the only parts weakness that I found was with the front diff case. It holds the droop screws and if you slap the wall hard you could break the part that holds the droop screws off. its a BITCH to replace the diff case on a race day if you do that... its happened to me once, so just try to stay off the boards

Also mine is still for sale!

I dont really agree with that, the front setup on the RR is more robust than the R, and the rear hubs take more abuse on the RR than the R also. Also the RR is easier to drive, which could keep you off the boards.

the TZ engine has more than enough power to compete. Plus the engine is not inconsistant
