stainless hex hardware from knk or comparable.
That's if you dont like soft Phillips hardware.
It doesn't bother everyone though.

But yeah just slap it together and prepare for the most on road fun you ever had!!!
Congrats! Santa is pretty darn cool.

Very nice! Philips is fine with Tamiya IMO. Plastic is pretty soft.

Doesn't "need" a thing, build it and have fun! Later on, bearings and oil shocks would be the best bang for the buck upgrades.

I finished my MF, I forgot to post pics over here. I'll have to track them down.

Here's my MF kit... picked up a few goodies. Aluminum shafts in all 3 WB lengths, motor mount, speed tuned gears, super mini CVA's , servo mount and the YR suspension conversion. Also a carbon rear shock tower that I seem to have lost somewhere. I'll find it eventually.


And through the magic of the internet, got the car basically built already. The YR kit is nice, curious to see how much difference it makes.


Biggest difference is in the back where it relocates the upper camber link down. Huge change from the stock setup.


Finished chassis! I'll eventually go with a 17.5 motor, but using the stock one for now.



And with the body, stage left. My M06 I picked up a while ago got a new shell too, stage right. I do love my Miata's and the new Tamiya shell is stunning. Just have to get some paint on them.

Nice! Funny that I had to open this on my phone/Tapatalk to see the pics.

Thanks for sharing! Santa brought Red Dead Redemption 2 also so I haven't started on the TT-01 yet...
