Definitely!!! They are a pleasure to deal with!

I have to say, i think you are the only person i've ever seen that actually uses the body clips to hold the bearings in like the directions show

i guess that's what makes you so fast
Ha ha. It's a great idea
Kit is far superior than other mini's in terms of quality

Is there a part number for the 33mm shafts for the dcjs?

Thanks! Pricey options. These two add at least another $100 to the cost of the car.

Does the kit include bearings at least?

Yes, it comes with the inner bearings which are smaller ,so the axles work properly


The screw kit is nice, for the fact that your using a 2 mm instead of Phillips
And the weight savings

I meant does the M-07 Concept car kit come with bearings or is it bushings?

Yes, the screw kit is nice. We all wish Tamiya would ditch the Phillips screws!

Looks good! I hate Tamiya's fascination with putting the steering servo as far away from the front wheels as possible. They do that on a lot of their stuff.

My M07 manual included a somber warning about using my new RC Tank properly. I'll have to resist the temptation to drive this thing without the turret installed.
