Decided to pick myself up a winter build to keep me busy. I've had one of these in the past and thought it was a cool little platform. I ended up selling it and have regretted it ever since. Taking advantage of some holiday deals, I picked up the Beetle rally version and a few options to keep it interesting. This is my 4th Tamiya mini, and joins my pair of M06's and an M07. So now I've got all three flavors - RWD, FWD, and AWD! The kit and a few goodies. A must imo for this chassis with smaller mini tires - the TL01 speed tuned gearset. Picked up the optional motor plate. Not a flashy option, but I know it's in there. I'm a sucker for Tamiya Blue. Rear diff is stock, just assembled with a light touch of ceramic grease. Front diff was stuffed with AW grease. It's my usual setup for any AWD onroad chassis. I'm not sure I understand the inserts for the bearings in the front of the chassis. There must be a reason for them, but I have no idea what it is. Since I've built one in the past, the build is going pretty quick. I picked up the aluminum center shafts for all three wheelbases for options in the future. I added the aluminum servo mount, but forgot to get a pic before I sandwiched the chassis halves together. Next: Suspension.
