I don't know for sure as I haven't had the v3, but about 18 months ago the new motors got noticably faster than the rest. I suspect the V4 is much better than the V3 and would pay for the newer one...

I wonder about this too. The difference for me is it was a $3 pulley to try it since I have the TA07 pro so cheap and easy to check. Stupid thing is I have to change my motor to a spec motor so I...

I find I need a fan on 4wd cars but not 2wd. In the stock classes you are usually pushing the motor to its limit with timing and gearing so need a fan to keep that cool. The ESC is usually fine...

Sorry I linked the wrong part, that is the 18T pulkey, not the pulley holder.

If you have the MS with the 20T pulley already, why do you want the pulley holder?

That sounds like what happened to mine, this was a 17.5T in a 2wd buggy. Its normal. The magnets are really strong which is why its hard to turn by hand, and in the car it feels like its binding but...

Does the rear carbon damper stay come with spacers for the body posts, or have people made adaptors up? Or do you just make new holes in the body for the new location?
