  21. I buy a Tamiya for build a complet Tamiya RC… and i hope that i can install without problem on the car. My expertise with the RC car is too small… with 25 years behind If i have a problem, i could used a TEU-101BK. It is more compact ! The advantage with the TBLE-02S is that you can install a brushless engine (more performant). I discover it when i try to run it Brunshless motor = 3 connections electrics files https://tamico.de/mediafiles/manuals/service/300045057_TBLE-02S.pdf Classic motor = 2 connections electrics files https://tamico.de/mediafiles/manuals/service/300045029_TEU-101BK.pdf Sorry
