Still waiting for mine to arrive......so delayed! Should be here in the next two weeks, did you install any hopups? Bearings etc?

Great! I too considered the Willy's Wheeler paint scheme for my Dancing Rider, but chose another "Tamiya nostalgia" theme. Still waiting for stickers, but hope to complete it within a couple of weeks.

Is anyone going to do comedy feet sticking out the bottom on each side?

( they could move in the wind as it goes forward etc)

no?

Just me?

where would you stick them? :) 

they'd need to be pretty high up, probably above the bodypost... to look scale per the full torso figurine

Considering going brushless, find it fast enough however if run on a 2S Li-Ion pack.

Bit worried about the front suspension when running on rougher surfaces than flat asphalt or concrete.

You’d hang them out the bottom of the Bodyshell I think they’d look ok.

Everybody’s Dancing Queen looks cool. I bought one last night when I was at the hobby shop  

1256DDD4-886C-4C1B-9DDB-41AB1749781C_zps

Today I ordered the bearings and battery. Any other hop ups I should build into it from the start?

I guess it's very unlikely that you ordered the bearing set from JV-E-Shop on eBay? But being one of relatively few sources for T3-01 aftermarket parts so far, I guess there is a slight chance you did. In case you did; I feel obliged to inform that I got my bearing set and a couple of other parts for the T3-01 from them and instead of the required 1060 bearings, I got 1260 bearings. Thankfully, I had enough 1060 bearings already for which I didn't have any purpose, so I could build the model without delay, but it was still annoying.

As for other hop-ups, using blue TRF O-rings (# 42137) in the fork for a bit of damping is suggested in the manual. Apart from that, I've done no changes to the chassis. For the body, I got ABS headlight and taillight reflectors and instrument cluster and now I'm waiting for my custom stickers from MCI.

By the way, talking about aftermarket parts for the T3-01, the aftermarket body from RCon that was announced some weeks ago, is available. Sooner than I expected!

I don't know how well it works personally but I've seen owners of other vehicles say that using a bit of that super soft packaging foam inside the dampers can give a sort of dampening effect. Not as good as a real oil shock of course but it does work to a degree apparently.

Mmm that sounds like a good thing to test. I tried the O-ring that didn't make me happy.

I'll try the foam idea, or drill out the fork a bit to give the o-ring a little more room

Here is the bearing list:

4* 3x6x2,5

8* 6x10x3

2* 8x12x3,5

I also added the Yeah Racing CVDs, which will give you the ability to run normal 12mm hex adapter to modify the rear width a little
