

I ordered a few things before I start building. I ordered bearings for TT-01. Just looked at the box the kit came in. It says TT01E. Will that matter?

No, the TT01e is a materials change, not dimensional. The TT01 is all abs. the TT01e has some polycarbonate parts.

Nope, but the Acetone completely dissolved the wheel plastics! LOL

This is my second kit build. I watched a YouTube video where a guy said it took him 90 minutes to build a EuroTruck. It took me 60 minutes to realize that I dropped the GB2 spur gear stopper on the floor.
Assembly is going slower than the guy on YT.

That is a plastic spacer piece between the two ball bearings (or white plastic bushings if using the supplied bits). It is on the small parts tree with the servo saver parts.

Is the Protek battery the only competitive option now? I have a few Peak powermax 4200s available to use but am ready to purchase new packs. Obviously 2 peaks vs 1 Protek is a benefit when I have to pit 3 trucks.

Where are you running at? I haven't seen any Proteks yet at One Eighth Racers.
