It should. Bit you'd probably be better off just updating the arms and driveshafts on the 3.0TE

kyosho iirc.

D815 comes with metal rotors and bonded pads. Personally - over rated on buggy imo.

They'll just be off another brand car. Could be off anything. Pretty much every 1/8th brand other than losi uses a steel rotor with bonded pads.

I prefer the losi rotor and pads. The thick pads dont flex like other brands when they get hot.

That's also an option, but first the car must be tried by mere mortals and not just the top pros

I might be missing something but I don't see why you wouldn't get the T-E 3.0 then add the arms/cv shafts etc. when they are available. If you do the conversion the battery tray puts the battery really high off the chassis.

I wouldn't be so worried about what Maifield is running. He's on another planet from the rest of us.

Asking for is part numbers I would like to run the same brake set up I tried stuff last year and I couldn't find anything that would fit I know I might have to draw out the holes a little bit but I'm fine with that, I used to have a hot bodies 815 and I really liked the brakes they stayed consistent throughout the whole race I feel like.TLR loses some of its consistency in the longer mains

Pretty sure he's testing TLR stuff. Don't think you'll be able to buy what he has

If they think that after testing it is worth it I am sure they will become available.
