No the BMI is 3mm the stock chassis is 2.6mm. The screws for the motor are recessed just like the stock chassis so it doesn't scrap the ground.

Only on the oneway & solid axle. But even then only if I hit something. If the diffs are shimmed correctly they are fine. I still have some of the old gears that are holding up fine.

do u mean tat your diff gear wont strip if u put on with front & rear diffirential? it will only strips if u run one-way front and solid axle at the rear?

how is it like to drive with rear solid axle ? the car will understeer, right but stable?

It can still strip, but not as bad as the oneway or solid axle. I havent stripped one on a diff, but plenty of people have. The solid axle is better in the front than the rear IMO, I found in the rear too much oversteer.

A solid axle in the front causes too much oversteer. I guess you're a loosey goosey driver which takes lots of skill to become one.

Paig I haven't tried it yet. With no diffs in the front, it'll definately whip the back. I think it's safer to drive a one way in the front and solid axle in the back like the 1/8 on road machines.

I guess a lot of things come down to driving style. I find with the solid front it pulls the car through the corners nicely. Slow in & fast out. It is similar to the oneway but you have brakes at both ends.

Yes I have the Factory Team as well, the centre shaft seems the same as the other blue ones.
