Balance is good.

CS Gearing is good.

I've installed a 86T spur for a test this week. I'm ready to sample final gearing for a different track. These ball end screws are just for looks. I got sick of the stupid screws in the "Pro" kit and these were an interesting alternative without spending 2000 yen for a cover.

The TA-06 so called "PRO" kit is far from it. I've replaced a lot of items on this chassis. I had to get some hub clamps which in my opinion should be included.

And the suspension alignment is done with plastic items. These would be the only remaining item I'd like to change. They should be ashamed to call this a "PRO" kit. I modified the rear shock tower with a customised, VDF item installed for body mount preference.

It's for sale as I'm only going to run the DRB from now on. Let me know if you're interested. It's very nice machine.
